An breathtaking venue with incredible service and hospitality
What an amazing lodge! The views all around are breathtaking, the service from the staff is incredible, the food was amazing and every detail has been considered in the rooms and the decor. Seeing the desert elephants close up was a real highlight for us. We definitely plan on going back!
Fantastic as always
Mowani is one of my favorite places and even now in "Corona-times" the whole set-up and staff, food, accommodation, they kept up the good reputation. The staff went beyond ou expections, was helpful, friendly and the chef was awsome. Thanks, will come back for sure.

Thanks to COVID, we are not allowed to travel back to Europe this summer/winter so we took advantage of all the special rates offered to locals and set out for a 10 day road trip. I cannot express enough how beautiful Mowani is. We’ve lived in Namibia for 3 years and been to many nice places but this one takes the cake. Set in Damaraland about 12k from Twelfelfontein carvings, this is pretty remote and yet the camp is a full 5 star luxury gem. Giant boulders surround the lodge and each room is extremely private and tastefully decorated. The sundown viewing area is a giant slab covered with comfy places to watch one of the most spectacular events Namibia has on offer. We did an hour walk around the area taking loads of great photos and a safari to find the desert elephants that roam the plains. Tonight we are the only guests -which is so very sad for the Namibian tourist economy- and are being treated like royalty by the lovely and highly competent staff. The food has been nothing short of excellent. Honestly we were a little worried to come thinking it would be a shoestring operation during the pandemic but it has been an exceptional stay. Thank you Mowani for making the pandemic and being so far from family bearable!
We do on average three tours in Namibia every year with friends and family from South Africa. I see myself as a "pro bono tour guide". We therefore welcomed the opportunity in June 2020 when the country was closed for tourism due to the COVID-19 pandemic to scout out some venues that were normally fully booked during the tourist season. The camping site at Mowani was on my list. What a disappointing experience! Despite the fact that we were the only campers, we were assigned a small site where the braai has not been cleaned and the bathroom was also not clean. The mopanie flies made life unpleasant and we asked the guy at the gate if we could go to the lodge for drinks. No campers are allowed at the lodge even though there were only six guests. So we had to drive the ten kms to Twyfelfontein lodge where were were welcomed in typical Namibian hospitality. We enjoyed our drinks in the air conditioned lodge and were even offered use of the pool. We decided to pack up the next morning and forfeit the second night which was fully paid for.At least I achieved my objective to scout out some nice venues for my next tour. Mowani has been taken off the list.
