Not far from Twyfelfontein historic sites, the Mowani Mountain Camp offers amazing beauty & entrances visitors from the moment they arrive - we were not to be disappointed!

We had a view-tent which looked over the Aba-Huab Valley. It was an unforgettable experience, especially as we selected Mowani for my birthday treat and to relax during our Namibian fly-drive adventure.

There are 12 luxury tents set privately into the landscape. All decorated very tastefully in african style with en-suite bathrooms & all mod cons! On arrival at our tent, a birthday card and keyring gift was waiting for me. It was little touches like this that made the brief 1 night stay so special.

Another highlight was the enormous flat boulder that serves as the camp's sundowner spot, complete with bar to sip a cocktail as the sun sets over the spectacular vista.

Having dashed around the country on our vacation up to this point, we wanted to find somewhere that was peaceful, yet elegant to take a day out from sightseeing and nature drives, etc. - Mowani was most definitely the place to do it. We soaked up the sun on the wooden deck and took afternoon tea & cakes inside the open-air lounge, before dressing for dinner and taking in the magnificent views from the sundowner spot.

Unique Qualities: Man-made rock pool, carved out of the surrounding stone

Sundowner spot

Luxury tents - with amazing views

Visit during a full moon, as the tents are illuminated by the moonlight at night for the most amazing night views across the boulders from the comfort of your bed. Earily spooky, yet tranquil - awesome.
