Experience & Activities:

Infused with the spirit of Damaraland, Damara Mopane Lodge combines the tranquillity of natural surroundings and the warmth of local Damara culture. Each day at Damara Mopane invites you to bask in the sunlight while marvelling at the labyrinth of walkways, or relax by the central swimming pool. The lodge incorporates sustainable practices, with each chalet being surrounded by its own small garden where vegetables and bright yellow sunflowers grow.

Every corner of the 60 Twin Bungalows, whether it be the exposed stone interiors or the verandas that open to spectacular views, fits seamlessly with the natural surroundings. As the day wanes, ascend to a viewing platform for a sweeping vista of the mopane woodland, illuminated by the setting sun – the perfect spot for a sundowner drink. Then return to the restaurant where a delicious supper of fresh vegetables and herbs awaits.

At Damara Mopane, each day is yours to explore the rich sandstone treasure of Damaraland. The lodge also offers a selection of activities, including self-guided hiking trails and birding walks, or a visit to the famed Twyfelfontein engravings nearby.
