Owners Lena and Henry have turned their piece-of-paradise home into a delightful lodge called Hakusembe River Lodge, on the edge of the Kavango River, about 15km west of Rundu - the gateway to the Caprivi Strip.
Six 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; the whole is surrounded by a neat garden and shaded by acacia trees. 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.
Hakusembe River Lodge - Water activities
Activities at Hakusembe River Lodge make the most of the bounteous Kavango River – the river that forms the world-famous Okavango Delta in Botswana – and its environs: river cruises, fishing, skiing, picnic safaris into Angola, birdwatching (over 400 species recorded), and a bit of culture by night when, if you request it in advance, the local villagers will put on an elaborate dance show.
