The staff members are helpful and friendly. We felt at home. The boat cruise was super. food was also delicious. I would recommend that a variety of ciders are available at the bar, there was only savanah available. Reception officers are trully amazing..... Thanks Hakuzembe!

Overall a great experience. Very clean and very well thought out with many of the chalets overlooking the river. Peacefull and quiet. I would definitely return.The service at the restaurant needs some improvement. Staff not enough and a bit slow. The food is good but need to be on the lookout to help clients with allergy issues. Not all can... More

The chalet was lovely, nice river view and although no tea/coffee facilities, they brought us some in the morning, an unexpected and nice touch.

Really good night here. Food was superb, setting great. High flood waters meant being taken to the lodge by boat, different, but fun and unusual. Ideal stop over for those going from Windhoek to Katima

The setting is very beautiful. Everyone at the lodge is just wonderful. .... and the food, delicious!!! I enjoyed the morning and afternoon trips on the boat. It was refreshing and an adventure at the same time.

Finding the place has been delirious and hilarious, as we kept missing the right turn that was simply on our ... right but it appeared to be the wrong turn. Anyway we got there, in time for the afternoon river excursion/sunset and iit's well worth it. You are taken on the river boat left and right to watch for birds,... More

Very tranquil, natural setting. Great view on the Kavango river. Very good food. Lovely rooms. Manager went to a lot of trouble to organise excursions to the nearby cultural village. Sunset cruise was excellent.

Nice lodge on the river Okovango, unfortunately no wildlife. River boat drive was nice, beautiful sunset. Pool area and accomodation clean. Room with Airconditioning, brand new build. Staff maybe new and not yet working as a Team. All in all good.

I had an awesome stay at Hakusembe, the staff was friendly, professional and helpful. I felt very welcome. The Lodge is beautifully situated and the view from the deck spectacular. Will go back the first chance I get.
