All the game reserves of northeastern Namibia offer great wildlife viewing and birding opportunities.

Two days in Mudumu NP
Overall rating

Mudumu is quite wild and has a lot of great animals that you can aproach quit near. It has only few campsites and normally you feel quite alone. The baboons are impertinent in some places and you have got to look at your things and let nothing lie around.
When we were there waterlevel was quite hight and some drives would not be possible to pass.
On the way to Mudumu we saw a lot of vultures around dead animals. Also the other birds are easy to see and even to fotograph, as there are a lot of different species especially bee-eaters, jacanas, open-billed storks, pigeons, etc.
We also saw many elephants and hippos and a few antelopes.
The rangers were quite friendly and uncomplicated.
A good park for people who want the direct touch with nature and not too much civilisation and luxury.

Wildlife is still recovering but you can see some rare species like Sable and Roan. It is largely dry and rather boring away from the river but truly vast and wild.

Fantastic Okavango-style wilderness with fewer tourists
Overall rating

I visited Mudumu NP several times between August-September in 2002 as part of a larger self-drive safari through Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe. We found Mudumu to be relatively small but with many rewards in terms of scenery, large numbers of Elephant, good viewings of small groups of other game (Kudu, Buffalo, Baboons etc) and excellent bird watching. A huge plus for our group was that there were relatively few tourists – meaning the park could be explored in a leisurely fashion. The landscape is certainly very Okavango-like with numerous small waterways and the beautiful Kwando River, as well as many vegetated anthills. At the time we visited the road network into the northern section of the park was poorly-developed. This wasn’t a major problem as most of the action was along the river. The weather was perfect for safaris in July-August. One discomfort was the presence of tsetse fly in parts of the park. Overall, a very rewarding place to visit if you are prepared to go a little off the track.

Mudumu, much like Nkasa Rupara is great for birding when accessible.

In the dry season, a great park to see a lot of elephant. Wonderful bird life on the river, and not very densely populated by game.
