The ideal location for visiting these nearby Parks, Mahangu Safari Lodge in Namibia is a comfortable choice of accommodation without all the frills
A new addition to the accommodation family of lodges in Namibia’s Caprivi Strip region, Mahangu Safari Lodge is found beside the Mahango and Bwabwata National Parks on the Mahangu River. Meaning ‘Food of the People’, this lodge and river is set amongst shady Jackalberry trees and wild date palms. Fish roam the waters of the picturesque river and the lodge is a meeting place for people passing through to Botswana’s Okavango Delta and Zimbabwe’s Victoria Falls.
The ideal location for visiting these nearby Parks, Mahangu Safari Lodge in Namibia is a comfortable choice of accommodation without all the frills – sit under the thatch in the lounge-bar-dining area and soak up the views of the Okavango River and Caprivi National Park. The fireplace provides warmth in winter and the swimming pool coolness in summer! Animal heads look down from the walls next to pictures of successful fishing trips.
Meals are served on two sunset decks on the river where birders and photographers will be in their element. Enjoy the lush garden with lovely green lawns under mature indigenous trees.
Accommodation in 10 en-suite double bed bungalows with thatched roofs and tiled floors or six luxury safari tents is reminiscent of Namibian hospitality. All units boast air-conditioning, mosquito nets, showers and tea and coffee stations.
Activities are centred around the water and the wonderful animal habitats: enjoy game drives into the Mahango National Park or the West Caprivi National Park where elephants, hippos, crocodiles and fish eagles are prominent.
The nearby Popa Falls is a scenic birdwatcher’s and photographer’s paradise. Mahango Safari Lodge offers seven boats for guided fishing trips on the Kavango River – catch a Tiger Fish or Bream!
