What is unique at Ndhovu Safari Lodge?
Ndhovu Safari Lodge is the oldest lodge on the okavango river in the caprivi and was established just after
Namibia gained its independence in 1989.
We are pleased to announce the launch of our Houseboat Safaris, the first ever on the Okavango River!
For two to three month of the year we are an island due to the fact that the flow of the river is faster than
the Okavango delta can absorb the water, and it is thus forced to overflow the banks of the river into the
In our lttle shop you can purchase “Penzo” handpainted crockery.
