What a game park

Visited: Nov 2012 Reviewed: Oct 22, 2013

Mudumu National Park is very often just ignored by travellers to the Eastern Caprivi and it is so much worth a visit.
If you do go to Mudumu your first way should be to the rangers office to pay your entrance fees. Here you receive a map of the area and the ranger will be able to tell you, depending on the time of the day where to go to be lucky.If you go to Mudumu you definitely need a 4x4 vehicle and you should be able to handle it, since the tracks are partially very, very sandy and around noon the hot sun makes them even harder to drive. Normally around noon the elephants gather at the Kwando Riverto drink. Find a spot you like, switch off your engine and be on the lookout. They do not only come from the sides you are looking at, they can just as well come from the back. We experienced a herd of altogether approximately 300 animals that stood before, next to and behind us playing and drinking. I left the park with 600 pictures since there were so many lovely things to see,like how does an elephant cross a river when he has a baby with her? The mother picks it up on her trunk going in between the legs and throws it forward. Then she walks in behind, picks the baby up again and throws it forward. This she does until she has reached an island or the other side. It was stunning.
Mudumu is one of the game parks that I would still call wild since there are no fences at all, or at least I could not see any, except for those around the rangers hut

Visitors are very likely to spot lechwe and sitatunga.

The park is excellent if one wants to discov... read more
