Your hosts Valentino and Karin, owner managed look forward in welcoming you at RiverDance. Our Lodge comprises of stunning architecturally designed glass and wooden spacious units. Inspiration was drawn from birds’ nests and each unit is safely tucked between trees where guests can enjoy complete privacy. Be assured of Namibian hospitality, unaffected by seasonal flooding, and breathtaking views of the mighty Okavango River.

Each unit consists of two ¾ beds with a converter option, a desk area, the finest handmade Namibian linen and a private deck. Each bathroom is spacious, with a macorro (traditional boat) inspired bath, bathrobes and towels. The room and bath units are connected with wooden floors. A lovely pool and internet access are available. Nestled amongst hundreds of trees, our exquisite waterfront units and camping sites awaits you

The campsites are spacious with private access to the river. Each has its own bathroom fitted with a shower, basin and toilet. Adjacent to the bathroom you will find you own area with washing basin, portable braai (barbeque) and electricity supply. A deck ensures that camping and self-drive guests gain their own access to the river.
