An easy drive through a reserve wedged between Angola and Botswana
Overall rating

With an identical habitat of floodplains and riverine woodlands to the other Caprivi parks, the difference of Bwabwata is that it straddles the Caprivi Highway (B8), which runs through the entire length of the park. I’ve never seen much game, but the park is part of the Zambezi Region ‘drive’ and it makes the dead straight road a little more interesting knowing that there may be animals within a few metres of the tar. Roan antelope and buffalo are not uncommon and in the dry season fairly large herds of elephant have been known to use the uncluttered highway as a route to the permanent water source of the Kwando River. Like the rest of the Caprivi region, it’s good for bird-watching. It’s also possible to deviate off the B8 at the eastern end of the park where there are a few four-wheel-drive tracks and some riverside lodges and campsites.
