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.

It always was a great setting next to the Okavango, now made even better by the additions of new rooms and a stunning dining area. Friendly staff put the cherry on top of your stay. For fishing also a great address

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.
