My room was like a little cottage with a white picket gate and small terrace out front. Each cottage has a garden as they grow most of their own vegetables. there was lettuce, eggplant, carrots..etc! We sat outside for dinner which was a buffet...the cooked cabbage was my favorite! Be aware that the birds will join you at your table.... More

Out of the four Gondwana lodges that we stayed in during our 14 day trip, this was by far the most disappointing. No hot water in one of our rooms even after reporting it to reception. The food at breakfast was cold and staff could not keep up with the food due to large amount of people.

The only complaint i do have is that all luncnes and breakfasts were held outstide on the veranda. Whilst this must be lovely for most of the year, this certainly does not apply to the winter time - the food gets cold extremely fast at dinner time and the same applies for breakfast.Last Sunday morning we were sitting outside for...

My family and I spent one night at Damara Mopane Lodge. The staff were friendly and helpful. The accommodation was very basic but clean and well kept. The room had an air-conditioner, much appreciated in the heat. Limited wardrobe space, if you should stay for a longer period, it might be a hassle. Lovely toiletries and clean linen and towels...

A lovely lodge where all the rooms have a sustainable little veg patch so service the kitchen with fresh herbs and veg. Gardens atrract a multitude of birds. The staff was very friendly and efficient. Accommodation simple but very nice.

The idea of the separate little bungalows with the flowers and vegetables growing in the garden is good but the finish inside does not match. There were mosquito screens on the bedroom windows but not in the bathroom and it did not close very well. I like a firm bed but this one I found uncomfortable. The lodge was undergoing... More

We stayed here for a couple nights while we explored the Twyfelfontein area, although it was still pretty far (about a two hour drive). The rooms/bungalows are modestly furnished and are decently comfortable. Air conditioning was definitely a plus. The lodge is arranged like a small community with a little vegetable garden in the front yard of each bungalow -... More

Very impressed with all the Gondwana Lodges ; very good value for money An awareness of allergy and intolerance problems with diet may be something that could be looked at more carefully with all staff.

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
