Wolwedans Desert Lodge
Wolwedans Desert Lodge is nestled amidst the dunes in the heart of the NamibRand Nature Reserve in Namibia about an hour and a half’s drive from the entrance to the Sossusvlei dunes.
Accommodation & Facilities
The Wolwedans Desert Lodge design is sensitive to its delicate environment with canvas walls and lots of wood, yet is still extremely comfortable. The entire main lodge and the nine individual chalets are built on stilts. Each of the private chalets is spacious with an en-suite bathroom and large veranda providing stunning views of the desert. The main complex comprises two separate buildings, home to a large bar area, dining room, library, sundowner decks, a wine cellar and swimming pool.
Wildlife & Activities
Full day desert drives across the beautiful landscapes of the reserve with expert guides are the ideal way to explore this remarkable habitat. Guided walks in the dunes and mountains, picnics, sun-downers, riding an electric bike with extra wide tyres, and breakfast on the dunes are among the additional activities on offer. Scenic flights and ballooning can be arranged at an extra cost.
Note: The lodge is part of the Wolwedans Desert Academy whose goal is to introduce young people to the tourism and hospitality sector. Some of the staff are students who are finding their feet and confidence in hospitality. The service might not be 100% perfect but it will always be with the biggest of smiles and plenty of enthusiasm. There are experienced managers and senior staff to ensure that everything runs smoothly.
