Namushasha River Lodge lies on the banks of the Kwando River as it cuts through the lush Caprivi Strip (also known as the Zambezi region) on its way from Namibia to Botswana. Set under giant riverside trees and overlooking a hippo pool, the lodge has 24 thatched, including two family suites where young children are welcome.

It is well-placed as very comfortable accommodation for travellers driving 4x4s between Namibia’s world-famous Etosha National Park and the border town of Kasane, where self-drivers enter en route to Botswana’s Okavango Delta or Zambia’s Victoria Falls.

Namushasha’s prime location also gives you easy access to Bwabwata National Park, which is an important migration zone for the region’s large herds of elephant and buffalo. Successful conservation work has seen the reintroduction of rare species antelope species such as red lechwe and sitatunga. ‘Bwabwata’ means ‘the sound of bubbling water’, a fitting name since the park is supported by the Kwando River. Head to Horseshoe Lake, a permanent oxbow lake that is ringed by white-sand beaches and Zambezi teak woodlands or explore deciduous woodlands comprising wild syringa and copalwood trees that are home to 339 recorded bird species and nearly 40 mammal types.

The lodge’s impressive entrance is dominated by a wooden chandelier and numerous animal carvings. ‘Champagne safaris’ in Bwabwata and cruises on the Kwando River are great ways of exploring the area with the knowledgeable guides. You can also visit the heritage centre, which celebrates the traditions and history of the local Mashi culture.

Family Room

Located a short walk from the main lodge, the three Family Chalets at Namushasha are specially-designed two-bedroom chalets, each with a shared bathroom and separate toilet – perfect for a family with young children.

The Family Chalet is set furthest from camp and doubles as a romantic Honeymoon Chalet; it features an outdoor shower and private hot tub.

Twin Room

Twenty of the 21 Standard Chalets have twin beds (one has a double bed), all with both mosquito nets and air conditioning. Complete with electronic safes and tea-and-coffee stations, each chalet has an en suite bathroom with a shower and a single vanity.

Two of the Standard Chalets will appeal to families travelling with older children; these have an inter-leading door, giving children who want a little more privacy their own en suite bathroom.


Namushasha’s thatched main area is home to a restaurant and well-stocked bar as well as an outdoor deck from where you can watch the hippos in the river. There is complimentary Wi-Fi and self-drivers have secure parking for their vehicles.

The lodge also has a small swimming pool where you can relax during the heat of the day. A laundry service is available.


Namushasha River Lodge includes a buffet breakfast, served in the thatched dining area. Lunch and dinner are also available at the in-house restaurant. Vegetarian dishes are available.
