Nkasa Rupara National Park (formerly Mamili National Park) is 1,200km/745mi from Windhoek in the Zambezi Region. It's most often embarked upon as a self-drive safari, and visitors are advised to drive in convoy with at least two robust 4x4’s, as the park is very remote. Roads are often very bad to inaccessible during the Wet season.

Most trips (either self-drive or organized tours) begin in Windhoek by way of Hosea Kutako International Airport (WDH), located 40km/25mi to the east of the city. Some visitors elect a fly-in experience using charter flights between parks and lodges.
