Kaisosi river lodge

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.

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.

Triple rooms: three single beds and a shower.

Family rooms: equipped with a double bed and 2 x single beds and a bath.
