Lianshulu Bush Lodge
Zambezi Region - Namibia
Lianshulu Bush Lodge is set on the banks of the River Kwando in a 800ha private concession inside Mudumu National Park.

Mudumu National Park enjoys a scenic riverine environment with thick concentrations of mopane forest throughout. You can drive through this forest and over floodplains in search of wildlife, stopping at the many vantage points along the way to view mammals. Many photographic opportunities will present themselves when the animals stop by the river to drink. Several animals in the park have been fitted with global positioning collars so their movements can be tracked by rangers. Information is gathered from these devices and with it a better understanding of animal behaviour which works perfectly with the ability to protect and conserve the parks wildlife.
