Ndhovu Safari Lodge
Ndhovu Safari Lodge is a peaceful riverine retreat situated on the western banks of the Okavango River, overlooking the well-known Caprivi Game Park (Bwabwata National Park).
In true safari tradition, Ndhovu Safari Lodge offers luxury tented accommodation, each tent being fully equipped with its own en-suite bathroom facilities. For the adventurous type, we offer a Rivertent on the water. Here you can feel real close to crocodiles as well as the hippos. On its own small deck, you can either relax in the sun or try catching the famous tigerfish. In addition, we offer an exclusive camping area.
The charming thatched lapa overlooks the banks of the river, where elephants and hippo sometimes congregate, providing residents outstanding game and bird-viewing opportunities whilst enjoying sundowners at the bar and delicious three course meals.
Facilities offered at the lodge includes sundowner cruises, fishing excursions, village tours and game drives whilst the birdlife in the area will satisfy the most ardent bird-watcher - over 400 different species have been recorded in the surroundings.
Experience nature at its best on an all-inclusive 2 or 3 day boat safari on the houseboat ”Hippo” (sleeps 4 persons) up the Okavango river to the Popa Falls with daily excursions to the Bwabwata game park.

Mahango Game Drive
Daily guided game drives to the surrounding game parks

Buffalo Game Drive
Game drives to the Caprivi national park (Bwabwata national park) will take 5-6 hours. This is probably the most popular way to see big herds of buffalo and elephants in their natural habitat. Typically this tour starts early in the morning just after breakfast.
