Situated in the heart of the Caprivi Strip, and set in Namibia's Mudumu National Park is Susuwe Island Lodge, embedded in a lush, riverine forest, on an island, in the Kwando River. Susuwe Island Lodge offers visitors the opportunity to experience closely a wild and untouched island of Africa.
The main complex has been assembled as a series of multi-level decks, in the confines of shady Leadwood and Mangosteen trees. There is a central fire pit, (giving guests ample opportunity to swap travel and bush stories with fellow explorers and trailblazers,) a spacious lounge and dining areas, a curio shop and a small reference library, with books about the region and it's inhabitants. Power to the lodge is supplied by a generator.
Susuwe Island Lodge's chefs treat it's guests to fine dining, with a variety of freshly prepared meals. Their excellent cuisine is served al-fresco style, in a number of intimate and interesting settings, such as under a baobab tree, or even a picnic, on a secluded and private spot, somewhere on the island. Special dietary requirements can be catered for with prior arrangement.
Situated in north-eastern Namibia, our island is in the remote Kwando River - a permanent water source which nourishes delicate ecosystems and sustains varied game and birdlife.
Relaxation, privacy and comfort are paramount here. Susuwe Island Lodge is built to incorporate the riverine forest - the main complex has lofty canopy viewing decks overlooking endless savannahs, glistening lily-studded wetlands and ancient Kalahari woodlands, as well as a firepit, spacious lounge and dining areas, curio shop and small reference library.
The bar staff have a fully-stocked, comprehensive range of South African wines and spirits awaiting their customers, an impressive feat for such a remote destination! Lunch time tipples, sundowners and night caps cannot be ignored for long!
Susuwe Island Lodge Accommodation
Game drives in open 4x4 vehicles in the Bwabwata National Park
The thatched roofs help keep the interior of the rooms lovely and cool. There are only 6 personally attended suites, all overlooking the Kwando River. The spacious (brick and thatch) suites, are each equipped with a lounge, double bathroom, (with a window-height tub) and a bedroom, with mosquito net, overhead fan and hairdryer. A shady corner on the wooden viewing deck, is an ideal position for a quiet read or siesta. Guests can also cool off from the hot afternoon sun, in their very own private plunge pool.
The Susuwe concession, and the adjacent Kwando area, is one of the largest unfenced wilderness areas in Southern Africa. Game drives are in open 4x4 vehicles in the Bwabwata National Park. Sightings can include vast herds of roaming elephant and buffalo, lion, leopard, hippo, lechwe, puke, sable and roan.
Casually drifting pontoons are steered up and down the river for birdwatching and sunset cruises and night drives and guided walks can also be organized.
Susuwe Island Lodge can organize specialized occasions, such as honeymoons, anniversaries and birthdays. Candlelit moonlight dinners on a river sandbank, or private deck or a champagne brunch at the historical baobab, can also be arranged.
Indeed, the volume of elephants to be seen on the Linyanti River at the southern point of the Mudumu National Park rivals that of Chobe and lion, buffalo and hippo often spotted, while in the more swampy areas, there is always a chance of 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
