Peaceful and relaxing with stunning views

Our review is influenced by having been upgraded to the Suite when we had booked a mini suite. The suite comprises three huts and an area of decking. The whole suite was completely private and for our access only. Truly special and luxurious!

The welcome was fine, and the staff were very friendly. One of them very helpfully fixed our one and only puncture. Overall it was very comfortable with great views.There was a lovely spot for sundowners.

Only one of us went on the early morning drive to see the desert elephants - the guide was very knowledgeable. The afternoon trip was to Twyfelfontain but we actually drove there ourselves and saved a lot of money. You have to use a local guide there anyway and so there was no real benefit in going on the 'official' tour.

If anything the staff were too attentive. It becomes a bit annoying when your conversation is interrupted time and again by someone asking if everything is alright!

Beautiful lodge

This was a beautifully designed lodge that blended in extremely well with its surroundings and with a fantastic pool. Good excursions to the rock paintings and to the desert elephants.

Great Camp

Our only gripe was that there were a large group on our first night and then a group of 10 travel agents on an educational which rather spoilt the ambience.

They were a little roudy at times in a place where calm and peace was called for.

Expressed our views to Zane the general manager who was going to take it further.

Otherwise pool area delightful and accommodation great.

Perfect Sundowner spot - Wonderful!

We thoroughly enjoyed everything about our time at Mowani. Its unique design, stunning views, engaging staff, beautiful decor in the communal areas and rooms, perfect pool and view all topped off with a rather spectacular sundowner spot and superb food.

Our superior view room was very comfortable, beautifully presented and well equipped and the views and peace amazing, although the insects slightly affected our enjoyment of sitting on our terrace.

We took a nature drive and were fortunate to see some desert elephants. An enjoyable morning with a good and knowledgable guide. There was no wi-fi available in the entire lodge. This was not a problem for us but maybe for some.

The only negative was unfortunately being witness to an unpleasant altercation at reception by a guest at the campsite who was loudly and rudely objecting to not being permitted use of the facilities at the lodge, and pointing at guests in her earshot telling them how privileged they were. I agree we felt extremely privileged to be able to enjoy Mowani so thank you Expert Africa for booking it for us.

According to reception this is not an uncommon mis understanding by camp guests so they may want to clarify this or not make exceptions depending on occupancy.

For us there was nothing not to like with the exception of leaving! Thank you for a very special stay.

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.
