Mamili National Park is situated in the south-western corner of Eastern Caprivi, and the largest wetland conservation area in Namibia. The name was derived from the seven chiefs in the area, another name it has which is not official on the National parks database is the Nkasa Rupara National Park named after the two islands in the area. It is characterised by large water channels, reed island and beautiful wetlands, with the focal point the two islands of Nkasa and Lupala on the Kwando and Linyanti river, on which Mamili is centred. Rain falls during the hot months of November to March, and although the islands are easily reached by road during dry season, after rains 80% of the area becomes flooded, cutting them off from the mainland. Mamili is home to elephants, lion, buffalo, giraffe, hippo and a birds paradise with over 430 bird species spotted.
