Mavinga Lodge | Ruacana



“Newly built with plenty to offer” would be a good tagline for this new jewel on the banks of the Cunene River. When I visited Mavinga Lodge in August 2017, the rooms were all finished so I could photograph those. Unfortunately the main area was not completed yet, but judging by the look of the rooms, I would say that guests had something to look forward to.

Like most of the lodges along the Cunene river, the area is green and luscious. For the weary traveler that does not want to stay in the hustle and bustle of Ruacana, this would be a welcome break. Bird watchers will also find Mavinga Lodge a good stop over. During our lunch break there I not only spotted a young Fish Eagle, but various kingfishers also made a quick appearance.

Cell Phone reception was not great, but who needs reception when the wild calls? The two plunge pools looked really inviting and I’m sure once the lodge is fully functional the bar is going to be a fantastic spot for a cold beer.

I have tried to find a website address, but to no avail. Looks like prospective guests will need to contact them either via the contact numbers below or book via
