Shametu River Lodge


Louis and Amori Gerber embarked on an amazing journey a couple of years ago where they were looking for a retirement home to buy in the beautiful surroundings of the Caprivi. Upon arriving in the Caprivi, they came across this amazing space where they 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. 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. The accommodation embraces fifteen generously spaced, elegantly furnished chalets, each with private bathroom, coffee bar and seating area. At Shametu River Lodge you will be experiencing the tranquillity of the Kavango River on your doorstep.
