A great place to camp if you are heading from Waterberg or Etosha National Park to explore the wetlands of the Caprivi (or vice versa). Break up the driving distances before heading further into the Zambezi Region. The peaceful atmosphere on the banks of the river makes for a welcome stop over. Stay longer if you wish to relax, explore the water, go fishing, enjoy the myriad of birds or get to know the friendly Kavango people of the region.
Campers can make use of the lodge facilities and it’s just a stroll away. This means you have access to the wooden viewing deck to enjoy a sundowner cocktail or take a sunset cruise on the Hakusembe River Queen. There’s WiFi too (if you need to connect), a curio shop, restaurant, bar and a swimming pool. If you need laundry done, you can do that at the lodge too. Grand.
Set up camp. Relax. Sit and listen. In the background only the river and the chirps of birds. Enjoy a picnic and as night falls the open skies and tales around the fire. That has to be one of the greatest pleasures of camping, especially in a setting such as this. You’ll see.
A sunset boat cruise is a must along the river. You can book this with the lodge. Alternatively go early morning, a good option for the avid birders. Try your hand at fishing. It’s charged per hour, so here’s hoping you get lucky, if not, it’s still a win to spend time out on the water and well worth indulging in the quiet of nature. One of the main reasons to enjoy this place.
