What a surprise when we arrive at Damara Mopane Lodge ! Big rooms and a big swimming pool to cool of as the temperature was in the mid 30 ! For sure a place to take nice pictures.Our dinner and breakfast were not to pricey. We loved our stay and will do so again in the future !

The hotel is quite pleasant, and the staff is very friendly. I loved how they cleaned our suitcases from all the dust they had gathered in the car. However, the rooms had just been painted and there was a heavy smell of paint. I was not very fond of the room decor and lighting. The light was too white and...

I had a good time. Food was excellent and service good. The fact that you are upgrading, is a good idea. The air conditioning was a problem as it was very hot and there was a problem with it. We had a nice experience at the Lodge and will come again.

Seriously, you can find a lot better for the price. This was the only place during the whole 3 weeks trip where the service was unfriendly. Food is canteen like and the quality not even close to any of the other namibian places where we've had dinner. During our stay certain guests, staying 2 nights went to have their second...

This lodge is well situated in the area, and has grounds that are most enjoyable, including a very large pool with a nice bar area. The updating of the rooms is a nice touch. Sizable gift shop and interesting book selection are good aspects of this facility. The various gardens that surround the chalets make for a unique setting.

We had a pleasant stay here. The rooms are quite different from other lodges - best described as a small estate of very quaint little detached cottages each with it's own vegetable garden (each morning the staff will tend to the crops and I believe the produce is used at dinner). The lodge itself is attractive with a nice pool...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Built in the wattle and daub style under Mopane trees and connected by a labyrinth of paths, the main building and chalets of the lodge look like an African village. The walls are adorned by copies of the rock engravings at Twyfelfontein. Each of the 60 double room chalets (with air conditioning) sits in a vegetable and herb garden surrounded by a low wall. The gardens supply fresh ingredients for supper, which consists of a starter followed by a delicious buffet. There is a swimming pool for chilling out and a viewing point for relishing sunsets. The lodge at the gates of Damaraland is ideally suited for excursions to Twyfelfontein (130 km), the Petrified Forest (70 km) and the Vingerklip rock pillar (50 km). ... more   less
