Day 5 & 6
Damaraland - Mowani Mountain Camp

For days 5 and 6 of your journey, prepare for an awe-inspiring trip from Swakopmund as you soar over the striking landscapes of Namibia, heading towards Damaraland. The scenic flight will land you at the haven nestled within the hills of this incredible region, the Mowani Mountain Camp.

Damaraland, adorned with a captivating hilly savannah, is a sanctuary for an impressive diversity of species. From predators like lions, leopards, cheetahs, and hyenas to antelope species such as eland, kudu, giraffe, klipspringer, gemsbok, and springbok, the wildlife scene is a nature enthusiast’s dream. Moreover, bird watchers will be in paradise, as over 33 raptors including cuckoo hawks, Egyptian vultures, and the swift peregrine falcons call this area home. Damaraland, divided into vast private game reserves or concessions, offers some of the most enriching wildlife and birding experiences in Namibia, and indeed, in southern Africa.

Amidst Damaraland’s heat, dust, and awe-inspiring landscapes, Mowani Mountain Camp provides a harmonious sanctuary, blending seamlessly with the region’s vast prehistoric landscape. Dwarfed by gigantic ochre boulders, the camp complements the area’s rich history and diverse ecology. Every curve and edge of the camp provide unique frames to the breathtaking surroundings as if each glance offers a new perspective of this ancient land.

Mowani Mountain Camp welcomes you with luxury tented accommodation, presenting majestic views of the desert. Each tent features open-air ensuite bathrooms and private decks, offering spectacular views of Damaraland and the elusive, desert-adapted elephants nearby. The camp lies in proximity to Twyfelfontein, known for its San engravings and paintings and is part of a conservancy protecting the black rhino and desert elephants’ southernmost roaming grounds.

At Mowani, sustainable eco-tourism and community upliftment are fundamental. Local tribe guides augment daytime game drives tracking mountain zebras, kudu, springbok, klipspringer, and if luck favors you, even the elusive leopard! Let your adventurous spirit reign supreme at Mowani with days filled with game drives, hot air balloon trips over the Aba-Huab Valley, champagne breakfasts, and al fresco meals under the shade of Mopani trees amidst the awe-inspiring Damaraland landscape.
