• 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.
Stayed here for one night whilst on a tour of Namibia, amazing place. The setting is just so gorgeous. Our 'hut' was fabulous, and to wake up looking out at the boulders was amazing. We arrived just in time to have a quick shower and go to the viewpoint to watch the sun go down with a drink or two, efficient, friendly service from the guys there. Food that night was really good, it was a set menu with 2 choices of mains. (you must visit the toilets, you'll know why when you see them!) Breakfast was fab, at first we thought there was no hot food as we could just see fruit/ pastries but the guy came and took our orders for eggs etc so its all cooked fresh. I really wish we'd had longer here to use the pool and just soak up the view but we had to move on to our next location. If you get chance to stay here you must do it, you will never forget it...........
"Extraordinary setting among huge granite boulders"
Driving up to the shielded camp was already sensational. This was the first place where we had valet parking! Our deluxe bungalow is accessed through its own front door, some steps down to a large private deck behind a huge boulder and in front of the bedroom rondewel of about 40 m2. The design and setting of the other buildings, pool area and rooms is equally spectacular. In the evening a sundowner is offered on top of a huge rock where pillows, cushions and safari chairs are provided for comfort while enjoying a panorama view over the boulder landscape below and some rock dassies (hyraxes) racing around the rocks. In the large reception hall, there is coffee, tea and soft drinks, etc. complimentary. Dinner can have some improvements, but the breakfast is elaborate.
I would definitely not recommend this campsite. Despite the wonderful location and luxurious toilets carved in the rock boulders, the overall experience was terrible. The only welcome we had was from the guard at the entrance gate who showed us the directions to our campsite, and indicated us that swimming pool, bar and restaurant were off limits for campers (you could however go buy drinks at the bar but had to immediately return to your campsite). The allocated campsite was uneven and it was impossible to find a flat spot to park the car with the tent, and the privacy was very relative (other campers around 6-8 meters opposite). The hot shower was provided by a private wood furnace, which the guard said he would come at 6:30 but actually no sign of him. Worse, waste water was flooding from a broken pipe one meter from the place where we set up the tent and two meters from the kitchen ; we were told by the guard that it was only the kitchen sink water, but based on the really stinky smell this could have been the toilet water as well. Given the fact a night there was really expensive, this was worse than a bad joke and I really advise AGAINST staying at Mowani as a camper.
"Perfect stay with one hiccup"
This place is gorgeous. The setting is beautiful and it's been worked into its environment by an obviously talented team of designers, architects, engineers, and contractors. It's more of a work of art than a lodge. We had the nicest room here - a suite - so I can't tell you what the other rooms are like. The suite was actually 3 buildings joined together. A living room with satellite tv and fully stocked bar, a bedroom in a separate but joined hut, and a stand alone shower/bathroom building. In addition there was an outside tub and shower. Namibia is dreadfully short of water so I couldn't see ourselves wasting a tub full of water but it sure would have been amazing. The staff are wonderful too. Consciencious, polite, and attentive. Our waiter Ambrosius was so nice. The sundowner area is beautiful with a great view of the sunset and a bar that made some wonderful drinks. Don't miss it - it's very worthwhile. The excursion driver, Rosie, is a bit over the top but very engaging and likeable. Truly everything about this place is thought out to the nth detail. They have customer service and satisfaction figured out. Kudos to them. We had one setback - our hot water heater didn't work (reading some of the other reviews this has happened before) and we ended up taking cold showers. Bit of a bummer but Hey! Its the Namibia desert and we're taking a shower! How cool is that? Highly recommended!
"Perfect Blend with Nature"
We stopped over at Mowane Mountain Camp en route to Etosha game park. 3 Kms off the main road, it emerges suddenly, unpretentiously, but beautifully located amongst spectacular rock formations. Reception, Dining Area and Lounge are situated in one cluster with well appointed rest rooms unobtrusively tucked away behind some rocks. Individual chalets are built in traditional rondels, walking distance amongst the myriad rocks, and exquisitely melded into natural gaps and crannies (see photos). We had booked a mini suite and the layout plus amenities were of the highest standard. Compimentary bottles of wine and spirits, a wide selection of non alcoholic drinks, everything that a weary traveller seeks out after a tiring day's drive. Meals were European in structure, used local game and imported materials from nearby South Africa. Quality and standard of service was top notch.Sunset viewing from a point nearby is made more special by considerate hosts who have set up a small bar in a rocky crevice nearby!
