Having visited numerous lodges with European friends this was such a surprize & treat! Great offering indeed! Superb food & service. A must for people visiting the desert in Namibia! Unrivalled views & splash pool at units. We can definately reccommend strongly!

We spent only one night, but for rest and relaxation I suggest you stay longer. We arrived after a long drive and were happy to have staff get our luggage up the hill to our room. We had our own pool, but it was too cool to use it. We joined several other guests and the owners in the TV... More

The accommodation here is STUNNING! It looks like nothing else on earth and the rooms are fabulous. Unfortunately the service here really lets it down. We were told dinner was from 7:30pm - 10pm. We wandered over at half 7 as we were starving thinking we would be the lonely first people. However, everyone seemed to be on pudding. It... More

We stayed at Moon Mountain for 2 nights, the setting of the lodge is fantastic with stunning views and so peaceful. We stayed in the Honeymoon suite, the room was excellent, spacious with a unique layout of an outdoor walkway between the main room and the bathroom / dressing room with a very private plunge pool at the side.

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

Built and completed in 2009 on the Moon Mountain Top, as fixed "tented rooms" with all the comforts of a room, but the airy feeling of a tent. Moon Mountain lodge is ideally situated for any holiday guest who wants to visit the world’s highest dunes in Sossusvlei, as the lodge is only 50km away from the entrance gate and close to the quaint little village of Solitaire. ... more   less
