Mubala means 'colour' in the local Silozi language, a reference to the harmonious colours of nature reflected on the Zambezi waters. Stay here on the way to or from Kasane, Victoria Falls and Livingstone before venturing into Chobe Natonal Park and further south to the world-famous Okavango Delta and Moremi Game Reserve.
Modern-day explorers can also experience the thrills and excitement on the Zambezi on guided tours in purpose built boats. There is an exceptional variety of Namibian birdlife, game and vegetation to observe on an incredible labyrinth of waterways, floodplains and riverine forests.

The sparkling pool is the place to go to escape the hot Namibian afternoon sunshine, after a long drive or activity or to just cool off. Afterwards you can chill and relax on the shaded sun loungers, all set close to the water's edge.
