We will depart after our morning boat trip for a 3,5 hour drive towards the eastern end of the Caprivi region of Namibia. Our accommodation is set on the banks of the Kwando River in Camp Kwando. From here we will be doing boat trips on the Kwando River as well as game drives in Mudumu National Park with the lodge. The Kwando River breaks up into a maze of channels as it flows towards Lynyanti. The Mundumu National Park section is characterised by a riverine forest and extensive floodplains of Papyrus swamps. East of the river the vegetation is a combination of grassland and dense stands of mixed Teak, Terminalia, Combretun, Burkea, Arcacia and Mopane. Naturally this diverse habitat is ideal for birds and the count stands at over 400 species with specials such as Wattled Crane, Slaty Egret, Swamp Boubou, Great Reed-Warbler, Greater Swamp-Warbler, Chriping and Luapula Cisticola, Hartlaub’s Babbler, Rufous-bellied Heron, Coppery-tailed and Senagal Coucal, Allen’s Gallinule and African Purple Swamphen. There are large herds of buffalo, good numbers of elephant, antelope such as the shy swamp-loving sitatunga and red lechwe, waterbuck, roan, oribi and impala. Other animals include giraffe, zebra, warthog and baboon. Both species of otter, rock and water monitor as well as the predators: lion, leopard, hyaena and African wild dog. Crocodile are fairly abundant and this part of the Caprivi is famous for its hippo population.
