We had a warm welcome and a friendly introduction. The room was luxurious and perfectly equipped with air condition and everything else needed to make it a prefect stay. The shower was a wonderful surprise with the view onto the river. We enjoyed the friendly and professional service by all staff members and will gladly recommend Namushasha Lodge to others....

Nice hotels grounds, rooms are big and clean. Rooms have a good view over river. They supply bug spray if you do need them. Bar area has a terrace to watch what happening down the river. Dinner and breakfast are buffet. Food is nothing to shout about. But if you have to leave early in the morning make sure you...

Beautiful lodge, fantastic setting. Efficient and friendly service! The River Cruise in particular was my highlight, our guide Rector was amazing and really went the extra mile to give us the best possible experience. We had the most unforgettable experience viewing the hippos- truly amazing!

Beautiful lodge. Swimming pool pleasant to use. Walk to the Heritage Centre was worth doing. Land and River Safari's had good guides full of information. Room with balcony with crocodiles swimming past and Monkey's looking in the windows each morning. Amazing bugs we learnt the hard way to keep the door closed once it was dark.

What a beautiful lodge / campsite. We camped at Namushasha and the campsites are enormous!! Each with its own ablution block!! Plenty of shade even during midday! Very friendly staff! I have only 2 minor "complaints" - the swimming pool (??) at the lodge too small! and at the campsites the fire facility for barbecue (braai area) is not ideal!...

This is one of the Gondwana Collection lodges, one of 2 crown jewels we had the pleasure of being guests. Each room is a private chalet, on the Kwando River, with ample space, its own deck and the most aromatic body wash, lotion and shampoo, provided in large pump bottles instead of the usual tiny toiletry rations. Sadly, the swimming...

I prefer more small personal lodges. The service was so so. To breakfast there were still the residuals of the Dinner-buffet . The service looked a little bit annoyed if you ask for something. The pool was green, so you could´t use it. The food was ok. We had a good boat game drive with a nice hippo group. The...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
As the evening sky turns into a red glow you sit back, high above the river, enjoying a chilled drink while listening to the deep grunt of hippos – this experience awaits you on the sundowner deck of Namushasha River Lodge on the Kwando River in eastern Caprivi. Situated 24 km south of Kongola, it is the perfect stop-over en route to the Victoria Falls. Apart from 24 rooms in chalets the lodge consists of a restaurant, a bar and a swimming pool. Watch elephant, hippo, buffalo or sable antelope on our excursions by boat or off-road vehicle, visit a traditional village in the vicinity or take time to observe the colourful birdlife (more than 400 species).A camping site for 16 tents pitched on lawn is also available at Namushasha. ... more   less
