Laid out in a semi-circle like a traditional African village, the Damara Mopane Lodge is a welcome oasis in the arid landscape of Damaraland.

Located 20 km from Khorixas, this is the ideal base from which the numerous attractions of Damaraland can be explored.

The interlinking pathways, similar to a labyrinth, lead from the chalets to the central lodge and swimming pool.

With a creative twist in the decor, showcasing the typical Damara colours and designs, the lodge offers luxury accommodation under the Mopane trees.
