Located in southern Namibia in NamibRand Nature Reserve, Wolwedans Dune Lodge is one of four outstanding Wolwedan run properties, and prides itself on offering an experience that is luxurious, unpretentious, and authentic.
Built on stilts, and constructed largely from wood, Wolwedans Dune Lodge consists of a main camp, 10 chalets and the Mountain View Suite. The main area includes two lounges, two dining rooms, multi-viewing decks, a library, pool (on stilts) and bar. With canvas or open sides, untreated wooden floors, muted walls, exposed beams, beautiful leather armchairs, chests, handwoven rugs, and a light that is either lantern, candle or natural, the shared areas are simply wonderful.
FOOD AND SERVICE
The service is excellent, the food superb. Meals are taken indoors – round communal tables – or outside, on the veranda or as a picnic.
The 10 chalets are similarly designed: simple, flat roofs, and built on stilts. They also possess incredible 360 degree views. The canvas wall panels spend most of their time rolled up, and there is easy access to the wrap around veranda. Inside, each chalet contains a hand carved bed, separate bathroom, writing desk, storage chest and seats. Please note that in keeping with the lodge’s ethos, which encourages a simple, group orientated atmosphere, there is no room service.
For those wishing to stay for even longer than the recommended two days, there is the Mountain View Suite, which is bigger, more personal, and would suit honeymooners or those in search of complete privacy.
Activities at Wolwedans Dune Lodge include swimming, game drives, guided exploration, bush lunches and sundowners.
The Reserve is a member and contributor to the Southern African Avi-Faunal Atlas and the Large Carnivore Atlas of Namibia. Local outreach efforts focus mainly on predator-livestock management on neighbouring properties. Further information is available on the Wolwedans Private Camp accommodation page.
