Nkasa Rupara National Park

Some refer to the area of Nkasa Lupala Park when describing the two dominant islands in the park.  Most of the park consists of channels of reedbeds, lagoons and termitaria islands. The Kwando River forms the western boundary and the Linyanti River the south-eastern border, but its Mamili which provides the ultimate wilderness experience.

This is the largest wetland area with conservation status in Namibia and is a haven for wetland species. When the flood waters from the Kwando River are high, Mamili becomes a mini Okavango Delta. There are close to 1 000 buffalo in Mamili, the largest concentration in the country, but it is also an important corridor for elephants moving from Botswana to Angola and Zambia and considered a core breeding area for wildlife that can disperse into neighbouring conservancies.
