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

My husband & I along with friends Tom & Valerie had pre booked to stayed at this campsite. We were travelling through Namibia and going to Etosha National Park. Our stay here was a lovely experience, certainly back to nature and a place to really chill out. We had brought all our necessary food and beers with us and after... More

Mowani was a very pleasant surprise during our 15-day trip around Namibia. With most other places we stayed were very dry and brown, the green and rust-coloured desert mountain setting at Mowani was a welcome change. We were welcomed immediately upon arrival in the amazing lounge area, open on all sides with amazing views over the valley below. The evening... More

This camp is considered to be one of the very best in Namibia. It is certainly in a very beautiful location, and the rooms and facilities are of a very high standard. That having been said, if it hadn't been for our wonderful excursions under the watchful eye of Bawden, I'm not sure I would rate this lodge any higher... More

Well out in the wilds, but well worth a stay. Good food, good accommodation in a half tent, with tea maker but no fridge. Excellently situated, we could sit on our balcony and gaze over the valley below. We took the drive to see the desert adapted elephants (at very close range). Some tents have views, ours, number 4 did.... More

The accommodation is spacious (stayed in a view room/tent. We had room 1 view of the valley, plenty of room and very comfortable, with outside private secluded verandah. Enjoyed sundowners both evenings a great way to view sunset and catch up with others re: stories. Had a great guide (Borden) for the early start to find desert elephants, saw a... More

Mowani Mountain Camp has a camping site which we discovered by chance after very long drive from Purros. It is very well maintained camping site with one of the most astonishing and dramatic scenery I saw in Namibia. Lodge area looks gorgeous. The staff was very helpful, they managed to find for us a phone number we needed. Recommended!

We stayed here during our 20 day excursion of Namibia. Of the 9 lodges we stayed at this was the only one where we were not greeted by the manager during our 3 night stay, and felt it was impersonal. It was like you were staying at a large hotel. Yes the rooms and the location is exceptional. The food... More
