Sunset at River Crossing

River Crossing was a beautiful and luxurious place to refresh for our last night. It is easy to get to from Windhoek and about 40 minutes from the airport. We were greeted with iced tea and once they had sorted out a tiny mix up with our rooms we were very happy with this lodge. Beautiful rooms, delicious food and the children were all offered an alternative if they didn't want what was on the menu at children's prices. The hotel did have a pool and the children went into it for about 3 minutes, it was extremely cold!

The setting was spectacular and sitting on the terrace in the evening watching the sunset with a little drink topped off our holiday in style.

We did not use guided trips at this hotel but as our flight was later in the day we went to Dusternbrook farm about 50 minutes North of Windhoek and were able to see leopards and cheetahs in a rescue centre but in a natural habitat. The cats come within feet of you so keep your hands in and no loud noises! This was a good place to spend the morning and had a little cafe and pool that we could have used included in the price of our tour. The farm is about 20 minutes drive on gravel sand and over a few little streams so four wheel drive is advised. They are very welcoming to day visitors.

River Crossing review

This was an excellent recommendation from EA.

Just the right place after a long overnight trip, and both the facility and out of town location were very welcome. We even returned there on our departure date for a lunch before heading to the airport.

Friendly, super food, nicely situated, and welcoming.

OK place to spend a night

River Crossing is a fine place to spend an evening on the way to or from the airport.

Everything was clean and nice. We were disappointed that there really isn't much to do here. Despite expansive grounds there are no walking paths.

We wanted to ride horses the morning of our flight home and were told the stable manager was "down in the South."

In short, there is nothing wrong with River Crossing but its a place to stay en route to elsewhere and there is no particular reason to spend more time here than necessary.

River Crossing review

this feels like a lodge miles from anywhere despite its close proximity to Windhoek. An ideal place if you wish to avoid staying in a city environment

Perfect for arrivals and departures

A good spot for watching the sun go down over Windhoek and passing relaxing hours before departure

Good Stop Over

Lovely setting. Calm after travelling.

Food and dining staff excellent. Other staff what you'd expect from a conference venue.

A really good choice for a 1 night in or out of Windhoek as you don't have to go into town.

Pool is in the middle of the dining area so not very private.

River Crossing review

Far from the city, so when we wanted to go to Windhoek to walk around, we had to pay an expensive cab fare.

There were also no activities available for us to book to occupy our time. However, hospitality was very good.

The dinner was delicious. The sunset was very pretty. I'm glad we only stayed one night, though.
