BWABWATA NATIONAL PARK, located in the Zambezi and the Kavango Region of northeast Namibia, was formed in 2007 when the Mahango Game Reserve and the Caprivi Game Park were merged. The 6 274 km² park is co-managed by the Namibian Government and the local community who benefit from community-based tourism within the park. There are a combination of ‘multiple use areas’ and ‘three core conservation areas’, namely the Mahango Core Area, the Buffalo Core Area, and the Kwando Core Area, within Bwabwata National Park.

A good time to visit is October. Although it’s very hot at this time, game gathers at the remaining waterholes along the Kwando River.
