If you travel in Damaraland I highly recommend staying at Mowani for a couple nights. The location is gorgeous - so hidden away with views of the desert to die for. The accommodations are the height of luxury, each with a unique view. The staff is attentive and very helpful - if you can get Frederick as your guide, he seems to know everything about the flora, fauna, geology and history of the area. In short - they treat you right and it's an incredibly relaxing experience.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Mowani Mountain CampBetween the Ugab and the Huab Rivers in southern Damaraland lies a vast and unspoilt wilderness area, boasting magnificent desert scenery, unusual geological formations, archaeological sites and a unique variety of desert fauna & flora. This is also the southernmost roaming-ground of the rare black rhino and the desert elephant. In the Twyfelfontein Conservancy is Mowani Mountain Camp. The word M’wane means "Place of God", and here you will find the true meaning of the words – peace and tranquility. Mowani nestles amongst the majestic boulders of this beautiful area on a high spot, commanding distant views over the ancient landscape. Great care has been taken with the design of the recreational areas, giving the impression of an African Village. The 12 luxury thatched rooms are elegantly decorated with furnishings especially designed for convenience and comfort - and decks to enjoy the spectacular views. Three additional suites offer exceptional accommodation. ... more less
