Luxury Holidays At Mowani Mountain Camp

Nestled amongst a field of boulders in Namibia's stunning Damaraland region, Mowani Mountain Camp sits harmoniously in the untouched landscape, completely at one with its spectacular surrounds. Luxurious rooms and suites call on authentic African architecture, ensuring the accommodation blends seamlessly into the earthy landscape outside, and interiors echo the traditional feel, creating a comforting retreat full of natural, homely touches. Thrilling excursions from the lodge promise memories to last a lifetime, with options including guided nature drives into the surrounding area, where desert-adapted elephants roam freely, and trips to see the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Twyfelfontein, with its ancient rock engravings. A refreshing swimming pool sits serenely between hefty boulders with a sun deck boasting fantastic, far-reaching views, and the panorama can also be enjoyed from the lodge's lounge and dining room. The nearby viewpoint is the perfect place to sit and sip a sundowner as the sky turns from blue to orange, gazing out at uninterrupted 180 degree views of the spectacular Namibian scenery, and reflecting on the adventures of the day.
