Fantastic hillside lodge We had a great stay at Moon Mountain. Huge suite with exceptional panoramic view, huge bathroom, small swimming pool welcome given the heat. Very pretty panoramic restaurant and meal as good as the rest! We were simply surprised by certain noises at night: cries of jackals and footsteps of animals coming from the mountains to drink (zebras and antelopes). A real immersion in the nocturnal desert!

New Years Eve Stay We had the most incredible experience at Moon Mountain Lodge over New Year's Eve. The Service was exceptional even though they were running on min. staff. The dinner was one of the best we ever had on a lodge. One tiny suggestion: please consider offering Coffee and Tea in every room. Nothing beats that amazing sunrise view with a coffee. - The staff was so kind to provide us with some coffee and a plunger after requesting :)

Moon Mountain Lodge experiance. The most welcoming staff, regardless of the Namib heat the grounds are well kept after. Thank you to Fessi & Labia, the sunset drive with Hannes was breath taking and informative. The service from these individuals is exceptional. The rooms and private pool where clean and refreshing. I love the toilet seat that looks to the outdoor nature, thats a special touch. Top class service, friendly individuals with a great conversation at each encounter. If you looking for a great outdoor experience with peace and quiet, Moon Mountain Lodge is the place to be. It is worth the drive.

Awesome experience Hi, we truly enjoyed our stay. The food was excellent and the service even better. I unfortunately have 1 concern to raise. The toilet is leaking when you flush, while the floor is wet from this leak there is un unforgiving smell that overwhelms the whole experience. Please have it looked at. Thanks Gerrit
