We stayed in Damara Mopane Lodge during July 2012. The welcome was not great. The reception lady recited something from a piece of paper, and everything revolved around paying, signing, credit cards, etc. The setup is quite impressive, built in a Kraal style. Rooms were large without any fridges, and only liquid soap ( I hate that!!!!) dispensers. Beds were fine. Breakfast was very average. Typical large busgroups feeling. Sort of powder scrambled eggs in unappetizing bowls. We requested fried eggs, and received some, served cold. We thought dinner was quite expensive ( N$ 195 and I hate buffets) and settled for a pleasant a la carte dinner at the Khorixas Rest Camp about 20km away. I think there should be an option!! Will not return!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Built in the wattle and daub style under Mopane trees and connected by a labyrinth of paths, the main building and chalets of the lodge look like an African village. The walls are adorned by copies of the rock engravings at Twyfelfontein. Each of the 60 double room chalets (with air conditioning) sits in a vegetable and herb garden surrounded by a low wall. The gardens supply fresh ingredients for supper, which consists of a starter followed by a delicious buffet. There is a swimming pool for chilling out and a viewing point for relishing sunsets. The lodge at the gates of Damaraland is ideally suited for excursions to Twyfelfontein (130 km), the Petrified Forest (70 km) and the Vingerklip rock pillar (50 km). ... more less
