Owned by Global Food Services, Kaisosi River Lodge has always been on the east of Rundu, but has changed style over the years. It now competes with Omashare as a business person's stopover in Rundu. All the rooms are carpeted and well made, with high-quality fittings and direct-dial phones. The rooms are arranged in small, double-storey brick chalets and each has patio doors and a sitting area outside, overlooking the river. The standard rooms have a fan, toilet and shower, whilst the luxury rooms are larger, with AC and a combined bath and shower.
The main building includes the reception, bar and dining area – all under a grand thatched roof. Just outside are a couple of pools overlooking the river, and a large area of wooden decking for just relaxing. Perhaps as a remnant of its past, there's still a campsite here. Whilst Kaisosi is efficient and ideal as a business hotel, it lacks the atmosphere that most visitors want for a holiday stopover.
