Great location to explore the area. The separate cottages with their little gardens are quite charming. There is a wonderful deck up the hillside from which one has a great view over the mopane country and beautiful sunset views, as well as the Brandberg in the distance. The outdoor dining area is delightful complete with a variety of local birds...

Lovely room (basic but very quiet and comfortable) with our own veggie garden! Very welcome large swimming pool set in lush lawn surrounded by mopane trees. Breakfast and dinner served buffet style and food quality was excellent. Suggest that...

Warm welcome and people willing to carry your bags! Excellent personnel! Quality food and nice cold beverages! Pleasant stay so refreshing. We were so surprised with the atmosphere at dinner after a beautiful sunset. Shower with pipe extension will be welcome. Carry bags back to car on departure will be a nice spoil for visitors.

Being a Damara born in Khorixas this was indeed a very pleasant experience. It felt like I was staying in khorixas at my grandma's BUT with luxury. The lil garden was most impressive.

The dinner is expensive and relatively poor. We twice got meat (Oryx and Kudu) that smelled. The gardens around the houses are nice and are used to grow fresh vegetables for the restaurant. To go to Twyfelfontein one must take in consideration that there are about 120 km to drive one way.

Arriving at the Damara Mopane Lodge felt like 'wauw'. Everyone has its own bungalow with vegetable garden: amazing to see in such a dry country as Namibia. Nice, big pool with lots of sunbeds. Lunch was abundant ; good value for money. Perfect place to stay when you're in Khorixas.

Perfect stop over and you can actually easy spend two nights here. Excellent hospitality and a very relaxed atmosphere. The staff really did a lot to make our stay plesant. Fantastic bird life in and around the camp. It is great that all the houses have a small garden with vegetables. Nice sundowner from the viewing deck.

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
