Tambuti lodge

Bed & Breakfast in Rundu

Tambuti is a small Lodge located near Rundu town, beautifully perched above the Kavango River overlooking the floodplain. One of the rare lodges looking at the river without getting wet feet, thus we are also open during the flood season, all year round. We are part of the FOUR RIVERS ROUTE linking the north western Omulunga palm route and Etosha to the water ecosystems leading to the eastern Kavango Okavango pan handle in Namibia and the Okavango delta in Botswana as well as the Zambezi wetland paradise and Livingstone with the mighty Victoria Falls. Conveniently located on the small road leading down to the river from the center of Rundu town (400m from most Banks and shops).

Rundu

Rundu

Set aside the Okavango River in the Kavango Region you will find the regions main town, Rundu. The town falls on the Namibian border with Angola and is growing rapidly. In 2001 the population figure sat at almost 37 000 and in 2010 the figure is estimated to have grown to over 80,000. Once an area which relied on fishing and farming for its existence, the town's residents have started moving towards trade and tourism. The town is a popular stop over for travellers on the main B8 road and the Trans-Carprivi Highway which leads into the Caprivi Strip and eventually into Zambia.

On the B8 road from Grootfontein visitors will notice that the scenery starts to change. Small settlements of thatched rondavels spring up close to the road and the bushveld becomes denser and greener. The areas between these settlements are often scattered with vegetable patches and maize and millet fields. Traveling on this road, visitors should also take into consideration that there are often no fences up around properties and goats, sheep or cattle cross the road without warning.

The closer you get to Rundu the more woodcarvers you will find displaying their crafts alongside the road. The wood carvers are one of the town's highlights, and it is a craft has been handed down in families through the generations. The sales of these carvings is an important source of income for many families in the region, and visitors can watch the skilled craftsmen perform their art at the Mbungura Woodcarvers Co-operative. The Co-op is also another place where visitors can buy these hand crafted products.

Rundu is one of the gateways to the Caprivi and it is also the place to fill up the fuel tank and stock up on groceries as there are few if any places to stop and buy later on the 500 kilometer stretch of the Trans-Caprivi-Highway to Katima Mulilo.

One of the attracions in Rundu is the Shambyu Catholic Mission. The Mission was founded 30 km east of Rundu at the Okavango River in 1930 and is completely self-sufficient. Besides the living areas the mission has a school, numerous workshops, a hospital, vegetable gardens, stables for the cattle and a church at its centre. The missions often offered work, education and medical care and attracted many Kavango people from Angola. Shambyu has a museum on the history of the mission and of the Kavango people and displays a lovely collection of woodcarvings.

Why the $elect Stays initiative?

  1. Encourage and boost local tourism through making holidays more affordable.
    This is achieved by offering locals a 15% saving. The same 15% that would have left our shores had it been paid as commission to an International Booking site.
  2. Reduce the dependancy on large International Booking sites.
    This is achieved by building up a loyal following of verified users who we will market to on an exclusive and regular basis to maximise the opportunity.
  3. Ensure more money stays within local tourism to benefit us all.
    It is no secret that the large International Booking sites pay no or very little tax to South Africa or Namibia. By taking back a little more control we boost our own economy, and in particular, our local tourism. This is good for us all.
    Read this article on how the Australian holiday accommodation sector is suffering in the same way.
  4. Exclusive.
    Only listings on Stays can participate, which means less competition for bookings.
How it works for accommodation-seekers:

They use their member number when they send an enquiry.
The number is verified automatically BEFORE the enquiry is sent.
The property is notified on the enquiry that they are a verified member.
Property ensures that the quote includes a 15% saving.

Terms & Conditions

  1. The property (you) must offer the 15% saving to all verified members
  2. Verification is done automatically at the time of an enquiry. It is at the property’s discretion whether to offer the saving for a telephonic enquiry. (As you have no means to verify the membership number, it is advisable to get them to do a formal enquiry so they can be verified).
  3. If the property is currently running a "Special" greater than 15% then the "Special" price will apply. (No further savings needs to be offered). EXCEPT in the case where the "Special" is lower than 15%. In that case the 15% will apply.
    Example: A property offering a 10% discount, must offer an additional 5% discount to valid members - so they get a total 15% saving.
  4. The property must offer valid members the saving all year round. (Properties that pick and chose in which seasons to participate run the risk of being removed from the programme completely. Allowing selective participation defeats the integrity of this initiative).
  5. The property must not inflate the price before the 15% is applied. Prices displayed should be the rack rate. (The official or advertised price of a room).
  6. The property must honour any bookings made while the property was participating as a $elect Stays property.
  7. The property must honour the agreement and the spirit in which the initiative is designed to benefit local tourism.
