Game Drives

We have daily game drives departing into the Mahango National Park or the Bwabwata National Park.

Most mammal species are well represented with roan, sable, kudu, impala, reedbuck, Chobe bushbuck, red lechwe, sitatunga (along the rivers), giraffe, zebra, blue wildebeest, large aggregations of elephant at certain times and buffalo. Hippo and crocodile flourish in the rivers and predators include lion, leopard, cheetah, hyaena and African wild dog.

Both rivers provide breeding habitats for wetland birds such as the endangered Wattled Crane and African Skimmer. Other species such as, African Wood

Owl, Western Banded Snake-Eagle, Narina Trogon, Grey-headed Parrot, and Red and Yellow-billed Oxpecker also occur.

A little-known aspect of Bwabwata National Park is the fascinating remains of the SADF occupation in the form of the ruins of bases in the Buffalo and Kwando Core areas and the rusty relics of tanks and blown-out vehicles lying around off the beaten tracks of the park.
