Might have just been a bad time of year (July) but we drove around for hours with very few game sightings. Mahango proved to be a better option

When we visited, we did not encounter another human being - only wildlife which was plentiful tho' without our guide, we would probably have missed quite a bit. If self driving, use GPS.

Namibia collects all the possible landscaper you can imagine: see, dunes, mountains, deserts, salted pans, bushlands and Mamili is the wetland. Not so famous as Botswana's Okavango delta, less touristic, but really beautiful!

Mamili National Park - one of the quietest parks in Caprivi. Maybe it was just the timing. The tracks as detailed out by T4A Maosare very inaccurate. People got lost whilst we were there and this did not bode well. Had to do some river...More
