The Kunene River Lodge restaurant and deck from the river


A tough 68km drive from the Ruacana border post area in far north-west Namibia takes you through Himba Tribe territory to an oasis – the Kunene River Lodge. Owned and managed by Peter and Hillary Morgan it is exceptional. Grassed camp sites are side by side with luxury lodges. The reception, restaurant and deck are communal and all excursions and river cruises etc are open to all guests.

And upriver, Sue checking her pics!

Peter is acknowledged as a birding expert and his knowledge is encyclopedic. In fact, the KRL logo has ‘Home of the Cinderella Waxbill’ on it. Hillary marshalls her staff with a firm but happy hand and it shows. The gardens are immaculate, the wifi Hot Spot puts a huge smile on the ladies in our party, the ice cubes are plentiful, the ablution blocks are spotless and even the monkeys amused us. The cap it all a great swimming pool and lounging chairs.

For all of us, but particularly the ladies, the boxes were all ticked!

Our campsite BBQ – a design we are cribbing for France!


We travelled 6,500km in all. That’s a stack of diesel, especially with a Toyota Land Cruiser and a trailer. Mark kept his eye on everything – particularly keeping the Toyota full!


Happy, happy. Food, sun, relaxation and wi-fi.
