Damara Mopane Lodge

Damara Mopane Lodge The lodge at the gates of Damaraland is ideally suited for excursions to Twyfelfontein (130 km), the Petrified Forest (55 km) and the Vingerklip rock stack (50 km). The centre of Khorixas is around 2.3 km away and Windhoek is some 40 km away.--Built in 2010 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. The hotel offers a total of 55 rooms. Facilities include a lobby, restaurant and laundry service.--Each of the 55 double room chalets (with individually regulated air conditioning and heating) sits in a vegetable and herb garden surrounded by a low wall. The rooms are decorated with paintings by a local artist depicting scenes of rural life in Damaraland. The en suite bathroom has a shower. Each room also has a terrace.--There is an outdoor swimming pool for chilling out and a viewing point for relishing sunsets and the star-studded night sky.--The gardens supply fresh ingredients for dinner, which consists of a hot starter followed by a delicious platter.
