I frequent the area since many years and the place has been lousy. Having said that, it is by far the best place in hundreds of kilometres around. So - if in Rundu: Here! Since it belongs to Gondwana the quality has massively improved. The river is just magic and in relation to that, mediocre food, undertrained staff and whatever... More

Excellent setting, very accommodating staff. Meals & service excellent. Internet availability a real bonus too I was there on a business trip so needed internet at the end of the day for reporting back on the day's activities, as well as a relaxing setting to unwind with a cold beer and great views.

The cottages are very comfortable and have a wonderful view over the Okavangon. The staff is friendly and helpful and the food was very good. When you wake up in the morning to enjoy the fantastic sunrise you´ll find a pot of hot coffee with cookies in front of your room - great!

We as a family experienced a welcome from very friendly staff, they were helpful and service swift and professional. The facilities are first class and venue perfect. Must say that the area driving towards the lodge not so clean, the town council could gear up and clean the town a bit better. The lodge are definitely recommended, rooms clean, bedding... More

Hakusembe River Lodge was a perfect place to stop over on our way to the Caprivi. The bungalows are luxurious actually and quite spacious and comfortable. Food was very good and the deck over the river is a perfect place for a cocktail and sunset viewing. I would definitely stay here again if I am traveling through Rundu.

The resort has been completely renovated so the accommodation was much better than expected. They need to update their websites. We were warmly received with iced tea and showed around the lodge. All activities and prices were explained on our arrival. There is lots to do. The chalets are beautiful, spacious and luxurious. It was a pleasure staying there.

Good signage to get you there, bumpy road - preferably use a 4X4. Very friendly reception, efficient booking. Quality chalets, with excellent facilities. Coffee delivered in flask at six am was cold when we poured it an hour later. How about coffee making facilities in the chalet? Dinner and breakfast excellent. New dining facility and viewing platform wonderful. Super staff,... More

Gondwana hospitality - those who have stayed with Gondwana Lodges would know exactly what I mean! Very, very friendly reception and wonderful staff. Edison, Yvonne and their team made our 3-day stay an exceptional experience. The fishermen in our group thoroughly enjoyed the boat trip, caught a number of Tiger Fish (catch-and-release policy supported by Gondwana), and after dinner they... More

We camped and had a lovely campsite overlooking the river with private ablutions all clean, only 4 sites would recommend. We decided to have dinner as the shops in Rundu did not have much fresh meat to offer. They have obviously done lots of new building and are building a new dining room and have completed new accommodation which looks... More
