About Kunene River Lodge

Kunene River Lodge began life as an impromptu rest camp on the long, arduous 4x4 trail from Epupa to Ruacana. In 2005, Pete and Hillary Morgan fell in love with the lodge, took it over, and have since devoted themselves to improving its facilities and reputation. White-water rafting activities contribute significantly to the success it now enjoys as one of the most desirable tourist destinations in this remote corner of Namibia.

In addition to its idyllic setting, facilities and in-house activities, the lodge also serves as an ideal gateway for those setting out to explore the rugged and beautiful Kaokoland region of Namibia to the northwest; indeed many ardent 4x4 drivers enjoy tackling the notorious river road to Epupa Falls.

But there is also a more peaceful and tranquil side to Kunene River Lodge, and birding enthusiasts find a wide range of endemic and visiting species to enthral them during their stay, including the diminutive and secretive Cinderella Waxbill whose range is limited to just a short stretch of the Kunene River.

In conjunction with the local conservancy, of which the lodge is a prominent member, the World Wildlife Fund has re-introduced a limited range of mammals to the region and some might be lucky enough to spot kudu, zebra, black-faced impala or giraffe while driving in the area.

              It was superb and well worth the effort of getting to and from it in an ordinary sedan - something of a 'hairy' experience.
