What a blast. It all started with a lovely, picturesque and smooth private charter flight with Westair Aviation (ask for Lizelle to be your pilot!). And then we had 4 unforgettable days at Wolwedans Dune Camp. A truly caring and knowledgable guide (Theresius - many thanks!), excursions twice a day, the most beautiful spots for sun downers each and every... More

We arrived here at Wolwedans at the end of our two week road trip and were transferred up to the dune camp. The setting of the camp here was spectacular - we had the best views from our tent/lodge that we'd seen in a land full of spectacular views. There are just a handful of tents up in the camp... More

The Dune Camp was our first stay in Wolwedans followed by Boulders camp. Overall it was great experience. The staff there is outstanding and makes this stay really special. If you consider that you are in the middle of the nature and far away from anything that can be considered civilization the quality of food and service is amazing. The... More

We spent two nights in Wolwedans and it was one of the highlights of our trip in Namibia. We arrived a bit before noon through the small road visitors have to take to enter the domain. The atmosphere was already set: zebras, oryxes,... everywhere! With the red sand and small bushes looking like little clouds on the sand, we were... More

I normally cannot afford this kind of luxury establishments but decided to go there during a special offer that was given during the Easter period. It was the most beautiful place we have visited in Namibia. The service, the atmosphere and the beauty of the place. We also met the owner Stephane Brueckner who explained the philosophy behind Wolwedans. By... More

My husband and I stayed three nights and had a private wedding here in May, 2015. Everything was just really wonderful. It was perfect for our wedding. The scenery is beautiful.

After many years travelling to Africa, this experience rates within the worst. Albeit the setting is breathtaking, the owners and managers have achieved to tarnish the whole experience: staff is heavily policed as to their driving or the number of drinks that guests drink to pin point but a few examples. As a consequence staff is rarely smiling or friendly... More
