Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

With easy access to the airport and the city, River Crossing is well-placed for your first or last night in Namibia. The lodge is in a 6,500-hectare private game reserve with plains game including giraffe, zebra, wildebeest and the rare sable and roan antelopes. The blond-brown, acacia-dotted hills fold into the distance in all directions and Windhoek's modest lights twinkle behind you.

Accommodation is in swish en suite chalets with great views of said mountains and city though with their sturdy anti-nature construction and nondescript furnishings, perhaps lacking in that certain something which puts you in Namibia, let alone Africa. As a comfortable and stylish overnight, however, you could do far, far worse.

The main living area is all about the view. A glorious deck hovers above the valley with a plunge pool and al fresco dining area. Inside, a central fireplace gets the cozy factor going and, considering you'll most likely be on safari in our winter, this is where you'll spend your evenings. The highlands of Windhoek can get chilly.

Activities on the menu include game drives, bush walks (stretch those legs after a long flight or day's driving), birding, mountain biking, horse riding and just relaxing by the pool, built into the viewing deck, with a trashy novel and a cold beverage.


20 chalets; en suite bathrooms with showers (two with baths instead of showers); private balcony; double or twin configs; tea/coffee; TV; safe; telephone; restaurant; swimming pool; bar; lounge.


Large private game reserve safe for walking, cycling, horse riding and scenic game drives; city tours and restaurant runs. Don't be fooled by the name, the river, like almost all Namibia's rivers, is ephemeral at best.
