Description [ correction ]

Livingstone's Camp previously known as the Nsheshe Rest camp, located in the Caprivi Region.

Mamili (Nkasa Lupala)National Park beautifully mirrors Botswana's Okavango style wetland wilderness with an edge that is uniquely Namibia. In a vast arid country, Mamili holds the distinction of being the largest wetland with conservation status in Namibia.

The newly built Livingstone's Camp borders the national park and features 5 exclusive campsites providing visitors with their own private bathrooms, hot showers and unrivalled camping facilities, such as kitchen and verandah. Shelters help when there are heavy rainstorms.

Views over the swamp are lovely.

Solar for lights and gas for hot water.

The campsites all have incredible views of the Linyanti wetland with abundant birdlife and wildlife. Guests have a range of activities to experience, including Mokoro safaris through the pristine waterways, as well as guided walking and game drive safaris.

Anyone with passionate enthusiasm for the wildlife of Africa and is equipped with a self-contained 4X4 vehicle will consider camping at Livingstone's Camp, the ultimate escape.

Reservations are advised.

Comments [ leave a comment ]

“We camped here in January 2022, and the experience was very good. The shelters helped against the heavy rain storms, and the views over the swamp very good. Birding also excellent. (Mamile) has no more camping, and this is the best spring board to do day trips to this beautiful part of Africa.” - Johan Malherbe, 2022/01/27

“This is a beautiful, well managed camp with excellent facilities and activities. Highly recommended. Pre-booking recommended.” - Mietsie Visser, 2016/05/18
