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

We were picked up by our guides Jonathan and Abraham in open jeeps at Kulala Desert Lodge and taken on a two-and-a-half hour scenic drive to Wolwedans, located in the NamibRand Nature Reserve. The drive was very enjoyable for the beautiful scenery, rock formations and animals that we were able to see. Once at the Lodge, we were greeted as... More

We have visited Wolwedans in October 2013. Our trip was (well) organized by NatureFriends Safaris and we have chosen "7 Day NamibRand Bonanza" with 2 nights in Wolwedans Dunes Camp and 2 nights in Wolwedans Boulders Camp. The first part in Dunes Camp was perfect, with very beautiful landscape, nice rooms, good food, and very nice and gentle people taking... More

It is difficult to select one absolute highlight in a country where we had so many. We would highly recommend Namibia to anyone who loves to visit African countries. But if we had to pick one, it will have to be Wolwedans Dune Camp. The tents (formally it is a tent, but this word does not do justice to the... More

This is our second visit to Wolwedans (we stayed at the Lounge and Boulder camp last year). Dune Camp is in a very private setting under a camel thorn tree since we have a party of six. The drives as usual are really pleasant. But this year they arranged for a five star lunch outing for us. The location and... More

From the moment you arrive you are treated like royalty but at the same time you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. Stunning views from your tent all 180 degrees of it with Gemsbok walking past you to the waterhole. The food is 5 star with an amazing wine cellar build in the dunes. We love the... More

My friends and I spent two days at Wolwedans March 3 and 4, 2013. It was a wonderful experience. It must be one of the most beautiful places on the planet and the camp staff were excellent. My friend has an artificial leg and he found it very very difficult to walk on sand. However, the staff arranged for a... More

Wolwedans is one of the best locations in Namibia if not the best. We spent Silverster there and it is just beautiful. We were lucky to be upgraded to the lodge and had a huge appartment 'mountain view' with a large bed and beautifully furnitged. The staff was very nice and professional and Linus gave us a great private drive.... More
