River Crossing review

We stayed here overnight before our 2 week Namibia self drive tour.

We arrived late d/t plane delays and left early the next morning after breakfast and did not get to enjoy the area. At first we were a bit confused why we had an upscale lodge/room when moving on the next day. However, after spending the morning in Windhoek getting money exchanged, picking up food, we realized how great it was to be outside of the city, not deal with traffic, people, beggars, and having a quiet space after a day of travel.

River Crossing review

This was disappointing compared with the other accommodation we had stayed at. There was no benefit in being out of town and on the way to the airport as our flight was not until 3.00pm.

With hindsight we would have preferred to stay somewhere in Windhoek close to some restaurants and from where we could have done a walk round the city in the morning. Hilltop Guesthouse or similar would have been ideal.

The food at RC was nothing special.

River Crossing review

Excellent overnight stop, especially after three hours at the airport, processing the hire car and filling in the paperwork for our lost luggage.

Would be a great place to stop prior to flying out, staff were friendly, food good, rooms comfortable and a pool.

Ideal First Night Stop

A great rural location overlooking the lights of Windhoek with comfortable individual cabins and friendly service.

River Crossing was the perfect first night stop.

Great room, views, and staff

Everyone was very helpful, welcoming and warm.

Service was great. Salome was kind and entertaining. Dinner was excellent. The chef gave us the soup recipe.

Justine let us use her cell phone to call the rental car company. Great view from the room. Lodge is nice. Breakfast was good.

Excellently choice for staying near Windhoek Airport.

River Crossing review

This was the only place we didn't love. The shower didn't work properly and they tried to fix it but didn't succeed. Then my dinner was terrible--it was ridiculously salty (and I like salty food). I told the lady and she took it away and took off the bill. What we didn't love is that the way the menu read, it had no prices and looked like a pre-fix meal. They asked what we wanted for desert and we assumed by the way they presented, asked... it was part of the meal and so we each chose--not really needing or wanting and then came to find out that it was not part of meal. There were a few other minor things so absolutely not a big deal but was not our favorite and would not be dying to go back.
