The Caprivi is a long way from most places but the roads are good and Divava was a real find. Accommodation, service, food and views were all good. The Mahango game park is well worth a visit but for some sections it is best to take a 4 wheel drive as there is a lot of very soft sand but...

We stayed for 3 nights. The location is beautiful and the grounds are charming and well maintained. Unfortunately the maintenance in the chalets is poor. The outside shower drain did not work at all and the inside just barely functioned well enough to keep water out of the hall. It was difficult to open/close the door to the deck. Carpet...

Great chalets with outside shower & patio overlooking the river. Well appointed with everything to hand. We really enjoyed our stay - efficient & friendly staff with wonderful lounge/bar & restaurant overlooking the river. I recommend the Spa & the boat trip with sundowners at Popa Falls.

I do not regret choosing this lodge as my new year get away destination with my family. It was just the right balance of tranquility, nature and modernisation. The lodge is true to its name as it is very much a river lodge and the views from the lodge and the boat cruise was simply amazing. The spa is a...

Perfect place to stay exploring Caprivi. Great excursion by boat, hippos and crocs. Parks to visit very nearby with elephant, sable antilope (rare), zebra, etc. Great food served on the deck viewing the river

Spacious, split level room over looking the Okavango river. Staff, bar area, food all very good and spa was very reasonable.Easy access to Mahango Core Area. The afternoon river trip is well worth doing.

Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that the welcome didn't go as supposed. I can assure you we treat every guest the same, regardless their background.

The room was very nice but did not sleep well there. There were two safes in the room neither worked. Staff gives weird unfriendly vibes. Think this is the place where someone stole money from our room. It had rained and had to let things dry out and since the safes weren't working left it on the desk while going...

Excellent food. Staff superb. Rooms spacious. Ours was a little way out which might be a problem if elderly or infirm. Lovely outdoor shower with river view. Took a sunset trip to Popo falls - really good.
