The lodge is situated only 200 metres upstream from the Epupa Falls and along the Kunene River. An oasis of peace and quiet - the perfect place to relax in the sweltering heat, when you aren't exploring all the area has to offer.
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 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.
Himba village tour; bird watching; Epupa Falls; hilltop sun sets; river rafting (only possible during high water season, to be booked direct at the lodge); hiking trails & guided crocodile walks
