|The comfortable Lianshulu Lodge is the only true wilderness lodge in the East Caprivi Strip of Namibia, a forgotten land largely untouched by the influence of man. |
Lianshulu Lodge lies on the banks of the Kwando River, 150km west of Katima Mulilo and south of the Kongola bridge. The lodge is situated on private concession within the 850 square km Mudumu National Park and lies just 55 km north of the Mamile National Park in the Linyanti swamps. This area is the Namibian equivalent of the Okavango Delta with lush floodplains, attractive islands and vast flowing rivers and quiet lagoons.
