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.
Of all the places that we have been to in Namibia, this is probably the most scenic. Surrounded by the ochre boulders of Damaraland, the lodge certainly makes an impression. The service in fantastic. The view from the main sitting area is breathtaking. However that view pales in comparison with the one from the "sundowner rock". Watching the sunset from there is an experience that will stay with you for a long time. Dinner is set menu at the main restaurant and the food was slightly disappointing. Chicken was dry and lamb chops were too fatty. It looks like the restaurant is trying to keep the cuisine European, but I think they would be better off going for something local, something that the chefs know and love to cook. It wasn't bad, no, just a tad bit uninteresting. The lodge has a policy of no wi-fi. I understand their intentions, but can't support them. Yes, you can enjoy the breathtaking beauty of this place for hours, but it doesn't mean I should not be able to check on what is going on in the outer world. Well, in the end of the day, it is their lodge and their policy. Just keep it in mind. The lodge is perfectly located to explore the highlights of Damaraland: the rock paintings of Twyfelfontein, the Organ pipes, the Burnt mountain, and, a bit further away - Petrified Forest. If you are heading that way on your own (like we did), make sure you depart early, as the heat is scorching most of the year (even in the end of April). So, all in all, an interesting (and quite luxurious) experience if a tad bit pricey.
"Very interesting place"
The surrounding nature is stunning, and the tents/bungalows are built in a way that they blend naturally with the environment, at the same time being very comfortable and full of character. The smaller separate tent for children (it has beds, lights and is located right next to the parents' bungalow) is a lot of fun as well. For me the main highlight was the sunset which is truly unique, and sundowners certainly make it even more attractive. The only thing they could improve is food - it was quite plain and boring, no Namibian game, and the breakfast was quite uninspiring too. Otherwise a great place to stand in Damaraland.
"Camping at itâ€™s best "
The camp sites at mowani really blew me away. They were just gorgeous. Each site was large and had a very nice set up with a private bathroom set into the rocks, a kitchen area with tables and sinks and a braai place looking straight out into the open. The camp sites are in a row so you barely notice if you have neighbours and your views of the landscape are unobstructed. There is no electricity but the water heating system works very well. Make sure you bring all your food and supplies with you as this is very far from civilisation. We absolutely loved it!
"Wow and wow again"
There is not much you can say thatâ€™s bad about this place, however I have to downgrade by just one point for the sadly patchy service. Upon arrival you are immediately wowed by the common areas which are without compare for views and giving the â€œout of Africaâ€ experience. Our two rooms, 1 & 2, must be amongst the best in terms of location within the camp, they literally stunned us and we never tired of looking out to the extraordinary landscape. I canâ€™t really rave about the food or the service but even so would not hesitate to recommend the Mowani Mountatin Lodge. Our lovely guide Vangee was an exception regarding service, he was superb and made up for all the other slight annoyances. This is a very intimate destination with just a few guests making it feel really special. Iâ€™m only saddened I have to point out the tiny issues but feel thatâ€™s what TripAdvisor is for, we must be honest or it doesnâ€™t work.
Stunning, beautiful, outstanding, there is no shortage of adjectives to describe this place. Everything about it was perfect: the rooms, the pool, the restaurant, the location, the staff, the excursion. It just went by too fast!
