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.

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.
