Kunene River Lodge is situated on the bank of the Kunene River, 100 km east of Epupa Falls and 50 km west of Ruacana Falls. The lodge is actually located at the north-western extremity of Namibia, nearly as far as it could possibly be from Windhoek.

Many of the camping guests comment on the quality, cleanliness and amenities of the campsites, most of which overlook the river.
Kunene River Lodge operates Namibia's leading Rafting Adventure Centre where novices and experts alike can enjoy a thrilling taster through the rapids of the spectacular Ondorusu Gorge, a two day adventure from Ruacana through the Gorge to the Lodge, or a tailor-made camping expedition paddling 100 km down-stream for up to four days, from the Lodge to Epupa Falls. All under the expert supervision of our fully-trained resident guides.
The last of these trips offers a unique opportunity to discover the rugged interior of north-west Namibia by river, where few have ventured before. Sense the excitement and romance of the early days of African exploration while absorbing the peace, solitude and grandeur of this vast wilderness; sleep under the stars in this timeless lost world where the mighty river flows relentlessly through such stunning scenery - in places still, deep and mirror-smooth - elsewhere, raging white through rocky gorges.
