There is so much to see and do here. For photographers, first light/sunset are absolute musts. No one will believe the pictures you bring back. They'll all think they've been Photoshopped. But you'll know.

There are circles of brush growth that form circles around this desert. Very, very, interesting. Beautiful landscapes and color changing throughout the day.

We traveled from Swakopmund through the reserve on our way to Sossusvlei. I would highly recommend this route. We did not see much game but the scenery was breathtaking. Make sure you are not in a hurry, the mountain passes are to driven at speed.

Staying a few nights in the remote Dunes Lodge, Wolwedans in the NamibRand Reserve was an experience of a life time. The camp was beautifully set up and all we had to do was relax and enjoy the wilderness. The camp staff - Eric and his team were wonderful and the sundowner and desert drive with Cecilia was so enjoyable.... More

In this area a great cooperation between farmers and the tourist industry has been obtained. The one is supporting the other with a result of growing wildlife and an excellent use of the area. Both for agriculture and animals

A wonder of nature. Everything at this place is unique and excellent. The accommodation , the food, the excursions,the atmosphere, the service- out of this world! In winter time they have sometimes specials due to the cold temperatures in the night in the desert. A visit is a life time experience!
