Very friendly owner and staff willing to help and gave us personal attention. Great location. Enjoyed the sunrise cruise on the river. Woken to a chorus of hippos, fortunately in the river! Will visit Caprivi Houseboat Safaris again.

Great people, good food and tranquil relaxed enviroment. Would definately go back again. Birding is unbelievable. If you are a birder, this is a fantastic place to go as there really are some specials . The boat trips are also a must.

We had a two day boat trip and our guide Allen was really good with birds that made our experience even better. We tried fishing, but water still too cold. The peacefulness at night when we camped on some island was the highlight for us...More

About
Description
A charming property with a lush garden located on the bank of the mighty Zambezi. 5 Rustic chalets and one tented room will entrance you and let you sleep peaceful and as close to nature, giving you an More unequaled rest. For the more adventurous we have 2 campsites with communal ablutions with hot water. Power, water and a light are provided on the sites. Boat cruises and fishing trips are offered locally. For an ultimate experience though, nothing beats the safari boats cruising on the Zambezi and even down to the Chobe river for an amazing game-viewing experience. Day-trips to Victoria Falls and Chobe National Park can also be arranged. Less
