We decided to stay at Kayova River Lodge for 4 days and we loved it. The staff was friendly and the food was very nice. We ate definitely the best pizza in the whole Kavango region and were amazed by the Apple crumble we tried :)
Over and above every room has a nice deck with a beautiful view (towards the Okavango river) and also a pool for everyone to freshen up.
I asked for a boat trip on our first day at the lodge and immediately fell in love with the scenery and the wildlife (hippos, crocodiles, elephants, birds....).
Since the Lodge is part of a community upliftment project, we were happy that our money was well spent and is actually helping the local people with these projects (I can't remember all of them but they built some kindergartens and an orphanage for instance).
We will come back again and can highly recommend kayova river Lodge!
