Ndhovu Safari Lodge

Approximately 20km southeast of the Divundu Bridge along road D3403 (C48), just behind the Popa Falls, is the turn-off to Ndhovu Safari Lodge, a peaceful riverine retreat situated on the western banks of the Okavango River, overlooking the well-known Caprivi Game Park (Bwabwata National Park).

In true safari tradition, Ndhovu Safari Lodge offers luxury tented accommodation, each tent being fully equipped with its own en-suite bathroom facilities. For the adventurous type, we offer a Rivertent on the water. Here you can feel real close to crocodiles, as well as the hippos. On its own small deck, you can either relax in the sun or try catching the famous tigerfish. In addition, we offer an exclusive camping area.

Experience nature at its best on an all-inclusive two or three day boat safari on the houseboat “Hippo“.

The charming thatched lapa overlooks the banks of the river, where elephants and hippo sometimes congregate, providing residents outstanding game and bird-viewing opportunities whilst enjoying sundowners at the bar and delicious three course meals.

Facilities offered at the lodge includes sundowner cruises, fishing excursions, village tours and game drives whilst the birdlife in the area will satisfy the most ardent bird-watcher – over 400 different species have been recorded in the surroundings. The Mahango Game reserve is a mere 2km away, offering excellent opportunities to view elephant, buffalo, red lechwe and sable antelope, to name a few, in typical riverine and swampland habitat.

Ndhovu is only ten minutes’ drive from the Bagani airstrip. By road it is 20km from Bagani Bridge (Divundu), 225km from Rundu and 340km from Katima Mulilo, an ideal stopover between Etosha and Victoria Falls.

Your hosts at Ndhovu Safari Lodge will do everything within their power to ensure that your stay at the safari lodge will be a truly memorable African bush experience.
