Cascade Island Lodge (No Longer Operational)

Intricate floating walkways, surrounded by wild and powerful waterways, link an untouched Namibian cluster of islands in the heart of the Mambova Rapids. It’s ideal for intimate honeymoons, exclusive corporate getaways or adventure seekers looking for ultra-luxury accommodation.

Situated 70km upriver from the Victoria Falls – where white sand beaches and palm trees add to the romance – Cascade Island Lodge is a wonderfully secluded Chobe destination. Because of the limited number of suites, guests enjoy a very intimate and personalised experience with great service.




• Privacy and Exclusivity:
Ntwala is an incredibly private camp, boasting only four luxury suites, all with their own plunge pools.

• Tiger Fishing:
This region is world famous for the quality of its fly-fishing.

• Personalised Service:
The service experience at Ntwala is highly personalised and each suite has its own private guide and boat!

• Water Activities:
View the Chobe’s big game from the comfort of your guided mokoro (dug out canoe).
