Definitely our best stay during our trip in Namibia. The location is superb, our suite was fabulous. The proposed tour to visit the Twyfelfontein very interesting. Very warm and professional welcome. High quality culinary offer (wow the desserts were super). Highly recommended!

Unfortunately we only had 2 nights at this camp in the stunning Damaraland! Superbly located amidst giant boulders with great views. We stayed in the gorgeous Mountain Suite, perched high amongst the boulders with magnificent views to the valley below. Three spacious, delightful, thatched roof rondavels capture the views amazingly well! Living area in the first one, a couple of... More

Mowani mountain camp is a lovely place, built amongst the boulders with a view that beats most views. The food is terrific, amongst the best we had in Namibia, and the room was very nice too. Quiet and nicely cool at night. We had a mountain view room, and it was nice to have a sunset view to ourselves. I... More

I will preface this review by saying that we stayed in the suite and it is a suite like no other I have seen! With total privacy (signs saying for "suite guest only") you will enjoy the opportunity to shower and soak in a tub on the panoramic verandah - and even have your lunch delivered there so you can...

Exceptional setting and location, tents magnificent (but in desperate need of air conditioning - it was so hot that sleep was almost impossible - and lights to illuminate the step up from sleeping to changing areas - we all came a cropper!) Amazing staff, magical sundowner spot, non-stop water fountain action with a variety of creatures in attendance and a... More

We were very excited about staying at Mowani having read the reviews and seen the photos on the website. The location and architecture are incredible. We stayed in a superior view room and enjoyed wonderful panoramas from our balcony. The sunset from their viewpoint is really worth watching, although the cocktails are basic-bad so I'd recommend sticking to other drinks.... More

This lodge is simply perfect. The huts and the main lounge lie very idyllic between the red boulders of Damaraland. The interior of the main area is great, comfortable and stylish at the same time. Since it was the only room available we stayed in the mountain suite and that was just a dream. A bed with view over a... More

Breathtaking scenery even in the rooms without the valley view, and gorgeous well furnished "tents", complete with outdoor and indoor showers in a very private setting. Amazing vision to build the lodge so sensitively among the boulders. Food was mostly very good, but would have expected inclusive drinks for the price paid. We were welcomed on arrive, and service was... More

This was among the most gorgeous settings I've enjoyed in several weeks of travel in Namibia. Eight campsites - strictly separate from the lodge - are set out among the golden boulders of the hillside. Glorious sunset colours over the hills beyond Twyfelfontein. Our site - 7 - had a luxurious wash and shower room ingeniously designed to fit into... More

After a very long drive Mowani’s peaceful setting was very welcome, we were greeted by Max and shown to a very well appointed Tent a massive perfectly appointed room with spectacular views. The communal area and restaurant is very comfortable and the food was excellent. The sundowner bar and terrace must be one of the best in the world, as... More
