Ngepi Camp Caprivi - Namibia
Try our chill out accommodation …..
any of it!
Ngepi Camp, situated in the unspoiled upper reaches of the Okavango delta
panhandle in the western Caprivi strip, Kavango region, Namibia.
With clean Kalahari desert air, the camp is set on an island under amazing
trees with permanent river frontage and surrounded by seasonally flooded
swamps. It is a paradise of flooded plains and secret swampy backwaters,
teaming with wildlife, as we are nestled between Mahango National park,
a few km’s to the south, and Bwabwata National Park directly opposite
across the river.
Features of Ngepi Camp
Ngepi camp, your Okavango Swamp destination, built on an island
in the northern reaches of the Okavango Delta panhandle in the Caprivi
strip Namibia, offers private and overland campsites with all facilities
& stunning en suite tree-houses where you feet are ‘in’
nature—on the river. Unique ‘floating swimming’ pool
in the river, Mokoro safaris, boat cruises, fishing, bird/village walks,
game drives, bushman art trip, visits to Popa falls, lawn & shade.
The camp was started 20 years ago to entice the guests to enjoy the nature
enough to leave converted, and thereafter to constructively fight for
the environment elsewhere.
We have a strong environmental policy in which we encourage our guests
to become involved, as we act as facilitators to help guests interface
with the local San Bushmen and Hambukushu tribes, (read Dear Mr. Westerner)
and so get an understanding of their symbiosis with the environment, hopefully
stimulating a life long commitment to protecting the dynamics of the area,
as well as constructively supporting a workable future. 95% of our staff
are local people, and we work within their traditional social structures
& value system.
Some ideas of what to do at Ngepi Camp
Okavango Delta in Namibia
Our Namibian Okavango Delta Swamp ‘Mokoro/Watu’ canoe safari
is unbeatable value, taking you from Popa Falls via a San Bushman or Mbukushu
settlement, gliding past islands and swamps, while seeing crocs, hippos
and otters in the river, followed by a game drive in the park, home to
a myriad of plains game as well as elephant, lion, Wild dog and buffalo.
Game & Birds
There is exceptional game viewing in the Mahango National Park next door
(see the world’s largest herds of the rare sable and roan antelope).
Bird watching is excellent, with over 500 species, there are guided walking,
mokoro and canoe safaris, as well as cultural village experiences, sunset
cruises or a day trip to see Bushman art at Tsodillo Hills.
