"Ok basic place to stay close to the airport"

1 night Arrived 19 Sep 2016
"Clean and comfortable basic accomodation close to the airport that was fine for the first stay of the trip before staring travel.

Restaurant isn't great but saves going out into Windhoek." See all these reviews: 18n in Namibia

"River Crossing review"

1 night Arrived 29 Aug 2016
"We stayed here for one night en route from safaris in Botswana to safaris in Namibia.

The cottage was spacious and comfortable, but a bit dark and outdated in decor, I would imagine quite difficult to keep clean.

The service and food were good, without being outstanding.

The location is out of town - which has its advantages, but also some downsides if you need to make any purchases. The view on all sides is nice, again without being outstanding." See all these reviews: 7n in Namibia; 6n in Zambia; 3n in Botswana

"Lovely end to our holiday"

1 night Arrived 14 Aug 2016
"River Crossing is located less than 10 minutes from Windhoek but it felt like another world away from the hustle and bustle. The setting on a hillside overlooking the city is great for relaxing either if you have just arrived, or if you're heading off home (which we were).

There is a nice swimming pool and decking area to relax, and rooms were spacious with everything we needed. Food was excellent too, with great game steak the obvious highlight. Though this isn't centrally located in Windhoek, don't let this put you off - it is such a small distance to travel in for a day/evening trip and this was a lovely place to spend the last night of our holiday."

"A good first stop"

1 night Arrived 3 Aug 2016
"River Crossing was in the perfect position for a first night's stay. Near the airport but it felt rural.

The rooms were lovely as were the staff.

A good but not particularly memorable place." See all these reviews: 13n in Namibia

"River Crossing review"

1 night Arrived 2 Aug 2016
"Staff were friendly and helpful though no one seemed to know anything about our transfer to the airport, which was made worse by the change of time of the flight and a lack of info from Air Namibia about this. Thanks to Tracy and one of the waitresses at River Crossing, this was resolved.

We enjoyed the opportunity to sit in the sun on the terrace at River Crossing, admiring the view of Windhoek, sipping our wine/beer as the sun went down. A sublime moment!

Our room was functional but a bit like sleeping in a bunker! It was certainly not pretty!" See all these reviews: 15n in Namibia; 9n in Botswana; 2n in Zambia
