Kazile Island 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.

Read through our staff profiles and it seems the Caprivi is our collective favourite destination - probably as an antidote to all the great big open spaces, blue skies and spectacular desert scenery of the rest of Namibia.

Featuring, nay forming, the very habitats that make Botswana’s Okavango Delta such a fantastic game viewing experience, but without the exclusive prices and costly access, the Caprivi remains a much underrated African safari destination.

And so we get very excited when news of a safari lodge spreads through the land and in Kazile Island Lodge recently opened (as of March 2017) there is a great deal to be excited about.

For a start this little safari lodge is actually on an island - accessible by safari boat - inside the Bwabwata National Park surrounded by as much pristine wilderness and prime game viewing glory you could ever hope for. And Kazile is brought to you by the same folk behind the very successful Nambwa Tented Lodge in the same concession inside the KAZA - a trans-frontier wildlife sanctuary that, when all formalities are complete, will be the world’s largest nature reserve of any kind.

Accommodation is in Meru-style tents elevated on wooden decks and furnished to a high standard without compromising the bush experience: en suite bathrooms with hot running water, comfortable beds beneath elegant mosquito drapes, fans, power outlets and a private viewing deck.

The main lodge features a wonderful open-air lounge jutting into (and above, luckily) the Kwando River; a cool, spacious living area opens onto the never-ending floodplain invariably dotted with elephants, buffalos, hippos and the full offering of Africa’s amazing wildlife including lion, rare sightings of leopard, cheetah and hyena, giraffe, zebra, many antelope and hundreds of different bird species.

Facilities

Full board accommodation in 10 elevated Meru-style safari tents; en suite bathrooms with hot running water; private game viewing deck; hair dryer; cooling fan; 220v power outlet (generator-supplied, waking hours only); personal safe; complimentary mineral water; main living area with lounge, bar, dining area and a large game viewing deck; laundry service; airstrip and transfers

Activities

Guided river safaris in specially adapted game viewing boats are one of the best ways to get safely close to big game (they’re strangely not concerned with whatever’s on the water and so carry on their daily business as if you weren’t even there); guided game drives into Bwabwata National Park; guided bush walks with an experienced ranger; visits to the Mashi village and craft market
