Tambuti Lodge has 8 clean whitewashed en-suite chalets perched above the Okavango River 50m from the floodplain and a traditional African restaurant. Never flooded and easy access, conveniently located on a small road leading down to the river from the center of Rundu town. The ideal stop before heading to the deeper Kavango and Caprivi.

Friendly service and atmosphere and a truly unique cuisine. Rooms are fine. Location is right above the river and with the lush garden provides a relaxing vibe. However noise from the nearby Rundu "beach" can be a problem right through the night.

Hi Roving, good to hear from you. we thank you for visiting us. the noise from the rundu beach is not on a daily basis, currently the local authority is busy constructing a control gate that will stop people from going to the beach and make noise. We are all happy about the new development there. Please come back again in future. With love, Lizza

Namibia's roads are in an extremely good condition. The lodge is not far of the main road and really lush with beautifull rooms. Very close to nature and literally on the river. The roads in Botswana is also good if you are aiming there but in Zambia it is truly pathetic and almost undrivable.

"Ask for rooms in the front"
"Rooms that are more quiet from 6 to 8, but far from parking."
"Order food for dinner at the restaurant, so fresh, locally made !"
"Rooms facing Rundu Beach had lovely views of the garden."
"Guessing that rooms closest to reception (e.g., #5) have strongest wifi signal"
US$55 - US$71 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
