Nestled under Jackalberry and Mopane tree canopies, Nambwa campsite, laid out beautifully on the banks of the Kwando River, offers you the tranquility of nature’s bounty.
The splendour of Nambwa and the iconic environment it is located in, stimulate the senses and offer adventurous “wild camping” since its official opening in 2004. It was an initiative run by the local communities within the Bwabwata National Park and operated by the Mayuni Conservancy. The management and marketing of this truly unique location was handed over to African Monarch Lodges to enhance the ever evolving experience of camping, yet, keep to the roots of this truly unspoilt and rustic hideaway that has earned Nambwa its reputation.
“If you’re nervous about hippos and elephants coming through the camp, you might want to sleep in a roof tent on your vehicle”
The location of Nambwa within the pristine and untouched Kwando Core area, has the local and migrant animal species wandering through the campsites. Elephants, hippos, hyena, and our very own resident leopard are common visitors to this idyllic woodland island. With spacious campsites right on the river banks and shaded by age-old trees, your vistas will leave you yearning for more. Nambwa is a gateway to the rest of the Bwabwata National park from where you can explore the winding dirt roads at your own leisure.
