Lianshulu Lodge Review

This lovely lodge, which sprawls under huge jackalberry and mangosteen trees along the banks of the Kwando River, bordering Botswana, was one of the first private lodges to be built inside a national park—Mudumu National Park. Considered for many years one of the best lodges in Namibia, it offers a splendid water-wilderness experience—from chugging down the Kwando in a double-decker pontoon, sipping sundowners as the boat dodges hippos and crocs, to tiger-fishing, game cruises, and superb birding with more than 400 recorded species. A night cruise on the river is particularly exciting. Accommodation is in beautiful and spacious reed, brick, and thatch units (en-suite); the food is outstanding; and the personal service memorable. You can visit the nearby Lizauli traditional village, built and managed by the local community. Because an immigration official lives at the lodge, you can easily cross into Botswana.
