Lianshulu Lodge & Bush Camp
|Mudumu Area, Namibia
Lianshulu Lodge in the East Caprivi overlooks the Kwando River and is situated on a private concession inside the Mudumu National Park. According to lodge management the future of this unique natural heritage will depend on the active involvement of the people who live in the East Caprivi.
Lianshulu Lodge has been instrumental in creating new opportunities and actively encourages projects that utilize indigenous products and knowledge on a sustainable basis. The staff and management are concerned about environmental education and promote wildlife conservation in is broadest sense, in order to create direct economic and social benefits to local communities. They were involved in setting up Lizauli Traditional Village that takes in hundreds of visitors from the surrounding lodges and directly benefits the local community.
Accommodation is offered in individually styled and furnished, reed, brick and thatch chalets, each with a private bathroom and secluded, outside deck. Generous spacing between units ensures complete privacy.
The lodge accommodates a maximum of twenty guests in ten alone-standing chalets. In addition there is one family unit, which can accommodate four persons.
The thatched dining, lounge and bar areas open onto wooden decks, affording views over the Kwando River and its flood plains. Wildlife can often be observed from these vantage points. A fireplace, library, curio shop and swimming pool are also available for guests.
