In keeping with the theme, the rustic and comfortable thatched chalets are built of local timber, grass and reeds. Adding to the natural ambience, each chalet has a beautiful wooden deck which overlooks the river. There is one double unit with two bedrooms, one 4 bed “fisherman’s” chalet, one 3 bed chalet and four 2 bed chalets, all with en-suite bathroom with shower. A recent addition is the “Owner Cottage” with two en-suite bedrooms and a central open-plan living area.
All chalets are provided with linen and towels and are fully serviced. Kitchens, which are equipped with gas refrigerators, gas cookers, tables, cutlery, crockery and basic cooking utensils are available for use by the residents of the chalets.
Please note that the chalets are self-catering, so you must bring all your requirements in terms of food. A professionally trained chef is generally available for hire on a daily basis if required. Please let us know in advance if you require the services of the chef.
Limited quantities of drinks and bottled water are available from our bar and you are welcome to bring your own if you wish. If you decide to extend your stay you can cross back into Namibia and get a re-supply at one of the many well stocked and modern super markets in Katima Mulilo.
Kabula is not connected to the national electricity grid with lighting in the chalets and kitchens being by means of our solar power system. Please bring your torches and if you have, gas lights, to use around the camp fire at night. As we say, “this is the Real Africa!”.
Please also note that the water in the taps is drawn directly from a fast-flowing section of the river and whilst suitable for most purposes we suggest it is boiled before being drunk. There are a few fresh water wells in the area however we cannot vouch for the quality of the water. We suggest therefore that you bring with you sufficient bottled drinking water for your stay.
Visitors are asked to remember that Kabula Lodge is not only situated “in the bush” but it is also situated on the banks of a large and mighty river, both of which present their own inherent risks. The Proprietors must therefore clearly state that guests and visitors visit Kabula Lodge, and use the facilities and equipment provided, entirely at their own risk. Visitors are kindly requested to read the indemnity notices included on this website (See “Rates and Bookings”) plus the notice regarding the hire of the barge and the boats.
