Romantic get away. We arrived after camping 3 days at tsodilo hills and were immediately trans fixed by the pod of hippos laying about in the waters right out front of our room. The staff was great and Cameron has the best wine cellar north of Stellenbosch South Africa. This part of the zambise strip is nice because it is... More

Cameron met us on arrival and introduced us to his excellent establishment. 5 star location. 5 star establishment. 5 star stay for 2 nights. Excellent food and surprising standard of wine list! Many options from poolside to boat trips and game drives. I'd love to go back for a week. We camped in rooftop tents. Superb ablution and showering facility.... More

Nunda lodge is beautifully located, just at the start of the panhandle of the Okavango delta and a stone throw away from the Mahangu game reserve. The lodge is very well maintained and you can see that the friendly management is on top of things. The camping sites are private and green with very nice ablution facilities. The cottages are...

We had one night at Nunda and stayed in a family chalet, which had a lovely deck and river view. The "partially outdoor" bathroom was cool and a nice touch. The service was pretty poor in my opinion. No one came to serve us drinks before dinner and I had to wait around for someone to find the bar staff.... More

The lodge is set on a beautiful and peaceful section of the Okavango. Cameron and Eugenie are wonderful hosts, and the staff are very friendly, kind, and helpful. I stayed in a tent for one night, which was clean, tidy, had adequate lighting (but not too much) and a nice, private outdoor bathroom. I loved hearing the hippos and birds... More

Since my wife works in the tourism industry, we travel around quiet a bit in southern Africa. Nunda was one of the places that really was worth a visit. The food was excellent, the rooms are very neat and tidy, and the best of all was the tour guide that took us on a boat trip, who was very knowledgeable... More

We were looking for comfortable accommodation in the Caprivi strip that would be enjoyable for someone with physical limitations. This fit the bill. The amount of wildlife that was viewable from the deck of the restaurant and the porch on the tents, overlooking the river, made this the perfect place to relax, and experience nature without going on long game...
