Moon Mountain Lodge
is located in the North Namib
in the Southwest
region of Namibia
Set on a mountainside some 7km east of the C19 road and 50km northeast of the gate into Sossusvlei
, this is owned by the Protea Hotels chain, which specialises in low cost accommodation across southern Africa.
So it is quite a surprise to discover that this place is actually a small and relatively upmarket facility, even if once inside there are telltale signs of corporate ownership. The 21 rooms, some of which have private plunge pools, are fitted out like conventional hotel rooms, with minibars, phones and bidets. There is a 60 seater restaurant, bar, TV lounge and a small conference facility.
Moon Mountain Lodge is not a bad little place, but rather pricey and really too distant to be considered a convenient base for Sossusvlei.
