River Crossing review

The location of River Crossing near the airport was perfect for our first night in Namibia. (We did not want to drive into central Windhoek after 40 hours of travel.)

The staff members were helpful and the food was excellent.

Has potential

Location is stunning! What a beautiful place to start off our holiday.

Staffing seemed a little confused in that barman checked us in and helped carry bags to our room (no paved paths to wheel cases on) and it all seemed a little uncomfortable. For some reason they thought we were a honeymoon couple which also resulted in awkwardness but a nicely decorated bed!

Cabins are nice but the room we were placed in did not have air conditioning even though we were told it did. The cabins either side of us did though - confusing! We asked and were allowed to change rooms.

Food was fine but, as there were few guests the atmosphere was slightly lacking. Staff were pleasant but could have been more engaging.

With a little more experience this Lodge will provide a lovely alternative to staying in Windhoek itself.

Excellent Service at River Crossing

We had an early flight out of WIndhoek Airport, so we chose to stay overnight at River Crossing due to its proximity to the airport. We were only there for a short time, but we were impressed by every aspect of the lodge. It is set on high ground with commanding views over Windhoek and was a very pleasant and enjoyable place to spend our last night in Namibia. We saw a beautiful sunset, moon rise and sunrise, as well as a great view of the stars from our bathroom window. The public areas were very attractive and comfortable, and the food and facilities were excellent.

The best feature here is the staff. Everyone was incredibly helpful and friendly, and we were made to feel very welcome. There was a happy, warm, friendly atmosphere - particulary in the restaurant.

We would recommend River Crossing as a first or last night stop due to its proximity to the airport, however we do not think that it should be limited to this since it is a very attractive, comfortable and well run establishment. It is close to the city, so it could easily form a base for exploring Windhoek.

River Crossing review

Convenient for the airport, but nothing much to do unless you pay for a very expensive game drive. Pleasant views of the city and arid hills.

The road up to the lodge is fairly rough compared with many other dirt tracks we went on in Namibia - perfectly do-able in a 2WD but take it very slowly to avoid grounding in places.

Excellent accomm at River Crossing Lodge

River Crossing Lodge is only a short drive from Windhoek yet in a quiet bush setting in the hills.

Rooms are dotted around the hill with spectacular views. Also good brdlife. They are well designed and very comfortable wth feather duvets, DSTV (a few channels), drinks fridge, phone.

Service was fine, if a bit fussy, but the lodge has only recently opened, so I'm sure it will settle down.

Directions on internet are inaccurate, the turning off the airport road is about 6km from town. And the signpost is hard to see from the road, look for the sign to the vinyard
