Bwabwata National Park
Bwabwata National Park is a relatively newly proclaimed park, in what is known as the Kavango and Zambezi regions of Namibia (Formerly known as the Caprivi Strip). There are two hunting areas in the park, both approximately 275 000 ha (670 000 acres) in size.
The Eastern hunting block is known as the Kwando Core area, or Bwabwata East and the Western block, is known as Buffalo core area.
It is home to some of the best elephant, buffalo, leopard and plains game populations left in Africa, with a very small hunting quota, ensuring exceptional trophy quality. In fact, 65 plus pound elephants and a 42 inch and bigger buffalo is not the exception, and if a hunter is fit, virtually assured.
The park extends from the Kavango River in the West, to the Kwando River in the East, with Angola to the North and Botswana and the Okavango Delta to the South. The split between the East and West blocks are at the Kavango/ Zambezi provincial border.
Ndumo Safaris is in the fortunate position to own the Eastern hunting block of this much-coveted Park, and offer exceptional elephant, buffalo or leopard safaris from our well-appointed camp on the banks of the Kwando river. The camp is built on wooden platforms, with canvas and reed walls and thatched roofs. All rooms have a view onto the Kwando river.
Bwabwata East is a hunting paradise, with the vegetation ranging from the swampy floodplains of the Kwando, to huge forestry areas consisting of camelthorn-, leadwood-, teak-, mahogany- and other big trees, to sections of cluster leaved Terminalia. Hunting is good from April to November in this area.
