Our second night in Namibia, and we wanted it to be still relaxing and a stop in between windhoek and sossusvlei. Both points were met, it's about 50km before sossusvlei and the place is very peaceful. We booked a room with a plunge pool, quite welcome when having such hot temperature, the room has 2 tents, one is the bedroom... More

Really felt at home at this Lodge, particularly thanks to Mia who goes out of her way to help her guests. The rooms are comfortable but incredibly dark and hot and a fan if not an aircon would be really welcome. Food is of the simple, tasty, home cooked variety.

That's what I call a place with a view! Moon Mountain is built at the high of a ridge overlooking the Namib Desert. It's good huge tented rooms on stilts equipped with comfy beds and a well provided bathroom, and some even with a small private swimming pool! The managers are very friendly and welcoming and will make sure you... More

The tented lodges perched on the mountain side are a treat and the view awesome. All the staff were helpful, friendly and welcoming. Great choice at dinner from an array of dishes particularly different meats - having said that the lodge was full and the restaurant busy which made for a good atmosphere. Great location for visiting the dunes. All... More

George and Mia made us very welcome after a long journey, and as our hosts were very helpful. The rooms are very comfortable with fantastic views across the plains, a balcony is the perfect place to sit and relax!!

We enjoyed the tents with comfortable beds, private pool and the awesome view a lot! Sadly, the dinner was only average and not something we would expect from a venue in this price range. Would still recommend the place to anyone traveling Namibia!

My wife and I camped in a tent atop our 4X4 during our two week road trip in Namibia. The exception was the night we splurged and stayed in Moon Mountain Lodge after visiting Sossuslvei. Wow, was it nice. Each room is a luxury tent, which is basically just a very nice hotel room with gorgeous amenities and a nice,... More

Individual tent covered "huts" on platforms on high hillside provided wonderful views of the plateau below. Occasional sighting of an Oryx was a plus. The food served was very good; service by wait staff and Mia was wonderful as by her husband the chef. Enjoyed our stay, the quiet, bright star lighted sky. No A/C, but the cool desert temps...

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights with another couple. We were booked into the suite with a private dip pool ( I would highly recommend splurging on this option as it is fantastic to come back sweaty after a day climbing the dunes and jumping in to cool off) the suite is very spacious and having a bath...

This is an absolute must for anyone visiting Namibia. The private bungalows are situated on a side of a hill overlooking the petrified dunes and the open plain in the valley where we would see animals in the morning. The staff was amazing and the star gazing in the evening was out of this world. The proximity to the park... More
