Overview of Hakusembe River Lodge

Located where the borders of Botswana and Angola begin  to squeeze their neighbour Namibia into the narrow but fertile Caprivi Strip, Hakusembe River Lodge is a welcome sight for self-drivers who will appreciate its peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. The Okavango River provides a haven for myriad bird species, hippos and crocodiles, and is the perfect spot for champagne sunset cruises aboard the Hakusembe River Queen.

Back on land, visit the Mbunza village to meet people from the Kavango community.

This lodge is as comfortable welcoming larger groups on safari as it is with couples or families, and children of all ages will easily make themselves at home.

Hakusembe sits on the Okavango River as it meanders its way through the Caprivi to later empty out into the Okavango Delta in neighbouring Botswana. Set in lush, bird-filled gardens, the lodge has 20 air-conditioned suites, including two rooms that can take three guests each.

It also has a swimming pool and restaurant and takes full advantage of its riverside setting to offer exciting water-based activities ranging from champagne sunset cruises and fishing trips to bird-watching outings. Back on land, you can take a stroll to Mbunza to learn more about village life in Namibia.
