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.

We spent two nights at the Damara Mopane Lodge. This new lodge, not even four years old, is beautiful. Every room got it's own vegetable garden. The food is very good and the fresh vegetables from the garden is outstanding.

Take a bather, take some books as this is your chance to soak-up silence. The staff are friendly. I would have appreciated a low down beach chair on the stoep at the at the main building to watch nature turn colour

At the reception they command you to fill in the form. Afterwards the woman at the reception gave us the key, without any verbal interaction or whatsoever. The next day during checkout the receptionist did not spoke. Hospitality is zero at this place. Nobody greets you!!! The room is spacious but dirty with lots of mosquitos on the ground. The... More

You walk in, and you feel home. The setting is pretty with lots of space. Like the other Gondwana lodges, they are all very family friendly. They even let our kids eat from the buffet early because they were tired. They grow their own vegetables and use them for their kitchen, what a clever idea. We could have stayed longer.

Our little group spent one night here at the Damara Mopane Lodge, another lodge in the Gondwana Collection. For my personal taste, it is a little too big, catering mainly to large groups (but also small ones and independent travellers). The whole lodge is nicely laid out in a semi-circle around a huge pool in a lush garden. Whilst the... More

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
