Kaisosi River Lodge

the Okavango River - Namibia

The Kaisosi River Lodge is situated 7kms East of the north-eastern Namibian town of Rundu. The lodge is set on the banks of the Okavango River, offering lovely views of the river, and is a convenient stopover for visitors on the way to the Popa Falls and the Zambezi Region (formerly the Caprivi Strip). Kaisosi River Lodge is set in large grounds and visitors will often be welcomed by one of the friendly peacocks.

The Rundu area itself has one of Namibia's most beautiful landscapes, and it's spectacular sunsets, and friendly people make it a popular destination for travellers.

This simple but well equipped lodge has a thatched main building with a restaurant, lively bar and a guest lounge to relax and unwind, after a hard day's drive. All meals are served from the chef's 'a la carte,' menu. There is a children's playground and 2 swimming pools, overlooking the river, to take a dip and cool down from the hot afternoon sun. A laundry service and internet connection is also available.

Accommodation is in 16 luxury air-conditioned chalets. All rooms are equipped with air-conditioning, telephone and a mosquito net. Children are more than welcome here. There are:

  • Double room: a double bed and bathroom with a bath.
  • Twin rooms: with two single beds in each, with either a bath or a shower.
  • Triple rooms: three single beds and a shower.
  • Family rooms: equipped with a double bed and 2 x single beds and a bath.

This is a perfect location for both fishing and bird watching, with many great spots dotted along the banks of the Kavango River. Guided fishing trips and river cruises can be also be organized from the lodge.
