Mudumu is primarily a self-drive destination. A reliable 4x4 is needed. Most of the country, including the Zambezi Region, is thinly populated and there are long distances between settlements. It is very important that you refuel your vehicle at every available opportunity and make sure to take plenty of water. Road conditions in the park vary from bad to terrible during the Wet season (November to April).
Malaria & Vaccinations
Anti-malarials are recommended when visiting Mudumu NP. Additional precautions are necessary as well, such as keeping your skin covered in the evening, and applying mosquito repellent (those containing DEET are most effective). Also important is a visit to your travel clinic before your trip. You will need various vaccinations before you depart.
Certain risks are involved when viewing wild animals. However, following the rules of the park and remaining inside your vehicle will keep you safe. If you are on an organized tour, your guide will have the best information for you to keep safe. Additional information can be found below, in our ‘Wildlife Viewing Safety Precautions’.
