Nambwa tented lodge

The Lodge offers ten luxurious tents nestled high in the majestic Jackalberry, Sausage and Knobthorn trees. Respecting the elephants’ right of way, the lodge is built in exquisite comfort above the African Wildlife. As night falls experience the drama and spectacle as it unfolds beneath you. Our unquenchable desire to create the most authentic African experience takes you drifting down the unspoilt Kwando River. Explore the fauna and flora up close and personal on a bush walk or a game drive with our experienced guides or paddle through the safe backwaters of the Kwando River in a traditional hand crafted mokoro.

A visit to a traditional village allows you the opportunity to understand the local life and culture of our people. The infamous Horseshoe Lagoon is the ideal spot for a sundowner after a riveting game drive. Soak up the breathtaking sunsets together with hippos and large herds of elephants silhouetted in purple hues over the water. An exclusive night drive to view the nocturnal wildlife takes you back home where a bubble bath awaits

Directions

The entrance to Nambwa lodge is to the south of the B8 highway a 6.5km west of Kongola. Driving west from Kongola along the B8 you will enter the Bwabwata park through a gate and the turnoff to the lodge is around 300 meters past this gate - the turnoff is well marked. If driving from Rundu to Kongola the turn off is just before you exit the park. The last 13.6km is through very soft sand so you need a 4×4: it is not passable with a two-wheel drive vehicle. This last stretch of road can take up to 45 minutes.
