Stopped for one night here. And it is one of the best lodges in Namibia. Truly five stars, well if they would improve their meals it would be even better then 5. Positioned right on Okavango river, 15 min to Mahango NP, rooms are big, nice beds, huge bathroom with free standing bath tub, top notch gardens and pool. Really,... More

Although not part of our original travel plans, we unexpectedly found ourselves staying here for two nights. Having visited the rival lodges in the immediate area of Divava, this IS the most luxurious of them all. The rooms are spacious and beautiful - each having a beautiful balcony overlooking the river. Perhaps a couple of sun loungers would have been... More

Divava lodge was impressive! Stunning view, spacious rooms with an extra outdoor shower (a bonus during hot summer days), private, good service, excellent chef (on of the best in the whole of Namibia!). This is , for sure, the most luxurious lodge in Bagani. Unfortunately we didn't have time for spa, but the references from the guests were very good,... More

Divava Okavango Lodge and Spa is perfectly located close to the reknown Popa Falls in the Caprivi strip right on the banks of the impressive Okavango river. Nice sunset cruises with a typical African sundowner are offered to a small island at the foot of the falls. On top of that the lodge is only 8 km from the entrance... More

The location on the Okavango River is superb..... River Cruise well worth the time and cost. Lapa is very attractive and comfortable. Rooms are a very good size with a large balcony. Bathrooms are spacious and well thought out. An short, easy drive from the B8.

We spent two nights at Divava. The setting is excellent, rooms are well designed and spacious. Food and overall service was very good. Our stay at Divava was the highlight of a three week visit to Namibia.
