Outside WHK, on top a hill. Great views to WHK at night. Amazing views towards the mountains in morning. Rooms are solid, clean & fresh and quite large. Lovely stoep to sit and take in the bush. Traditional Namibian/African experience. Decent B/fast. Would always go back again

We stayed here on the first and last nights of our trip. It is very handy from the airport, is only ten mins from a great shopping mall, and is a very pleasant place to stay. The staff were very friendly and attentive, the food was lovely. Nice decking area to sit and watch the sun go down and have... More

We stayed in this hotel on our last night in Namibia. It is very conveniently located for the airport, but not so much for the city centre. We didn't attempt to, but I don't think you'd be able to walk. Also finding the entrance off the main road can be a bit tricky, so drive slowly as you approach. The... More

Visited this lodge on a business trip for a couple of days, very beautiful setting. Staff need a bit more extra training, made quite a few mistakes with orders for the group. TV's in room only have three channels, one local and one international news channel. Lodge have great potential to be great.

Convenient to airport and to Windhoek - a good place for your first or last night. A warm welcome, good food, relaxing atmosphere, great views and comfortable, well equipped chalets. Service is friendly, relaxed and efficient - very easy to feel "at home". Happy to make it my "gateway" on future trips. Just a word of advice - easy to... More

On a recent trip to Namibia we spent two nights at River Crossing which is just outside of Windhoek center. Quite a rough road to the hotel which is in a game park so all part of the experience. Chalet was comfortable and had a modern bathroom which had good quality soaps etc. Supper that night was excellent and service... More

This lodge is situated between the airport and the city centre of windhoek. Only a few minutes drive to Maerua mall. ( Checkers,Mr Price,...) Recommended restaurant nearby = Am Weinberg. The chalets are modern and with all the comfort one needs. Difficult to get hot water out of the shower.Staff friendly but a little chaotic.

The location between the airport and windhoek makes it ideal for a busy or quick business trip - I have stayed there many times and have not been disappointed. The nights are unbelievably dark and quiet - only the occasional jackal call. The chalets are big with a modern bathroom, and quite warm enough in the chilly winters. The lodge... More

I run a lot of seminars all over the world, but this was probably my nicest seminar location ever. A real heaven. You wouldn't believe it's only a few minutes from Windhoek downtown, so it's really convenient for people to come up just for the day. Yet it has this atmosphere of being remote out in the bush, overlooking the... More

I've visited River Crossing two years in a row now. Absolutely love this place for a get-away near/in Windhoek. Here is why I love it! * Fantastic location - literally 10km from City Centre. * You leave Windhoek behind yet you can see it. * Beautiful views, landscape and Lodge. * Beautiful rooms: spacious; great views; private; lovely bathrooms; good...
