Susuwe Island Lodge offers visitors the opportunity to experience closely a wild and untouched island of Africa. Situated in northeastern Namibia, the island is in the remote Kwando River – a permanent water source that nourishes delicate ecosystems and sustains varied game and birdlife.
Susuwe Island Lodge is built to incorporate the riverine forest and the main complex has lofty canopy viewing decks overlooking savannahs, wetlands and ancient Kalahari woodlands. It also has a spacious lounge and dining areas, curio shop and small reference library.
Six brick and thatch suites equipped with double bathroom, bedroom, lounge and wooden viewing deck each with private plunge pool offer our visitors the opportunity to relax in the unique bush and island environment. Mosquito nets, overhead fans and hairdryers as well as generated electricity are provided.
There is abundant game in the areas and the volume of elephants to be seen on the Linyanti River at the southern point of the Mudumu National Park rivals that of Chobe. Lion, buffalo and hippo are often spotted, while in the more swampy areas, there is always a chance of spotting the rare sitatunga. The fauna and flora of the area is protected in three distinct national parks within the region – the Bwabwata, Mudumu and Mamili National Parks.
Activities on offer include birding, river cruises, guided walks, fishing, cultural excursions and scenic flights.
