Kwando Core Area - Diversified Caprivi Park

The diversified Kwando Core Area impresses with a combination of a large variety of wild animals and fascinating views onto the wetland areas, which are untypical for the Caprivi. From the hills, where the Old Fort Doppies was erected, the visitors can enjoy incredible perspectives of the flood plains, where sitatunga, reedbuck and lechwe antelopes are frequent guests. Also roan and sable antelope, waterbuck, kudu, impala, giraffe and wildebeest are common in the Kwando Game Park.

Following the river Kwando to the south, the visitor reaches Nambwa Lodge. The lodge offers a relaxing atmosphere, an up-market tented accommodation as well as a shady camping site. From the wooden decks of the lodge guests can enjoy awesome views onto the floodplains of that area.

Further down south, the popular Horse Shoe appears. This lagoon in the shape of a horse shoe attracts countless elephants which come here from midday to late afternoon to drink and bath in the water. Is is recommended to bring along enough time for driving back to the entrance gate as sometimes the area is crowded with elephants in such a way that the way back takes a little longer than expected.

Besides the mentioned herbivores the park is home to lions, leopards, cheetahs, African wild dogs and hyenas.
