Wolwedans Dune Lodge

NamibRand Nature Reserve, Namibia


Stay at Wolwedans Dune Lodge

Wolwedans is a collection of camps nestled in the vast NamibRand Nature Reserve, who’s ethos is focused on sustainability and the conservation of the wildlife and ecosystem of its dramatic Namibian setting.

Discover the otherworldly landscape by scenic drive, on foot or horseback, tracking and tracing desert-adapted animals and stopping for wild picnics or sundowners on the dunes. Or appreciate the vastness from the air, with silent balloon rides or scenic flights to discover the wild Atlantic Coast. End your days with a bush dinner by candlelight, enjoying food from their organic gardens and paired with local and South African wines.

Take the time during your stay to learn about Wolwedans’ sustainability projects, from fuelling electricity at the camp solely on solar power, to setting up a local laundry that reduces the reliance on natural resources and provides local employment. They’re committed to the four C’s of Community, Conservation, Culture and Commerce, protecting endemic species and launching a vast range of community projects.

The Dunes Lodge itself is one of Wolwedans’ collection of small camps, perched on top of a dune plateau, overlooking panoramic vistas in all directions and capturing the beauty of the desert in a most memorable way.

The building style is a combination of wooden structures and canvas blinds, opening 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 has an en-suite bathroom and a private veranda, which connects you to vast stretches of untouched sand. Sleeping with your canvas blinds open is just like sleeping under the stars. The 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.

All meals at the Dunes Lodge are a lavish, but unpretentious affair. They always exude a sense of occasion with elegant table settings, candlelight and exuberant menu announcements in the local Nama language. They have a reputation for serving the best meals on the Namibian safari circuit.

The journey to Namibia and Serra Cafema was the best trip I’ve ever done. I really loved the remote camp, the way we travelled there (flying over the endless dunes and amazing coastline in a private plane) and the infinite hospitality, knowledge and passion of the whole team. We enjoyed a lot of activities: we visited the Himba people, which was the experience of a lifetime, took a quad bike tour and boat tour. For my birthday, they organised a private dinner at a beautiful, remote location.
