Just like Shangri La

It's quite a drive to get there, but well worth the effort; a little oasis in the middle of a vast landscape. This was our second trip to Zebra River & I hope it will not be our last.

After our first stay, we decided that we had to go back to Zebra River if ever we returned to Namibia. The 4 nights just flew by. Rob & Marianne are so welcoming, it's like home from home.

To get the most out of Zebra River, we recommend a stay of more than 2 nights - the walking is amazing & the food excellent!

Zebra River Lodge review

If you want to be looked after and really expierence sincere human hospitality and an outstanding very special location go to Zebra River Lodge.

ZRL not necesserily set up to cater for children ie no high chair, cot and a dog that is definitely not child friendly.

The friendliest lodge ever in a fab location

This lodge is run by a very special couple, Marianne and Rob Field, who have become good friends over the years. They know the area intimately and pass on every bit of this knowledge to their guests.

The atmosphere is homely and very comfortable rather than luxurious. The location is stunning and is fantastic for walking. Rob is a very professional pilot and his flights over the area are special.

Zebra River Lodge review

There is'nt much more we can say about Zebra Lodge, we had room no.9 for our longer stay this year and christmas was a delight, all Mariannes family were over from SA, how she managed the rooms and other guests was remarkable!

Rob has made big improvements to the pool area so that it is now possible eat around a very large table there. We were very happy to welcome the spectackled doormice to no.9 during our stay!

Great hospitality

We were in the room which was well above the Lodge - a wonderful spot with fantastic views and total privacy. Definately worth the walk up to it.

Rob and Marianne were tremendous hosts, making the guests feel as if they were part of the family without invading our "space". The meals were excellant.

The trip up to the spring was very well worth doing, in spite of the heat!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Zebra River Lodge review

We were warmly welcomed by Marianne and imediately made to feel at home. We were extremely lucky to be given guest room number 9, built into the side of the hill - you needed to be quite fit to reach it! but once there the view and the room make it well worth the effort.

It was a very relaxing time and we were well looked after for part of the time by Neil (a friend of the family) and Jana as Marianne and Rob were away. We also enjoyed the food and the company.

We were glad that we had a high clearance vehicle to make the journey from Soussus Dune Lodge to Zebra River - Not too far in distance but hard driving.

Zebra River Lodge review

This is a charming relaxing place at which we have stayed twice before, but it's Marianne's personality that dominates it.

If she and Rob move on it will be interesting to see what happens there.

Zebra River Lodge review

Very attractive setting, lodge delightful with good views and good walks, well documented by Robert and Marianne and cairned by Neil.

Robert and Marianne very enthusiastic and helpful, food very adequate and good quality. Pool tiny and uninviting, unfortunately no fridge.
