Experience & Activities:

Wolwedans Dunes Lodge is located on top of a dune plateau, offering panoramic views into the NamibRand Nature Reserve. The elegant design of the lodge consists of a mixture of wooden structures and canvas blinds, enabling an open space to the desert beyond. This unique accommodation ideally combines the ambience of a tented camp with the comfort of a permanent building. When leaving the canvas blinds open, you will sleep right under the stars – a truly memorable experience.

The main building offers dining spaces, a swimming pool, sundowner decks and a fireplace – all suspended above the sands of the desert.

Wolwedans consists of four lodges in all, as well as a staff village, and the whole operation is truly committed to sustainability. Water is from an underground spring, 85% of power is from solar, fruit and vegetables are grown in greenhouses, herbs are under the mesh and the structures are built with sand-filled plastic water bottles rendered with natural resources. No wonder the lodges have won numerous prizes as sustainable ecolodges!

Also, you are able to spend your days joining a variety of activities: soar the desert skies in a hot air balloon, learn about small and large desert dwellers on a scenic drive, or explore the desert on foot on a walking safari.

Frankly, one of the best and most memorable experiences in the whole of southern Africa!


The Dune Camp provides a more down-to-earth, yet stylish, experience. Here, six spacious and comfortable tents are pitched on wooden platforms and include an indoor and outdoor bathroom.

Dune Camp Private is located a short walk from Dune Camp, providing exclusivity with the option to dine at the main camp or at ‘home’. Positioned on the edge of a 250-metre-high dune, it has an unparalleled natural charm and extraordinary views across the valley.

The spacious and comfortable Dune Camp Private villa is built on a series of interlocking decks. Two generous suites each enjoy their own ‘Wolwedans Chiller” (a small water-filled silo for the hotter months), a sleep-out bed for a night under the stars, and an indoor and outdoor bathroom. The suites are connected by a central lounge and dining area, ensuring that the two bedrooms enjoy privacy from each other. The villa is only available on an exclusive use basis and comes with a private guide and vehicle. There is also a smaller kid’s room with twin beds that shares a bathroom with the parent’s room.
