Had a great time, the lodge was great in all respects. Will be even better when the deck refurbishment is complete and the builders vacate the premises. Super setting and ideally situated to visit near by parks

We really enjoyed our two days at Namushasha. Our room was not only beautiful, comfortable and clean - it also literally hung right over the river bank where we could hear all sorts of birds, as well as hippos. The food was very good and the staff friendly and helpful as well as knowledgeable. I hope to visit there again... More

Nice stay at Namushasha, would have liked to have an aircon or fan in the room, but I understood that upgrading is in the process and will soon have this luxury in the rooms. Friendly staff, especially Friedah, made my stay very pleasant... Beautiful view from my room over the river.

Was always a good place to stay but with the upgrades it will become a premium resort. Tranquil surrounds the Kwando river just relaxing and let the body rest if you wish. Otherwise you go on a fishing trip or game drive.

Where ever we travel we always opt for Gondwana Lodges - the staff are very well trained and are friendly even under pressure. The Security guys that help with the baggage, goodness they just pop up and are always happy to assist with no matter how heavy the baggage! Our experience at Namushasha Lodge was once again exceptional - the... More

Travel to Namusahsha was an experiment in rain season - but we managed to swim over the road, even in our small car. Felt very welcome by all staff members , view over the river from our balcony, great food! Thank you Brigitte & Staff

This Gondwana lodge is in a beautiful location, with bungalow rooms overlooking the river below. The rooms are spacious and clean, although lack air-conditioning or a fan (and the generator goes off between 11pm and 5am so it can get pretty warm). As with all Gondwana accommodation, the staff are lovely and the customer service is great. They were very... More

We recently spent 2 nights at Namushasha River Lodge. We originally booked a camp site, on arrival we were informed that a camp site was not available and were given a beautiful river front chalet for the same price! We were also given a free dinner, the manager went above and beyond all expectations. The facilities and location were lovely... More

This is the sixth Gondwana lodge that we visited, and it did not disappoint at all. The staff is well trained and friendly. We especially loved the sundeck, and boat cruise. The rooms are lovely, but we would have appreciated a ceiling fan during the hot November nights. The buffet dinners were very tasty. The lodge is situated near 3... More
