Amazing view, amazing people. We really enjoyed our stay at the Mowani. We eat in front of an amazing scenery. It was really nice to learn some words of Damara. The lodges are also beautiful. Thanks for devotion, thanks for service, thanks for everything.

The lodge is beautiful, with very clean and elegant rooms and suites. The twin of Camp Kipwe, they are both located in very scenic spots in Damaraland. Unforgettable sunsets with gin&tonic. Food & service are excellent. We also had a very interesting and formative drive to look for desert elephants, with the guide explaining how to follow fresh footprints to find the animals. Staff extremely welcoming and so nice with kids. I strongly recomment a stay here.

The location is beautiful, the rooms are nice but basic (be aware that there are not walls, rooms are like a big tend with a roof), our guide (Rosie) was great and this is the end of the good story. For the rest Mowani feels like a tourist trap. Breakfast is very basic, food quality is overall quite low, waiters seem only interested in getting a tip, a large group of tourists monopolizing the hotel and screaming/drinking until 4am outside of our room, our rate was all inclusive but we had to pay extra for the water we had during lunch/dinner. By far the worst lodge I have ever visited in this beautiful country. I was very happy to leave.

Great location and fantastic view. Yous shouldn't miss the sunset, it's absolutely incredible, but we ordered 2 drinks that, unfortunately, arrived after the sunset. They took very long to prepare them. We also had dinner, which was included in our package. The dishes were not really suitable for the hotel, which is said to be the best in the region. The meat was overcooked and dry. However, the room was beautiful and clean.

Dear SteFunny_17, Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Apologies for the late drinks arrival, no excuses. I will meet with kitchen staff to sort out overcooked meat. We trust you enjoyed you time in Namibia? Regards, The Mowani Team.

Whilst the room was indeed amazing with all the surrounding boulders, the sunset view was enchanting with the pillow setting and the small pool was indeed very cute, the cuisine and staff at the restaurant were abominable. Beware of big, noisy groups that destroy the atmosphere, From the preposterous antics of the waiters, who made us feel totally uncomfortable by their continuous comments and WHO made sure that we had understood the times they would not be working in order to get their tips, to the ridiculous serving of a vegetarian dish consisting of 3 sliced potatoes with a cloying sauce and this is only one example. Food was definitely not edible and big drama happens if for example you asked for more bread. Off all lodges in Namibia this was definitely the worst.
