Loved the open air shower, huge rooms, very quiet, good breakfast and dinner, very friendly staff, awesome views of the okavango river, must: hippo cruise in the afternoon. The staff tell me the Dutch owner is giving back to the community by building a school and kindergarden, not sure about this but would be great. One small suggestion for improvement:... More

The grounds and the rooms were extremely nice. The staff was very nice and helpful, but the manager (owner?) passed by a half dozen times without even acknowledging us and berated the staff in front of us. The guide for our game drive "E" was outstanding and we saw a great variety of wildlife.

We stayed mid June when the lodge was very quiet which may be why the staff, although charming, were not on full attentive mode - meals were slow to arrive which meant we ended up rushing manically to make the game drive times. The rooms were enormous, very clean and well thought out but were in need of basic maintenance.... More

My wife and I had an excellent three-night stay at the Divava Okavango Lodge. The rooms are luxurious individual chalets each with a private deck overlooking the river. The main lodge also overlooks the river, and we enjoyed excellent food, with dinners consisting of pre-starters, soup, starter, main course, and dessert, all beautifully prepared and presented. We had an excellent... More

Joseph our fishing Guide was very friendly and explained very well the local nature. The trainees at the Service should be faster or they need much more help from the trained service. We have enjoyed the stay on divava.

Divava was a very nice lodge. The rooms were beautiful, the couples massage was very romantic and the staff were very kind and helpful. The property is immaculate, complete with banana trees and rambunctious kittens. The game drive was a great way to start one of our days and we saw a bunch of different animals including the water buffalo... More

You don't have to do much at Divava, save just enjoy the caring attention of the friendly staff. But you'd be disappointed to miss out on a sunset cruise down the Okavango river amongst the hippos, otters and birdlife. A glass of wine when you land in the middle of poppa falls takes some beating too!

Divava is situated on the banks of the Okavango river. We visited Divava in December 2015 - a very hot month. We were delighted by the friendliness of the Divava staff - from our very first encounter with the security guard at the gate, to the girls at reception, the spa and even our guide on the boat trip...

We enjoyed our stay at Divava. We had a very nice room with lookout onto the Okavango. We were not very happy with the set menue, but it was not too bad. We prfer a buffet when you can eat what you like and have a bigger variety. Otherwise it was a pleasant stay and we will be back.
