Cresta Mowana has turned out to be one of the best place I have ever visited. The service is excellent with a touch of nature combined with modern technology. They have a wonderful spar located in a very beautiful location. I will recommend them to anyone anyday
Moana Lodge have taught me how sometimes i have to go out and refresh, away from the city noise. I have enjoyed my stay at the Lodge to the fullest, the food, the people and the location of the lodge is explicit.
Our group of 5 people traveled from Namibia to Botzwana via Zambia, where we spent less than 2 days and believed that our PCR tests from Namibia would be valid to enter Botzwana. At the border in Kasane, Botswana quarantine authorities illegally stopped us, demanding a test from Zambia, arguing that we had spent more than 36 hours in Zambia. We were forced to pay for a new test at the border and locked in a hotel of our choice and at our expense. Luckily we had a reservation at Cresta Mowana for the last day of our stay and were able to move it a few days in advance. The next day in the morning our tests were not ready, as we were promised, and we were detained until 18.00, promising tests by this time, but no one could guarantee that they would be ready and we would not lose the remaining days in Botzvana, as we did lost 2 out of 5 that were planned to spend there. Fortunately, the hotel manager, Mrs Carol White, found out about our problem. It took her several hours to bring our problem to a head of the Minister of Tourism of Botswana and it turned out that we were detained illegally and the measure applied to us concerned only trucks. A few hours later, on the personal order of the Minister, we were released. We are incredibly grateful to Mrs. Carol for her kindness and sincere disinterested desire to help. She herself offered us her assistance and was able to solve an almost impossible task in a few hours. Once again, I want to express our endless admiration for Mrs Carol's attitude to the strangers' problems and gratitude for her invaluable support ! I would like to note the completely sincere sympathy and help of the shift manager and the girls at the reception. These are amazingly kind and sympathetic people who tried in every possible way to brighten up our imprisonment and supported us.. We are very grateful to them and sincerely wish them all the best. The hotel organizes safaris and river cruises of a very good standard. The safari was cheaper than that of a private guide. The territory is home to a large number of animals, what can be amazing for kids. The hotel is ideal for a 1-2 night stopover to visit Chobe Park, especially if you are traveling with children.…
both its position and staff friendliness rank high in our assessment. staff - reception and guest relations staff went out of their way to make our stay a memorable one, particularly in ensuring our 40th anniversary became a very special moment and memories created for many years to come.
It is advisable to budget to stay at least 3 days since you will be amazed by the Birds, that continue to chirp way after 18:00 hours whilst u sit by the classic balcony facing the Great Chobe River. U also have to witness the sundown which gives is therapeutic since it will be accompanied by the birds song which fill the horizon.Light warm clothes & sports shoes are handy when undertaking the activities to best enjoy the pristine environment.
