Welcome to Nambwa Island in the paradise of KAZA. Nambwa Lagoon Camp is one of only two lodges inside the Bwabwata National Park, so it is guaranteed to be something special and secluded. There's not much else out here, but you and nature. Maybe the elephants will come and say hi.
Stay in one of five Meru style tents along the Kwando River. These are not the kind of tents where you have to duck your head and sleep on the floor, rather walk into your tent on a wooden platform with your own lookout deck. Each tent comes with a modern en-suite bathroom (that doesn’t even look like it is part of a tent) and a double bed with draped mosquito nets and there's electricity. For a tent, it's pretty spacious.
Wake up to the morning sunrise as you look out onto the river from your bed. Watch as the light crawls in, admire the hippos and elephants wading in the water. Time for coffee. This is the kind of glamping we like, right? Simple and easy. Your only problem is not being able to share the sunrise with the rest of the world, because the WiFi is only in the main area of the lodge. Bummer, but social media can wait.
While you are opting for a more 'outdoorsy' experience at Nambwa Lagoon Camp, you still have full access to the main area at Nambwa Tented Lodge which is where you'll be dining and relaxing at the seated fire pit to watch the game life at the floodplains below.
Since the area is renowned for their large herds of elephant, you will definitely have amazing sightings all through your adventure. To be extra safe, you will be escorted back to your abode in the evenings as they are known to stop by the tents from time to time. Fear not, these gentle giants are actually just there to snack from the camel thorn trees.
A bona fide bush experience with the added luxuries of being waited on with drink in hand. Kick your feet up and keep an ear out for the grazing big boys. They're usually close by and despite their size, stealthy movers.
For adventure, hit the river for a game viewing boat cruise, go for a bush walk to explore the fauna and flora in the area or join a guided game drive.
Visit a traditional village to experience the daily life and culture of the local Mashi people.
