We stayed for 3 nights as a family of 4. The room was beyond expectation with two separate en-suite bedrooms and a large lounge area in between equipped with mini bar fridge, coffee machine and kettle. The room had a balcony with chairs overlooking the river. We were also impressed with the restaurant, bar and fire pit area - a... More

Namushasha's location is excellent: well placed to visit two national parks and for river trips. Under the new Gondwana management the food and attention to detail has improved. The staff is as friendly and helpful as ever.

Well done on a stunning location, well laid out rooms and super friendly staff. If anything , the food could do with a little improvement although the logistics of getting fresh food into such a remote area must be difficult.

After a long journey through the north of Namibia with a lot of camping this was one of the highlights of our trip. The reception was very friendly,helpful and informative on our arrival. The location and views from the terrace and rooms beautiful. The service and food was excellent especially taking in account the remoteness of this lodge. Highly recommendable.

The lodge is on the Kwando River in wet lands and is excellent for wildlife. The room (semi detatched cabin) contained a large double bed with mosquito net and balcony overlooking the river. We observed a hippo swimming past! The restaurant served a fixed buffet and the breakfast. The staff were very helpful. The lodge ran a sundowner river trip... More

We enjoyed the stay at Namushasha. The amenities they offer are on par with the Gondwana selection. The staff is friendly and helpful, the food was nice, the rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. Because we are Gondwana members we always choose Gondwana lodges and are never disappointed.

We stayed for one night and we're sorry we didn't stay for two! The rooms are lovely with a balcony overlooking the river. Nice linen and tea/coffee in room. The main area is comfortable with decks overlooking the river. The staff were excellent and the food was delicious.

Beautiful surroundings, food good,comfortable rooms, friendly helpful staff. Towels and toilet paper poor quality. We would have liked to see and hear more game even on the game drives and boat excursions the amount + variety of game was not what we expected.

We've been there the 2nd time and spent 4 more great days at this Location. The rooms, the service and the activities were excellent. Everybody greeted us with a smile and made it the perfect stay. Nicolene, Rector, Gracie, Frieda, (just to mention a few, of course all other employees also..) made the difference. We'll be back!
