We stayed two nights in the Moon Mountain Lodge. We had an amazing time. The staff is very very friendly and attentive. Also the food was superb (they have an excellent chef)!!!!!! Additionally the “tents” are beautiful and the views have no price (and every “tent has a private pool!!!). Best Sunset ever in the desert!!! Totally recommendable.

The lodge is located on a hill overlooking several directions of savanna area. The 'rooms' are made of wood and local materials and covered with canvas and the rooms we stayed in had a little dip pool too and a separated bathroom connected to the room with a small bridge. The staff was at all times very helpful and in... More

Moon Mountain Lodge. Sorry to say that this place didn’t live up to our expectations. No real hearty welcome, actually a big question mark to our reservation - which we could prove with all our papers – and on top - the next day a long discussion about the same matter and now with a crave about full new payment...

Interesting log cabins with canvas roofs perched on the mountain with spectacular views. We were collected by the owner from the bottom in 4x4s and made very welcome. There is a well appointed lounge with TV and a terrace for drinks and breakfast. The rooms are comfortable with fly screens and blinds, and there was a good breeze while we... More

We were upgraded from a rest camp in Sesriem to this lodge. WI'm not used to staying in luxury lodges so I can't compare with any other. The views are great. You can sip a drink while watching an amazing sunset down below. The rooms are basically very well-equipped tents on the side of a mountain. We were unfortunate to... More

We stayed here as a party of 16 from the UK. Uniquely located on the side of a mountain so everything has to be brought up in 4x4 vehicles. Alexa, Ronaldo and their staff were very welcoming and friendly. The room was a delight as it is modelled on a tent but is so much more and very comfortable (although... More

We spent 2 nights at moon mountain. when we were still driving towards the hotel i found the road very steep and the lodge did not appear as a very nice place: as you drive you can see tents on very arid rocky place. The road is steep and only 4x4 can climb up to the reception. They gave us... More

My wife and I stayed at Moon Mountain for 3 nights in July, 2014 while visiting Sossusvlei and Sesriem Canyon. We had the "Honeymoon Suite", the cabin at the end of the trail and felt truly isolated when lounging on our private deck for a sundowner. The beds are very comfortable and when the weather is nice you can open... More

Wonderful staff, great food and airy tent-like rooms. The room was very nicely eguipped, but a little run down. We found the road up to the place really scary and admired everybody who hauled people and supplies up and down all the time. Must be hard to run a place like this. Respect to Alexa and partner!

We had an absolutely wonderful time! The Lodge is beautiful and unlike anything we’ve experienced before, They are very open and truly allows you to feel one with nature without compromising safety. The level of service was above and beyond our expectations. We truly felt the staff sincerely cared for their guests. The food was outstanding, the chef prepared wonderfully... More
