We stayed for 3 nights at the start of our trip around Namibia. This was a magical introduction to the peace and serenity of the area and the perfect start to our holiday. We were warmly welcomed by the staff on arrival and offered refreshments before being taken to our room - an airy canvas covered chalet on stilts looking out over the wilderness. We stayed in one of the suites with our bathroom attached via a little walkway.
As a vegetarian I am always a little anxious about staying in lodges and I had checked with Michelle at Moon Mountain whether this was likely to be an issue. The food was an absolute delight - 3 nights, 3 excellent dinners freshly prepared for me - my partner does eat meat and our hosts checked with us each morning whether the menus were ok. When you consider you are in the middle of the desert, the thought and effort that had clearly been put into making our stay comfortable is incredible. The catering and hospitality puts many of the larger set-ups to shame.
As for the scenery, there really was something magical about waking up and watching the sun rise over the mountains and the night sky was stunning. Thanks to Nick, we can both identify the Southern Cross now too!
We could easily have stayed longer at Moon Mountain, using it as a base for more exploration of Sossuvlei, Sesriem and the surrounding area or just relaxing at the lodge and enjoying drinks on the deck.
I hope we will have a chance to go back again. Thank you to everyone there for making us feel so welcome and for being such great hosts.
