“Pleasant stay at Zebra River lodge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

We stayed one night in Zebra River lodge and we really enjoyed it! The welcome was very warm and friendly by the staff and the owners of the lodge.
As it was our honeymoon, we also got a nice surpise during our dinner.
It is a nice lodge to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings in a relaxing atmosphere.
We hope to be back one day!

We spent one unforgettable night at Zebra River Lodge. The service is excellent and provides a great atmosphere. The food is of high standard, just delicious. We enjoyed the dinner on the veranda having a nice view to the waterhole. The rooms (we had the honeymoon suite) are of really high standard, made with lovely African details. The owners are nice and helpful people who were really committed to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We can highly recommend to go on the two hours hiking trip in the early morning. It is an impressing experience as you walk in the desert and climb rocks and mountains with a fantastic view. We will come back for sure!

We recently stayed at the Zebra River Lodge during a short Namibia trip through the Naukluft mountains, Sossusvlai, Namib Desert etc. Staying at the lodge was a bit of a coincidence but we did not regret it at all. Situated in the incredible Zebra river canyon, the lodge is a little paradise which caught us so much that we skipped the planned trip to the Sossusvlai and stayed there. Sunrise lying in bed, long exciting walks through canyon, cliffs and to a river spring. Great three course dinners watching Zebras, Kudus etc. at the nearby waterhole. You can even do horse riding there. Our very symphatical and attentive hosts as well as well-informed guides made our stay very pleasant. The lodge consists of an old farmhouse and a couple of little houses some of which were more or less merged with the rocks. The rock-plastered rooms are nicely decorated with old furniture - the right mix of comfort and charme without being over the top. I admit we did not go into the swimmingpool, the weather was too cold for that. At any rate, this place is a place not to miss. I really recommend going there either to spend a few days in solitude or with a lover or as part of a trip to the whole area. I certainly will come back to this little paradise.

Room Tip: Definately pick the house located the highest of all.

A very enjoyable stay, for only one night however. It would have been great to have spent more time there to enable us to have taken in more of the surrounds. The gardens are gorgeous, lots of birdlife, a very beautiful little 2 month old orphaned springbok, called Stokkies, was an absolute highlight. Ranger Willy is fabulous with a wide knowledge of the area and a fab send of humour.

The rooms are very comfortable and tastefully furnished and beautifully prepared with candles and mosquito net covering the beds by the wonderful staff, for a wonderful nights sleep.
We would definitely go back.
We had a great evening with the owners Geraldine and Louis, who are so hospitable and welcoming.

Room Tip: Try and book on the hillside

My group had a wonderful time at Zebra lodge - luxury accommodation and a genuine safari-type experience are seamlessly blended, such that you can see fantastic game and birds first thing in the morning, and last thing at night before rolling into bed. Easily one of our best experiences in Namibia, and all in a wonderful setting. Will definitely be back!
