Bwabwata National Park

About the area

Bwabwata National Park is a large, but little-known, sub-tropical game reserve in north-eastern Namibia. The park is an amalgamation of the Mahango and Caprivi Game Reserves, and is an exceptional big game and birding safari destination. Bwabwata is known for wetlands, floodplains, and woodlands—not many places allow you to experience the variety of sand dunes, swamps, forests, and green river beds as this beautiful region does. Bwabwata is known as the 'people's park'—the strong focus on rural development assures local communities also benefit from tourist infrastructure.
