I visited Damara Mopane with a large group with complicated dietary requirements. The staff were so accommodating! All of my requests were met with a smile and "Pleasure!" They never made me feel that I was inconveniencing them, even though I was. They were phenomenal with the dietary restrictions! They remembered who had which issue and made special meals for...

Our visit to the Damara Mopane Lodge was our first visit to a Gondwana lodge and we were impressed with the friendlyness of the staff, excellent cuisine, and cute chalets. The large swimming pool was refreshing to cool off in the late afternoon.

The layout of the lodge is magnificant. Each room is spacious and surrounded by its own little veggie garden (or fruit trees). A large sparkling pool invites for a swim when you arrive after a long warm day. This lodge is all about atmophere. Only choice in this area Piet and Elly Crous

The little seperate chalets with their own garden were exceptional. It made one feel at home. The peaceful atmosphere and the happy chirping of the birds was very relaxing as was the lovely clean swimming pool with its sunbathing chairs and friendly service. We truly enjoyed our stay at the lodge thoroughly. The sundowner on the somewhat higher platform located...

We stayed here for 1 night during our trip from the coast to Etosha. Spacious Chalet with airco. Excellent (buffet) diner. Once fully occupied it can be busy, but the complex is large enough for everybody. Nice swimming pool, limited wifi in the main building

We enjoyed our one night stay at Damara Mopane Lodge. The rooms are individual cottages a few rows deep each surrounding the pool area, each with its own picket fence and yard filled with vegetables, herbs and flowers. The cottages are basic but have lots of space with a large bathroom. The shower was my favorite - large, lots of...

The staff was very unfriendly. We asked for help with our luggage and nobody showed up to help. We had to get our own trolley and took our stuff to our room ourselves. Food was terrible. Not worth going back ever!!!

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
