Nambwa Tented Lodge

The Caprivi, Namibia

At a Glance

  • Immerse yourself in the magic of the Caprivi, where lions roar in the darkness and the bush buzzes all around.

  • Nestled amid the trees, watch elephants from your deck as they slowly walk to the river.

  • Spend a languid afternoon gliding down the waterways of the Caprivi on a boat cruise, perhaps with a cold drink in hand, with hippos singing in the distance and the wildlife sauntering along the water's edge.

  • Go deeper and discover the rich culture of the Caprivi as well as the various eco projects Nambwa undertakes when visiting Sijwa Island.

  • Romance is never far away on safari, sip on sparkling wine on a bush picnic while delectable morsels are freshly prepared for your tasting.

Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

Summer is the best time to visit the Caprivi Strip for bird watching, but visitors should be forewarned that the heat and humidity can be uncomfortable unless they are at least partially alleviated by rain. Winter (April to October) are the best time to travel for game viewing as it is much cooler and drier, with virtually no rain falling at this time.
