Susuwe Island Lodge
An island lodge conjures up images of forest-shrouded seclusion, gentle river cruises and dreamy sunsets. Susuwe Island Lodge in the Caprivi has all of that and more.
Surrounded by the quiet contemplation of the Kwando River, the lodge is an enchanting feat of woodwork, built into the dense forest canopy and peeking out over the river, its floodplains and the Kalahari's savannah woodland.
The suites dwarf the massive four-posters and their amenities are worthy of a king: en suite double bathroom, lounge, bedroom, private deck and a sunken plunge pool. The main lodge is equally regal, built in and around the ancient trees and soaking in the splendid views, it has a convivial open fireplace and spacious lounge and dining areas.
Six brick and thatch suites with double bathroom, bedroom, lounge, wooden viewing deck, private plunge pool, curio shop, reference library, fireplace, lounge and dining areas
