A welcome addition to the Gondwana Collection and we enjoyed every aspect, Rooms, Food, Entertainment a must destination for keen fishermen and birders its location near Rundu, but far enough to enjoy the solitude and out in the country feeling.

We stayed at the campsite of the lodge which is really nice and recommendable. The lodge itself is beautiful and the restaurant with the deck at the river a nice place to chill. And the sunset from the deck is one of the nicest we have seen in Africa.

We visited Hakusembe after a tour of the Caprivi and Victoria Falls. Hakusembe was the perfect place to rest and recharge after all our driving. My boys loved fishing for Tiger fish and we hope to visit again next year!

We started our honeymoon here. Bungalow overlooking the river. Room was very clean and nicely made-up. Aircon was a welcome treat. Staff were friendly and the food was delectable! We did a fishing trip on one of the boats. I will definitely recommend the lodge to anyone!

Beautiful accommodation in separate very large bungalows; very private and quiet. The restaurant was very good and the cruise on the river at sunset was beautiful. We were surprised to find the Easter bunny have arrived on our doorstep on Easter Sunday.. How thoughtful of the staff and was indicative of the service we received during our stay. It is... More

The establishment has been nicely upgraded with wonderful facilities. A special mention of the hosts Edison and Yvonne, their personalities and attention to detail make a huge difference right from arrival time.

wonderful welcome, beautiful chalet, the sort of hospitality that delivers a tray of morning coffee to your door. All this with the gentle activities of all that use the river to observe and delight. We were fortunate to stay on our trip to Caprivi and again on the return

I thought I was in paradise. That's now in a royal paradise where I was queen. The staff was friendly and helpful and the magical coffee that appears in front of your cabin in the morning sold me for a lifetime.
