“A dreamy stay!”
We were a large group of twenty adults that stayed here for two days. Beautiful lodge right on the river’s edge, excellent service from the cleaner’s to the waiters, to the office and spa staff. Beautifully laid tables every evening, attentive service and wonderful food (five-course dinner). Thank you, chef Hendrik! Nothing was too much to ask, and river trips and an excursion to the game reserve were organised at short notice.

“Don’t stay anywhere else on the Caprivi strip”
Loved this place. Hippos in the river near the restaurant. Rooms lovely with outdoor showers and frangipanis in the trees. Food was very nice. Loved the decor of the bar/dining area. Expected to be eaten alive by mosquitoes, they were not bad here either.

“Lovely lodge”
Amazing location, a must-do river cruise with a very knowledgeable captain. Very attentive and helpful, pleasant staff. A must stay lodge. Room was fantastic with great views. An excellent value stopover on a journey along the Caprivi strip.

“On the Okavango River”
Beautiful resort with great views of the Okavango River. We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed a river cruise with sundowners on an island near Popa Falls. A lot of hippos, elephants, numerous birds, and a beautiful sunset near the falls. Very enjoyable. The next day our game drive to Mahangu National Park was fun. Lots of ostriches and monkeys and also enjoyed a huge baobab tree. At the resort, the food and service were excellent.

“Wonderfull”
My time in Namibia was wonderful. The view of the river was breathtaking. I could see the hippos and crocodiles right from my room window, and I loved the breakfast on the Island. The people were so friendly. My stay at the lodge was wonderful.

“Absolutely Fantastic!”
The sign doesn’t look like much from the road – do they ever though? Dusty road and then you pull into the gates, and you arrived at an Eden. Once down at reception, it just gets better and down at the restaurant and bar its bloody fabulous! Service is great, food is excellent, staff is professional & friendly. Boat cruises in the evenings are incredible, idyllic and the guides are excellent. Definitely put this place onto your list if you’re in the area.
