• Klein zwembad
• 4-WD Drives
Damaraland ligt in het centraal- tot noordwestelijke deel van Namibië. Het gebied is droog, desolaat en dunbevolkt. Kenners betitelen deze regio vaak als het mooiste deel van Namibië. Er leven vele soorten vogels en dieren, die zich geheel hebben aangepast aan de extreme omstandigheden. De woestijnolifant en de zwarte neushoorn zijn hier een goed voorbeeld van. Het landschap is zeer indrukwekkend met haar diepe, vaak droge rivierbeddingen, kopjes, rotspartijen, uitgestrekte vlakten en interessante flora.
"One night is not enough"
We had just one night at this beautiful place. The lodge respects the nature and you hardly see the rooms from far. Pool is very nice, so is the sunset at the view point. DInner was very good and they offer a fireplace. Take the superior room, you won't have the sun set but the sun rise
"Out of this world "
After a long arduous drive on gravel roads it was s delight to be met by the smiling gracious staff. This place is amazing and we were looked after so well. The individual rooms are beautiful and it was so quiet at night I could hear our neighbours brushing their teeth! I wish we had been staying more than 1 night to do it justice.
Friends told me this was a great place and they suggested to have 2 nights in this place, which we did ! Amazing lodge, friendly people, great views and great coctails at sunset .... a must do !! Enjoy afrika !
The lodges are set in an amazing landscape and they are set apart from each other so that you can enjoy the privacy and quiet. They have a view point where you can watch the African sunset each night whilst enjoying a sundowner. The room was very large and clean with a fabulous view. The staff were are all very friendly and efficient. The food is of an exceptional standard from a set menu with 2 choices of main course. The breakfast has a good choice of hot and cold options and you can purchase a lunch if you need to. We went on the morning trip in search of the desert elephants and found a family herd with 2 babies, it seems strange seeing elephants in these surroundings. We also came across some giraffe which again is a surprise. In the afternoon we went to Twyfelfontein to see the rock art, burnt mountain and the organ pipes. It was a fascinating tour and seeing the fantastic history of the place with your own eyes. Our guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We would recommend that anyone who comes to Twyfelfontein to see the history and fabulous landscape to stay here for a couple of nights.
"Very impressive property, beautifully situated in the mountainous region of Darmaland"
We recently visited Namibia for a couple of weeks and stayed at three high end resorts including two nights at the Mowani Mountain Camp in Damaraland. Our reservation was made many months in advance through Discover Namibia Safari & Tours, who gave this excellent recommendation as our stop over between Swakopmund and Etosha National Park. The resort is located along D2612 and is well-situated amongst the mountainous, boulder rich area of Damaraland and not far from Twyfelfontein, where herds of desert elephants can be found. The property takes advantage of the natural contours of the surrounding landscape and we really liked the traditional design and tastefully decorated interiors. Common areas and huts were built into surrounding boulders, allowing hut privacy and maximising views for guests. There is a common lounge where you could enjoy afternoon tea and an adjoining dining area, both providing outstanding views into the valley below. We also had memorable meals here and the best we had amongst the luxury resorts visited during this trip. Breakfast had a wide variety of morning cereals and muesli items, cheese, cold cuts and cooked breakfast meals served with juice, coffee and tea. Dinners were a set menu with a choice of two mains. We had oryx fillet and venison (which was probably oryx as well) during our two nights. In both occasions, our meats were perfectly grilled at medium rare and tasted very good. These meals were nothing less than we would expect of better restaurants in Hong Kong, London or NYC. Service was equally impressive across the board and we found it was of a higher standard than other places tried during this trip. Check-in, welcoming staff, kitchen and dining room wait staff and room attendants were timely, friendly and professional. Everyone at Mowani seemed experienced and knowledgable of how and when to service guests. Service felt very natural, nothing awkward or forced. This included our driver/ranger during our desert elephant drive. Our rooms were large and accommodating, with modern furnishing, comfortable beds, spacious bathroom and fully functional fixtures. And the views from the rooms were really special. We enjoyed our own private viewing area of the beautiful landscape of Damaraland, and spotted springbok, jackals and other wildlife walking in the valley. We couldn't ask for more. Additional excellent landscape views are also available in the resort pool and sunset bar, which is located atop some of the largest boulders. The latter makes a lovely sundowner setting with lots of seating for guests. The resort organises local activities and we joined the desert elephant nature drive, as well as visited Twyfeltontein, Burnt Mountain and the Organ Pipes. We found them to be very good with comfortable vehicles and we found the ranger/driver knowledgeable and quite pleasant. In the end, Mowani Mountain Camp was one of those rare places that ticks all the boxes when it comes to getting it right as a luxury resort! They have an excellent location, private huts and common area, food, activities and the best service we encountered during our time in Namibia. We very much enjoyed Mowani and would gladly return for another stay when we come back to Damaraland. Note: Other luxury resorts we tried during this trip to Namibia include Kulala (Sossusvlei) and Onguma The Fort (East Etosha National Park). I have written reviews for these properties as well if useful.
