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 were on a self-drive camping safari that was planned as a few days of camping with a night in a lodge every three nights or so. Divava Okavango was absolutely our favorite lodge of the trip. The staff was very welcoming, and allowed us to stay a bit past check out time since we didn't have far to drive... More

Largest lodge we stayed at during our Namibian trip with 20 chalets all facing the Kavango river however it still managed to offer a personal experience especially so that Paul (the owner) made himself very visible with all his guests. All the staff were welcoming and very happy to have a chat with the guests. Meals always good quality although... More

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.

The friendlyness of the staff in the restaurant differed very much. Some of them were very fríendly some seemed to be bored and were not service-oriented. The WL did not work at all and anfortunedly it was not possible to fx it during our stay.

We had high expectations of this place and were disappointed. The rooms are beautifully appointed and overlook the river which was at full capacity - so spectacular. However one of the couples travelling with us when they went to bed found hundreds of little bugs in their bedding even on and under their pillows. They were moved to another room... More

This a wonderful lodge along the Caprivi Strip. The individual chalets are absolutely beautiful with huge decks and views of the river that separates Namibia from Angola. After travelling through this part of old Africa it is quite a surprise to come across such an eloquent lodge. The dining areas and lounges are also very beautiful and the meals on... More

From the time of arrival until departure, all very good. The only down side was that it took ages to serve lunch on the first day. The rooms were fantastic, great views, spacious rooms, very roomy bathroom and if required an outside shower (there was also an inside shower). The evening meal and breakfast were excellent, highly recommend.

Family trip at Okavango, we stayed at Divava lodge, very good lodge, very clean, high standard and friendly people. We were lucky to find the owner there, very friendly with good customer service person. Won't mind staying there again. We manage to see the hippos and some animals, I.e. Giraffe, zebra, kudus, etc
