“Very pleasant accommodation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

The lodge is situated in a magnificent garden on the edge of the Zambezi River. The individual chalets are set amongst trees and bushes providing sufficient privacy. The rooms are more on the basic side (very clean though) but the setting and the service and food more than make up for it. The owners are extremely helpful and make you feel very welcome.

I would definately stay here again.

We overnight at the place, travelling from South Africa via Botswana to central Namibia. The place is much more appealing compare to the pictures on the websit. The owners and staff were all very friendly and helpful, especially to assist with the services of a motormechanic on a Saturday afternoon. The chalet (2 bed and bathroom - shower) was neat and clean and the Wolly the warthog add to the charm of the place. We struggled a bit to find the road (off from the tar road) to the place at night time. We enjoyed the set dinner on the deck.

We had been driving from Rundu all day long in the rain and were happy to arrive at this lodge. We had the choice of a room and decided to stay on the riverfront. The rooms are clean and comfortable and very quiet at night. The view on the Sambesi is splendid. The staff was very helpful despite the absence of the owner. Also dinner was delicious.
The other chalets situated behind the riverfront looked nice as well.
we had interesting discussions with other guests and really enjoyed our short time there. Thank you!

I arrived at the Katima Mulilo airport and was picked up by Keith, the owner of the lodge. They do have two kinds of lodges. The cheaper ones, with airco, not facing the river directly and your own BBQ in front of the lodge. The other ones facing the river are really worth to stay for some time. Arriving at the lodge I was welcomed by Mary the wife of Keith. I took the river facing lodge and it was so quite and nice! And clean! And even the small pool is very clean!! She explained me all the possibilities of fishing and excursions on the Zambezi River. In the main building is a great lounge and a very nice bar. Dinner is served in the open restaurant facing the river. The food is great and due to the strong lights in the garden no musquito's. From here I visited also the Chobe Park in Botswana and realized that this lodge is much cheaper than the expensive hotels in Botswana. All together I did have a great time and do thnka Mary and Keith for threre hospitaly.
