Mahango Game Reserve:
Enriched by the
Kavango River, this is a small reserve with an ecologically diverse combination

over 60 mammal and nearly 350 bird species. This is an excellent reserve
for elephants during the dry season. This is the only Namibian Park in which
visitors are allowed to walk unaccompanied by a guide or scout.
West Caprivi Game Park:

Cape clawless otter are abundant.
Mamili National Park:
