RiverDance Lodge


Captivated by the river and the people whose lives depending upon, Tino & Karin Punzul turned their dream of a lodge on the Okavango into a reality. Working with local craftsman, Tino built the lodge from the ground up. The traditional owners of the land and the community have shared in the process and will share in the future of the lodge’s proceeds. Your hosts at River Dance, Tino & Karin, share their passion for the magic of the river, their knowledge of the bush, and the spirit of generosity, an essential part of life in Namibia, with their guests. The RiverDance Lodge offers luxurious, spacious, private water front units, nestled under beautiful age-old trees. A short private wooden path will lead you to your own holistic experience . . . a 'mokoro' inspired bath, bio-degradable rooibos, rosemary and spring water toiletries, a luxurious bathrobe and a shower. The call of birds, frogs and little creatures that we came to love, will serve as back ground music.
