Susuwe Island Lodge

The meandering Kwando River, an expansive tree canopy, and spectacular wildlife viewing combine to create the perfect African safari getaway. Ideally located on the Kwando River in Bwabwata National Park, Susuwe Island Lodge is one of northeastern Namibia’s most cherished destinations.

Providing spectacular views from its double level viewing deck, the main complex offers a variety of amenities. A lounge and bar, along with a dining area with individual tables, serves a delectable variety of food and drinks. Further enhancing the elegant safari experience, Susuwe Island Lodge is pleased to also offer a small reference library, curio shop, and fire pit, around which lively conversations take place.

Six double or twin suites offer the ultimate in comfort, luxury, and privacy. With a wooden deck overlooking the Kwando River, each suite also boasts a lounge area, private plunge pool, en-suite bathroom with a bay window, bath, shower, ceiling fans, gauze screen doors, mosquito netting, small safe, and more.

Game drives into Bwabwata National Park yield a wealth of stunning wildlife viewing. Large herds of elephants as well as buffalo, hippo, many antelope species, hyena, lion, and leopard inhabit the area. And guests thrill to see these magnificent creatures thriving in their natural habitat.

River activities are a highlight of any stay at Susuwe Island Lodge. Sunrise and sunset river cruises on the Kwando River allow guests to view game, bird-watch, fish, or just relax. Separate birdwatching trips can be arranged so that guests can attempt to spot some of the rarer species such as wattled crane, racquet-tailed rollers, wood owls, and African crakes.

An afternoon visit to “Horseshoe Bend” can provide the unforgettable opportunity to witness vast elephant herds. In the dry season, over 800 elephants have been seen at one time! Another popular activity is fishing for the tiger fish, nembwe, tilapia, and catfish that make their home in the Kwando River.
