Windhoek, Namibia
Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

Great game drives in the Babwata National Park and boat trips on the Kwando river. One of the best addresses in the Caprivi / Zambesi Region in Namibia. Abandoned bird and wild life. Hippos encounter is a life time experience.

When we showed up at the reception we were kindly greeted by the staff, until they recognized that we're only campingtourists. From then on nobody was really eager to help us. Neither informing us about possible activities, nor helping us when we wanted to buy something in the shop. After asking in the afternoon, they allowed us to eat in...

Our experience with great service started before we arrived. Due to heavy rains we got stuck in the Mudumu Game Reserve on route to the lodge. Lance the manager arranged for us to be towed out by a park ranger. The boat trips on the Kwando provided very good birding. An incredible highlight was encountering a herd of about 500...

Our 4 rooms were dirty, the beds were not clean, the lodge needs renovation and the prices are way too high for the bad quality. It seemed that this lodge is not properly managed for quite some time. We have staid in a few Gondwana lodges up to now and were always happy, but Namushasha was a big disappointment.

Wonderful lodge in exquisite nature, room with big balcony overlooking the river and wetlands. Wonderful bird life. The boat cruise is highly recommended. Food is good, not as much choice as other Godwana lodges. Friendly staff. Peaceful and restful holiday experience.

This was the first time Bustards Birding Tours had stopped at this lodge, and what a great place it was, to put your feet up, do a bit of afternoon birding, photography and wind down over an excellent meal and chat with friends. During a bit of mid day down time, I was privileged to spot a Sitatunga across the...

Beautiful lodge, fantastic setting. Efficient and friendly service! The River Cruise in particular was my highlight, our guide Rector was amazing and really went the extra mile to give us the best possible experience. We had the most unforgettable experience viewing the hippos- truly amazing!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
As the evening sky turns into a red glow you sit back, high above the river, enjoying a chilled drink while listening to the deep grunt of hippos – this experience awaits you on the sundowner deck of Namushasha River Lodge on the Kwando River in eastern Caprivi. Situated 24 km south of Kongola, it is the perfect stop-over en route to the Victoria Falls. Apart from 24 rooms in chalets the lodge consists of a restaurant, a bar and a swimming pool. Watch elephant, hippo, buffalo or sable antelope on our excursions by boat or off-road vehicle, visit a traditional village in the vicinity or take time to observe the colourful birdlife (more than 400 species).A camping site for 16 tents pitched on lawn is also available at Namushasha. ... more   less
