Shaded by the Makalani Palm Tree forest, fourteen thatched chalets look out on the river with a small veranda – the perfect place for you, a cooling drink and the setting sun to complete the day. If you would prefer to self-cater then there is also a small campsite with nine stands, an ablution with hot water and cooking facilities.
The restaurant, although simple, offers a 3-course dinner which has the potential to far exceed your expectations – especially given that the closest shop is quite far away. Breakfast is served buffet-style in the morning, where you can watch the early traffic on the river as animals prepare for the day ahead.
The lodge swimming pool is probably a wise choice to cool off in; unfortunately the resident crocodiles and hippos wallowing in the river make it impossible to swim in although a river cruise is allows you to view these animals in safety as well as other animals which come to the river for water.
If you’re visiting for a few days, you can pop off to the OvaHimba Village for a cultural experience, or take a 10min guided walk to the Epupa Falls. Sunsets from the nearby hilltop are also not to be missed.
