"Lovely Zebra River Lodge"

2 nights Arrived 20 Sep 2008
"Owners and staff were all very friendly and helpful, delightful atmosphere. Location ideal for hiking and relaxing. Roads to lodge are somewhat unsuitable for anything other than a good sized 4x4." See all these reviews: 15n in Namibia

"Zebra River Lodge review"

2 nights Arrived 7 Sep 2008
"Of all the lodges we stayed at, this was a particular favourite. Stunning landscapes with more than enough walking opportunities.

We did the Canyon walk which afforded fantastic views of the area, and can be completed by any moderately fit person in around 5 hours. Great home cooked food shared with the other guests in the lodge. Staff knowledgeable and friendly." See all these reviews: 18n in Namibia

"Zebra River Lodge - very friendly"

2 nights Arrived 6 Sep 2008
"Rob and Marianna, and the staff at Zebra River Lodge were very friendly and helpful. They very kindly moved us to another room, because of a mouse in our original room! Special thanks to Jana.

We enjoyed the food, particularly the family atmosphere sitting around dining tables, the setting and the walk up to the Quiver tree.

The lodge is a little bit off the beaten track (if there is such a thing in Namibia), but it was a very nice place to spend our first 2 nights in Namibia." See all these reviews: 15n in Namibia

"Wonderful first stop, superb cooking"

2 nights Arrived 4 Sep 2008
"Arrived very late due to delayed flight which meant that we had had to drive in the dark. It is perhaps a little too far for a first stop from Windhoek if you have never been to Namibia before and driven on the dirt roads!

We had a smashing welcome and it was lovely to all sit around the dinner table sharing experiences with fellow travellers. Rob and Marianne both have plenty of knowledge about the area. Rob particularly went to a great deal of trouble to explain an onward route for us and this resulted in another highlight of our holiday. Rob is hoping to gain a commercial pilots licence soon so with an air strip there will be an extra dimension to this location.

Unfortunately at the time of our visit they were struggling to combat a domouse infestation in a couple of the rooms which whilst understandable in this sort of area did result in a fairly disturbed sleep.

The Canyon and quiver tree walk is well worth the effort but allow a little more time if you find the heat tiring, packed lunch superb." See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia

"Zebra River Lodge review"

2 nights Arrived 21 Aug 2008
"A very relaxing place with a warm welcome and very helpful, friendly staff. There was a convivial atmosphere in the dining room - lots of conversation and good food and wine.

We seemed to have a more baisc room than others and were offered a change the second day but didn't take it as we were just about to go on a walk.

Lots of opportunities for walks with good maps and explanations. An ideal end to a busy holiday." See all these reviews: 6n in Botswana; 5n in Namibia
