This lodge is absolutely stunning and it is located on the Okavango River. The food is of a very good quality (the eland steak, the butternut soup were so good!). It offers boat cruises on the river and from the rooms and restaurant you can also just sit and relax and do some bird watching. I was very lucky to... More

Divava Lodge & Spa is a beautyful place with a very lovely and friendly team. The situation is really special and the view over the Okavango river is really nice. We recommend to book the boat trip with sundoner on a little island at the popa falls .

Excellent and luxury lodge with incredible views to the Okavango river and very close to the Poppa Falls. The lodge is composed of very big and luxury rooms with an extraordinary bathroom and a private deck in front of the Okavango. The breakfast has everything you need, and we suggest to have dinner there as the food is of a... 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
