Reviewed 1 week ago

Nunda is on the banks of the Cubango River feeding the Okavango Basin. Thus it is well situated as a stop if you plan to skirt the Okavango Basin (which is a giant marsh and largely impenetrable by vehicles). It is also on the road through Caprivi to Chobe and Vic Falls. We stayed in one of the elongated rondavels...

As soon as we arrived, we were welcomed by the owner of the lodge, Cameron, who is there all the time ensuring his guests are well taken care of. The camp is located on the quiet and peaceful river. We stayed in the luxury tent on the banks of the river with a beautiful outdoor seating area. The tents were...

Were welcomed by Cameron, the owner, and a member of his exceptional staff. The cottage offered everything and more, with the view of the Okavango River at our doorstep. The free flowing lounge, dining room, bar and veranda were relaxing and added to the beauty of the surrounding area. Meals were 'top notch' and served by well trained and cheerful...

This was our second stay at Nunda and the service and meals were as good as ever. The bungalows have been improved and now have fully enclosed bathrooom and shower areas. Sundowners on the main deck provided spectacular sunsets with the Kavango river as a backdrop.

Nice location at the river and close to the Mahango game Reserve. Chalets and central facilities are a bit basic. We did not do river cruise (seemed not to interesting) but drove our own game drive in the Mahango Game Reserve which we highly recommend

Stayed for 2 nights here making are way along the Caprivi Strip. The Owner - Cameron was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were fine - a bit basic compared to some but good value for money.

Don't pass this place by if you are travelling through the Caprivi. Very few campsites so a reservation is advisable. Beautiful ablutions. Hot water galore, and good water pressure in the showers. Ablution block has a dressing area, large sink, plants inside. There's a dishwashing area. Water spicket and braii on site. Lots of sun comes with the river campsites....
