Namushasha River Lodge celebrates the wonders of the Zambezi water world with accommodation fit for a king. There’s a magic, a feeling or a charm that enraptures you in these northern realms. With elephants, hippos, myriad bird species, waterlilies and African bush, a visit to Namushasha provides an enriching adventure into Nature - to the accompaniment of the chiming of reed frogs, bird calls, hippo grunts and the soothing sound of a boat skimming through water. Namushasha’s impressive central entrance with wooden chandelier and carved animals leads guests into the attractive lodge set between the trees, in true African style. The dining room, with its high thatched roof, is open on the sides to the river world, providing a suitable – and airy - welcome to wonderland.

One of the captivating Caprivi lodges, Namushasha River Lodge offers guests a superlative choice of exciting activities: Stroll past the green-lawned campsite visited at night by hefty hippos to the traditional heritage centre (here, you’ll be able to learn about the Caprivian way of life from the Caprivians themselves who welcome you to their centre under a giant baobab and sweet-smelling thatch for song, dance and laughter); hop aboard the river boats for early morning or late afternoon river cruises to explore the channels and discover the diverse bird life; or take a trip to the Bwabwata National Park, first by boat along the waterways to later transfer to a game vehicle for an excursion into African bush. At the end of the day, there’s nothing that can quite compare to a red Caprivi sunset. Whether teetotaller or not, you’ll want to have something in hand to toast the day. Situated 24km south of Kongola on the C49 (D3501), Namushasha is the perfect stopover en route to Victoria Falls – or a grand destination in itself. Be enraptured.  GPS : S 17° 98.627 E 23° 29.562
