River Crossing Lodge
‘Feel the pulse of the city from the heart of the bushveld’
River Crossing is 3km from Windhoek on the airport road being only 5 minutes from the heart of Windhoek and is located on a pristine 6500 hectare game reserve.
The main lodge building comprises a dining room, a centrally situated bar, a lounge with fireplace, a wellness room, a curio corner, and a conference room seating up to 65 delegates.
Nestled outside between the lounge and dining area is the pool. The elevated wooden-deck offers a fairytale view of Windhoek.
The Lodge and the 20 chalets have been designed to emulate old German farm houses – think ‘stoep’ with ‘afdakkie’ and pots of geraniums

What to do at River Crossing
Besides our accommodation we also offer a host of activities including game drives, horse riding, guided or self guided walks and mountain biking.
We have a selection of function venues and would love to host your 60th birthday bash, your 25th wedding anniversary or any other occasion you can think of.
The game drives morning and afternoon are engaging… the views are superb, the flora varied and the game abundant. Nineteen different species roam the reserve, including roan, sable, giraffe and wildebeest… leopard and cheetah are also seen from time to time.
The reserve can also be explored on foot… in the company of one of our guides or on your own. Footpaths will be laid out soon, but roads and game tracks make the going good. The reserve is very hilly, so a basic level of fitness is required.
Mountain bikes will be introduced at a future date (the hills have been mentioned!) – many mountain bikers from Windhoek know the property well and have ridden here in the past.
Horses are also a very eco friendly way of exploring the lie of the land… quiet and un-invasive, the horses allow guests to get a lot closer to the game than in a vehicle.
The wellness centre run by Claire Liebenberg offers tired and aching limbs (either from driving our gravel roads or stress from work or sports related injuries) a soothing way to rehabilitate.
