Welcome to Mudumu National Park
Mudumu National Park has a tragic history of environmental abuse and neglect. Although it was once one of Namibia’s most stunning wildlife habitats, by the late 1980s the park had become an unofficial hunting concession gone mad. In under a decade, the wildlife was decimated by trophy hunters, which prompted the Ministry of Environment and Tourism (MET) to gazette Mudumu National Park in a last-ditch effort to rescue the area from total devastation. Of all the parks in the Caprivi region, Mudumu is the one that is taking the longest to recover, surrounded as it is by burgeoning human populations. While Mudumu’s wildlife has begun to return, it will take years of wise policy making and community awareness before the area returns to its former glory.
