A big suprise
This place was a nice surprise very good rooms smashing food and good fishing trips would stay there again
Needs a bit of TLC
Nice location but this place really needs some attention. Obviously we had been spoilt after Mushara Outpost.
Room was clean and very basic but nice view over the river. The rooms especially the bathrooms are in need of an upgrade. Staff were pleasant but lack of a uniform was noticed. One member of staff had trousers on that were very ripped. Food was ok, service was slow but this was explained.
As well as needing some repairs the lodge could also do with a general tidy up and clean ie all the rubbish under the veranda overlooking the river.
Nice overlooking the river at angola. Staff were standoffish but ok when approached. Room was big and had balcony although soundproofing between rooms was poor. Breakfast not great but dinner was good.Read more about the whole safari

Fine for an overnight stay. Food was good value. Pleasant grounds - liked the peacocks!Read more about the whole safari
Nice camping spot by the river
We only spent a short amount of time here, arriving in the afternoon and leaving early in the morning. The campsite are quite small and close together but each had it's own toilet block which is handy.
The reception area and bar overlooking the river have great atmosphere.
Kaisosi River Lodge review
The location of the Kaisosi River Lodge is its best assets. The lodge has a nice terrace facing the Okavango river. The room we had on the first floor was very big. We didn't make use of the balcony because of the cold weather, but it looked pleasant.
We had some problems with the water in the bathroom and the noise of the generator (installed by the government), but all these were quickly settled by the management. Luckily the generator noise stopped at night.
The restaurant offers an A la carte-menu and we must admit that we were disappointed. The meat was hard to chew and the salad had no taste. The food is definitely a minus point for this lodge, as even the breakfast was not tasty, which is difficult to imagine...
We booked a sunset cruise, where we expected to see some animals as well, but unfortunately in this part of the river, the animals have disappeared. So we enjoyed the beautiful sunset.
When we checked out, the machine for credit cards didn't work (that hadn't happened so far in our trip), but luckily we had enough cash.
A comfortable nights stop
We visited during the quiet season so renovation work was being done and the swimming pool was not in use.
The room although large was rather tired but we understand some are being improved.
