Mudumu  - Wild and romantic game park in Namibia

The Park has an abundance of wildlife, but due to its remoteness and tropical climate it is rarely visited by tourists. Additionally the park is situated in acute malaria area thus the use of a prophylaxis is advisable when visiting. To get to the Park visitors have to travel along the Trans-Caprivi-Highway to Kongola and from there drive to the south.

The southern part of the Park has a lot of water. Here elephants, zebras, antelopes, buffalos and Hippos and crocodiles can be seen as well as more than 400 different species of birds.
