Travelers' Choice
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).

I great experience, Friendly and helpful staff I only had a problem with the dinner (buffet) menu on 3 January - the food was not enough, selection of dishes were poor - not the quality I was used to for the Gondwana experience. However the manager was very accommodating and even willing to meet us in any way for satisfaction (heads up there). GONDWANA experiences are always rewarding - keep it up!!! You are stars

very nice venue , recommend strongly. Rooms with vegetable gardens very novel. Would recommend some kind of activity such as quad bikes as the property seems to be big with much wildlife but no means to view the wildlife. Meals all great

Damara Mopane Lodge is the perfect stopover lodge when traveling between the Skeleton Coast and Etosha Pan. The lodge was wonderful, and the rooms were very charming. All the staff were super-friendly and warm. Each room is a stand-alone unit which has its own charming vegetable/ flower garden and outdoor table area that looks onto the pool. There are many trees within the lodge, so you feel like you're in a mini oasis. The rooms were very well-equipped with beautiful toiletry products in the bathrooms. There were extra little touches in the room, such as a bedside hand sanitiser and insect repellent. There is a great (big) pool and entertainment area. For the bird lovers - there is incredible birdlife, so your binoculars will be on hand nonstop. The food was exceptional

Dear neildrotsky, Thank you for the very kind review. We are happy to read that you left with such incredible memories. The property doesn't offer game drives. However, there are other places of interest that you can do on your own, like visiting Vingerklip and the Petrified Forest. The reception area would provide you with more information. Happy adventures ahead! Kind regards Koney
