Set against massive russet-colored boulders, Mowani Mountain Lodge’s elegant rooms blend harmoniously with the awe-inspiring and stark beauty of Damaraland.
The lodge’s thirteen rooms are an architectural inspiration that at once reflects the natural elements of thatch-roofs, wooden floors, and neutral tones with vaulted ceilings and modern furnishings. Each of the twelve rooms enjoys comfy beds and open views of the granite hills and sweeping valley below. The en suite bathrooms feature an open-air plan with double vanities and a shower. The Mini-Suite takes the luxuries one step farther by adding an additional indoor bathroom and beautifully-furnished lounge. But the Mountain Suite surpasses them all with its double room, en suite bathroom with a bush bath and shower with a view, private dining area and bar, and butler service. Every room and suite includes a private deck with a table and chairs for relaxing and taking in the magnificent views.
The lodge is located is the dramatically stunning Damaraland between the Ugab & Huab rivers, in Twyfelfontein Conservancy. The lodge sits within one of the driest and most desolate regions in all of Africa. Because water is scarce, this scrubland is home to a varied assortment of desert-adapted wildlife including elephants and black rhinos who can go for days without water. Gemsbok, kudu, springbok, Hartman’s mountain zebra, southern giraffe, gemsbok, lion, cheetah, and spotted and brown hyena call this desert home too. Birdwatchers will delight in the over 240 species recorded here.
