Nambwa Campsite

Inside the Bwabwata National Park, making for a great wild 4x4 camping exploration

Nambwa Campsite

We have moved our Nambwa Campsite to a new and exciting location further into the Bwabwata National Park and away from Nambwa Tented Lodge, creating a more exclusive and wilder setting. 

Nambwa Camp Site offers 4 exclusive sites nestled under either a majestic Jackleberry, Strangler Fig, Leadwood or Knobthorn tree right behind the Kwando Rivers‘ Long Lagoon. 

Each campsite has an expansive view of the vast floodplains beyond with an abundance of animals roaming these plains.  2 of the 4 campsites are more secluded and are located closer to the floodplains.  Campsite 3 and 4 would be perfect for larger families or groups traveling together.

“If you’re nervous about hippos and elephants coming through the camp, you might want to sleep in a rooftop tent on your vehicle.”

All campsites are equipped with the following:

What Our Guests Say

As Nambwa Campsite is in the heart of KAZA, the World’s Largest Wildlife Conservation Area, it is without a doubt, wild camping in its truest form, with local and migrant wildlife wandering through the campsites.

The campsites boast tasteful art mosaic pieces and chandeliers which have been skillfully crafted by the team at The Sijwa Project.  The structures have been built or enhanced using accents of recycled materials paying tribute to all that African Monarch Lodges inspires through its Sijwa Project.

Once you have passed through the park reception gate, follow the green concrete direction triangles on which you will see Nambwa Lodge stenciled. Follow the road until you reach the Nambwa Campsite sign at a fork in the road with Nambwa Tented Lodge visible at this point.  Turn right at this fork and follow this road. Do not turn off the road until you reach Long Lagoon with its hide, ahead of you. Here, turn left at the Nambwa Campsite sign and follow the road until you reach the campsite reception.

Please stop here and purchase your Park Entry Permit as you will need to show this to us on arrival at Nambwa Campsite.  You should expect your drive to take about 45 minutes from the Park Entrance Gate, and due to the thick sand you will definitely need a 4×4 vehicle to access Nambwa.
