Mowani Mountain Camp is set between the Ugab and Huab rivers in Damaraland in Namibia. Guests will be mesmerised by the area’s breathtaking desert scenery and archaeological wonders. Dwarfed by massive ochre boulders, the camp is absorbed into the landscape. The camp is distinguished by thatched dome-shaped structures which represent an almost mirror-image of the granite 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.
The main complex consists of a reception, bar, dining room and a lounge that overlooks the waterhole. Mowani pride themselves on the services and attention their staff will give to it’s guests.
The luxury tented accommodation is built inconspicuously, nestled amongst the natural surroundings to ensure minimum impact on the natural environment. A tea/coffee station, in-room safe and mosquito nets draped over the bed are standard in all rooms and suites, as is a private veranda where you can sit and admire the environment.
