Introducing the Caprivi Strip at Hakusembe River Lodge

At Hakusembe River Lodge, owners Lena and Henry have turned their piece-of-paradise home into a delightful lodge. Found on the edge of the Kavango River, about 15km west of Rundu, the gateway to the Caprivi Strip, the water activities here are a pure delight!

Indulge in river cruises on the Hakusembe River Queen, tiger fishing, picnic safaris into Angola, bird watching (over 400 species have been recorded), or take a stroll to The Living Museum of Mbunza and learn more about the people who inhabit this beautiful land. 

The lodge is surrounded by neat a neat garden and shaded by acacia trees. Twenty separate thatched Bungalows line the river, each with its own private view, en-suite bathroom, air-conditioning, hot water and permanent electricity supply. The main lodge has a swimming pool, a hearty restaurant and a well-attended bar. Additional accommodation facilities include a Floating Chalet complete with en-suite bathroom, a Honeymoon Suite – which is the owner's converted house – and a small camping site.
