Nambwa Tented Lodge
Bwabwata National Park

The magical Nambwa Tented Lodge sits deep within Namibia’s lush Bwabwata National Park in the far North Eastern corner of Namibia.  Perched on the banks of a tributary Kwando River, it has 10 tented suites all nestled among the trees.   Each tented suite exudes comfort and style with their creamy and soft interiors and wooden floors.  The suites have their own sitting areas with comfy sofas and super bathrooms.   They each have a large, decked veranda overlooking either the river in front or the waterhole making a perfect escape to relax and enjoy the night sounds or to watch the fantastic birdlife in the area.

The suites are linked by wooden walkway to the large and impressive main area which is built on different levels of wooden decks.  The dining and sitting areas are tented with an outside dining area for those warm summer evenings.  The sitting area has large, squishy sofas and chairs, perfect for sitting and enjoying a night cap or enjoy a pot of tea.

Activities from Nambwa focus on game drives, bush walks in the surrounding forest and boat trips (water levels permitting) and night drives which are a great way to see the elusive and magical nocturnal wildlife.  There is also an opportunity to visit a local village.

The wildlife at Nambwa is as interesting as it is varied.  Unlike Namibia’s ‘desert’ camps, Nambwa is a water based camp and there are large concentrations of elephant in the area in the dry season (June to October) as well as roan and eland.   Lion, leopard, hyena and wild dogs can also be spotted although not in the same number or frequency to its neighbouring Chobe National Park in Botswana.  The birding at Nambwa is exceptional however especially on the seasonal boat trips.

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.
Marcel Proust

Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
