Lianshulu Lodge is often referred to as being in a region which is the Namibian equivalent of the Okavango Delta - with verdant floodplains and a network of interwoven rivers, lagoons and islands. Lianshulu Lodge is one of the first private lodges to be built inside a Namibian National Park, namely Mudumu National Park in the Caprivi Strip.
Lianshulu Lodge is discreetly placed beneath a canopy of shady jackalberry and mangosteen trees, accommodating guests in nine twin-bedded rooms and one family room. Each room is individually styled and tastefully furnished, with en-suite bathroom and secluded veranda. The airy thatched dining, lounge and bar areas open onto spacious, split-level wooden decks, affording sweeping views over the Lianshulu Lagoon. Two fireplaces, scenic outlooks and a secluded swimming pool create idyllic places in which to relax and take in the tranquility of the natural surroundings.
Activities at Lianshulu Lodge include morning and sunset boat cruises and nature drives in the Mudumu National Park. An opportunity that cannot be missed is a visit to the Lizauli Traditional Village, a community tourism initiative that has recreated all the unique traditions and culture of the Namibian village. Visitors can learn to stamp a millet, discover ancient grain storage methods and transportation, see how blacksmiths hand-forge metal tools and knives, interact with the village traditional healer and experience traditional dancing.
Around Lianshulu Lodge guests can expect to see an assortment of typical savannah species. Mudumu National Park boasts herds of buffalo, zebra, wildebeest and waterbuck with elephant and hippo being particularly abundant. Predators are sometimes encountered and around 400 bird species have been recorded in the East Caprivi. Hippo, crocodiles and fish such as bream, tiger fish and catfish can be seen from the Lianshulu Lodge deck.
Lianshulu Lodge can be booked on an all inclusive basis or for self drivers with breakfast only. Children as of six years are welcomed here upon request.
