Zambezi Mubala Lodge


In the heart of southern Africa, approximately 2000km from the southern tip of the continent and from the equator, and equidistant between the Indian and Atlantic oceans, lies Namibia’s best-kept secret, the Zambezi Region.

Newly-built, modern, innovative and stylish, Zambezi Mubala is a secret river hideaway. Where water laps the shores of the mighty Zambezi. Where hippos laugh and the calls of fish eagles pierce the vast blue sky.

Leave your vehicle at Zambezi Mubala Camp, south of Katima Mulilo, to cruise downriver and enter the enchanted Mubala world. Here, vervet monkeys scamper through the trees, swamp boubous’ melodic banter rings through the air, while tree squirrels hop nimbly from branch to branch.

Relax on your balcony or lie back on your king-size bed in your spacious cabin and absorb the peace of the river. While mekoro slice through the water, the muted sound of cow bells wafts through the air and the cool breeze dances on the river.

The lodge sings its tributes to the colours of the water, the surrounding riverine vegetation and the clear blue sky. While adopting the local Silozi name for colour – ‘Mubala’. It tastefully explores this scenic theme in its shades of gentle blues and sea greens. While the colours punctuate wicker chairs and tint bungalow walls.

In addition revel in the peace of the surroundings. Such as the celebration of birdlife and the rich colours of life that pass by. While they drift along the steady current of the river.

Furthermore a bird-lover’s dream, Zambezi Mubala Lodge is home to over 450 species of birds. While hosting the springtime visit of one of the largest colonies of carmine bee-eaters in Africa. Moreover, these bright and cheerful visitors nest along the banks of the majestic Zambezi between the months of August and December. Filling the air with sound, activity and colour as they flash crimson breasts, swooping and rising into the air in an exuberant burst of energy.

Pad along the raised walkway between the bungalows in the late afternoon to spend the last hours of the day on a sunset boat cruise. Additionally stroll along the riverbank to visit the bee-eater colony. Or sit back in the open-sided baror while away the hours fishing on the river. Moreover, the catch-and-release of Tiger Fish is a popular activity for those who are fishermen at heart.

Complementing the desert grandeur in the rest of the country, the Zambezi generously offers the abundance of the river and the rhythm of a wild Africa to make the Namibian journey complete, while fitting snuggly into a trip to Chobe National Park and Victoria Falls.
