Wolwedans, which takes its name from the African - "where the wolves dance", is situated in the heart of NamibRand Nature Reserve, just south of Sossusvlei. Nestled amidst red dunes and set against a backdrop of unparalleled beauty, Wolwedans provides the perfect base from which to explore vast stretches of awe-inspiring nature and learn about an exciting variety of desert creatures.

The selection of small and elegant safari camps provide ample opportunity to meet guests' different expectations and preferred levels of comfort. Wolwedans is a place to arrive, to be, to learn and to unwind whilst being looked after by a friendly and involved local team.

Wolwedans is not a 'dune hotel' or a 'one-night-stop' destination, which can be 'ticked off en-route to the next tourist hot spot'. They seek to provide an honest, relaxed and down-to-earth experience free of "wannabe" fanciness and pretence. So if you are an open- minded and nature-loving individual in search of a unique desert experience off the beaten track, then Wolwedans is for you.

Feel invited to share an amazing way of life, and the dream of conserving the nature we live in. Wolwedans opens an intriguing window for you to experience the desert's awesome grandeur and breathtaking beauty ... bearing in mind, that at times, there are moments when the elements remind us of our human insignificance. As much as the desert can kindle your spirits, it can be harsh and unforgiving, so be prepared... One thing that is promised though; in this land of stretching blue skies and endless plains, is that you will find beauty to feed your soul, tranquility to clear your mind and space for your imagination to fly.

Wolwedans Dunes Lodge is perched on top of a dunes plateau some eight kilometers north of the Dune Camp and overlooks panoramic vistas in all directions, capturing the desert in a most memorable way. The building style is a combination of wooden structures, large canvas blinds and windows that open 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 with en-suite bathrooms leads onto a private veranda and vast stretches of untouched sand. Sleeping with your canvas blinds open is as good as sleeping under the stars.

The main complex consists of two lounges, a number of sundowner decks, a fireplace, a tea deck, a library, the wine cellar and two dining rooms. All communal areas of the lodge open out onto verandahs with superb views. A swimming pool has been added and it is this variety of recreational areas, which make a visit both relaxing and exciting.

Activities accompanied by experienced guides, visitors are introduced to the many facets of NamibRand Nature Reserve's desert habitat with its diverse fauna and flora - on foot, by car, or from the air. The interpretive scenic drives in open Landrovers and nature walks with resident field guides, reveal the fascinating wonders of the desert - as do picnics in the wild, sundowners on the dunes and dinners by candlelight.

A special attraction at NamibRand is hot-air ballooning. If a plane is available, scenic flights to the Diamond coast and Sossusvlei are undertaken during the late afternoons.

Wolwedans Lodge Namibia

Namibia is one of those dreamlike places that make you question whether something so visually orgasmic could actually exist. Time and space are less defined here. Landscapes collide. Experiences pile up. Watch a lion stalking its prey on a never-ending plain in Etosha. Fly down a giant dune on a sandboard. Spend a night alone in the desert under a sky so thick with stars you can’t differentiate between constellations.
