Kalizo Lodge

Caprivi Strip - Namibia

Kalizo Lodge is situated only 40kms east of Katima Mulilo, 120kms from Kasane and only 250kms from the world famous Victoria Falls. The lush savannah area of the East Caprivi, is bordered by the Kwando, Linyanti, Chobe and the Zambezi Rivers, and is a region of mysterious swamps and never-ending flood plains. Wildlife in the Caprivi has recovered from years of poaching, and has superb conservation areas.

The region is teeming with game, and hippo, crocs and elephant can often be seen from the camp. This is an ideal place to stay for the self-catering tourist / family and it is also a suitable, yet exciting venue to host a conference, workshop or even a bush wedding! Guests of those who get hitched here, can tie empty cans and old boots to elephant's bottoms, to wish them luck as they proceed on their honeymoon!

An early morning snack of tea, coffee & rusks is on offer before guests head off on a busy day's schedule. On their return, a sumptuous brunch is awaiting and a 3 course dinner in the evening. The pool-side lapa is a favourite with guests, and the kids can play in the crystal clear pool, whilst mummy and daddy down a well-earned sundowner or two at the bar.

Accommodation at the lodge is either in chalets or self catering units.

  • Chalets: 7, single or double, rustic, thatched 2 bed, en-suite chalets, pitched right at the waters edge. Each suite has room for up to 2 extra beds. They offer peace and tranquility, with uninterrupted river and sunset views.
  • Self Catering Units: There are 4 & 6 bedded self catering units (with 2 and 3 rooms respectively). These are equipped with a kitchenette with basic cutlery, crockery, a 2 plate stove, fridge, towels and bed linen. All rooms have mosquito nets and plug-in points. Units are serviced once a day and electricity is supplied through a generator (Guests are asked to note that no electrical appliances over 700w may be used)

Activities include day, overnight or longer trips to The Okavango, Chobe National Park or Victoria Falls. A different, but nevertheless rewarding way to view game is by a small airplane flight. A river tour on the Sir Osis of the River, (max 10 people) is also recommended, and these cruises are tailor-made to suit individual requirements.

Buffalo, zebra, antelope, lion, giraffe, puku are also common visitors to the area, and sightings of sitatunga, red lechwe, spotted-necked otters, waterbuck, Roan antelope, oribi and African Wild Dog are also possible.

The more traditional self-drive or 4x4 guided tours, guided birding walks and visits to local villages and wood-carving factories can also be arranged as can the ever-popular sunset cruises and quad bikes excursions. Fishing tackle is on sale at their small shop.

Bird watching and photography are all year round pursuits, and a large breeding colony of carmine bee-eaters can be viewed from the river, from mid-August to late November. Between April and December, the magnificent African skimmers are a familiar sight, and a leisurely boat cruise will reveal the ever-present fish eagle, herons, kingfishers and coppery tailed coucals.

Kalizo has the best tiger and bream fishing on the river! The lodge's well-equipped boats, with rods and fishing tackle, not to mention their experienced guides, will accompany their guests to the best fishing locations on the river.

Kalizo Lodge. A great getaway for the whole family!
