Between the Ugab and Huab Rivers in Southern Damaraland lies a vast and unspoilt wilderness. This area boasts magnificent desert scenery, fascinating geological formations, archaeological sites and a unique variety of desert fauna and flora. It is also the southern-most roaming ground for the rare black rhino and desert elephant.
This is where you will find the Mowani Mountain Camp, nestled amongst the boulders of this beautiful area on a high spot commanding distant views over the landscape.
Adventures and activities available at Mowani include trips in a hot air balloon, hiking through the magnificent scenery, and early morning game drives to track the rare desert-adapted elephant and deset black rhino with an experienced guide in an open Land Rover. Or you can choose to just relax around the pool and enjoy the spectacular surroundings.
Guests can also visit the prolific site of Twyfelfontein. This wonderful archaeological site offers more than 2,500 engravings as well as various paintings, and is probably the finest example of rock engraving in southern Africa.
After a day full of activities, head to the viewpoint sundowner spot and enjoy a cold drink, while gazing around the 180 degrees of spectacular desert scenery as the sun sets in the distance.
The luxury tented en-suite accommodation, each with an open air en-suite bathroom and private deck overlooking the desert landscape, is built unobtrusively so as to ensure minimum impact on the natural environment. The stilt-like supports of the tents meant that very little excavation was needed in order to create this special oasis.
The Luxury Room is west-facing and is closest to the main lodge, making this ideal for guests who are not too mobile. The 5 Standard View Rooms have views into the boulder-strewn valley, and the 3 View Rooms face east with views across the valley. The 4 Superior View Rooms face west with panoramic distant views.
The Mini Suite is completely private, and is cocooned in the rocks with granite close-up boulder views. The Mountain Suite has spectacular wrap-around views, with a lounge and private dining area, and an outdoor bush bath and shower with gorgeous views as well.
Much care has been taken with the design of the main areas, creating the impression of an African Village, with dome-like thatched structures that blend in with the imposing boulders which are scattered around the outcrops.
