Mowani Mountain Camp is one of the finest in the Damaraland region of Namibia, and it lies in a vast and unspoilt wilderness, between the Ugab and Huab Rivers. Outstanding desert scenery, fascinating geological formations and archaeological sites, and an inimitable variety of desert flora and fauna, make this a compelling destination for many a visitor.
ROOMS & SUITES
The luxury tented accommodation is built inconspicuously, nestled amongst the natural surroundings, to ensure minimum impact on the natural environment. It consists of 12 luxury tents, all with en-suite facilities, decorated beautifully in an East African style. Individual wooden decks and open air en-suite bathrooms ensure an open and superb view of the Damara landscape.
Activities from the lodge include excursions to the rock engravings at Twyfelfontein, an archaeological site that offers more than 2,500 engravings, as well as various paintings. Historians and visitors alike, consider it be one of the finest examples of rock engravings in Southern Africa. A morning's nature drive with the possibility of seeing the elusive desert-adapted elephant and rare black rhino is another favourite here. Guides from the local tribes compliment day-time game drives to track mountain zebra, kudu, springbok, klipspringer and if you are fortunate enough... the leopard! The more adventurous might prefer one of the walking trails, between the boulders and mopane trees in the valley below the lodge. It takes hikers to a small waterhole, and a viewpoint. Not to be missed, however, is the spectacular sunsets from the camp sundowner point. Situated close by are other main attractions of the area, including the Burnt Mountain and the Organ Pipes, all within easy driving distance.
