A hot shower, a good meal and a comfortable bed: what more could you want at a stopover? A lot if you're staying at Hakusembe River Lodge on the Okavango River.
You will find Hakusembe Lodge on your way to or from Caprivi and Victoria Falls a most welcoming stopover, especially after the long, dusty road – right on the bank of the Okavango River set among ancient acacia trees and manicured gardens.
Ten neat air-conditioned chalets, a family room and floating bungalow face the river rich with birdlife and all the basic amenities to ensure a comfortable stay.
Located just 16km west of Rundu, Hakusembe River Lodge is ideally placed to revive and refresh you while on-route to Caprivi, Vic Falls or Etosha National Park.
Relaxing is high on the order of activities here but for those of you looking for something to while away the hours; you can go on a tiger-fishing trip, canoe safari or a romantic champagne cruise down the river – what a great way to spend the day.

A favourite pick from us for good, above-standard accommodation on the western side of the Caprivi. Shametu River Lodge is roughly 10km from Divundu with views of Popa Falls.
Camp Kwando is a charming, rustic spot in eastern Caprivi with accommodation options ranging from tree houses to island chalets.
Ngepi Camp in western Caprivi is a whole lot of fun for the whole family. A quirky, rustic lodge with a floating river pool on the Okavango River. It’s a great spot for birding.
I cannot say enough about this great company and Ashlee herself... best honeymoon we could have wished for!
