Nestled on the bank of the Kwando River in one of the permanent channels, and
located between permanent water and grass-swept plains, MALYO WILDERNESS CAMP took pride in our commitment to tread lightly on the Earth – the result is an organic architecture that blends seamlessly with one of the most breathtaking landscapes in Namibia.
MALYO WILDERNESS CAMP is rewarding, both spiritually and physically and again reinforced the knowledge in my mind about why Southern Africa is such a special part of our Planet. A region that must, at all costs, be preserved for future generations.
Accommodation and camping on the Kwando, Namibia’s Hidden Gem!
We have tented chalets available, as well as a fantastic camping ground under the huge, cool indigenous trees. Camp in Namibia has never been closer to nature. Stay in the Caprivi for an extended time and experience the richness of the Wetlands. The whole area around Malyo is fertile and largely undeveloped, with lush riverine ecosystems supporting abundant game and birdlife, with the Mudumu National Park just minutes’ drive away.
With over 450 noted species of birds, the Caprivi is one of the best ever places for birders! Never miss out on the Southern Carmine Bee-eaters (Photo right) who comes back each year in Spring to nest in the banks of the rivers. See our birding page for more info!
With Malyo Wilderness Camp in the middle of the yearly Trekking Route for elephants and Buffalo, we offer the perfect base to explore the abundance of fauna! Mamili National Park is just Minutes away, and Bwabwata National Parks and Mudumu (Nkasa Rupara) National Park is within an hour’s drive.
Experience the most brilliant in sunsets from Malyo Wilderness Camp, where nature has not spared the richness of using the whole pallet of colours.
