Mowani Mountain Camp


Set between the Ugab and Huab rivers in Damaraland, guests staying at Mowani Mountain Camp will be mesmerised by the area’s breath taking desert scenery and archaeological wonders. The camp is distinguished by thatched dome-shaped structures which represent an  almost  mirror-image of the massive ochre boulders amongst which they are built. Mowani is taken from the word M’Wane, meaning ‘Place of God’, indicating a high level of peace and tranquility.

Twelve luxury thatched-roof tents built on raised wooden platforms are hidden away among the boulders. En suite bathroom facilities consist of a shower, wash basin and toilet. A canvas-covered veranda at the entrance of the tents enables guests to enjoy sensational views of the rugged Damaraland landscape. A tea/coffee station, in-room safe and mosquito nets draped over the bed are standard in all rooms and suites.  The main complex consists of a reception, bar, dining room and a lounge that overlooks the waterhole. A sparkling swimming pool nestled among the boulders is the ideal place to cool off between game drives.
