Damaraland for Twyfelfontein Rock Etchings and Desert Elephant
Onguma Tented Camp is a beguiling mixture of sophistication and relaxation, of elegance and the earth.
It is this intriguing combination and attention to detail that makes Onguma Tented Camp, the ultimate safari chic. In the local Herero language, Onguma means, "the place you don't want to leave." With a stunning main building and seven tents providing private, exclusive accommodation, Onguma Tented Camp, certainly lives up to its name.
An atmosphere of elegant dining prevails, complimented by the daily activities taking place around the watering hole, approximately 60 meters away. The surrounding nature lends itself to long lazy afternoons, spent relaxing on the sofas in the lounge, watching the animals go. And when things heat up, all that is required is a gentle stroll to the rim-flow pool. Sit and relax in the flowing waters while enjoying an ice-cold cooler. Alternatively, if a more strenuous activity is required, then relaxing on your patio and reading a good book should provide you with all the exercise you may need.
Like the bush where soft air blows against sharp thorns, Onguma Tented Camp is a study in contrasts. Textures such as stone, suede, linen and steel create a setting that is sleek and modern but also inherently of the earth. Inspired by a photograph of an Oryx on Etosha's Fisher's Pan, the interior echoes the colours of its natural surrounds. Grey, charcoal, black, white, and creams, together with a touch of muted or unexpectedly bright green, adds sophistication and earthiness to the atmosphere
Mowani Mountain Camp, Twyfelfontein
Mowani Mountain Camp offers luxury tented accommodation with magnificent desert views. Open-air en-suite bathrooms and private decks give you great views of Damaraland and the reliability of nearby Twyfelfontein with its San engravings and paintings is contrasted by the elusive desert-adapted elephants. The Twyfelfontein Conservancy has been protecting the southern-most roaming ground of the black rhino and elusive desert elephant. Sustainable eco-tourism and community upliftment are of the utmost importance at Mowani. Guides from the local tribe’s compliment day-time game drive to track mountain zebra, kudu, springbok, klipspringer and if you are fortunate enough... the leopard! The adventurer in me took over at Mowani. Days were filled with game drives, hot air balloon trips over the Aba-Huab Valley, champagne breakfasts and alfresco meals amidst the dusky landscape beneath Mopani trees.
Wolwedans Dunes Lodge
Wolwedans Dunes Lodge is perched on top of a dune plateau, overlooking panoramic vistas in all directions and capturing the beauty of the desert in one of Namibia's most beautiful locations.
The building style is a combination of wooden structures and canvas blinds, opening up to the desert beyond. The lodge reflects the ambience of a tented camp but provides the comfort and protection of a permanent building. Each of the nine spacious chalets (most have double beds) with en-suite bathrooms, sports, and a private veranda that connects you to vast stretches of untouched sand. Sleeping with your canvas blinds open is just like sleeping under the stars. The en-suite bathrooms are large and a flask of hot water is delivered to your room for tea/coffee. There is limited internet. The main complex, which has completely been rebuilt during 2003, consists of two lounges, some sundowner decks, a fireplace, a tea deck, a library, the wine cellar, and two dining rooms, along with a swimming pool, surrounded by a wooden deck and shaded areas. All communal areas of the lodge open out onto decks with superb views. Activities are focused around the NamibRand Nature Reserve on which the lodge is found with nature drives and walks. Wolwedans really should be treated as their destination rather than as one to explore Sossusvlei (around 1.5 hours to Sesriem gate).
