Nunda River Lodge review

A very pretty location and attractive buildings and accommodation.

The bathrooms however are open both to the outside and to the bedroom area, allowing access to some big double bodied wasps. No sooner had they been dispatched, than more arrived and this particularly upset two of our party of four. Of course, this is Africa, and insects of various kinds are to be expected, but these were very large and very many.

The owner was most understanding and explained that the wasps slept in the early evening, only waking later the next morning, when temperatures rose. That is what happened, so we simply avoided the rooms after breakfast till late afternoon, which solved the problem. She did say that they were going to put insect netting in the open areas of the bathrooms and between bathrooms and bedrooms.

One of our rooms had a couple of fruit bats in the ceiling, which of course, were able to come and go too. We didn't mind those! Even their droppings on the floor next morning!

Very noisy hippos in the morning, as they seemed to like an early morning swim in the river nearby.

Porridge for breakfast! -Yes! Food very good.

Nunda River Lodge review

We stayed here twice - once on the way into Botswana and once on the way out. The location was excellent for our itinerary.

At last, when visiting Mahango National Park, we saw the first Elephants of our journey - 14 in all - and the only ones we saw in Namibia!! We liked ythis little reserve so much we visited it twice.

The lodge was comfortable and seemed well run with friendly and helpful staff and management.

High quality lodge

This was one of a number of quality lodges situated on the banks of the Okavango river. Because of the proximity of the other lodges and nearby villages, this did not feel as much like a wilderness experience as some of the other lodges we stayed at.

Our game tent was very comfortable, light and airy and the restaurant was very good. We took a cultural visit to the local village, accompanied by a lodge guide who lives in the village and this was absolutely fascinating.

Nunda Safari Lodge review

Very helpful reception. We were booked here as we couldn't get three nights at the Ndhovu Lodge and in hindsight we could have spent the full time at either lodge.

Service in the restaurant was rather relaxed and the large parties monopolised the attention of the serving staff. As we were on holiday this was of little concern.

If anyone intends to visit the Popa falls please check with the local contact prior to planning as the resort is undergoing renovation and was closed at our time of visit and it is not possible to visit by boat.

A beautiful spot on the river

Nunda lodge was a lovely spot, with lots of activity on the water.

The staff did everything very correctly and efficiently, but with no joy, which was unlike anywhere else we had been. A couple of times we did feel we were inconveniencing them.

Food was excellent.

Rooms were lovely, quite a long walk to the restaurant, past camping sites.

Gardens were beautiful, very well cared for.

Nunda Safari Lodge review

Another pleasant lodge, with good food and hospitality.

We didn't do any activities supplied by this lodge, as this was just an overnight stopover.

Nunda Safari Lodge review

The place was dark and gloomy, the chalets were full of bugs and the moskito nets were full of holes.We complained about the situation and no action was taken. The fising activity were a lot more expensive than the other lodges, but the chef gave good service by cooking our catch. It was not possible to lock the chalet in order to keep bugs out, so stay in the tents if you choose this place
