Revel in the riches of the Zambezi River
In the heart of southern Africa lies Namibia’s best-kept secret, the Zambezi Region. Zambezi Mubala Lodge is a secret river hideaway where water laps the shores of the expansive Zambezi, hippos laugh and the calls of fish eagles pierce through the air.
The Lodge pays tribute to the colours of the water, the surrounding riverine vegetation and the crystal skies, adopting the local Silozi name for colour - ‘Mubala’. A bird-lover’s dream, Zambezi Mubala Lodge is home to over 450 species of birds – a delight for bird lovers and photographers who can indulge in either a birding and photography tour or spend the last hours of the day on a sunset boat cruise. Those who are fishermen at heart might go on a fishing excursion on the Zambezi River where the catch-and-release of Tiger Fish is a popular activity.
In 2018 Gondwana Collection Namibia signed a joint venture agreement with the Sikunga Conservancy. The agreement ensures that a fair share of the financial benefits derived from Zambezi Mubala Lodge and Zambezi Mubala Camp is shared between the Traditional Authority, the local community and the Sikunga Conservancy. It also ensures that local employment and empowerment is nurtured.
