Tsumkwe Country 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.

After three hours of featureless gravel road, the Tsumkwe Country Lodge may seem like an oasis. And indeed it is: the lodge has nine rooms - five are teak bungalows the other brick and mortar attachments to the main lodge - with en suite bathrooms and an impeccable level of cleanliness. The main lodge is an open-plan timber, rock and thatch construction that houses the bar and restaurant and incorporates that essential item in this parched land - a pool.

You may want to go there to satisfy a burning desire to visit one of the most remote regions of Namibia. But you will need some careful planning and the expert supervision of Arno Oosthuysen who has single-handedly opened a crack in the door that is leaking light into an area of outstanding beauty, untouched wilderness and immense cultural wealth.

Still known as Bushmanland, though not officially, the area in north-eastern Namibia is home to the Ju/'hoansi, the largest and most traditional group of the remaining Bushman or San people in the Kalahari. Tsumkwe Country Lodge offers a fully inclusive safari that goes to Nhoma Camp, owned and run by the San, where you will spend your days experiencing the fascinating hunting and gathering ways of this ancient people.
