The Namibian Experience:Soulful

04.09.2017 / NKASA LUPALA LODGE - Birgit, November 2016

·What we loved – The simple dinner was excellent and wholesome. I enjoyed my sundowner in the Nkasa Rupara National Park, overlooking a pool with very comfortable hippo checking us out. Again, popcorn for sundowners seems to be a favorite in the Zambezi. We saw hippos, buffalo, elephant, and lots of Impala and Kudu. The camp is sincerely concerned about sustainability and its real environmental footprint. Power is switched off after dinner and you enjoy the most magnificent night skies.

·Keep in mind – You embark on game drives into the Nkasa Rupara National Park, which means these are subject to park rules and you have to exit by sunset, so when we finally spotted the elephant herd, there was no time to linger.

·Mmmmh – Lunch of toasted sandwiches may have been a limited lunch option, even if tasty and adequate. Couldn’t find the 2x4 parking spot and ended up a short distance on the 4x4 trail following lodge signs, so need better instructions where you park your car, but they have since then created the necessary signage.

·Insider tips – TheNkasa Rupara National Park is beautiful. Stunning sunsets and scenery, birding is diverse and excellent, got a few rarities checked off. (the Marabou Stork and Egrets especially were exciting and we spotted lots of Fish Eagles)
