Taranga Safari Lodge

With just four enormous tented suites, built on high stilts and tucked into the dense riverside forest, accommodation at Taranga is secluded, tranquil and thoroughly relaxing.

The river glides by almost under your private balcony, birds call and in the distance local fishermen pole themselves through the channels on dugout canoes - the genuine article for a refreshing change.

The four-poster beds in each room (if you choose a double that is) are dwarfed by the octagonal tent with with floor to ceiling gauze windows that can be rolled up for the full show. A large and secluded en suite bathroom extends back into the trees and includes a free-standing slipper tub and a steaming hot shower. Portable air conditioning units do their level best against the heat amply aided by the generous shade of teak, jackalberry and mopane trees typical of this lush region.

The main lodge is an equally cavernous tented structure on a large platform with a viewing deck and the river below dominating the scene. The interior is elegant with white linen drapes and table clothes and leather chairs reminiscent of an East African safari scene from yesteryear.

Activities at Taranga Safari Lodge focus on the rather large river winding its en route to form the Okavango Delta: fishing, scenic river cruises, birdwatching and cultural tours. You can also take a stroll up-river with a pair of binos looking for any number of birds including fish eagles, kingfishers, jacanas and many, many more.

Situated 35km west of Rundu, Taranga Safari Lodge makes for a wonderful stopover between Vic Falls, Botswana and Caprivi to the east and Etosha and the rest of Namibia to the south.

Shametu River Lodge

Picture yourself as The Mariner, Kevin Costner's anti hero, meandering through the water. Think mokoro rather than a trimaran, river rather than sea. This is for those of you that like the waterworld of Africa. But whereas the film's been described as a mess masquerading as a movie you'll exit this lodge feeling calm, chilled and chipper.

Camp Kwando

Camp Kwando is a rustic and relaxed riverside lodge with three types of accommodation: camping, island chalets and tree houses. The camp has a shaded swimming pool and a thatched lounge, restaurant and bar that open onto the river.

Nunda River Lodge

Situated in the verdant region of Caprivi, seven furnished Meru tents and three traditional thatched chalets sit along the river bank surrounded by shady trees and manicured gardens.
