About Tambuti Lodge

Tambuti Lodge is located in Rundu, the capital of the Kavango region. We are approximately 50 m from the river floodplain and 250 m from the Rundu town center. Tambuti is easily accessible and never flooded making it the ideal stopover before heading to the deeper Kavango and Caprivi Wild.

We have eight white-washed bungalows perched in a lush garden situated above the Kavango River. We have five Premium Bungalows with queen-size beds and en-suite bathrooms and three Premium Bungalows with twin beds and en-suite bathrooms. All bungalows have satellite TV, minibars, fans, telephones, and wireless Internet connectivity. Mosquito screens are fitted on the windows and mosquito nets hang over all beds.

We have a small restaurant specializing in traditional African food and drinks. This gives the lodge guests the opportunity to explore local flavours, add value to local products, and support the local communities providing the ingredients while considerably reducing the food miles. The lodge emphasizes its low local carbon footprint, using solar energy for all the lights and water heating, and enviro-flush septic tanks which do not connect to the under-capacitated municipal based treatments.

Conference Venues: The Conference Room can accommodate 30 people, projector, whiteboards, Wi-Fi is available

Romantic: We can make arrangements for honeymooners

Tambuti is set in a beautiful garden with large ensuite bedroom with crisp clean white linen on extremely comfortable bed. The restaurant food was excellent and the staff fantastic creating a very relaxed atmosphere for the weary traveler.

I stayed at Tambuti lodge on my journey to the Caprivi Strip and on the way back. The garden setting around the cottages is very pleasant and the lodge conveniently has a restaurant and the food is good.A couple of negatives: Don't rely on the TV working and the aircon isn't that powerful in the smaller cottages but OK. Breakfast, when I was there was supposed to start at 06.30amm but they weren't ready until 7.00amI would stay there again though

We had a lovely overnight stay on route from Etosha to the panhandle. Rooms were spacious, beautiful white linen, comfortable bed and great bath or shower with lots of hot water. Easy to find in town on the banks of the kavango river. Great view of the river from breakfast table. Staff very attentive and helpfully from the night watchman , reception and waitresses. Highlight was the local hibiscus jam and cordial. Lowlight was the construction work noise next door ( building luxury accommodation, hopefully will finish soon).  Happy to recommend.

Everything was fine staff, food, room, garden and so on. Just missed the fact you have to buy internet separately and it was not available all over the place._Bertil & Rose
