4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I loved this Lodge! My room was magnificent, with three beds to choose from, and two washbasins. Sadly, neither washbasin had a plug, which made washing a bit difficult! This camp seems to be first world oasis, surrounded by third world poverty, and across the river is Angola. The food is OK, but little choice for vegetarians.

What a great place to stay, cabins right on the river. A very peaceful place with a great staff. I wanted to go fishing for Tigerfish even though it wasn't the best season. The staff set me up with the tackle, boat and a guide at the last minute. I had a great time, actually caught a couple Tigerfish and... More

Our family of five stayed at Hakusembe for only one night at the start of a trip through the Caprivi and into Botswana. Everything was perfect. The bungalows are beautifully decorated and even the ones that are not on the river's edge have lovely views of the mighty Kavango. The buffet dinner was a delight after a long drive from... More

So sorry it was just for one night, as we were just passing through. A beautiful setting along the river. Comfortable chalet with mosquito nets that actually worked! A wonderful welcome from Eddie, iced tea perfect after a dusty trip! Virginia, our waitress, attentive and helpful. Also a delicious buffet with Frieda in charge n the kitchen.

The lodge is located right on the Okavango across from Angola. Visit the nearby Living Museum in the morning and book a Champaign Cruise in the afternoon and you have a perfect overview of the nature and cultural traditions of the region. For lunch and in the evening there is beer on the tap. Around six in the morning hot... More

We spent 2 nights here on our way into the Caprivi Strip. We loved it. The viewing deck by the bar with ice cold draught beer and sparkling wine was absolutely wonderful. The staff were so friendly and made us incredibly welcome (they even made a special birthdaydessert and all the kitchen staff and waiters sang to my son) The... More

The location on the Kavango River is superb and the views at sunrise and sunset are stunning. The new deck is really great and the restaurant and bar area are great. The rooms are very nice and the parking is secure and near to the rooms. The service is good and friendly. We will definitely be back again.

Chalets clean with comfortable beds, set in beautiful garden with river frontage which even has its own small "beach". The food was good and we enjoyed the relaxing champagne sunset cruise with our guide Edison.

The Staff was very friendly,the rooms tidy and spacious, the property is clean and tidy, the garden beautiful and I loved the fireplace on the beach. I find that the breakfast could improve, may be more selected cheese and a bigger cold meat selection.
