We stayed one night at Moon Mountain but wished we had had more time as we would love to have stayed another night. The Lodge and rooms are stunning !! The view in the mornings and the evenings were amazing. The night we stayed there was full moon, so having a Jacuzzi on your door step just spoilt us and... More

we spent 3 nights in this amazing lodge and enjoyed every second of it. Our recommendation: don't make a mistake by booking only one night there, but treat yourself to a lazy day or more on your own terrace with your own plunging pool. The view and the silence are simply beautiful and very relaxing. Watching the sunset with a... More

This unique, quiet luxury tented lodge turned out a wonderful place for day, and also night for us. The splendid southern night sky observed at the deck of lounge or room revealed all the famous constellations seen in the star chart. Our travel friend, Dr. KS Jung captured an amazing night sky in his camera photograph at 2 AM on... More

The hotel is literally in the middle of nowhere, but so is everything in the Sesriem area, and that is the appeal of it, so that is actually a plus. It is easy to get mistaken with distances and times, but if I am not mistaken the entrance to the national park is about 45 minutes ago, and from the... More

Moon Mountain is special. Having travelled extensively in Africa the thought that went into creating a unique venue has clearly paid off. Yes there may be some minor glitches but overall Moon Mountain is well worth a visit if you are going to Sossusvlei. By the way, the petrified dunes are literally across the road from Moon Mountain. In Namibia... More

Moon Mountain is a beautiful place with tented accommodation. Our luxury suite was beautiful. We stayed here for two nights. Unfortunately there seem to be staying a lot of groups. At both nights we were the only normal guests beside a big group. Due to the large groups the diner was served as a buffet which is not what we... More

We stayed here for two nights in November. The 'tented' suit was totally lovely and we enjoyed the plunge pool. The staff were charming and most helpfully - they even arranged a birthday cake for my wife!

Moon Mountain is a relatively new enterprise and the owners, Nick and Michelle, are obviously determined to create a wonderfully unique experience for their guests. The location, as others have pointed out, is superb with a stunning view over the desert. The rooms are truly luxurious. We were in #1 which consisted of two very large tented rooms, a bedroom...

Driving along the gravel road we noticed Moon Mountain Lodge straight away. It is uniquely positioned half way up a large hill, with one of the best landscape views I've seen. The drive up May require a 4x4 if it's raining, or you can leave your car at the base of the hill. The location of the lodge is perfect... More
