Unspoilt landscapes, wildlife and historic culture abound in this wild, remote part of Africa. The Kunene River forms a natural boundary at Namibia's northern extremity, and here we find one of the country's most famous adventure centres - Kunene River Lodge. Sited 50km west of Ruacana Falls and 100km east of the spectacular Epupa Falls, Kunene River Lodge nestles beneath a beautiful canopy of indigenous trees stretching down to the river. The Lodge offers accommodation ranging from spacious deluxe air-conditioned rooms to rustic chalets and attractive campsites, all laid out in the tranquil shade of the Jackalberry and Leadwood trees. In addition to its idyllic setting, facilities and in-house activities, the Lodge also serves as an ideal gateway for those setting out to explore the rugged and beautiful Kaokoland region of Namibia to the north-west. "A Piece of Paradise" has been aptly used to describe Kunene River Lodge. Browse our website to get a taste of your Holiday of a Lifetime.

Kunene River Lodge Directions
If approaching Kunene River Lodge from the south via Opuwo, there is a good gravel road, passable most of the time. The journey of 135km takes approximately 3 hours, leading you through dramatic landscapes between the Ehomba and Zebra Mountains. East of KRL, the 60km road from Ruacana is tarred for the first 13km, then has a good gravel surface which makes for an easy drive. Although it is fine in the dry season, if the river floods, diversions are in place which demand 4 wheel drive. Once again a beautiful drive, this time along the river, is a just reward for your efforts. Coming from the west, there is a very good gravel road from Epupa Falls to Epembe, then from Epembe to KRL, together totalling 165km and requiring 3 - 4 hours travelling time. Both stretches are graded regularly - meaning their surfaces are frequently smoothed and re-contoured, so driving them is straightforward. The riverside road from Epupa to KRL is approximately 100km and is definitely for 4 x 4 vehicles only - preferably driven with at least two vehicles. This journey takes 8-10 hours.
