Here in the lush Namushasha River Campsite, you can set up camp on the grassy bank under old grandfather trees and breathe in the spirit of the river. After a guided journey into Bwabwata National Park, gather your bundle of firewood and return to your campsite home. Raise your glass with friends around the warmth of the flames next to the reed-lined river. Here the bulrushes that locals and elephants eat grow and the day and night water lilies float. Campers are more than welcome to enjoy the swimming pool then dine at the Namushasha River Lodge Restaurant as close as the hop of the river bird.
