Bwabwata National Park
Bwabwata National Park is positioned at the entrance way to the Zambezi Region, a narrow sliver of land that makes up the northeast of Namibia and is a popular route to Victoria Falls. In fact the width of this region is only a mere 20 kilometres of land between Angola and Botswana; and is a lush fertile region bordered by two rivers, the Okavango and the Kwando. The area also includes an important primary migration route for elephants from Botswana to Angola.
Although the park has only been formally recognised since 2007, successful rehabilitation, sensitive conservation and a crack-down on poaching means there is plenty to see at Bwabwata. Remarkably, more than 5,000 Caprivi people live within the park, working on long-term conservation initiatives. The proximity to a water source means plant and wildlife is steadily flourishing; hippos, buffalo and elephants are regularly seen, and the landscape is an interesting mix of forest and low scrub.
Staying within the National Park is a must to enhance your wilderness adventure. At luxurious Nambwa Tented Lodge, add an extra dimension to your safari experience as the elevated tents amongst the treetops mean walkways high up in the forest and easy viewing of the meandering animals below you.
