We stayed at this Lodge for two nights, it is set high above the river and is surrounded by bush, close by there is a heritage centre and the short walk to this is well worth taking. The bungalows all have balconies and overlook the river. Dinner is served on the terrace and is of excellent quality. I am vegetarian... More

Beautiful situated at the banks of the Okavango river. Friendly staf, clean and beautiful rooms. Food is fine. Rundu is not a nice city to go to. We stayed in the bungalow with a family of five. Was very nice.

Had a great time, large rooms, individual cabins. Dinner and sundowers was fun. Breakfast also was good. Hotel was clean, and right on the banks of the river. Guide on the river boat ride was also good.

We came there after dark so we were able to see this place in the morning. Very nice cabins, there was a coffee waiting for us on a balcony in front of our door. Food was very good, attaching picture of sweets after dinner. Great shop with souvenirs.

Food was excellent, service was spot on, the sunset over the Kavango was absolutely amazing, our room was facing the Kavango and very comfortable and luxurious. We tried... More
