Mundulea Nature Reserve
Mundulea is an intimate, eco-camp in a private nature reserve with the emphasis on nature and an immersive, inspirational walking safari experience unique to Namibia.
Its rustic kraal-like construction belies a perfectly acceptable level of comfort: your tented chalet has a solid pine bed with a comfortable mattress, pure cotton linen and an en suite (albeit open-air) bathroom with hot running water and flushing toilets.
The main living area is a communal dining area and all your meals are cooked by your guide and host, Bruno, over an open fire using home-grown ingredients. Does this sound like an authentic bush camp yet?
Bruno is slowly transforming this vast nature reserve, south of Etosha, from a one-time cattle ranch and game farm to its natural glory. Animals have been introduced over the past decade, invasive trees and shrubs are used to fire up your water heater and the land is letting out a long, gentle sigh of relief.
Walking is the obvious mode of traversing and most stays involve three or four days of daily treks from the comfort of your camp into the wilderness where everything is hallowed. From the ancient geology of the dolomite hills to the the fascinating significance of the dung beetle, Bruno will enthral you with his knowledge while nature does the rest.
Mundulea, while not a prime safari or game-viewing reserve, has its fair share of wildlife including leopard, cheetah, hyena, jackal, lnyx, serval, genet, several large antelope, a variety of smaller antelope, zebra, giraffe and, the stars of the show, seven black rhino. Birdlife in the central plateau of Namibia is excellent and varied so you will never be short of something to marvel at on your daily hikes.
Full board accommodation in four tented chalets; en suite bathrooms with fire-heated water and flushing toilets; private patio; covered sitting area and cooking fire
Walking trails of varying duration and intensity; birding; game viewing; waterhole
