They do not necessarily represent the views of Expert Africa.
Great view of Angola from Hakusembe
A comfortable overnight stop to break a long journey. The rooms were spacious and well appointed, and the terrace of the restaurant with its view of Angola across the river was a good place to spend some time.
Everything about the lodge was pleasant without being spectacular, and for us it served its purpose well.
Very interesting place
We watched the sunset over the Kongola river. On the other side was Angola.
Lovely spot with great food; we wish we could have spent more time here, too.

Hakusembe Lodge review
A one night stopover, which turned out to be very pleasant and restful.
Simple chalet that lacked coffee making facilities, but fresh coffee was left on the porch in the morning.
It's amazing to see Angola across the river.Read more about the whole trip
Very good place to relax after long drive
Friendly staff, lovely location on the banks of the Okavango. Went to the Living Museum close by and enjoyed the Sundowner cruise on the river, though this no longer is free to guests staying 2 nights.
Food was buffet style largely with good choices.
Road off the B8 before Rundu is now the B10 and is fully tarred. Hakusembe is signposted off the B10 onto a gravel road.
The setting of the lodge is wonderful. The rooms overlook the river which boarders Angola and Namibia.
The rooms are very nice and have pretty decor throughout. The buffet dinner was very good and the decking was a nice setting in the evening. A very nice place to stay.
We took a boat tour the next morning where we saw lots of interesting birdlife and we even stepped foot in Angola!
Delightful lodge, wonderful staff
The drive up from Grootfontein was easy and interesting and our reception very warm. The central decking area gives great views and firepit on the beach provides a popular relaxing area. The restaurant staff, enthusiastically let by Freda the cook served excellent meals with choice and fresh ingredients.
The boat trips guided by Mateus were very enjoyable and informative. The manager and Yvonne in the shop were very helpful and told us about the Living Museum which we enjoyed visiting.
Our room was convenient, clean and comfortable and the tray of hot drinks on our verandah in the morning a nice surprise.
