Kunene River Lodge

The lodge is situated on the bank of the Kunene River which forms the north-western border between Angola and Namibia. A lush canopy of indigenous trees provides shade for chalets and campsites, while the swimming pool is on the sunny lawn. From the bar and restaurant, a deck extends over the river, making for a spectacular location to enjoy a drink or a delicious meal with game viewing opportunities to boot.

Excitement abounds nearby at Ondorusu Gorge, where the adventurous at heart can try white-water rafting. Two of the four-day rafting excursions take you along parts of the river where few have ventured, camping overnight on the riverbank.

Spot rare endemic birds during the bird cruise, meet the Himba people and learn about their culture, and marvel at the African sunset mirrored in the river during a sundowner cruise.

Your stay will be filled with adventure and memorable moments.
