Nkwazi Lodge review

We only stayed one night but would have been happy to stay longer.
The room was rustic and spacious with good facilities.
The location on the riverside was interesting - I was able to watch Angolan dancers on the opposite bank.
The food was very good and Valerie the owner welcomed everybody at the table. We were also treated to cake and drinks on arrival.
Valerie supports the local villagers with sales in her shop and also dancing displays - the money goes direct to them.

Nkwazi Lodge review

Our arrival seemed a little haphazard and I was not sure that they were expecting us. It took several looks at vraious pieces of paper to see where which rooms we were to stay in. We did not meet the owners at this time. The staff were however keen to help in whatever way they could. It was good to be able to park the car immediatly next to our room.

Unfortunately the site had been affected by flooding over a long period earlier in the year, and this has resulted in the swimming poool being relocated to higher ground, away from the balcony area immediatley in front of the main meeting area. The works are still underway, and while we were told that the pool was fit to swim in now, it looked to me like there is still a fair bit of work to do.

The flooding does not appear to have adversely affected the other facilities such as roooms which were of a good size and well equipped.

Food was served in buffet style and there was a good selection of dishes, and the food tasted good and there was plenty of it.

Nkwazi Lodge review

The recent floods had done some damage to the lodge and its grounds, but the rooms were clean.

The owners and the staff were great, super-friendly and very committed to making our stay pleasant. And the food was absolutely super.

Nkwazi Lodge review

Some 8 miles off the main road , outside Rundu. A camp on the banks of the main Okavango river. We arrived late afternoon and the room was fine.

We were not offered any activities , but were not that bothered as we only using the camp for an overnight stop. Both the evening meal and breakfast were buffet style and fine. Again the car was cleaned first thing in the morning unprompted.

A very friendly atmosphere at Nkwazi

The accommodation here was a newly built brick cottage by the river quite a way from the main lodge. Although not quite finished the newly tiled bathroom was beautifully decorated.

The food was very good and served as a buffet. Nkwazi has a happy, serene atmosphere.

Nice location.

Sorry to sat this place did not live up to what the brchure had to say, "want some peace and quiet" On our arrivall at 1.30ish pm we were shown to our chalet which was to the left of the main building on approach. These were the small chalets not he one's shown on the brochure, which we did not have an issue with. The issue for us was that the water pump generator.... thudding away till 5 then was started up next morning at 6.30 till 7. Allso surely a bar of soap would be a better provision than two boiled sweets on the pillows
This was the only place too that did not even provide a bottle of water even though stated on the door in the room.

On a positive note evening entertainment was laid on at 20ram each, which goes to the vilage up keep, and a lovely area.
