Kunene River Lodge
Kunene River Lodge is situated in Kaokoland, 50 km west of Ruacana Falls and 100 km east of Epupa Falls. Since taking over the Lodge in 2005, Pete and Hillary Morgan have devoted themselves to improving its facilities, and building on the reputation of the Lodge in this uniquely remote and tranquil corner of Namibia
The wide range of facilities and activities on offer allows Guests to do as little or as much as they like, from relaxing and soaking up the atmosphere and magnificence of the natural surroundings to riding the white water rapids in the gorges of the mighty Kunene River, or exploring more distant reaches of the unspoilt riverscape, under the expert guidance of the resident team of fully trained rafting guides.
Bird enthusiasts will grasp the unique opportunity to seek out the elusive Cinderella Waxbill and other rare species. Less specialised nature enthusiasts, will enjoy tracking down the many small animals, insects and birds to be found around the Lodge. Additional activities include visiting a local Himba village, hiking, fishing, canoeing, Sundowner cruises and Early Morning Birding cruises.
Lodge facilities include restaurant, bar and bar-deck overhanging the river, and a welcoming swimming pool. Accommodation ranges from deluxe en-suite air-conditioned rooms, through rustic chalets to campsites equipped with electricity, barbecue / braai area and communal ablution blocks, all tastefully sited within the luxuriant grounds of the Lodge, in the shade of the tree canopy, and overlooking the river.
Guests are guaranteed a generous welcome and true Namibian hospitality in this serene location which has been aptly described as A Piece of Paradise.
