Very nice house and located right on the river bank; Boat excursions in the morning or evening are highly recommended; you spend hours almost alone on the river and see many animals; the guide is very good and explains a lot; The lodge operators are very pleasant and always ready to answer all questions; the excursion to the nearby national park was also memorable and highly recommended; The food is great and the sunset riverside bar is sensational; The hippo is currently living in the water right in front of the lodge! All in all, very pleasant and recommended at any time.
The location, hospitality and food at this forest camp was amazing. The lodge is simple but well equipped, surrounded by nature, with a homely atmosphere.
very hard to find, look south of the gas station for a rather small sign (to the right) with a canoe on it. The GPS data on booking is incorrect!! The accommodation was very good, very tidy family bungalow right on the water. We were the only ones in the whole camp.
Unfortunately, the P/L ratio is not correct: for 80-100 euros it would be great, so this is a camp in the middle of nowhere, but costs 156 - too much. I would come, but not for money. Aaaber - it is just optimally located between Chobe and Tsumeb. However: too expensive.
Great view of the river from our accommodation. All kitchen amenities.
175 euros for a family room with walls made of camping tarps and plywood and shabby furniture...too expensive. And a very noisy character (frogs...). It is true that we are at the water's edge...
well-equipped tents stand right on the water, the Kwando arm, the suggested boat trip is highly recommended: you will see many animals; the variety of birds is also fantastic (different types of kingfishers, bee-eaters, etc.). We were the only guests at dinner and a huge buffet was prepared for us. Very nice hosts willing to provide information.
If you want to see nature up close, this is the place to be, but you'll have to contend with flying foxes that keep you awake at night. You sit right by the river while you eat and you can even watch the hippos.
Since there were almost no guests, there was only 1 dish for dinner. In stationary tents during the daytime, it was not allowed to use a hairdryer, otherwise there was a risk of power failure.
Accommodation is easy to find. The owners are both very friendly and hardworking. Breakfast was very good, eggs were freshly cooked to order. Dinner was a buffet-style bobotie and mallow pudding for dessert.
The object is located in the middle of the forest on the banks of the river. There are hippos and crocodiles, but we didn't see them and didn't go boating. The cottage is brick, but with a tarpaulin on the side. Since it has no windows, only a glass door, it is very dark. Unfortunately, there is no mosquito door here, so you need to make sure that it is always locked. Unfortunately our bedding was completely dirty, you have to get a new one here. For the price we were expecting something better, unfortunately this was the worst accommodation of our entire trip.
The camp is beautifully located in a well-maintained natural garden in the floodplain of the Kwando River (during the rainy season we were practically at the water's edge). You can relax in the plunge pool during the day and watch the sun set on the terrace in the evening. Tip: Take in the starry sky after sunset on the sand deck by the fire basket with a glass of wine! The bar is very well stocked. Breakfast and/or dinner can be ordered 24 hours in advance. Both were very tasty and filled us up :-) If you prefer to take care of yourself (camping and cabins): be sure to buy something in advance, as the infrastructure is not the best in Kongol. Cabins are currently being refurbished so we can only appreciate the "old" version: Half tarpaulin, half brick and just furnished - we're not real tourists but it served the purpose of an overnight stay. The hosts Veronica and Henny are very friendly, welcoming and make sure everything goes well - we loved their hospitality!
The cabins were too basic for our taste - but tastes vary.
Very pleasant hosts. Dinner and breakfast were ok. The best thing is a boat ride on the Kwando River. This is a great adventure, very close to nature.
Rooms could do with refurbishment
Due to our complaints about the unacceptable condition of the room, the manager agreed to cancel the second night free of charge (the wife would have insisted on paying). Dinner was simple but very good.
Despite the requirement - no hot water in the shower in the evening and in the morning. Sagging beds. There is only 1 socket in the room so the fan and the 2nd bedside lamp didn't work. Later, cables were laid throughout the premises.
A warm welcome in a fabulous location. The friendliness of the hosts, the magnificent sunset, the growling of hippos and the purity of the sky. The accommodation was very clean and very comfortable, all for very good value for money.
Owners, food, excursions, riverside location is a dream. A little gem on the Gwando River!
A room made of plywood and stitched tarps of very poor quality and poor finishes... for 110€ per night...
The lodge operator was very open minded, explained a lot and supported us. The food was very good as was the location. Ultimately, we owe the operator Henny Lodge to us for being able to leave southern Africa at the last moment before the border closure - Corona !!!
An easily accessible camp with well-equipped cabins in green surroundings, located directly on the Cavando tributary. Breakfast and dinner (à la carte) could be taken in the central building, inexpensive and tasty. There was a small bar on the terrace, and the operators, Henny and Veronica Köhne, were very concerned about our welfare, as was their assistant Nurette.
The internet connection was interrupted frequently and the data transfer rate was slow.
The place is beautiful. I especially liked the friendly staff, bar and breakfast.
Jungle camp! On booking we saw a so called chalet with a stone wall and a typical thatched roof! It would be very good. We lived in a brick camp with tent windows and a wonderful water heater at night. We really enjoyed! Alone with the great and courteous Lola and her wonderful sons! You felt welcome and familiar! Crazy sunset, indescribable in a wonderful landscape! The food was very good and loving! Alone we would like to be in the chalet as booked. But this could not interfere with a wonderful rest!
Smell. Something must have been allowed into the room so that the parasites did not come. Here we were a little touchy, but ... it's not forever! We consumed a lot, the bill, of course, was high, unfortunately, everything was indicated only in the form of the corresponding amount, without a breakdown. Unfortunately, I noticed this later! However, I am very confident that everything was correct. However, this will be advice on how to avoid future problems.
It was very idyllic and quiet. We didn't need anything. Dinner was outstanding! We could hear but not see the hippos. Brown water from the tap annoyed us, but of course it is difficult to change, otherwise the owners would have done it long ago. Because everything else is absolutely perfect. We went to Mudumu National Park and returned in the evening as it is very close.
camp size. Location 5 bush chalets with small kitchen (outside) and great countryside views (unfortunately there was no water in the Kwando side arm during our stay in December due to drought). In the evening you could sit under the starry sky. Chalet 5 is located in a very quiet location on the outskirts of the camp. Mosquito net was available. Great sunset from the bar terrace. Dinner is available upon reservation. We liked that the eco-camp is powered by solar energy. We found the plunge pool to be chilly including pool towels great in the heat. Daily housekeeping is also positive. Henny gives good advice. He was very helpful and helped us with tire changes! Thanks again for this! The camp is perfect for one night.
Kemp Mukolo deducted the booking money prior to arrival, which we didn't think was correct. So we were completely inflexible and couldn't even rebook or leave early if we wanted as we weren't completely satisfied. Unfortunately, Veronica did not meet us, even after a second request through booking.com. This is very disappointing! That's why I would only book there directly by phone. We think the accommodation is too expensive compared to other camps and lodges we had during our trip to Namibia. Basic chalet equipment and kitchen utensils for the price. Bush's chalet had no soap, no tea, no coffee. Check-out later than 10:00 is charged (additional note). Bed linen was partially discolored. Hot (!) tap water seemed brownish. Unfortunately there was no fan as the camp is solar powered.
Location, staff, breakfast
Very nice hosts, good dinner and breakfast
water supply disruption. Donks for hot water.
Camping away from everything to relax and enjoy nature and silence Very friendly staff who prepared dinner for us despite not ordering it. Very detailed explanations about options for visiting the area with very practical advice on where to go and where not to go. Very clean cabin with comfortable beds and extra kitchen
The Google map doesn't list the site correctly and it's very easy to get lost if one gets confused. It is not clearly stated that you have to bring your own food or make a dinner reservation.
A feature of a family cottage is the feeling that it is part of the nature around it. Veranda overlooking the river and sunset, beautiful. The friendliness of the family that runs this place and the helpfulness of the advice they gave us for visiting Chobe.
The mattress on the double bed... not very comfortable. But we're in Africa and I don't think it's a big problem. I'm only pointing this out as a possible suggestion/improvement.
Camp Mukolo is located in a quiet and idyllic location. Comfortable beds, but unfortunately the mosquito nets are too small. The kitchen is adequately stocked, but unfortunately the dishes from previous guests were not properly washed (still greasy). Nice hosts who gave us tips for Mudumo NP, good wifi, good value for money. We are very happy to recommend this accommodation.
The location was excellent. The breakfast is delicious and more than enough. Dinner was also very well taken care of. The hosts were very friendly.
The welcome at this complex was as good as the excellent dinner and breakfast. what we had.
It's a bit far from everything and a bit rustic but our short stay didn't let us know what the activities were, probably due to lack of water...
The location is near the river and very quiet. Very good food and breakfast
The loggia is poorly insulated. It was cold at night despite the blankets.
The village camp in the middle of the bush is a great place to enjoy nature in peace and quiet. Very personally managed accommodation with good value for money. A boat trip is recommended - we were alone on Kwando for 3 hours and were able to observe the animals very well (especially the birds, crocodiles and hippos).
This forest camp is a dream. The owners looked after us very well and made our overnight stay in the bush unforgettable. Booking half board is highly recommended. We were there for 2 days. It is ideal as a base for a guided tour of Mudumu Park.
A very nice couple of owners who devote a lot of time to guests. Great location. Great boat tours with great wildlife watching and photo opportunities. Nice bar and delicious food. A simple but functionally furnished tent. We would like to return.
Beautiful house on the reed river. Chalets are large enough, practically furnished (bathroom, kitchen, refrigerator). Luxurious breakfast, 3-course dinner upon reservation. Nice staff, dedicated management. Spacious area with a bar and a view of the river (it is necessary to book a boat tour - Behemoths).
Good location right on Kwando. Beautiful bungalows in the shade of the forest. The bungalows are pretty good for a very reasonable price. Henny and Veronica, the owners, are very nice and the staff are friendly and helpful. The breakfast is also quite good and if you want you can also get a delicious dinner. All in all, a beautiful natural place to feel good without too much luxury. Boating on the Kwando River with Henny is a special experience, but it can also be a little adventurous because the hippos don't show much enthusiasm when you approach them. It's not without risk, as these heavyweights can be very aggressive in expressing their displeasure. It was good for us, but that's not always the case...
Proximity to nature, very hardworking hosts, good dinner.
