Guests looking for the protection offered by a permanent building but the ambience of a tented camp need look no further than Wolwedans Dune Lodge, the most substantial of the Wolwedans collection. Resting safely on the top of a dune plateau, the lodge is made up of wooden structures and canvas blinds and overlooks a panorama of the 210,000ha NamibRand Nature Reserve.
Dusty red dunes punctuate grassy plains leading up to foreboding mountains, creating a symphony of colour ripe for unforgettable viewing and photographic opportunities – all from the comfort of the lodge. Guests feeling adventurous are invited to explore the reserve’s diverse habitat on scenic drives in open Land Rovers or relish the stunningly red Namibian sunset on the dunes.
A series of walkways and paths connect the nine en-suite wooden chalets, built on stilts above the dunes, to the hub of the camp where a comfortable bar is found. Strong wooden beds in the chalets are comfortable and spacious, while the canvas blinds that make up the wall panels can be lifted up to expose the wonders of the desert.
