Unfortunately it is a poor experience from 'Okahirongo Lodges & Camps'that is prompting me to write a review on Tripadvisor to warn any other customers of their inadequate service. Problems arose when Marco [--], an employee of Okahirongo Lodges made a mistake with our flight booking from Windhoek to Elephant Lodge. Two days before our departure flight from Windehoek to...

I have spent 5 days between the Okahirongo Elephant and River Lodge (see my comments on the Elephant Lodge). the River Camp is similar, in terms of quality, to the other one. In my view, the architecture is even more beautiful at the River Camp, since the tents are really nice and the common spaces are gorgeous. the swimming pool...

A great place to stay. For me is the most beautiful plea in the world.The river flows between the high mountains and the desert. The view is amazing. Accommodations, food and staff are fabulous and the manager Peter is the soul of the lodge. Many things to see and do: boat trip on the river, visit Himba people, the sunset...

A great place to stay. Accommodations, staff and food are excellent. Off the beaten track with fabulous scenery. It is a long drive to get there but well worth it. Fly in safaris do service this camp, if that is your preference. Not much game in the area but the scenery makes up for it.

In this amazingly beautiful landscape, mountains on both sides of the valley where a big river flows, is a gem of a lodge. Very eco-friendly (solar panels, water from the river) beautifully designed in a minimalist spirit and all natural colors and materials, the lodge is comfortable and open to the surrounding marvels. The staff is very friendly and welcoming...
