The Namibian Experience:Soulful
back to top


04.09.2017 / NAMBWA ISLAND LODGE - Birgit November 2016

·What we loved: Gorgeous rooms, which take the classic tented camp style to a luxurious design with tweaks such as curtains, private spacious deck, indulgent bath. I had an aromatic, hot bath awaiting me at bedtime each night. Food was excellent. Freshly made popcorn at the spot for sundowners added a quirky touch to the usual sundowners snacks. The soup at sundowner at Horseshoe Bend was soul-nourishing. The unbelievable colourful sunsets at Horseshoe bend. I loved the overall chilled athmosphere and the calls of the Fish Eagle.

·Keep in mind: Horseshoe Bend inside the Bwabwata National Park is not exclusive to Nambwa and access is possible for campers, self-drivers and Namushasha guests, though we rarely, if ever, encountered them. Game viewing is as anywhere on safari, never guaranteed. This is an elephant haven, but I didn’t see a single one during my entire three days there; the only evidence of large herds residing here was liberally scattered dung, and many industrious dung beetles.

·Mmmmh: Power is switched off each night after the last guest retired to bed, but back up lights/torches in the room were at the time not available.

·Insider tips: Do insist on a guided walk, it’s well worth it. You will always have your share of game drives on your Namibian safari, but being able to traverse the flat landscape by foot is always fascinating. Ask to walk to the hide and spend some time birdwatching over the little lagoon. It is subject to availability of armed guide.
