Kayova River Lodge is an authentic, community-based African lodge situated on the banks of the Okavango River in northern Namibia. Visitors from all over the world are drawn to this unique area by the promise of an authentic African experience of a lifetime.

Kayova River Lodge is situated in the breathtaking Kavango region in Nambia, in the heart of warm and welcoming rural communities, bordering the breathtaking country of Angola. In this raw African oasis, you can observe hundreds of remarkable bird species and game that have made the area their home. The diverse habitat, abundant fishing opportunities and real experiences of the local culture and people, make Kayova River Lodge the ideal place for a unique and unforgettable holiday. It is a true haven for bird lovers and photographers.

It is also a wonderful opportunity for students or volunteers looking to get involved in a local African community and give back to this community through our social development projects.

Managed and maintained by friendly staff from the local community, Kayova River Lodge offers comfortable accommodation in 8 double air-conditioned thatched bungalows, with mosquito nets and ensuite bathrooms. Since 2016 you can choose one of our 12 luxury tents as well to stay overnight. It is an ideal Namibian conference venue, with a large conference house, as well as an idyllic Namibian wedding setting on the banks of the Okavango river.

After a day of fishing, hippo viewing, visiting the local community, or nearby game reserves, take a plunge in the swimming pool as a wonderful respite from the warmth of the African sun, or relax in our bar or outside terraces. Local and international cuisine is served in a charming African-themed restaurant overlooking the water.

Because the profits of the Kayova River Lodge go back into the community where the lodge is situated, you will also know that your visit has given much more than just wonderful memories for the rest of your life – it has also helped the people who live there have better lives.

We look forward to seeing you at Kayova River Lodge!
