Namibia’s Caprivi region is one of Southern Africa’s emerging wildlife spots, just waiting to be explored. A little off the beaten track, Eastern Caprivi is largely a river country, enclosed by the Zambezi, Kwando, Linyanti, and Chobe rivers. It is marked by mopane woodlands, camelthorn, Natal mahogany and mangosteen. The flood plains, oxbow lakes and conserved swampland were once home to one of the greatest concentration of wildlife in Namibia till heavy poaching over the last couple of decades ravaged the land. The good news is that the wildlife has been slowly returning in recent years. The best game viewing season is during the dry winter months of June to October. You will find herds of elephants, hippos, buffalo, zebras, kudu and impala in abundance, together with crocodiles, warthogs, and baboons. Eastern Caprivi is a great destination for bird lovers too, with waterfront flocks of egrets, herons, cranes, and plovers, nesting by its many rivers, lakes and watering holes.
Nambwa Lagoon Camp, located by the famous Horseshoe Lagoon of Nambwa Island in Namibia’s Bwabwata National Park, offers you a cozy and comfortable stay. Stay at any of the five exclusive camp tents built on wooden platforms, each with a private viewing deck and sitting area overlooking the Kwando River and its floodplains.
