Malizgani Mhango wrote a review Oct 2021

Excellent place, people, and activities. The food is great as compared to most establishments that I have visited over the 8 years I have stayed in Namibia. They offer superb 5-course dinners that are second to none. The rooms bring with them a feeling that is above many with the sight of overlooking the Kavango River. Divava Lodge was absolutely wonderful. Each accommodation was an individual lodge which was enormous! It had an individual shower, a separate bathtub, and an outdoor shower. The chalet also had its own beautiful deck overlooking the river. the dinner we were served was the best meal we had in Namibia. We also did an afternoon game drive to the Buffalo Entrance of Bwabata National Park which was well prepared and worth the time. This place is wonderful and recommended to anybody traveling to Namibia

This is a 5 star lodge just a couple of miles from Divava, giving affordable rates to Namibians to visit.
The spa and swimming area is excellent. The breakfast & dinners are also wonderful. The rooms are spacious and we loved the outside shower. This is a must visit for Namibians.

Divava Lodge was absolutely wonderful. Each accommodation was an individual lodge which was enormous! It had an individual shower, separate bathtub, and outdoor shower. The shalet also had its own beautiful deck overlooking the river. In our 14 days in Namibia, the dinner we were served was the best meal we had prepared the entire trip.

We also did a afternoon game drive to the Buffalo Entrance of Bwabata National Park which was well prepared and worth the time.

This place is wonderful, and recommended to anybody traveling through the Caprivi strip of Namibia. A+

Before arriving at Divava, we stopped at a local service station, I saw a car with Divava written on it, without thinking I waved at the people and they waved back and said hi! We were so happy to see them like we knew them, they made us felt at home! The rooms and decor are beautiful, all the rooms are on the riverside overlooking the Kavango river, its very spacious and comfortable with a bathtub over looking the Kavango river it was fantastic! The food was excellent, we had breakfast & dinner. Our room were cleaned every day. The game drive in the Bwabwata National Park was fantastic with all wildlife to see there. Management and staff was excellent in their duties. You will see us again, thank you for the lovely stay at Divava.

Overally Divava Okavango Resort and SPA is a beautiful place. I enjoyed the greenery, and it was very nice waking up to the bird's sound. We were blessed with some good rain during our stay, however we were very dissapointed to notice that the roof of our room was leaking and that kind of disturbed our sleep.

Beautiful location, excellent service and great food. One of the most beautiful lodges in the area.
Bath tub overlooking the river. The sundowner cruise is very special. The sound of the Poppa Falls in the background is soothing.

Wonderful location on the Okavango river, accommodation with independent river view offered also external shower. Personnel very supportive in helping us with game drives and activities, nice sundowner cruise with hippo spotting. Dining was great both at dinner with selections, and at breakfast with a wide range of good choices

We booked at Divava Okavango Lodge & Spa to celebrate a special birthday.
We were blown away by the stunning setting of the Lodge and the wonderful attention to detail by all the staff.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to return in the not too distant future.

I've been lucky enough to have visited Divava Lodge many times over the years by virtue of leading motorcycle tours through Namibia and Botswana. I've never yet had a negative report from any of my tour guests. in fact the accommodation, food and amenities have always reflected extremely positively in post tour reports. The staff have always been excellent, friendly and helpful

The only challenge we've faced is the sandy road down to the lodge, given we are riding in on two wheels - but even that becomes a highlight if you put a positive spin on things.

Cant wait to get back!

The location of the lodge is brilliant and it was wonderful to hear the water through the night. We had an amazing experience, the food was very good and the staff very friendly and helpful.
Even though the lodges are not very full, our experience was that the staff went out of their way for good service.
