Along Namibia’s Caprivi Strip or “Zambezi Region” as it is know known, River Dance is perched on the banks of the Kavango River around 30km west of the town of Divundu.
The Kavango is one of Africa’s most iconic and precious rivers. It starts life in deep in the Angolan Highlands, where it is known as by the Portuguese name Rio Cubango, before skirting the border between Angola and Namibia. It then crosses the latter country and drops into Botswana where, with no outlet to the ocean it discharges and creates the wondrous Okavango Delta, or the Okavango Alluvial Fan to give it it’s accurate name.
To have the privilege of the experience and the presence of spending time at this life giving river is something very special and all of RiverDance’s five cabins are built into the lush riverine forest with views towards the river and to Angola on the far bank.
The swiss owners Pascale and Chris are just as passionate about the area and the communities that thrive in this environment. They built the lodge in 2010 with a strong focus on links to the local people and on a sensitivity to the environment. While you are staying at RiverDance head out on game drives into the nearby Mahango or Bwabwata National Parks, take a cruise on the river, enjoy a nature walk or a visit to the local village.
