Namibia » Kaokoland » Lodges » Kunene River Lodge

Kunene River Lodge is situated on the northern border of Namibia on the banks of the Kunene River.

The lodge is 50kms west of the Ruacana Falls and 100km east of the Epupa Falls in the region known as Kaokoland. The terrain is rugged, but there are tarred roads as far as Ruacana. Local roads are generally good, gravel surfaces, although the riverside road is subject to occasional flooding during the wet season.

Kunene River Lodge nestles beneath a beautiful canopy of indigenous trees stretching down to the river. In addition to its idyllic setting, facilities and in-house activities, Kunene River Lodge also serves as an ideal gateway for those setting out to explore the rugged and beautiful Kaokoland region of north-west Namibia. It has a restaurant, bar, pool and a shop and a laundry service.

Kunene River Lodge has 7 spacious, luxury bungalows, fully equipped with en-suite shower, WC and washbasin, remote controlled air-conditioning, fitted wardrobes and storage space. 5 bungalows are furnished with 2 double beds, and 2 bungalows are furnished with single beds.

There are also 4 A-frame rustic bungalows, each set in its own beautiful plot. These chalets give their guests a hint of the pioneering style of life in this part of Africa but, in doing so, they sacrifice neither comfort, convenience nor amenities. Each is equipped with an en-suite shower room, a WC washbasin, overhead cooling fan, wardrobe and storage area. There is an outside seating area. 3 of the rustic chalets have double beds, and the other one has two single beds.

The 11 bungalows are all laid out in the tranquil shade of the Jackalberry and Leadwood trees.

Activities at Kunene River Lodge include white water rafting, river boarding, bird watching, sundowner cruises, canoing, hiking, fishing and mountain biking.
