Ndhovu Lodge


Ndhovu Safari Lodge is the oldest lodge on the Okavango River in the Zambezi region, and was established just after Namibia gained its independence in 1989. To complement our popular luxury tents, we have introduced our exciting new Safari Houseboat – the first on the Okavango River – with accommodation for up to four people on the upper deck and a lounge, dining area and shower facilities on the lower deck. The opportunity of taking Luxury River Safaris offers Guests a novel adventure as they explore Popa Falls and the Okavango river. On land, our regular Game Drives take Guests to view a multitude of wildlife in nearby Game Parks. For two to three months, almost every year, Ndhovu becomes an island when the Okavango River overflows into the neighboring flood plains during the rainy season, when the Okavango Delta is unable to absorb the increased river flow. In our little shop you can purchase ‘Penzo’ hand-painted crockery designed and produced in Zimbabwe.
