SUSUWE ISLAND LODGE SUFFERS DAMAGE DUE TO FIRE
During the night of Sunday, 02 August 2015 local fires severely damaged Susuwe Island Lodge.
Fortunately, we can advise that despite the intensity of the fire there has been no loss of life and no one was hurt.
The fire has destroyed nearly 70% of the property, which necessitates immediate closure of Susuwe Island Lodge to guests in order to undertake the re-building project required to restore everything to its former state.
Re-building will commence just as soon as possible, and it is anticipated the Susuwe Island Lodge will welcome guests once more by July 2016.
The Directors of the Caprivi Collection properties wish to advise that all confirmed bookings for Susuwe Island Lodge will be taken care of with hospitality at their sister property, Lianshulu Lodge, for the foreseeable future.
Susuwe Island Lodge offers guests the opportunity to closely experience a wild and untouched island of Africa. Situated in north-eastern Namibia, our island is on the remote Kwando River - a permanent water source which nourishes delicate ecosystems and sustains varied game and birdlife.
- Exclusive and private setting
- Romantic honeymoon getaway
- Superb big game viewing
- Outstanding birding
- Guided walks and sunset cruises

An African river, a spectacular canopy of indigenous trees and vistas of the Kalahari grasslands in the Bwabwata National Park are the inheritance of the animals that roam here.
Lofty canopy viewing decks set amongst tall riverine trees overlook endless savannahs and glistening lily-studded wetlands. A firepit is embraced by a spacious lounge area and eclectic African art. Relaxation, privacy and comfort are paramount at Susuwe. A mouth-watering aroma, the clink of silver against china, a wine glass filled - these are the joys of African alfresco dining. Fresh air sharpens whetted appetites and a picnic laid out amidst tall whispering grasses in unchartered territory illuminates the experience.
Six luxury suites, each with a wooden viewing platform and private plunge pool, are a haven of calm and respite, an airy dreaming space to recharge the senses. Professionally guided game drives are rewarded with special sightings of roaming elephant and buffalo, lechwe, lion, and leopard.
Sunrise or sunset river cruises, guided walks and 4x4 game drives offer even closer insight into the intrigue of the African bush. Our guests have the opportunity to merge unhurriedly with Africa's timeless evolution of hazy days and star-studded nights.
