Hippo Lodge

Hippo Lodge is a tented camp nestled amongst majestic Camelthorn, Marula and fig trees on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River – only 5 km east of Katima Mulilo. The setup of the lodge is dedicated to birders, nature and wildlife photographers or nature lovers. Our lodge features an outdoor pool, a bar and safe private parking.

Hippo Lodge offers different types of accommodation from five private thatched chalets to 2 rustic safari tents, all en-suite. The chalets are all located in different spots with exquisite views of the river. One of the chalets is a spacious self-catering villa, ideal for groups or big families. Most chalets feature mosquito nets, safe, storage space, braai facilities, shower and the honeymoon villa has a bathtub. Our safari tents have en-suite bathrooms with shower and comes with all the necessary amenities to make your stay comfortable even in the tent.

Our guests will encounter a relaxed atmosphere and have the opportunity to watch and photograph rare bird species like the Shalow’s Turaco or the African Finfoot right at the lodge. The Foto Club offers workshops in wildlife photography for beginners, amateur photographers and nature lovers. In small groups you will experience the fun of photographing birds and wildlife in the beauty of the African nature. Join us for a 5 days expedition with Water Camper Boats on the legendary Zambezi River to the Chobe River and experience herds of elephants crossing the river, antelopes on the floodplains as well as magnificent sunsets.
