We stayed at Ndhovu in November 2015 and we must say that we had a great time there. The location of the lodge is perfect. The tents are right on the river and you can wake up and go to bed observing and listening to the hippos and elephants right across the river. Our tent was comfortable and had everything...

We had the 3 night cruise on the Hippo and it was great. After travelling that distance one should spend more time there. We had a lovely trip up to Popa Falls and although the water was high we managed to find a area for a dip in the water. The meals were great with a good variation and more...

Nice camp on the rivershore. Tents with everything you need: Electricity, bathroom with shower and toilet, warm water. Very quiet. I recommend the sundowner boat trip. The nearby park (Mahango) is really worth a visit ( early morning or late afternoon). Food is great! Best whishes Sigi from Berlin

Okay - we should not really tell this (since the risk is that it will be occupied next time we arrive there) - the tented raft - so cool, staying in a luxury african tent on a raft with hippos passing all the time- it cannot get any better. Actually it can - because the place is run by good...

Place and general setup of the Lodge is nice. In relation to the room prices the tents and the decks of the tents are of some age and would need renovation. The main building is a bit dark. Dinner selection could offer more alternatives. There is lots of room for improvements.

Ndhovu Lodge is beautifully nestled by the river banks- makes for excellent views of hippos and elephants as well as warthogs and beautiful birds galore! The tents are - even though fairly 'simple'-very inviting and cozy, no a/c, but fans that were sufficient for our stay in early December. Dinner is in a beautiful and cozy area of the lodge,...

This camp is beautiful. The tented lodges were so comfortable and the bathrooms really well maintained and no mosquitos at all. We hippos so close in the river we sat and watched them for ages. The food here was delicious and our hosts were extremely welcoming it was a great atmosphere that this place I would definitely return!

We stayed at Ndhovu for 2 wonderful nights. Our hosts Berit and Eli were fabulous, the food was exceptional and we particularly liked the communal dining as we met some lovely fellow travellers with interesting tales. Very close to Mahango National Park, lots of wildlife to see from our very comfortable tent and a bird watchers paradise. Prices were very...

Great place to stay for a couple of nights. The views from the deck of the river with elephants and hippos were great. The evening boat trip down the river was lovely with an informative guide and lots of animals to spot. The food served was delicious, although I would preferred not to have communal dining as we were the...

We have spent 2 beautiful days on Hippo boat with captain Horst, seeing elephants, Hippos, crocodiles, taking a bath in the Popa falls. It was quiet, peaceful with a good rest. Nice foods and good lunch services. A trip to be done in the Caprivi strip. Thanks to all the team of Ndhovu lodge
