Directions to Shametu River Lodge & Campsite
Upon arriving in the Caprivi they came across this amazing space where the decided to start Shametu River Lodge.
With a lot of hard work and dedication the lodge was built and crafted to where it is today… making their dreams a reality.
In recent years Deon and Fritht Gerber joined forced with Louis and Amori, now running of the most amazing lodges in the Caprivi Area.
When driving to the Caprivi, most travellers assume that Divundu, Kavango East, is only a place for a quick stop-over on their way to game parks and fishing tales but what they do not realise is that they are driving thru one of Namibia’s most precious hidden gems.
Divundu is filled with the rich culture of the Kavango people – women draped with colourful cloth, Nguni cattle crossing the road every few meters. Children playing in the river and men on the wato’s catching dinner with nothing but an earthworm on a hand line. Game parks filled with wildlife.
The Kavango East has become a destination in its own, a place where you can spend at least a few days and you will not be bored especially if you book at the newly build Shametu River Lodge.
At Shametu River Lodge you will be experiencing the tranquillity of the Kavango River on your doorstep.
Just around the corner are two parks forming part of the Bwabwata National Park - Mahango Game Park and Buffalo Core Area, where you are guaranteed to see at least 2 of the big five and many more antelopes you don’t really get in the rest of Namibia.
For the birding enthusiasts you can spot the Wattled Crane, Pel’s Fishing Owl and African Skimmer to just name a few.
Tiger Fishing for the more adventurous, or treat yourself to a well-deserved massage or manicure in our mini spa.
Close enough to visit Tsodilo Hills in Botswana for the day - or just relax in the pool with a few of the calming river.
Wake up to the singing of the birds and roaring sound of the Poppa falls - what more can you ask for, you are on a well-deserved holiday, and you are staying at Shametu River Lodge.
You don’t need to book a chalet or luxury safari tent, even our campsites are considered as “glamping”. I know, you are curious now!
Come and enjoy true Namibian hospitality where owners Louis & Amori Gerber make you feel right at home.
As some may say: “At Shametu River Lodge you arrive as a guest and leave as a friend.”
