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

Such a beautiful place to relax. Staff was very friendly and the boot cruise stunning. Everybody of our group enjoyed it a lot. Rooms clean and nicely decorated. Restaurant wasn't finished yet, but we had a great dinner under the tent.

We had just spent 5 nights camping when we arrived at Hakusembe River Lodge so it was going to be hard for it to disappoint. But having said that, it was really lovely. The room was large, with white linen and lots of swathes of white curtains. The bed was massive and had a mosquito net around it to draw... More

On arrival we had to be taken to the lodge by boat due to the heavy rains that flooded access to the lodge. Our group of 12 were met by a wonderful crew who had some cold beers for us to sup on after a long day travelling! The rooms were brand new, wonderfully appointed and decorated. The best shower...
