Ntwala Island Lodge

Situated within the Mambova Rapids, 80 km upstream from the Victoria Falls where white sands and palm trees add to the romance, and belie the fact that this lodge is in Africa...Intricate floating walkways, surrounded by wild and powerful waterways, link an untouched Namibian cluster of islands in the heart of the Mambova Rapids.
