2 nights are not enough! We stayed at WolwedansPrivate Camp, where you are the only guess, with private cook, server and guide... Super meals, you can give your wish! And you can spend your time watching the Orix, Zebra, chacal at the water hole 15 meters from your armchair... At night you cannot see them! But the stars in the... More

As we approached the Dune Camp I couldn't help but think what an idyllic setting it was in which to spend 3 nights! Our drive from Sossusvlei in our comfortable vehicle was something that had been recommended (about 2 1/2 - 3 hrs) with a stop on the way - to really absorb the desert scenery. Having spent time in... More

Our first impression of Dunes Camp was wow what a wonderful place and that impression didn't alter during our 3 night stay. The scenery has to be seen to be believed -- it changes with the light from dawn until dusk and as this is a Dark Sky reserve, the stars are amazing. The atmosphere was welcoming and relaxing and...

The oldest and (relatively) most basic of the Wolwedans lodges turned out to be the highlight at the end of an excellent trip. The tents are comfortable, the food and service generally are good. Our guide Teresius, was wonderful and looked after us really well - although large animals aren't the point, we saw 4 cheetahs just running along the... More

We flew in over the Nambia desert, a sight in of itself. Upon arriving at Wolwedans, we realized this is truly something special! It's luxury at its finest. Your "tent" is a spacious luxurious room overlooking the mountains with a beautiful private deck out back. In fact, the rooms are spaced far enough apart that you have almost complete privacy....

This was by far the coolest and most amazing place we've stayed at - and we've stayed at a number of places. At first I was a bit sceptical about the whole concept of a luxury camp but one look at Dune Camp and I 'got' it.. You definitely won't be 'roughing' it - there is a bed to sleep... More

If you want to lose – or perhaps find – yourself, this is the place to come. Soon after you take off from Windhoek, Namibia’s capital, in your Wilderness Air five-seater aircraft, you can forget about civilization. For 90 minutes, you fly over the sparse beauty of the Namib Desert: a vast land of shrubs and grass, with few trees.... More
