Location & Directions

Twyfelfontein, Damaraland, Namibia

Mowani Mountain Camp is located in the Twyfelfontein area of western Namibia. Situated in the heart of southern Damaraland, between the Ugab and the Huab Rivers, Mowani Mountain Camp commands a stunning location – perched high on a rocky outcrop, nestled amongst large granite boulders and overlooks the gravel plains and mountains beyond.

When to go

The best time to visit Damaraland is from May to September as the temperature is tolerably cool, especially at night. The optimum game viewing times are between June and November. The land will have dried out meaning animals must again come to waterholes to drink. Summer (November to April) also known as the rainy season is best time to travel to Damaraland for bird watching as migratory birds (both intra-African and Palaearctic) flock into the park's many habitats after the summer rains.
