I, therefore we, have never proceeded to write a bad review. Energies could be spent elsewhere in my opinion however our experience at Mowani was perhaps one such experience that needs to be noted. From arrival our travel voucher was demanded of us, and our resoluteness that our payment had been made on booking only produced an unconvinced look from... More

What a beauty in the middle of Damaraland! peaceful, beautiful setting, comfortable rooms, excellent food and service, sunset spot was a winner, as was the pool area. Tastefully decorated and blends into the area so well you don't even notice it at all.

Couldn't fault our stay at the campsite here. (Not to be confused with the nearby lodge which is associated with it). In fact we voted it our favourite campsite over the two weeks we spent in Namibia. The views from our camp allotment (no.6) were stunning, set as it is amongst massive boulders and overlooking the nearby plain. Mowani Lodge... More

We arrived at Mowani right after staying one night in the Kipwe Camp. When rating honestly, we have to say that Kipwe was better than Mowani in terms of service and food. Service in the restaurant is a bit sluggish, food is average. However, the views here were also amazing. We had a view room, which was nice. Take the... More

From the moment that I arrived until the time that I left, I had an absolutely superb time at the Mowani Mountain Camp. What amazing and stunning part of the world! Set in amongst the boulders and rock formations of Twyfelfontein, the colors and scenery are alive as the sun moves across the sky and are especially sublime in the... More

We absolutely loved our stay at Mowani; amazing rooms - we had the valley view rooms but couldn't really tell why they might be viewed as inferior to rooms 1-4; as an added bonus we discovered that our room had an additional outside shower and bath with views out across the valley - incredible; lovely food (the best cooked Oryx...

We camped at Mowani Mountain camp at their recently opened campsite. This was our worst experience out of the 11 campsites we visited in Namibia. The entrance gate was easy to find, and that was the last place we saw someone who made us feel welcome. After going through the gate we had to drive a further 600m to sign... More

Glamping at its best! Friendly and professional staff go out of their way to make your stay memorable. Delicious Food, amazing sunset view point, beautiful rock pool, plenty of bird and wild life, especially the desert elephants makes this a worth while Namibian experience.

Great tented and woven structures used as hotel rooms and eating areas. Superb cool outdoor pool with amazing wildlife and massive rocks surrounding it. Its all inclusive as you literally are in the middle of nowhere It was amazing to wake in the morning. The views... ah the views.. Its one of the nicest places I have ever stayed.

Beautiful chalet/camp set in an amazing area. My chalet was perfect, as was the service. I had a very comfortable bed, bath that had a gorgeous view. The restaurant had excellent food, and could not ask for more. I loved everything here and would love to stay again.
