"Really enjoyable 3 night stay."
Definately the best guide in Alphieus (/) of the whole trip and as with all of the guides absolutely brilliant eyesight, not only in front of them but at the sides as well.
I suspect that if an animal crept up from behind they would see that too." See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia
"Amazing treetop location."
Lots of animals near the lodge and in the reserve itself. Highly recommended - would definitely return to Nambwa." See all these reviews: 21n in Namibia; 2n in Zimbabwe

"Superb location,camp & staff"
The lodge is superb with spacious & very well equipped & supplied tents. the guiding was excellent & we had one of the best boat trips ever, seeing a host of birds & river life at close quarters. The lodge & tents are raised high off the ground, which is just as well as the site is on an elephant path.
It is quite exiting to see 20-30 elephants approaching the camp knowing that they an traverse the sit by passing under most of it. Even more exiting for the campers at ground level! we can thoroughly recommend Nambwa.
We had hoped to do some guided walking on this visit but it unfortunately was not a possible option." See all these reviews: 15n in Namibia; 5n in Botswana
Having crossed the border (without difficulty) into Namibia's Caprivi Strip from Botswana at Mehombo, it was an easy drive along a good road to the entrance of the Bwabwata National Park. Our guide was waiting and having left our car securely, we were taken via a game drive to Nambwa.
It is true that game density is not as high as some other national parks but we did see two of the antelope on our wish list - the Lechwe and Tsessebe - plus one drive when we came across elephant as far as the eye could see. There are also water safaris which are enjoyable. Birding was good." See all these reviews: 8n in Botswana; 8n in Zimbabwe; 2n in Namibia
"Nambwa Tented Lodge review"
Unfortunately, the service did not live up to this high standard. The staff were disorganised, other than Linda, who seemed to have to involve herself in everything to make things work. Nothing seemed to happen without asking twice, from ordering hot water for coffee in the room, getting a drink or lunch at the time requested."
