In northern Namibia lies a beautiful, untouched area known as the Kavango region. It is here, right on the banks of the Okavango river, that you will find Kayova River Lodge. Affectionately known by the locals as 'shiwangundu' (pearl) of the Okavango and situated between the towns of Rundu and Divundu, Kayova River Lodge is perfectly positioned for guests to explore the natural beauty of Northern Namibia.

Kayova River Lodge was officially opened in 2012 and overlooks a spectacular section of the Okavango river, home to a variety of fish, birdlife, wildlife and diverse vegetation. World-class fishing, game viewing and birding are all easily accessible from our comfortable lodge, overlooking the river. Kayova River Lodge is unique in that it is a 100% community-based lodge, with all the profits from the lodge going directly back to the Kavango community, where the lodge is situated.

Whether for business conferences or relaxed vacations, Kayova River lodge is equipped to meet your needs and ensure that your stay with us is truly unforgettable. The lodge offers an authentically African experience and the tranquil setting allows you to unwind without the stresses of everyday life.
