Fabulous setting and a great host

The first night we were the only guests at the Lodge which meant that we felt as if we were staying in a totally private venue! Excellent. We really enjoyed relaxing on the observation deck with book and cold beers, watching the elephants across the river and hippos, of which there were many!

We had a great river cruise with Alfred, saw lots of hippos, and our sun-downer was made super special by a sudden arrival of a herd of elephants on the river bank where we were having our wine! We were served a delicious dinner, at a lovely set table on the massive veranda deck, and slept incredibly well!

The next day had an awesome drive with Dusty - quiet to begin with but again, the sun-downer stop by the Hippo Pool was made super special by another - this time even bigger - herd of elephants (we counted at least 30, with lots of little ones) which came over to drink from the river. And the massive croc which was trying to get to one of the little elephants but was effectively nearly stampeded by protective mum and aunts was a sight to see! Superb. Food on the second night was great again and also we would like to mention how nice, friendly, laid back and helpful Annette, the manager, was to us, as was Michael from the nearby Lianshulu Bush Camp.

All of the other staff were also very friendly! The swimming pool is also a great option for a bit of chilling out and cooling down.

Excellent location; good game drives

Very nice location inside Mudumu Park, by the river.

Extremely well appointed guest rooms in the gardens.

Enjoyed two game drives in the park.

If there is to be any minor criticism, the kitchen seemed to be trying a little too hard to over-complicate the food, but that is largely a matter of personal taste

Real Africa

An excellent lodge in a brilliant location.

We went on two sunset cruises and one game drive, all excellent.

We were right in the middle of a migration of 300 elephants as they crossed the river.

The managers and staff were all kind and thoughtful

We loved this lodge, another fabulous setting

The staff here are adorable and make a stay here very special. Animals wander in this camp which is magical.

Need two nights here to really appreciate it.

We lost some important documents and had to be returned to Windhoek. Expert Africa, the managers and staff pulled out all the stops to ensure this blip didn't spoil our fantastic holiday.

Disappointing Stay

Set in a wonderful location. We enjoyed afternoon tea sat out admiring the view and watching a golden tailed wood pecker and little bee eaters.

The room was okay, although due to just mosquito screens on some windows it was draughty and not very warm. The lack of power in the room was a set back, plus no hot water in the morning for a shower as the noisy room generator kicked in at 7am.

The evening meal was nothing special, and breakfast took an age to set up but was ok when it finally arrived.

Not one to repeat.

spectacular thatched lodge

This was a highlight.

Staff could not have been more welcoming or helpful. Food was excellent and the game drives were run at our convenience. We saw a great deal.

We were escorted from our cottage to the main building at night due to elephant, hippo and leopard in the camp.

Lianshulu Lodge review

An older camp but a great location right on the river.

The rooms are nice and clean but not luxurious. We had a great game drive and wonderful sunset drinks and were joined by a large herd of Elephants.

The food and service at the lodge were great. Our hosts could not be faulted and made you feel you were staying your favorite Aunties house.

You cannot charge cameras or phones etc in your rooms but at the main hall is a room where you can do this.
