Welcome to Twyfelfontein! A member of the Discover Africa team will be there to meet you as you journey to the hidden gem of Mowani Mountain Camp. Nestled in the rocky crags of weather-worn boulders, this unassuming lodge has the most incredible panoramic views; what else could you expect from the dramatic beauty of Damaraland?
Your time will be spent uncovering the secrets of this historical location. Remnants of Stone Age peoples survive to educate us about ancient ways of life. The sheer resilience of surviving in this area of the world will be highlighted and explained by local safari experts on elephant and dune drives that show you rock art and engravings. Consider the complexities of adaption and survival as you float over the landscape in a hot air balloon and dine as the sun sets over the endless horizon.
This experience is not only about history; expect wildlife even here, and the chance to spot the elusive desert cheetah.
Your magical time at Mowani Mountain Camp ends with a transfer back to the Twyfelfonteina airstrip after a memorable breakfast at Mowani Mountain Camp.
Thereafter you will be flown back to the hub of Windhoek.
In the local Herero language, Onguma means, "the place you don't want to leave," an apt translation to describe what has been a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
