Namushasha is situated on the banks of the Kwando (or Chobe, as it is known in Botswana) river. The chalets are right in the front row, but the vistas of the river are somewhat obstructed by trees and bushes. The main road (C49) has been tarred up to Namushasha and is easy to drive. The access road is good by... More

We stayed here for one night at the end of a long day of travelling. We had one of the rooms overlooking the river at the bottom of the hill - so the view was not as good as those closer to reception. However, we could hear hippos at night and the walk was a good way to stretch our... More

This is a lovely lodge right on the river, which has boat trips and game drives available making it a "destination" in its own right. It is also well located as a stop-over point between Namibia and Botswana, Zambia or Zimbabwe. The staff were attentive and helpful. The rooms were comfortable with good wheelchair access. Overall, a great experience!

Our hosts have really tried to make our stay as pleasant as possible. We were first given a family unit which was quite a distance from the pool which our children always enjoy. When the staff saw our disappointment they immediately tried to accommodate us and gave us two adjacent, connected rooms close to the pool at no extra charge.... More

Good value lodge with excellent food and helpful staff set in a good wildlife location. Do not miss a game drive to the park opposite, including the Horshoe Lake where we saw many elephants in a great setting.
