Spread across 100,000 ha, Mudumu id hugged to the west by the kwando River, which is alive with crocodile, hippo and numerous water loving buck such as sitatunga, red lechwe and reedbuck.
Covered in mopane woodlands, the reserve is well populated with elephant, giraffe and zebra, in addition to impala, kudu and somewhat uncommon roanantelope species. These animals enjoy the shelter and foliage offered by the abundant mopane.
Bird watchers will fall in love with Mudumu, especially if they get to spot the African Fish Eagle, the Narina trogen, Pel's fishing owl, or any of the many species found nowhere else in Namibia.It's best to explore Mudumu by 4x4, but Lianshulu lodge offer guided walks.
For a cultural diversion, visit the Lizuali Traditional village just outside Mudumu to learn about traditional Caprivi lifetyles. Lizuali is one of the many local upliftment programmes and is worth supporting if you are environmentally or culturally sensative.
