The Bwabwata National Park (old West Caprivi National Park) is 5715 square km and stretch over 200 km from the Okavango River to the Kwando River. One of the most enjoyed places in Bwabwata is Horse-shoe; where the river made a horse-shoe. This deep part of the river has been cut off from the main stream; and offer a welcome stop to enjoy a picnic while watching the Elephant, Hippo and many other animals visiting the calm waters.
The Mudumu National Park is one of the most common visited reserves with the animals in true natural habitat. The Mudumu has easy access and good roads – remember to pay the Park Fees (as with the other parks as well!) if you do a self-drive game-view.
Elephant herds are commonly found in their treks to other grazing sites, and the roar of a lion or two is not uncommon. The Mudumu is just minutes’ drive away from Malyo Camp!
The Mamili Game Reserve has been renamed to Nkasa Rupara Nationa Park and includes Nkasa Island and the southeastern “tip” of the Caprivi, reflects Africa untouched by civilization.
Due to very high levels of the Kwando River since 2007, most of Mamili is now swampland and can pose a danger to visit without a guide, while certain areas is totally unreachable.
Between the 450 birds species recorded in this area of the Kwando, the 35 large Fauna species and multiple small species as well as the interesting and unique flora in this region, Malyo Rest Camp is the perfect spot to experience the Kwando Region of the Caprivi, Namibia’s Water Wonderland.
