New Gondwana Lodge at Namibia’s Northern Border

Situated 12 km west of Rundu, Hakusembe River Lodge makes for the perfect stopover on the way into Caprivi and to the Victoria Falls. The river scenery forms a delightful contrast to the bush savannah, semi-desert and desert in the rest of the country.

Windhoek, Namibia, March 29, 2012 --( The 10 chalets (with air-conditioning) offer magnificent views of the river and the lush vegetation which teems with diverse birdlife. Guests can enjoy the enchanting atmosphere during dinner in the restaurant and with a drink at the bar. The swimming pool invites to cool off on hot summer days. A campsite is also available.

Since Gondwana took over the lodge on 1 December 2012 a new lodge manager has been appointed; the chalets and other facilities have been renovated. Staff underwent training to enhance their skills. Furthermore a new boat has been acquired for the river cruises. Here their guests have the opportunity to take a closer look at grunting hippos and sunbathing crocodiles – from a safe distance, needless to say…

A special treat for romantic stays is a floating chalet on the river, offering great views and spectacular sunrises and sunsets. Or join an excursion to the cultural village nearby.

The attractions of this region are the Popa Falls, the abundance of game in the river scenery of Caprivi and, naturally, the Victoria Falls.
