Wolwedans Dune Lodge lies in the echoing foothills of the NamibRand Nature Reserve and is a unique and romantic desert experience. The lodge lies on top of a dune landscape with panoramic vistas in all directions. Built on stilts, the spacious wood and canvas chalets create the feeling of a tented camp but provide the comfort and style of a permanent structure.

Accommodation

Each of the nine spacious chalets at Wolwedans Dune Lodge has an en suite bathroom and a veranda gazing out onto vast stretches of Namibian sand. Sleeping with your canvas blinds open is just like sleeping under the Namibian stars. Wolwedans main lodge, also on stilts, has two lounges, a bar, library, wine cellar and dining room. Various sundowner decks provides the relaxed atmosphere of a true holiday experience. Wolwedans Dune Lodge also has a swimming pool, which is suspended above the sand. All communal areas of the lodge open out onto decks with superb views.

Activities

The Namib is the oldest desert in the world and flora and fauna here have developed fascinating attributes to cope with the extremes of heat and the extended drought known to Namibia. The NamibRand Reserve spans 180,000ha and is the largest private nature reserve in Southern Africa. Its special attraction is the diversity of desert landscapes with mountains giving way to grassy plains and red vegetated dunes. Please note that given its relative southerly position, the focus in the NamibRand tends to be on its immediate dune landscape rather than trekking north to visit the Sossusvlei dunes.

Whilst at Wolwedans Dune Lodge, you are introduced to exciting facets of the NamibRand's unique desert habitat - through scenic drives and walks and even by hot air balloon or scenic aerial flights (optional extras). Wolwedans Dune Camp and Wolwedans Private Camp are two sister lodges of Wolwedans Dune Lodge.
