Hakusembe River Lodge enjoys a picturesque riverine setting ideal for self-drivers, families and those on a romantic honeymoon getaway in Namibia. As it is only 15km west of the northern Namibian town of Rundu it provides an ideal stopover for a couple of nights on the way to the Zambezi Region from Etosha National Park or other ares in central / northern Namibia.
Guests can look forward to a warm and jolly welcome from their hosts after a hard, dusty day's drive. The thatched main lodge area has a reception, restaurant and bar. Enjoy dinner on the large deck after a champagne 'sunset' cruise. An English breakfast, light lunch, and the more traditional fare of fish, venison or game steaks are served for dinner. The lodge pride themselves on their 'gordon bleu', specialty cooking, and a buffet style service will be introduced for larger groups. There is also disabled access, a laundry service and an Internet connection.
Accommodation is in either of the 20 river facing en-suite bungalows or a floating chalet. Children of all ages are welcome here.
Activities from Hakusembe River Lodge include guided river safaris, an early morning guided bird watching walk, (over 400 species have been spotted locally), bream and tiger-fishing, (you can have your tiger fish mounted by the lodge!!) and the very popular champagne sunset cruises. Water ski-ing can also be organized on request.
Hop aboard a river boat for a guided sunset boat cruise and experience the water world of the Okavango or join ne of our fishing trips.

An upmarket lodge and spa on the banks of the Kavango River. The only traditional luxury lodge on this stretch of river.
A few kilometers east of Rundu a nice functional lodge that more than adequately serves as an overnight stop while travelling through the Kavango and Zambezi region. The rooms, bar and restaurant area offer lovely views of the Kavango River.
Situated on the banks of the river (hence the name) in Rundu.
Situated close to the Mahangu Park in west Caprivi - this is an excellent stop-over between Namibia, Maun (in Botswana) and the Victoria Falls.
Nambwa Lagoon Camp is situated on the lagoon side of Nambwa Island, within the heart of KAZA.
Refreshingly, and surprisingly for the area, this lodge does not have the word 'River' as part of its name. Do not be misled it is situated on the banks of the river opposite the Caprivi Game Park (Bwabwata National Park).
A rustic river side campsite and lodge offering excellent value for money. A lively bar and restaurant ensures this appeals to the younger or more socially inclined traveller.
Close to Popa Falls and the Mahango Reserve this lodge offers stunning river views.
Close to the Popa Falls (a series of rapids on the Kavango River), this rest camp was renovated in 2013
Near the village of Divundu, this small but wonderfully managed lodge is a perennial favourite of ours. Lovely wooden chalets, with large decks overlook the river. Those wanting to experience the river can choose from fishing and sunset river cruises.
On a beautiful plot of indigenous plants and trees overlooking the river.
Up-market luxury safari camp in a spectacuar setting overlooking the Kunene River. A range of activities are included and a highlight is a visit to the local Himba community.
One of the best lodges for birders visiting Namibia - but also great for fishing, chilling or generally becoming part of the family (the family consists of a host of creatures including goats, otters and guinefowls all lovingly adopted by the owners).
These are honest reviews, both good and bad, from our travellers who visited this property.
Very beautiful, great bird watching trip. But not near any game parks to see larger animals and not near hippos
