"Damara Mopane Lodge review"
It was a green oasis and they had a big pool where we had a swim before dinner.
Nice rooms and good food." See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia
"Damara Mopane disappointing"
However, compared to some of our other destinations, it felt like a rather unappealing place for a stopover. Nothing to detain us here. The view from the sundowner terrace is of a flat and featureless landscape and we felt a bit crowded out by so many other tourists." See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia
"Damara Mopane Lodge review"
Among the nice things here were the food, it was excellent, the pool, largest we'd seen, and the deck for sundowner drinks was nice. We liked being able to dine as a couple also, as opposed to eating in a group.
On leaving we were given a little trinket with our names painted on it by the security man at the main gate. We thought it was so sweet & we wished we'd had more cash on us to give him a decent tip. It's actually very pretty & a nice idea. Don't know if he undertakes producing them personally or if it is done by the establishment." See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia
