postheadericon Mamili National Park

Mamili is a Namibian National Park, which has as a center the Lupala and Nkasa islands, from the rivers known as Linyanti and Kwando. These are found in East Caprivi, in its SW area. You can reach Lupala Island by following a road there, but Nkasa can’t be reached because of flooded access routes. In order to reach the park, one has to go through the Sangwali village. In order to get into the park, visitors require 4×4 access. Travelers can use the local lodge and the community camp site if they need accommodations.

The Mamili vegetation is mostly dominated by the kind of species you see in termitaria and floodplains. The mammals which love swamps love floodplains as well, so you will find here species like the wild dog, buffalo, the red lechwe or the sitatunga. The Puka population has its last remnants in this area.

This park can only be described as wild and it’s a place that should be visited by those with an adventurous side. Tourists looking for guided tours and nice campsites should go elsewhere, since Mamili doesn’t offer any of that. If you’re looking for wild places to explore though, this National Park is a great place to go to.

Here you will find dense savannah and lush marshes, as well as high river reeds. If you love 4×4 roads, this park offers you plenty to be enthusiastic about. When the winter months arrive, elephants come in large herds on the two islands, though for the rest of the year flood water fills the park. Travelers should drive slowly when they reach deep pools, making sure the rivers are avoided, as that’s where the crocodiles wait.

This national park gives you the real African experience and anyone that wants real adventure travel should consider getting to Mamili.
