Mowani Mountain Camp

Fantastic place to stay with a great sundowner viewing point just a few steps from the main area (no need to get in a car! yay!) Did a game drive and saw desert elephants which was well worth while.

Mowani Mountain Camp review

The mountain view suite was superb, it was comfortable, had great views and very private. It was like having our own private thatched villa.

Mowani Mountain Camp review

Spectacular site and great food.

But did not deal very well with a relatively minor issue (bird in room, change of bed sheets needed).

Rooms badly need mosquito nets . Lots of bites.

Mowani Mountain Camp review

This place is special. We had "The Suite" for one night while travelling through Damaraland. The suite looks over the valley below and is absolutely private. There is an outside bath and shower as well as an inside bathroom. The view from the huge bed is stunning as is the view from the lounge and deck area.

The meals were excellent as were all the staff here.

We went on the afternoon drive the Burnt Mountain and the stone etching which was very good. We did not have time to do the morning excursion to see the Desert Elephants which was disappointing.

There was not a thing that I could say was bad or needed improving here.

Mowani Camp is just a great place

What a fantastic place, but then guess the price reflects this. The staff are well trained, although not in your face. Our room was probably in the best position out of them all and we had our own private sundowner every night, our only visitors being the rock hyrax and a little mouse that shared the room with us, but then we were in the middle of Africa and it was no problem.

We stayed 2 nights, the first day we just chose to enjoy the surroundings and the second day we opted for the early morning nature drive, the mission to find the desert elephants, which we did and was well worth the somewhat chilly air experienced in the open Safari vehicle wrapped in blankets. Next stop our driver/guide took us into Damaraland for a coffee stop. This was such a breathtaking experience and you would never know this landscape existed from the road. Coffee and biscuits over with we returned to the lodge happy travellers.

The food was well above African cussine, although they do serve quite a lot of game which we always opted for something else. Whilst there my wife discovered a new drink......there welcome drink with a shot of vodka, topped up with ice, cool and refreshing and very moreish!

Desert Elephants at Mowani

A canvas walled, thatched roof lodge in dramatic rocky environment. Some confusion here as we could see signs to superior rooms yet not in the direction our room was in. Only the next day did we conclude that Superior room and superior view room was different. We had the latter and at least they did reflect the title. sitting on cushions on one of the large rocks watching the sunset drinking g&t was one of the highlights here.

On the second day we were up early in search of Desert adapted elephants and almost immediately found a small herd with a few youngsters among them. We were able to get up close for an hour and a half or so until they disappeared of into the boulders where we could not follow. there was a mouse in the room gnawing its way into the milk cartons when we got back - it scuttled off and we didn't see it again. Our companions had a similar problem, didn't see it but it got into their bags and chewed a few things - there's a lesson, zip up bags when not in the rooms.

One problem we had on returning to our lodge after dinner the light left on to guide us back was covered in moths and as soon as we were inside a put a light on they were all inside. Not the most dangerous situation but bothersome with them flapping all round you - had to put the light out a bunk down. The problem seemed to be that there was a 25cm gap between the walls and the roof that was completely open where in other lodges with a similar gap there were insect nets. Otherwise everything was excellent

Desert elephants

Beautiful lodge in fabulous location.

We drove along the Salt Road to Torra Bay to get here - it is absolutely fine to drive. Saw some shipwrecks along the way!

Lovely pool, delicious food.

Went to see the rock engravings at Twelfelfontein - fascinating and well worth a visit.
