If you're tired of the service here in Namibia, do yourself and your sanity a favour and have a sundowner (or lunch, or dinner, or sleep over :)) at River Crossing!!! EVERYONE is so friendly and helpful, I swear I was dreaming :) Who can not be in a good mood with that amazing view anyway ;) They completely exceeded... More

Absolutely lovely setting. The accommodation is great. Enjoyed the restaurant very much. Only stayed there for one night but definitely the best night in Namibia for many a year. Hope to back soon for another great time.

Great place to stay. Clean rooms, good food and friendly staff. Fantastic view with Gemsbok and Duiker walking in the hills. Great for airport arrival or departure. The hotel does guided walks and also can arrange horse riding. Looking forward to going back.

This could be a great place to spend a night on arrival or just before you leave Namibia. It was certainly busy. The location is stunning and the staff very helpful (they arranged for 3 guys to wash my very dirty car for example). That is the limit of what is good. This place is being squeezed to get out...

Stayed for a few nights during my trip to Namibia. It is close to the airport, quiet with lovely views of the hills and city of Windhoek. The rooms are individual chalets with comfortable beds and most with a veranda where you can watch beautiful sunsets. The food was very good and the staff and the owners were very friendly... More

The lodge staff was very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were individual Chalets facing the beautiful view of the Windhoek Hill Country and the City. The linens were all... More

I regularly travel to Namibia and other Africa destinations . Always stay here. The most friendly staff ever, really. So so caring. The views are incredible. The rooms so organised. The chicken salad world class. The view from room, pool or verandah is just so calming and beautiful....puts me in a good mood every time.

Close to the airport, quiet and with lovely views over the hills from the bedrooms and the dining terrace, it was the perfect place to spend the first night after a long plane journey. It was clean, had comfortable beds, the food was reasonably good and the staff pleasant. Would definitely recommend it.

The location is perfect for arriving in Namibia, just 37 km from Hosea Kutako aiport. We utilised it as a stop over on arrival in Namibia and were dissappointed when they were fully booked for our outward journey. The lodge has amazing sunset views over windhoek and the staff are friendly and very efficient. They accommodated our requests to have... More

In addition to the exceptionally friendly staff, exquisite food, and breathtaking views of mountains and city, this is the prefect place for those visiting Windhoek or Namibia that want the benefits of a bush escape with easy access to the capital. The owners even take the time to greet and converse with their guests.
