It is familiar ... nothing stands out but all together it is a feeling of welcome, pleasant good hearted place in the bush just outside Windhoek. Lovely sunsets having a beer or two. Want a quick lunch , simple food but delicious ... this is your stop. The accommodation and rooms or rather little bungalows are lovely. Far enough away...

We have stayed at River Crossing on several occasions and loved every visit. The rooms are beautifully situated with a great view. The restaurant is good and the "sundowner view" is worth it. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. If you are looking for a great stay outside Windhoek, this would be a good choice.

Stopped in Windhoek here for two nights before we set off on our Safari Drive. Individual huts/chalets and quite well laid out. Food while basic is very good. Set in the hillsides just outside Windhoek and a 20 minute drive from the airport.

My wife and I stayed at the lodge from 30 August until 2 September 2016 when I presented a lighting workshop to professionals in Namibia. From the moment that we arrived, we were greeted with amazing smiles, good humour and truly excellent service. Our cottage was very comfortable, well appointed, light and airy. It was very well cared for each...

This lodge do have very nice rooms with a view of the mountains surrounding Windhoek and is only a very short distance out of the city. You feel as if though you are in the bush with the city lights visible at night. Friendly and help full staff.

Located on the outskirts of Windhoek, on top of a hill over looking the lights of the capitol made for a great quiet sleep in a comfortable bed, above average size room. Although the layout was poor as the tv was off to the side and the outside paths were combination of dirt and paving making it uneven. Lighting was...

We stayed here for one night en route from safaris in Botswana to safaris in Namibia. The cottage was spacious and comfortable, but a bit dark and outdated in decor, I would imagine quite difficult to keep clean. The service and food were good, without being outstanding. The location is out of town - which has its advantages, but also...

Good service and friendly staff! Food was excellent and the atmosphere was perfect! Always an option for Sunday lunch or a saterday sundowners. Their sundowner platters are the delicious. They have a great sunset view over Windhoek ideal for sundowners.

We were so looking forward to a comfortable night having spent the last two weeks of our trip camping. This was our last night treat. Sadly, it didn't go well! We arrived around 2.30pm knowing we couldn't check in until after 2pm. We waited a good 10 minutes, unacknowledged by the barman who continued to make drinks with his back...

a great view on the city on one side, a great view on nature on the other side. Comfortable cottages. A perfect stay to start or to end your trip to Namibia. Only negative; they offer an evening diner (set menu) that is more expensive than what you can get elsewhere.
