Mahango National Park
The Mahango National Park was founded in 1986 and with its 250 km² it is the smallest of Namibia’s many national parks. It is located in the eastern part of the Caprivi Strip, along the C48 close to the Popa Falls at the Okavango River and is bordering Botswana.
Apart from its small size nearly all species of game can be viewed here. More than 300 bird species are found in the park.
Only 4x4 vehicles are allowed in the park and at least two vehicles should travel together. The park has no accommodation facilities, fuel stations of shopping opportunities.
Remarkable are the numerous, very large Baobab Trees in the park.
Together with the Caprivi National Park the Mahango National Park was declared Bwabwata National Park in 2007.
