It's like stepping into a magazine. Beautiful gardens and lovely cottages with lots of private space for guests to enjoy nature. Also loved the concept of each cottage having its own vegetable and flower garden.
Although not as "unique" as some of Gondwana's other Lodges that we stayed in, Damara Mopane offers a great stop over base from which to explore Damaraland. The layout/architecture is a little different but everything comes together around the beautiful pool area.
Very relaxing and different lodge in the heart of Damaraland. The grassy outdoor area around the enormous pool was lovely to spend time in, and we really liked the labyrinth-like paths between the chalets. It felt like living in a village, everyone with their own productive garden. The chalets were private and the bedding very comfortable, and we enjoyed both breakfast and dinner there. From here the town of Khorixas is close by, and the main sights of the region in reasonable driving distance. We really enjoyed our time here, particularly swimming in the pool! Only problem was patchy and inconsistent wi-fi, but hey, it IS remote so we were glad to have any!
A nice place where we even got the soccer world cup live on TV, even the lodge has no TV but we got invited to the camp of the employees. Good experience. The lodge serves dinner and breakfast on a buffet style. The biltong was excellent.
Damara Mopane Lodge is a really beautiful Eco-lodge. We had very well-equipped small cottages. The swimming pool is amazing, the buffet meals delicious and the staff really friendly and helping for everything. Our stay was really very good.
