Wolwedans Dunes Lodge - NamibRand Nature Reserve, Namibia

Book Your Trip

Rooms & Suites: 8 Chalets & 1 Suite

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.

Situated in the heart of NamibRand, a private nature reserve measuring some 185.000 hectares on the doorstep of Sossusvlei — the Dunes Lodge aims at providing a unique experience close to nature, yet without compromising comfort and style. The entire lodge is constructed on wooden platforms and overlooks panoramic vistas in all directions. 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 - which has completely been rebuilt during 2003 - 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 will be added during 2004 and it is this variety of recreational areas, which make a visit both relaxing and exciting and calls for a 3 night stay.
