Divava Okavango Lodge
Divava Okavango Lodge is close to the small town of Divundu in North East Namibia. The area is very rich in diversity with several national parks close at hand and beautiful sceneries of the river banks all around. This is not the easiest area to access and our expert advice is to self drive there. Fly into Windhoek and hire a vehicle. This is certainly the most practical way of travel in Namibia and will allow you much greater flexibility.
For advice on vehicle hire, get in touch with us. We will do all the bookings and ensure your vehicle is waiting for you when you arrive in Windhoek.
The drive to the lodge is over excellent roads and through small rural villages. This is an perfect chance to see the manner in which the locals live. Drive past the “butchery”, a small table along the side of the road with fresh meat lying in wait of customers. The cultural exposure is quite something to behold.
Arriving at the lodge it’s a small oasis and its immediately apparent you are in a beautiful environment. There is ample area to park your car and reception overlooks the dining area and decks. A small swimming pool is also present for the hotter days. A spa is next to the pool for some pampering.
Walking down the stairs to the main dining room the scenery of the Kavango River opens up beautifully. Breakfast and dinner on the deck are very special with stunning sunsets. Take an afternoon boat cruise and let the guides show you Hippo, Crocodile and occasionally Elephant. The boat cruise stops at Popa Falls as the sun is setting and you can get off the boat onto a sand island for sun downer drinks.
Game drives into the National Parks are very rewarding for game sightings. Most of the Big Five are within a short drive of the lodge on open vehicles in the mornings and afternoons.
