Caprivi River Lodge

We’re often asked about accommodation in Katima Mulilo, the Nambian town on the border with Zambia, some 2 hours drive from Livingstone. In the past it’s been difficult to recommend anywhere. Now though, we’ve had a commendation from one of our Guests for Caprivi River Lodge – approximately 4.5 kms east of Katima. There are 12 accommodation units and the lodge is owned and managed by Keith and Mary Rooken Smith. On their website they say:

Wake up to the sounds of the Zambezi in our cool, comfortable, thatched, river-facing chalets each with:
• en-suite facilities
• Ceiling Fans
• Bar Fridge
• Electrical Kettle
• telephones

Also offered: very cozy cabins with:
• en-suite facilities
• Air Conditioning
• Bar Fridge
• Electrical Kettle
• Braai Place
• Screened Stoops (Porches)

Our fishermen’s cabins with outside ablutions, with hot showers; these cabins are suitable for backpackers or older children. The cabins are air-conditioned with braai facilities and screened to keep the bugs at bay while you sit back and enjoy the sounds of the Caprivi.

Caprivi River Lodge has a swimming pool, bar and dining facility. Meals are served on the open lapa where one can sit back, relax and enjoy the sunsets over the mighty Zambezi River, surrounded by the sounds of nature.”

Sounds great doesn’t it? And as mentioned it comes highly recommended!
