Visit the Sioma Ngwezi National Park
Within an hours drive of Kabula Lodge, lies the Sioma Ngwezi National Park, the third largest reserve in Zambia.
This 5000 sq km park, with few roads, no permanent facilities and no fences, provides the serious outdoor and 4x4 enthusiasts with a piece of un-spoilt and totally undeveloped Africa and the presence of growing numbers of game give visible evidence of its massive potential following the incorporation of the park within the Kavango-Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area.
According to wildlife scouts from the Zambian Wildlife Authority (ZAWA) the Park holds a huge variety of game species such as elephant, lion, leopard, hyena, cheetah, wild dog, giraffe, eland, sable, roan, tsessebe, zebra, impala, kudu, duiker, buffalo, hippo, crocodile and sitatunga as well as a great number of birds.
It is also exciting to note that in a recent surveillance flight undertaken by the Department of National Parks and Wildlife and WWF Zambia, they noted a significant increase in the wildlife populations of the park. Please see the notice issued by the WWF Zambia.
For the ardent bush lover this pristine wilderness is an experience of a lifetime.
We wish to strongly emphasise that:
- Except for totally un-serviced campsites there are no facilities within this remote wilderness area.
- There are no roads in the park, only tracks requiring four-wheel drive vehicles even in the dry season, when vehicles can become bogged in sand.
- Travelling alone is most certainly not recommended.
- Travelling with hi-tech position finding GPS equipment is essential.
- You venture into this area entirely at your own risk.
