A spacious and family-friendly lodge in Namibia’s iconic Damaraland

Built to resemble an African village, Damara Mopane Lodge offers 60 air-conditioned chalets in the shade of outstretched mopane trees, situated in Namibia’s iconic Damaraland. The lodge is the perfect base from which to explore the riches of the surroundings, including the rock engravings at Twyfelfontein, a World Heritage Site. Guests can enjoy game drives around the area, looking out for Damaraland’s famous desert-adapted elephants, go on walking trails or go mountain biking. Meals at the lodge are made with fresh ingredients from the gardens. The bar and lounge are a great place to hang out with friends, while the children’s play area and outdoor pool keep the kids entertained.

Best time to go to Damaraland

You’ll be relieved to hear that the dramatic and glorious Damaraland is a year-long destination! However, the best time to visit is in May through to September, due to animals frequenting waterholes, so you’ll be spoiled with especially rare sightings. If you want Damaraland all to yourself, avoid visiting in July to September when some places can get rather busy. From October to January things can get heated during the day, so come prepared with clothes to stay cool and enough water to hydrate you during your daily experiences!


Standard Twin Room

The 60 Standard Twin Rooms each has its own garden surrounded by a low wall. The rooms are simple yet spacious, with 2 twin beds and en-suite bathrooms. Amenities include air-conditioning and tea-and-coffee facilities.
