We had not planned to stay at the Divava Okavango Lodge but some unfortunate travel issues changed our plans. This ended up being very serendipity because the lodge is fantastic. The deck is a great place to sit and relax. We did an evening "sundowner" boat ride and saw hippos. The rooms are lovely, very romantic. We ate our meals... More

The view is not as good the most people say, because the trees take all the view away. it was terrible cold in the room. the terras is big but cold because the sun can't reach the terras. the kitchen is...

Thank you for your feedback. After a year of only positive reviews, it was a pity to receive a negative review (your partners review in Dutch). As I tried to explain, we are one of the only lodges who can arrange outdoor- and indoor diners. You visited our lodge in the coldest week of the year, so outdoor was indeed... More

The friendliest staff which are very helpful and who make every penny worth it. We had a fantastic stay at Divava. The rooms are magical and the food is perfect every time. Fishing was exciting and the trip to the Popa falls was very fun. Thank you very much.

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
