We checked in quite late, just in time for dinner, after a long and tiring drive from Swakopmund. After an enjoyable dinner and a welcome shower we just "crashed" for the night, only really checking out this lodge in the morning. The room we stayed in was clean, comfortable and well appointed and had air conditioning. The vegetable and fruit... More

All lodges are settled around the pool. Since we have no kids and theres a very great view outside, we wondered why the park is organised like this? The sundownerplace gives the great view we would like to have from our lodge. Visiting twijfelfontein, petrified forest and vingerclip is still a long drive, unfortunately. No nearby alternative for the poor... More

We stayed at Damara Mopane Lodge in May this year, on our way back to Windhoek from Epupa. It is the ideal place to stay at along the way, breaking up a very long drive. Nico greeted us at reception and informed us that we were just in time for the sundowners on the deck. What a delightful start to... More

After a few days camping, we were very happy to book into the Damara Mopane Lodge! We were a group of 22, of which 12 were children. The service and food were wonderful, the people friendly and sundowners overlooking the Damaraland magical. The accommodation is clean, neat and comfortable. They probably need a revamp at some time. WiFi...I think we... More

We had a very good stay at this hotel. We booked two double rooms for three adults. Each room was clean. The restaurant was nice: We could sit outside even in July (Namibian winter). The dishes were exellent. The only inconvenient thing was the payment. The credit card handler was not working. Therefore all of us had to scrape together... More

What a breath of fresh air- being welcomed by the friendly Salma even before you get out of your car to the clean rooms and freshly prepared dinner. this is the ideal first stop out of the wilderness of the north for weary travellers going to more remote areas. food fresh from their own gardens. dinner was not cheap and...

Friendly staff, clean and comfortable room, particularly enjoyed the sundowner drink from the lookout deck and the buffet Car park is far from the rooms; especially if you have forgotten something in the car.

The lodge was attractively set out with all the cabins having their own vegetable garden. The room and bathroom were comfortable and functional. Staff were attentive and helpful. We climbed the hill to the sundown deck for the sunset. The following day we climbed to the top of the hill on a well marked trail, getting great views and observing... More

This is a really great stopover where the people are friendly and helpful, the accommodation superb and the food very good, like most of the Gondwana places I have used in the past. I'll definitely use it in future again.
