There is no surface water in Bwabwata National Park and, subsequently most species of wildlife tend to gather along the Kwando and Okavango riverbanks.
The 35 game species includes elephant and buffalo, lion, African wild dog, cheetah, leopard, red lechwe, reedbuck, hippo, crocodile, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, sitatunga, Chobe bushbuck and sable and roan antelope. Over 400 bird species have been recorded in the region including wetland specials such as African skimmers and wattled cranes. Bwabwata is also the name of a village in the park and means the sound of bubbling water.
