Caprivi Mutoya Lodge

Lodge and Campsite 24 km east of Katima Mulilo

Situated in a small riverine forest, Caprivi Mutoya Lodge & Campsite lies on the banks of a tranquil backwater lake of the Zambezi River and offers 5 chalets, 3 luxury tents and 12 campsites. Facilities on offer includes a bar and restaurant, swimming pool, curio shop, small lounge with books & games and WIFI. A large wooden deck offering stunning lake views is surrounding the restaurant.

Formerly know as Umvuvu Lodge, the property is now under new ownership and has undergone a major refurbishment.

Mutoya is the local name for “Waterberry Tree”, owing to the presence of these trees found along the shores of the lagoon. Surrounding the lodge are ancient Jackalberry Trees (African Ebony) as well as numerous other indigenous trees, which are home to squirrels, monkeys, a large variety of birds and other small species. Due to the quiet waters of the hippo pools there is also a profusion of water birds, which Caprivi is renowned for.


A variety of accommodations include en-suite self-catering tents, self-catering chalet, and a campsite. For those not wishing to cater, delicious meals are available in the restaurant. All accommodation offers lake views except for one of the chalets and the campsite, which are further back on the property, but situated under massive indigenous trees, offering plenty of shade on grassy areas.

Accommodation is as follows:

  • 12 campsites with shared ablutions, and communal laundry / kitchen sinks – all campsites have a BBQ, light and power plug.
  • 3 en-suite safari tents with a communal kitchen – twins (sleeps 2 each). These tents are quite close together making them ideal for groups and families.
  • 4 self-catering en-suite chalets – two family chalets (sleeps 4 each) and two twin chalets (sleeps 2 each).
  • 1 en-suite chalet – double (sleeps 2).

Access to backwater lake of the Zambezi


On offer are a variety of water activities.  Bicycles are available for guests wishing to explore the surrounding bush and forest areas.  Guests can row out on canoes to view crocodiles, hippos and the myriad of birds the lake has to offer.  Boat outings are also on offer for fishing, sundowners and bird viewing.  Fishing is done from either our boats on the lagoon, or organised for on the main Zambezi River through other lodges. The arrays of fish that can be caught include tiger fish, barbel, pike, a variety of bream and other lesser-known species.  Caprivi Mutoya supports catch and release.

For those only wanting to relax, nature watching can be done from the restaurant deck overlooking the water.  Nature walks can also be taken around the lodge and within the surrounding forests.  Trips to view Southern Africa’s largest Carmine Bee Eater’s colony can also be arranged.

Day tours can be organised to either Bwabwata National Park in Namibia, Chobe National Park in Botswana or Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe.
