Mudumu National Park map

Mudumu National Park highlights

  • Great destination for elephant-lovers
  • Close to parks in northern Botswana, for combined safaris
  • Walking safaris are possible here
  • Self-drive safaris are allowed, and there are no formal entrance gates
  • Not a popular safari destination, for those looking for a more isolated-feeling safari

Located in the thin panhandle of northeastern Namibia, abutting Chobe National Park in Botswana, lies the tiny park of Mudumu. The Kwando River forms a natural border between Botswana and Namibia and it's what separates Chobe from Mudumu.

Wildlife of Mudumu National Park

Mudumu is known for its large number of elephants, which freely migration between Botswana, Namibia, Angola and Zambia, although it is also home to other large animals including lions, leopards, wildebeest, zebra, hippos, crocodiles, buffalo and giraffe. In fact, four of the big five can be spotted here, with only the rhino not present. Bird-watchers will not be disappointed in Mudumu; it is home to over 400 species of bird including the following: slaty egret, swamp boubou and the great reed warbler.

Mudumu does not have official park gates and self-drive safaris are an option here. Its proximity to Chobe and The Okavango Delta in Botswana make it a desirable destination for those wishing to see some of Namibia with limited time. It does not have many campsites or lodging options, but it is also not as visited as many of its neighboring parks, making it an ideal location for those wishing for a more isolated safari experience.

When is the best time of year to visit Mudumu National Park?

Mudumu receives the bulk of its precipitation at the start of the year. January and February are the heavy rain months and it is not unusual for the roads to become extremely muddy and difficult to navigate. Mudumu is best visited outside of the rainy season. April through September is normally very dry, with little rainfall, and temperatures hovering around the low 30sC (high 80s/low 90s F).
