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 unbearable 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.

Located on the banks of the Kwando-Linyanti River system in north east Namibia, Nkasa Lupala Tented Lodge is a small intimate lodge accommodating 22 guests in just 10 tents. Scenery is lush and green, reminiscent of Botswana's famous Okavango Delta.
Far removed from Namibia's traditional desert landscapes in the south of the country, Nkasa Lupula Tented Camp is situated in a pristine wilderness location surrounded by wetlands and lush scenery within the Nkasa Lupala National Park. This area is rich in wildlife with large herds of elephant and buffalo as well as good predator numbers. The wildlife does vary from season to season and is largely dependent upon the water levels in the area. Guests can explore the area by boat, on game drives or for those more adventurous guided walks can be arranged.
All 10 tents are ensuite and raised on wooden platforms affording views across the open plains and waterways. There is one family unit which comprises one large bedroom with a double and two single beds. Each tent has a large open deck ideal for relaxing in between activities. With over 430 different bird species, a few nights at Nkasa is well recommended for any avid bird watcher or those simply looking to get off the beaten track and discover a true hidden gem.
