Description in other languages:   Kunene River Lodge

The Kunene River Lodge is sited on the banks of the Kunene River, 50 km west of Ruacana Falls, and 100km east of the Epupa Falls and is one of Namibia’s best-known adventure lodges. The Lodge nestles beneath a beautiful canopy of indigenous trees and forms an excellent gateway to the northwest of the rugged and beautiful Kaokoland region.
Accommodation consists of luxury air-conditioned bungalows with twin double beds and en-suite facilities, rustic chalets and beautifully positioned campsites beneath the Jackal berry and Leadwood trees.
The Lodge also offers a restaurant, bar with deck overlooking the Kunene River pool, and much more.
As well as exceptional accommodation, Kunene River Lodge offers an impressive range of outdoor activities. As one of the few lodges in Namibia to offer white water rafting expeditions, Kunene River Lodge boasts an impressive in-house rafting operation complete with APA (African Paddlers Association) trained guides and top quality rafting equipment.
Guests can enjoy a leisurely sundowner cruise drifting down the Kunene River admiring the spectacular scenery and sunsets whilst sipping your favorite drink. Early morning bird watching trips with our knowledgeable staff offer a fascinating and scenically beautiful way to start the day.

A 4 x 4 vehicle is highly recommended during the rainy period when driving in the northern areas, and it is advisable to phone the Lodge a day before arrival to enquire about the road conditions – Tel: 065 274 300 or 065 685 016
