This was the fifth lodge of the Gondwana Collection that I had the pleasure to stay in during my "travel-career" in Namibia. From my experience they all are very different in their style and decorations, but they all have one thing in common, their enthusiastic, friendly staff that obviously takes great pride in their jobs. This does not mean that... More

Unfortunately Our stay at the Lodge started badly and never quite recovered.We weren't greeted by anyone at the desk upon arrival and when we were finally addressed by the person at the counter they were surprised that we were actually arriving guests much to our chagrin.Once they double checked that we were actually booked in,two glasses of murky looking ice...

I am very glad we stayed two nights and we had time to rest around the beautiful pool .. We loved the vegetables garden.. each bungalow has different vegetables growing and apparently they use them in the kitchen!!! The staff was very helpful, but we did feel a few times that some of them are just out of hospitality school... More

Overall a really great place. Staff was friendly, beautiful reception with jewellery displayed, great food too. The rooms were rustic and nice and clean. But the shower water was not hot and very very low heat. We travelled in winter, so hot water is paramount. other than that I would stay here again! It has very beautiful gardening and landscapes....

Thank you to Damara Mopane Lodge for a lovely stay. The staff was really friendly and helpful. Food was excellent and beautifully presented. Even when we left some thing behind, they went out of their way to get it back to us! well done!

Not enough parking, parking near the rooms is a necessity as the rooms are far from the main buildings The dinner buffet could be improved,The gondwana discount makes it affordable.The gardens around the rooms are very good.

We enjoed our stay.The welcome was friendly and made us feel at home.The generous benches for stacking luggage in the room should be copied by all lodges.We could put our case at the end of the bed .Convenient.My usual gripe with the park and convey system with luggage.So much easier if we coul park nexr to our room

Arrival very friendly and no problems at all. Rooms clean and tidy no issues at all. Sundowner walk lots of fun. Dinner really splendid - good food. Whole setup of the lodge is great - you really feel at home.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Built in the wattle and daub style under Mopane trees and connected by a labyrinth of paths, the main building and chalets of the lodge look like an African village. The walls are adorned by copies of the rock engravings at Twyfelfontein. Each of the 60 double room chalets (with air conditioning) sits in a vegetable and herb garden surrounded by a low wall. The gardens supply fresh ingredients for supper, which consists of a starter followed by a delicious buffet. There is a swimming pool for chilling out and a viewing point for relishing sunsets. The lodge at the gates of Damaraland is ideally suited for excursions to Twyfelfontein (130 km), the Petrified Forest (70 km) and the Vingerklip rock pillar (50 km). ... more   less
