Accommodation rating: Superior
Set on the remote Birre Island in the Kwando River, Susuwe Island Lodge lies within the spectacular Bwabwata National Park in north-eastern Namibia. Tall riverine trees cast their shadow across the lodge during hot African summers, overlooking the fertile river flood plains. With just six personally attended suites with private plunge pools, you are assured of privacy and comfort. Susuwe Island Lodge offers opportunities for game viewing, and sightings can include large migrant herds of elephant and buffalo as well as sable and roan antelope, tsessebe, lechwe, and among the predators, lion, hyena and wild dog and the elusive leopard. Guests can enjoy game drives in 4x4 open vehicles in the National Park. Night drives give amazing insight into the African bush. Wonderful and informative guided walks are possible specifically to view game, but with the emphasis on learning about the environment. Boat trips and cruises on the Kwando River and back waters are preferable at sunset or sunrise - to game view, bird watch, fish, or just purely to relax. Unusual resident and migrant birds live in this area and the river, surrounding flood plains and savannahs offer special sightings such as wattled crane, racquet tailed rollers, wood owls and African crakes.
