New name is Nkasa Rupara National Park. New concrete bridge to enter from Sangwali. Camping no longer allowed on Lupala Island. Nice tented lodge called Nkasa Lupala Tented Lodge. Nice: Boat trips on the Linyanti river.

Mamili is the old name for this Namibian National Park; named after an old Wupara Tribal Chief who fell into disfavour with the community. Now named Nkasa Rupara it is a relatively "undeveloped" and modest sized park off the beaten track. Although wildlife is not as numerous as the likes of Chobe, the low cost of entry and isolation from... More

Mamili or Nkasa Lupala National Park is the best wilderness area in Namibia. Although the quantity of wildlife sightings are not the same as the other Caprivi/Zambezi parks and a long way off what you find in Chobe, it offers true nature enthusiasts a part of real Africa without other vehicles and people around. And it is one of the... More

What is not to like when you see such beautiful creatures in their own environment. God's creation at its best!

Very remote and wild area. Roads are barely passable and use of a 4x4 mandatory. Great game and bird life. One of the better game parks in Namibia.

the park is really "wild". this was also one of the issues. we were told that it is really stunning with lots of game. we saw very little, except some hippos. the main reason being that the water level was really low. i am glad that i looked at it, but it is definately not the best park in the...

In this place I feel like in real Africa. Park is famous for elephants and in rainy season for birds. You can expect lions, buffoloes and antilopes. In this park, as only one, I saw mambas and other snakes and lizards.

Mimili National Park is remote and untouched. Very few other tourists mean that the wildlife is not accustomed to people. While they then take a little more effort to find, the experience is incredible and being able to observe them this way unique.
