This luxury mountain camp lies atop a rocky outcrop surrounded by enormous ochre-coloured boulders in western Namibia’s Damaraland. Mowani Mountain Camp features award-winning architecture and an innovative design that blends in with the spectacular natural surroundings. It is the perfect base from which to experience the delights of southern Damaraland.
Offering sublime accommodation, impeccable service and superb cuisine, it will appeal to adventurous couples and honeymooners seeking an unforgettable and relaxing escape in a magnificent setting.
The eco-lodge provides 15 spacious and elegant dome-shaped bungalows, built on stilts from thatch, wood and stone. Each room is dotted among the boulders offering maximum privacy and spectacular views of the desert landscape.
Experience the thrill of a game drive along ancient dry riverbeds; visit Twyfelfontein, Namibia’s first World Heritage Site; see the wonders of the Organ Pipes; or set out on an elephant and dune drive. Later in the day, relax by the rock swimming pool as you admire the breathtaking scenery or sip a G&T atop a boulder as you watch the sun set.
Lightfoot Travel provides tailor-made itineraries that include daily tours and excursions, restaurant recommendations and bookings, and can incorporate Damaraland into a greater Namibia and African holiday.
