Wolwedans Dunes Lodge is an ideal, and very up-market Lodge for nature lovers who appreciate the graphic beauty and diverse landscape of the Namib desert, but prefer to see it in maximum comfort and style.
Situated in the heart of the Namib Rand Nature Reserve which boasts some of Namibia’s most dramatic and beautiful desert scenery, Wolwedans is the perfect base to discover this unique and diverse desert habitat.
Namib Rand Nature Reserve, Southern Africa`s largest private conservation area, is situated at the edge of the Namib Desert just south of Sossusvlei in Namibia.
Extending over more then 180.000 hectares, the reserve shares a common border of 120 kilometres with the Namib Naukluft Park in the west and is protected by the Nubib mountain range in the east.
The special attraction of Namib Rand is it`s diversity of desert. Wide sand and gravel plains and endless expanses of savanah alternate with impressive mountain ranges and belts of vegetated, red dunes.
Visitors can see larger game species - gemsbok, springbok, hartebeest, ostrich and zebra - as well as smaller desert creatures such as jackal and bat-eared fox.
The 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 makes a visit both relaxing and exciting and calls for a 3 night stay.
A special attraction of the lodge is the `Mountain View Suite`; providing living space in abundance, the Suite is ideally suited for those who want to stay over for several days, seeking private seclusion in total comfort and style.
Accompanied by experienced guides, visitors are introduced to the many facets of NamibRand Nature Reserve's unique desert habitat with its manifold fauna and flora.
Walking, driving, or from the air in a hot air balloon. In order to really get Wolwedans under the skin, guests should stay for two nights.
Wolwedans is easy accesible by car or air and can be integrated into any Namibia self-drive tour and fly-in safari.
