We stayed here for one night during our trip from Etosha to Caprivi. Standard chalet. Wifi in restaurant area. Small swimming pool with lounge chairs. Diner not much choice and basic. Be aware off insects during rainy season!

We spent 3 wonderful days at Hakusemba. The lodge, garden, rooms and the restaurant are great with friendly staff. The kitchen made a fantastic effort to cater for us as vegetarians. Thanks for a lovely stay.

We couldn't possibly imagine the tranquil, beautiful accommodations that awaited us at the end of the bumpy dirt road. We laughed all the way from that main road until we arrived at the entrance to this amazing lodge. We were met with delicious cool beverages, and given the keys to our chalets while the ever helpful staff retrieved our luggage...

I am a fan of the Gondwana collection and their philosophy, and Hakusembe is one of their best. Our cottage on the river was private and large, with open vaulted ceilings and air-conditioning (Yessss! ) Very nostalgic smell of the thatched roofs at night. Beautifully decorated. Good leisurely river cruise, with sumptuous appetizers and bottomless champagne. This makes up in...

We stayed in chalet 15, which is close to the river. It was wonderful. Staff is friendly and informative. We enjoy the coffee delivered to the chalet at 6.00 am and listening to the birds Definitely worth a stop over

This lodge is really luxury. Everything is tastefully done. The rooms are beautiful and large with views of the river. The grounds are well groomed and have seating. They light a fire on the small riverside beach each night before dinner. The pool is also beautiful. Breakfast is delicious, with most items homemade using local ingredients. Locally smoked bacon is...

We have booked camping at Hakusembe, but arrived late and decided to stay in their rooms for the first night. The rooms are neat and well maintained, but nothing exceptional and certainly not worth the price. There is no mosquito netting on the widows, so you have to let the aircon run all the time. The included breakfast was pathetic...
