Formerly the Caprivi Game Park, the 570,000-hectare Bwabwata National Park is home to both wildlife and people and aims to support both in a sustainable manner. Local Caprivians have been employed in various aspects of conservation and ecotourism and the park provides sanctuary to a wide variety of free-roaming wildlife. The Bwabwata National Park extends from the Kavango River in the west to the Kwando River in the east. Birders will particularly enjoy the west of the park, while a key viewing area for animals such as elephant, hippo, buffalo, lion and leopard as well as general game is the ‘Horse Shoe’ to the east of the park – an oxbow lake which attracts many species.
