Very disappointed as the food was of the worst quality, dissaving on the type of meat cut. Rump/sirloin?! It was not a nice visit. WILL NOT GO AGAIN!!!! Food was cold, it took just to long and when it arrived it was cold and the meat was not what I ordered?! The bathroom facility was in poor maintenance and stinked!!!

Must say this is an awesome place love the view of the mountains. With the rain that fell a last week the greenery really compliments the scenery The set up and architecture of the olace really it could not have been better done. Not far from the city the locals can also come out for the day for a sundowner... More

The lodge does not appear anything like it does on the website and we were disappointed on arrival. We mentioned this to the receptionist but with no reaction. If we hadn't paid up in advance we'd have sought alternative accommodation. We'd booked a city facing room, but they were taking us elsewhere until we protested. The night view of the... More

A convenient stop over with spectacular setting, good food and awesome sunsets over Windhoek.Staff friendly and helpful with good rooms which you can either have sunrise or sunset. Great value for money and easy to find just outside the city

A bit shocked to see that not everyone is giving this place great reviews. We LOVED our 2-night visit at River Crossing Lodge! We arrived here after almost 24-hours of traveling from Sweden and were greeted with a welcome drink and super friendly staff. We got a lodge with comfortable beds, a nice view, AC, a mini bar, and nothing... More

Stayed a night before catching my flight to CPT. Although it's outside the Windhoek, it provides good view from each room and restaurant. You might need a car to move around the town. They have a restaurant that provides breakfast, lunch and dinner. Free Wi-Fi was excellent. If your chalet close to a leaky septic tank (room 6 for example),... More

After the long overnight flight from London, the accommodating reception at River Crossing was much appreciated as we overnighted before proceeding to Windhoek the next morning. Staff, facilities and service matched the stunning views towards Windhoek.

This lodge is not the best choice if you wish to be close to the airport. We had our Swakopmund guest house owner book it for us as we wanted accommodation near to the Hosea airport..Unfortunately, I did not read the website info but was given their location map from their website and going by this, the lodge appeared to...
