We stayed in the tented camp facility. Each tent and camping site has their own ablution - heaven. We opted for the sunset cruise which was so disappointing - the guide sat with his girlfriend without taking the opportunity to impart local knowledge about the people, vegetation, local geography - was boring and totally unimaginative! The food is very average..

We spent one night here and also went on their local river cruise. The room I had was upstairs (and some difficult stairs too), but it was nicely decorated and had a lovely little balcony overlooking the river. We even had a Gecko in our room! Not sure how it got in, but it was there when we arrived. The...

The rooms were dated. Rooms need some improvements. Not a friendly arrival. It looks like the staff is not allowed to be friendly. Maybe fine for fisherman, but not for international tourists... Food was okay and the boat cruise as well... You don't feel very welcome here...

Spent 1 night here 12/5/16 Setting lovely and besides the 2 swimming pools shown in the main photo there is now a newer pool too. The staff are good as is the convenient location and setting. Rooms are possibly a bit "tired" BUT totally spotlessly clean and MORE than adequate for a comfy nights sleep. The food is reasonably priced...

We stayed one night at Kaisosi. The setting on the banks of the river is lovely. We really enjoyed the bar area where the service was very friendly and food very good. The wine list was surprisingly extensive and well priced. Although some renovation is in progress the rooms can do with some upgrades as well. I must add that...

Stayed for 2 week stints for work over two months. This was the most laid back and comfortable of a number of lodges around rundu. The service is great and the staff very friendly. There are upstairs and downstairs rooms all facing the river. The rooms are comfy but the water in the bathrooms probably comes from the river. Decent...

The campsites are large and grassed and each has it's own ablutions. There is prolific bird life in the lovely shade trees. The only downside is that there is no river view from the campsites. We didn't use the restaurant but there is a lovely bar area with a river view. I would definitely recommend this place.

Big clean rooms with non broken moscito nets! Restaurant has good food but service is slow and some of crew act like they dont care at all. But it is a great place with nice atmosphere and big garden. I highly recommend to visit!

We stayed here for one night only. The rooms were very old-fashioned but spacious. The bathroom was okay but there was no shower, only a bathtub, where you'd splash around when taking a shower. The service can be improved. Only one lady who served us during our stay was very friendly and attentive, the others were very unmotivated. The lodge...
