Caprivi Houseboat Safari Lodge is an exclusive lodge nestled amid a lush green garden on the banks of the Zambezi River, a few kilometres east of Katima Mulilo in the Caprivi region of Namibia, offering genuine hospitality in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. The lodge offers five rustic, En-suite chalets, that open onto the riverbank; 3 camp sites with a power-point, light, running water and central ablutions, and a rose-wood deck with lounge bar.
The rustic thatched En-suite chalets are on the banks of the Zambezi River - equipped with a ceiling fan and mosquito nets. The chalets are built with reed walls and have canvas curtains opening up along the front, to give you that "sleeping in the open" feeling.
Three fairly private camp sites are available with communal ablutions consisting of a ladies' and men's shower and toilet. The ablution block also has two kitchenettes for those not wanting to braai, equipped with a small gas cooker and dish-washing facilities. Each camping site can accommodate two guests.
Zambezi Houseboats: Overnight safaris on the safari boats will take you down the Zambezi and/or Chobe Rivers to enjoy, with the rivers as your platform, the fascinating array of fauna and flora this region has to offer. Travel at a leisurely pace down the expanse of these mighty rivers with their endless floodplains and breath-taking sunsets. In the evening relax around the warmth of a camp fire on a secluded white sandbank before heading to the comfort of your tent, gently rocking to sleep to the sounds of an African night.
The camper boats are 7.5 m aluminium outback safari boats (a water-borne safari vehicle), powered by 60 hp outboard engines. With two roof top tents and a bunk bed on the lower deck, each boat can accommodate up to six guests. On board is a small kitchenette with a gas stove, basin and fridge, a dining area, a shower and a toilet. The boats are equipped with all the necessary kitchenware and camping equipment. A skipper will accompany you and will mainly serve as skipper and guide, assisting in other duties where and when possible (i.e. setting up camp, making fire etc.).
Activities: Let the guides take you to the rapids for the best tiger fishing in the upper Zambezi or further down the Zambezi looking for some bream. With a myriad of fish species abundant in the Zambezi River, ample angling opportunities are on offer. Famous for its tiger fish and bream, the river promises to challenge and enthrall both the angling enthusiast and the novice.
Enjoy a day out on the water with sunset, half day, or full day river cruises. Relax with a refreshing cold drink whilst enjoying a spectacular sunset over the Zambezi River. You might most likely spot some hippos and if you're really lucky, crocodiles, otters in addition to the many bird species gracing the Zambezi River.
