The lodge has 10 luxury tents constructed on raised platforms, with en-suite bathroom facilities and a nice wooden deck to sit outside and relax. A central main area with bar, dining room, lounge facility, kitchen, storage, office and view point is linked to the rooms through a network of pathways.
The lodge is totally energy self-sufficient for electricity and water heating by using solar panels.
Nkasa Lupala tented lodge is situated on the Lupala island less than 300m from the Nkasa Lupala NP (Mamili NP) border and the fact that there is no fence will allow large mammals and other animals to roam freely in the vicinity of the lodge.

From Sangwali take the road to the Mamili NP. (4x4 is advised or call the lodge for pick-up, there is a safe parking for normal vehicles in Sangwali). Once arrived to the Shisintze ranger station on the road that is the park boundary cutline, drive east for 1km and you are arrived to the lodge.
Spectacular herds of elephant, buffalo, red lechwe and reedbuck are among the highlights of any game-viewing experience. Crocodiles grow quite big and the numbers of hippos in the area is quite impressive. Lion, Leopard, Impala, Kudu, Zebra, Wildebeest, Roan and Sable are all present.
During the rainy season, areas of the park can become flooded and inaccessible, and yet it remains a sanctuary for birds. With more species of birds recorded here than anywhere else in Namibia, the Park is a bird-watcher’s paradise.
