YOUR LODGING EXPERIENCE…

Nambwa Tented Lodge is a luxury lodge situated in the heart of KAZA and the only lodge uniquely situated inside the Bwabwata National Park. It’s surrounding areas lends itself to an idyllic sanctuary for retreats, with inspirational activities, bush catering events and chefs providing meals in harmony with yoga our retreat objectives. 


The main feature, and the heart of the lodge, is the majestic viewing deck, and an al fresco dining area with a large seated fire pit area, with rewarding views of the floodplains below, are more than often the playground for large herds of elephants, buffalo and plains game that later seek refuge and security under your tented suite for the night. Often, a game drive away from the lodge becomes so unnecessary as the elephants and wildlife meander through the camp. Sundowners are then enjoyed from the safety of the decks or lengthy walkways, only meters above these animals as they traverse below you and go about their feeding.  


Explore the fauna and flora up close and personal on a bush walk or a game drive with experienced guides or paddle through the safe backwaters of the Kwando River in a traditional hand crafted mokoro. A visit to a traditional village allows you the opportunity to understand the local life and culture of our people. The infamous Horseshoe Lagoon is the ideal spot for a sunset yoga session after a riveting game drive. As night falls experience the drama and spectacle as it unfolds beneath you.   


Honouring the elephants’ right of way, a timber walkway, towering above these giants, meanders through the trees and joins the ten luxurious tented suites of exquisite comfort. Tastefully decorated with natural colors and evoking a gentle balance of serenity, the decadently spacious tented suites open completely and emanate a feeling of vastness and opulence.


As dawn breaks your morning tea or coffee will be personally delivered to your tent. From the privacy of your tree house deck, watch the sky illuminate with hues of purple and amber and re-energize for the days adventure ahead.

The elegant Safari Lounge creates a perfect fusion of energy and relaxation, which emphasises a sense of place. A library with a mixture of vintage artifacts and books, as well as small relics found on site while building the lodge on this historical military area, all encourage a touch and exploration.
