In more detail

Mowani Mountain Camp is a sanctuary in the desert, with an ethos of ‘luxury the way nature intended it’. Dwarfed by the giant ochre boulders all around, this eco-friendly camp merges seamlessly into the prehistoric landscapes of Damaraland – a region of rare, desert wildlife and ancient San rock engravings and paintings that date back 10,000 years. The day and night game drives here take place along ancient dry river beds, where you can see rare desert-adapted elephant as well as the gemsbok, springbok and jackal that roam these plains.

Accommodation is in 13 guest rooms and suites that are rustic yet elegant, with domed, thatched roofs and private viewing verandahs. All of the rooms use colour and texture in keeping with the surrounding landscape and the walls are part-canvas, the furniture rustic. The suites add lounges with satellite TV and open air bathrooms so you can bathe or shower with a view.

The Mountain Suite is the ultimate in luxury, with private butler service and the facility for private dining should you so wish. Other facilities at the camp include a restaurant and a refreshing natural swimming pool, with loungers enjoying panoramic views across the rock-strewn desert. The dining here is excellent, with hearty breakfasts followed by light lunches, then topped off by varied dinner menus – the four-course gourmet offerings served in a candlelit dining room are the perfect way to end the day.

Apart from the game drives, other activities available are nature walks in the surrounding bush and excursions to Twyfelfontein to see the ancient rock engravings.
