Entering Hakusembe River Lodge at the end of the winding gravel track, a refreshing image of green lawn greets you. From their sky high branches giant trees, wave a welcome above thatched chalets and a strip of sparkling river. Instantaneously beauty soothes your soul. You have reached the verdant Hakusembe river oasis. The Kavango which rises on Angola and flows on to the Botswana swamps.. Calm descends. This calm remains present for the nights and days of your visit. Fish eagles fly up between the reeds. Locals row their dugout canoes on the river. From the Angolan villages on the far bank muted sounds float over the waters. Float your worldly worries downstream. 

Situated 16km from Rundu in the Kavango region, this gem of a lodge (with campsite) provides that necessary break from the road. It's one of the Caprivi accommodation treasures in the northern reaches of the country. You'll soon etch this discovery into itineraries, breaking the long haul from Windhoek and Etosha to the Zambezi and Vic Falls. Excitement builds up as you turn onto the entrance road. Relief washes over you as you reach Hakusembe River Lodge. You are back. Welcome. GPS-coordinates in 'degree, decimal-minutes': S 17° 51.033 E 19° 40.287
