BWABWATA NATIONAL PARK

Wildlife area in Caprivi strip

BWABWATA NATIONAL PARK

Bwabwata is a recently established park merging the former Caprivi Game Park and Mahango Game Reserve. The 6,100-square-kilometre Bwabwata National Park incorporates the West Caprivi Triangle around Kongola, the Mahango Game Reserve, Popa Falls and the Buffalo Core Area.

The park aims to rehabilitate wildlife populations that were lost to poachers, therefore community game guards and resource monitors are employed as part of a long-term strategy aimed at conservation as well as job creation for local Caprivian people. It is because of places like Bwabwata that there has been a steady increase in the numbers of Namibian wildlife, including several rare species.

Best time to visit Bwabwata National Park

Best time to spot lots of animals is from June till October. October is very hot but probably the best month. Because it’s dry, animals tend to hang around the water holes. The bush is also less thick, which makes it easier to find them. During the wet summer months (November-April), water can be found everywhere and the bush is a lot denser, which makes it more difficult to find animals.
