Namushasha Lodge is a secluded haven of tranquillity, its elevated position looking through a thick canopy of jackalberry and mangosteen trees, on a quiet oxbow lake in east Caprivi Strip. The lodge is in a prime safari location between the Mudumu, Mamili, and Bwabwata Game Parks.
The 27 chalets at Namushasha Lodge have private views over the Kwando River - which flows into the Linyanti Wetlands, Chobe, and ultimately the Zambezi River - and its vast floodplain. The rooms have en suite bathrooms, elegant mosquito drapes over sleigh beds, and granite tiled floors. The main lodge at Namushasha has a plunge pool and sun deck, a lively bar, and a buffet restaurant. The view tends to be of the river, the game-spattered floodplains or the bird-filled riverine forest.
Namushasha Lodge: the heart and soul of Safariland
The Caprivi is bound on all sides by some of the best game viewing in southern Africa including the famous Okavango Delta, Chobe and Linyanti, and the game parks in and around Victoria Falls; and the Caprivi itself has enormous tracts of protected wilderness areas. Being on a river amid all this wilderness just adds the cream to the cake. Activities at Namushasha Lodge include fishing, sunset river cruises, game drives, a 4km hiking trail, birding (over 400 species to be found in Caprivi), visits to the community craft centre, and cultural interaction with local Caprivians.
