This lodge is not situated in a game packed park, it is situated on the banks of the majestic Okavango. The camping area is outstanding and so are the chalets. Best is the new restaurant of stilts above the river. No, really the best is the staff and the visible pride they have in their work in bar, cooking, river... More

The staff needs some training. Especially the bar staff. We also struggled to get towels for the pool. The service during our stay was terrible. The accommodation was nice. The guide on the river cruise was good but they gave us one plate of snacks for 14 people.

So relaxing ,sitting in front of our bungalow, with a cup of coffee ( brought to the bench in front of your room every morning around 6), looking over the river! Well worth to go, could have spent some more days with this friendly and well trained... More

Well appointed chalets, bottled water in room as river water not potable. Air con works well, lovely heavy wood furniture. Buffet dinner and breakfast good,lovely terrace to sit and watch river go...

The staff were friendly & helpful. The rooms & facilities were excellent and a lovely location, we travelled by road with a saloon car and had no problem on the unmade road. The boat trip was very relaxing.

We were planning on staying at a different lodge but ended up at Hakusembe because of a mistake. The best mistake ever! Hakusembe was a very pleasant surprise. Fantastic room in African style. Big and comfortable beds and separate WC and shower. The location is very good right on the Okavango river. Good food and very friendly and service-minded staff.... More

We recently camped at Hakusembe Rive Lodge and felt like we were in paradise. The staff were wonderful, the facilities excellent and the location amazing. We arrived to a warm welcome by the staff and could not have asked for better accommodation.

It has been my second time at Hakusembe. The Staff is extremely friendly. The new rooms are very large with lovely decoration and good quality bedding. The new dining room with the deck overviewing the Kavango River turned out really great. For breakfast the staff immediately layed the table outside. The bar has an excellent variety, the cruise was very... More
