Lodge with Camper-boats in the Zambezi Region (formerly Caprivi)

Caprivi Houseboat Safaris t/a Camp Turaco, on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River just outside Katima Mulilo, cools you down with a lush garden oasis after your travels through the heat of the day.
Waterberry, Marula, Jackalberry, Terminalia, Mahogany and Raintrees amongst it's tree population, provide shade for this paradise for guests and birds alike. The green garden welcomes you and soothes your soul.
The rustic ambience invites you to relax and feel at home and close to nature. From the deck Zambia can be viewed and sometimes a honking hippo or menacing crocodile floats by. Whistling otters are a really special sight and birders hearts will flutter at the paddling presence of an African Finfoot.

  • We stayed with our family for one night at Caprivi Houseboat Safaris and we absolutely enjoyed our time. The lodge is very rustic and down-to-earth (but very clean) and lovely situated at the Zambezi river with a great view from your bed into the green. Food was excellent.

  • This is the ideal spot for anyone who would like to experience camping in Africa but would still like a few home comforts. The chalets have three reed walls and a thatched roof. The front is totally open looking out over the Zambezi River. When the river is high the water actually reaches to under the chalets.
