Premium tented accommodation found in the Namib Desert

Moon Mountain Lodge offers luxury tented accommodation in the Namib Desert. The lodge is situated on the farm named Diep Rivier East. It is adjacent to the C19 situated 30 km south of Solitaire. Un-route to the apricot-colored dunes of Sossusvlei, yet far enough for travelers looking for privacy and solitude, the lodge is ideal for independent travelers. There are 11 Luxury tented rooms with un-suite bathroom and a private deck with a splash pool. This is the perfect spot for sundowners or "moonrisers". There are also 6 spacious suites boasting all these facilities plus an extra private lounge area for the ultimate relaxation hub. Endless vistas fringed by the Naukluft Mountains can be enjoyed from the comfort and privacy of your own room with its wooden deck, while gemsbok, springbok, and mountain zebra take turns to keep you company. As you are surrounded by this breath-taking environment, there is no need for a television, although there is one in the main building’s lounge. Free Wi-Fi is also offered only in the main restaurant area. Honeymooners or those who want to enjoy a romantic night in can request room service for dinner. Each room has a fridge. Nebula Restaurant is well-known for its delicious traditional meals. It can host up to 46 guests. Seasonal vegetables grow in the on-site garden, which is made possible by a water recycling plant, optimizing water usage. Grab a drink at Cosmos Bar and relax on the deck overlooking the Namib’s petrified dunes. You can also enjoy the sunset from here or stargaze the night away. Light pollution in Namibia is minimal and therefore, as the name of the lodge implies, it is the perfect place for optimum views of the night sky.

Best time to go to Namibia

Namibia is best visited between May and October when safari viewing is at its best. Between the winter months of May and July, daytime temperatures are moderate, while nights can get quite cold, so remember to pack a warm jacket. The veld fills with baby animals during the summer months of November and December. This is also an excellent time for birders as many migrant bird species have returned. The rainy season is from November to April, resulting in dramatic thundershowers and even desert flooding.
