An intimate safari camp found along the backwaters of the Kwando River

As one of the few lodges uniquely situated inside Bwabwata National Park, Nambwa Lagoon Camp offers 5 Meru-style tents set along the backwaters of the Kwando River with views across the vast floodplains that surround the area. Look out for the large herds of elephants that frequent the camp in pursuit of the camel thorn trees. Lions, wild dogs, leopards, and rare roan and sable antelopes can be spotted too! Furthermore, the area around Nambwa is well known by birders for boasting over 300 bird species. Set in the 300.000 ha Mayuni Conservancy, guests can delight in safari activities like game drives, bush walks, cultural village visits, bush breakfasts, and water-level dependent boat cruises.
