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.
"Excellent location, great views and landscape, good food"
The bungalows are located in the middle of the granite mountain, very friendly with the landscape. We stayed there for our honeymoon and we found a bottle of sparkling wine waiting for us. The views from the terrace of each room are breathless, there is a view point for sunset and the restaurant and main lobby is so nice. No wifi that allows you to desconnect. 15min away from Rock engravings. The only point to improve is the luxury room bathroom decoration as it not matches with the style of the lodge (plastic floor shower and classic plastic sink that would be better if it was done with natural resources such as trees, wood, like the general toilets ones). In conclusion, I would stay there again to feel the relax.
Mowani Mountain Camp is set in such a stunning setting it is difficult to describe. The accommodation is luxurious although the lack of air conditioning is a problem. Wifi is not available which is unacceptable in this day and age. Yes the scenery is stunning, but it is not up to the management to decide that guests should be looking at that and not on their phones. The food was o.k. nothing special and the service was adequate, with a couple of stand out waiters who made us feel welcome. This lodge is unlike any other we have stayed at in South Africa or in Namibia. It became apparent that, unlike other lodges where the Manager acts as a host and makes the guests feel welcome, at this lodge the manager couldn't be bothered to interact with the guests at all. In fact I thought he was the short order cook, dressed as he was in a grubby teeshirt and shorts. He did not speak to me other than glance up from his phone to say good morning and then straight back to the phone. This was adding insult to injury, considering guests are not offered wifi. Apparently it is a husband and wife operation, but his wife did not speak or interact with the guests either. During lunch one day I observed a man and a friend treating one of the waiters curtly. I always dislike it, when I see behaviour such as this. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that the man was the owner! He made no effort to speak to any of the guests either. When lodges make the guests feel as if they are being treated like 'family', it makes for a very different experience than this one.
"nice views for sunset"
Once again a last minute change, we booked initially their campsite, because we understood both lodges (kipwe and mowani) were fully booked. Although once arrived, they had a free room at Mowani, claiming that their booking system was not (never) accurate and not up to date. We already stayed here once, so we could benchmark, the lodge is still very nice, the food is very good and service during dinner made some improvements. We again went for the sundowner on the rock, as this was the most memorable moment from our last visit, although the sunset was amazing, we found that the staff (there were 5 hanging around) didn't help to that special feeling, they only served the drinks, put some snacks in the middle and told everyone 'help yourself' and went back to their place to talk all the time to eachother, this while all guests were trying to enjoy in silence the 'romantic' moment .. so this could certainly be different. Another difficult point is also to understand whom was in charge, whom was the manager, a bit strange.. Anyway, if coming back we would try Kipwe again, as even when good improvements were made in this lodge, we still have a preference for their sister property..
"Luxury in the middle of nowhere"
This place is special. We had "The Suite" for one night while travelling through Damaraland. The suite looks over the valley below and is absolutely private. There is an outside bath and shower as well as an inside bathroom. The view from the huge bed is stunning as is the view from the lounge and deck area. The meals were excellent as were all the staff here. We went on the afternoon drive the Burnt Mountain and the stone etching which was very good. We did not have time to do the morning excursion to see the Desert Elephants which was disappointing. There was not a thing that I could say was bad or needed improving here.
"Spectacular sunset at Twyfelfontein"
Close to Twyfelfontein (rock paintings) and dotted among the boulder rocks lie the mushroom like domes of the lodge. Rooms are separate bungalows that are very spacious with a luxury interior and with a nice terrace. Reception is excellent. The rooms have no keys and are not locked. Inside you have an electronic in-room safe. There is no minibar and no air-conditioning (a fan is present though) but other amenities are present. In the evening, however, temperatures cooled down and became comfortable, so sleep quality was excellent. Sockets are of the Namibian type. Water supply did not give any trouble during our stay. At that time WiFi was not available and the telephone connection weak. This has to do with the isolated but beautiful location. There is a small outside pool and a terrific sundowner vista point where you can watch the sunset sipping on a nice cocktail. In the evening when you return to your bungalow torches are available to light your path. Not cheap but worth the price.
