This five star establishment, have a major shortage of staff, a shortage on service and the Lodge itself needs serious work to get the place cleaned up and back to a five star.

The room we had was truly amazing, gorgeous, enormous, with all the modern amenities (except TV maybe, can't remember), a very comfortable large bed, an indoor and an outside shower plus a claw-feet tub, even its own deck. It was furnished with expensive, beautiful, tasteful, African-lodge style furniture. The lodge outdoor pool is fairly small but very nicely arranged (patio... More

We stayed for 2 nights and really liked it here. The setting and the bungalows are beautiful, the food was good and staff really nice. They have a nice spa and the treatments were good but the same towels were used more than once and the beds for the treatments should be arranged differently to enjoy the view onto the... More

The allocation is the best on the best on the Okavango river - the rooms exceptional - food fairly good, It is a very private silent place and beautiful scenery you will not find anywhere else. The driving to muhango easy and lots to see.

I have stayed twice at this lodge now and definitely planning to go back there again. Staff are very friendly and professional. Service allover, rooms and at dinner are very good. A real retreat in the middle of nowhere. Rooms are very well laid out and romantic.

Only the tablecloths were sometimes a little dirty. A high price but compensated by the quality of the stay. Very good prices for the activities. Fantastic activities: fishing, buffalo park and overall the friendliness and helpfulness of all staff.

We had an excellent stay at Divava Lodge. Food, rooms and service were excellent! I enjoyed having a bath with a wonderful view over the Okavango. The room, bath and veranda are very spacious, well designed!

Probably one of the best lodges in Namibia! The rooms are actually suites with stunning views of the river. The food is excellent and staff are very friendly and helpful. This is a great place for a first or second honeymoon.

I have known about Divava for a while and because we live in the area I never thought to really go there. Until I was treated to go and enjoy a spa day. And man oh man was that not a real treat, from beginning to end. Friendly, helpful and professional staff as you walk in, to a warm welcome... More
