Namibia is a vast land full of contrasts, from spectacular scenery and desolate beauty, to vibrant swamp-lands and dazzling wildlife. Kunene River Lodge is a Birders’ Paradise. The region hosts some endemic species, and several near-endemics, making it a very exciting area for bird enthusiasts to visit and explore, alone or with a guide.

Dawn is an ideal time to glimpse bird-life and at Kunene River Lodge we love to offer our Guests an early-morning Birding Cruise. Pete’s enthusiasm for birding led to the discovery of the first Cinderella Waxbill nest in the wild, and a number of rare bird sightings.

The following bird specials occur in the area:

  • Cinderella Waxbill,
  • Angola Cave Chat,
  • Rufous-tailed Palmthrush,
  • Bare-cheeked Babbler,
  • Grey Kestrel,
  • White-browed Coucal,

Kunene River Lodge provide the highest possible standard of accommodation and facilities for all our Guests. The Reception Area, Bar, Restaurant, Lodge Grounds and Activities are open to all, but to satisfy the diverse needs of travellers in this remote area we currently provide three distinct types of overnight accommodation :

  • Spacious Air-Conditioned Deluxe Rooms
    The Deluxe Rooms overlook a substantial lawn surrounded by trees and shrubs, near the secluded swimming pool set in its own lawn.
  • A-Frame Rustic Chalets
    Each Rustic Chalet is situated in its own beautiful plot, amongst the lush trees and shrubs which characterise Kunene River Lodge.
  • Campsites
    Many of our camping Guests comment on the quality, cleanliness and amenities of our campsites, most of which overlook the river.
