This is the area that also mostly resembles the Okavango Delta of Botswana further southwest. From its origins in the highlands of Angola, the Kwando River flows in a southeasterly direction for nearly 1000 kilometres. It then quite enexpectantly makes a 90° turn to the northeast to follow the Gumare fault and becomes known as the Linyanti River (further east in Botswana the same river is called the Chobe River!) The annual floodwaters of the KwandoLinyanti reach the area in August and September, inundating the floodplains and flooding the relic channels. Mamili is home to Namibia’s largest concentration of buffalo herds. Predators include lion, leopard and spotted hyena, while crocodile and hippo abound in the river.
The success for viewing game differs, but the best season to view game is generally June to November. Nkasa Rupara National Park (used to be known as Mamili) is a wetland reserve. This means that because of the rains during summer (between November and April), the roads become virtually impossible to drive on.
There are various different animals that can be found here such as hippo, crocodile, elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard, hyaena, African wild dog, Roan antelope, impala, red lechwe, reedbuck, sitatunga, kudu, warthog, spotted-necked otter, rock and water monitor lizard.
Namibia has many highlights, ranging from wildlife in Etosha National Park, the third largest canyon in the world and the highest sand dunes!
