Mowani Mountain Camp
Mowani Mountain Camp, Damaraland, Namibia
Between the Ugab and the Huab Rivers in Southern Damaraland lies a vast and unspoilt wilderness. The area boasts magnificent desert scenery, fascinating geological formations, archaeological sites and a unique variety of desert fauna and flora.
In the heart of this area, Mowani Mountain Lodge is hidden away on a granite kopje, with views of the surrounding wilderness. Stylish and comfortable, there are 12 safari tents that have been built unobtrusively, so as to ensure minimum impact on the natural environment. Inside they have double or twin beds, soft cream fabrics, whitewashed floors and stylish en-suite bathrooms. You also have your own wooden deck and all of the tents face east so you can see the sunrise from your bed. There is a difference between the standard tents and the view tents only in the view and price. There is also a suite available at the lodge with a large lounge and balcony area, outdoor bath and shower and butler service. The main lodge has a pool carved out of the rock and a sundowner bar on top of the kopje with far reaching views.
With plenty of guides and just an hour from Twyfelfontein it's a very luxurious base from which to explore. You can also enjoy nature drives to make the most of the scenery and try to find the desert-adapted elephants which inhabit this area.
