Tiger Fishing Season is in full swing and Zambezi Mubala Camp & Lodge want to join in on the fun! Now we know that the rod is man’s best friend, but more than just the fisherman’s paradise we would like to cater for the fisherman’s wife as well – by offering the best possible getaway while hubby is on the water. Of course, we do believe that the rod could be woman’s best friend too!

We are happy to announce that the construction of Etosha King Nehale on the Andoni plains just one kilometre from Etosha’s northern-most King Nehale gate is on track.

Due to the current drought, the water level of the Chobe River is considerably lower than last year. With sandbanks emerging daily activities at Chobe River Camp have to be adjusted accordingly as the safety of guests enjoys highest priority. Until further notice, this Gondwana lodge unfortunately cannot offer boat cruises anymore but would like to invite their guests to join a half-day game drive.

A rhino rubs itself against brand new Namibia2Go cars

27. June 2019, inke - Gondwana Collection

They were spanking new and had just set off on their first trip through Namibia: the Toyota Fortuner siblings with the number plates N 209776 W and N 209775 W. By chance, the two Namibia2Go rental cars were parked next to each other at a lodge in the Waterberg area - and the respective car renters got the shock of their lives. A grazing white rhino chose “to cuddle” with their rental cars and damaged the bodywork in the process.

Carmine Bee-eaters

Namibia’s Zambezi Region is renowned for its lush vegetation, wildlife, amazing bird species and water abundance due to the mighty Zambezi River, the Kwando and the meandering water channels of the Chobe River. But a very special occurrence tops all of that each year when thousands of feathered migrants turn the skies red to descend on a specific area from August to December to breed.
