Caprivi Houseboat Safari Lodge

Caprivi Houseboat Safari Lodge

Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

Fully catered and guided, all you have to do is gawk at the passing riverside and its parade of birdlife, elephants, hippos, crocs, buffalos and all manner of plains game.

Evenings see you sitting around the campfire under the stars recounting the day's adventure while your guide prepares a bush meal that can't be beat.

The boats have two rooftop tents each and bunk beds on the deck sleeping a total of six, ideal for families on a self-drive holiday adventure. Could it get any more fun? Yes it can. Wildlife is strangely unconcerned with floating vessels and you can get to within spitting distance of elephants, buffalos, lions, giraffes, zebras and general plains game along the water's edge. And in between spotting big game on the banks you can fish and spot birds or just lounge on the boat reading.

The base camp at Kutima Mulilo is three hours' drive from Victoria Falls and Chobe National Park making Caprivi Houseboat Safaris a perfect companion to your Vic Falls and Botswana safari. With some of Africa's best game viewing, a UNESCO Natural Wonder and the excitement of an overnight river adventure, this little corner of Namibia has just about everything you need for your ultimate African safari.

The lodge has five rustic en suite chalets hidden in the riverine forest along the Zambezi River. Reed walls open onto a private river view and ceiling fans and mosquito nets ensure a peaceful night's rest - although the you might find the morning roll-call of Pel's fishing owl, swamp bous bous, malachite kingfishers, lilac-breasted rollers and any of the 400 other bird species in the region a tad early.

Self-drive campers are catered for with three secluded campsites with power points and shared ablutions.

The camper boats - the reason for being here - are 7.5m long and equipped with cooking facilities, a shower and toilet and six beds (four on top and two bunk beds on the main deck). You can self-cater but we recommend you go for the fully catered option to make the most of your incredible river journey. Itineraries go from one night up to five nights on the river.
