"Good last night stay"

1 night Arrived 23 Sep 2015
"Any last night stay has a difficult job to do after such a memorable trip.

This lodge had a spectacular setting high above Windhoek but is on the airport road so really convenient. We enjoyed our evening there and enjoyed the skills of the barbecue chef for dinner.

The chalets were fine with great views but were a little tired." See all these reviews: 13n in Namibia

"A convenient place for the airport"

1 night Arrived 18 Sep 2015
"This was our final stopping point in Namibia and a very convenient place to stay near the airport.

The rooms were good and the staff very friendly and helpful.

Although it calls itself a game reserve we didn't see much and the drives/walks were not heavily promoted." See all these reviews: 11n in Namibia

"Good location for the airport"

1 night Arrived 9 Sep 2015
"River Crossing is in a good location for the airport especially if you are self driving round Namibia. We only stayed 2 single days in the River Crossing at the end and beginning of our self drive tour round Namibia so the location suited us well as we didn't need to stay in the city.

The rooms are adequate and the service is friendly and helpful. It is let down by the food which was not good. We had the worst meals of our trip here, definitely quantity and not quality." See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia; 7n in Botswana; 2n in Zambia; 2n in South Africa
