Wolwedans Dunes Lodge

About Wolwedans Dunes Lodge

With 360 degree panoramas, Wolwedans Dunes Lodge is perched on top of a dune plateau, absorbing the breathtaking surroundings of the NamibRand Nature Reserve. This is a peaceful spot to stay, with the flame red desert dunes stretching out before you under the vast open blue skies.

There are just 9 comfortable wooden cottages, each built on stilts above the dunes. 

Here you can explore every aspect of the Namib Desert, and immerse yourself in the oldest desert in the world.

Lodge details

Style

A stunning, substantial desert lodge with private accommodation in chalets.

Setting

In the vast 2,100 square kilometre NamibRand Nature Reserve, within the Namib Desert, built atop a dune plateau.

Accommodation & Facilities

The 9 wooden chalets are built on stilts above the desert dunes. There are large, solid wood beds swathed in mosquito netting, a writing desk and comfortable seats. Outside, each chalet has a split level wooden deck with built in benches, and you can ask for your bed to be moved out under the stars; we recommend doing this in the summer. For more privacy there is the Mountain View Chalet which is located a little further away. All chalets are en-suite and come with luxury soaps and lotions.

The main camp area is connected to the rooms via wooden walkways. Here you will find a bar, lounge, library and 2 dining rooms. There is also a variety of decks, as well as a swimming pool.

Dining

Meals are usually a communal affair, set around the large dining table in the dining room. Cuisine is simple yet excellent and accompanied by a selection of very good wines.

Activities

During your stay you are in the world’s oldest desert and activities are all about experiencing every part of that, whether it be nature drives or full day excursions. You can also book hot air ballooning or even have a wedding here.

Child Policy

Children over 12 are welcome. Younger children may be accommodated on request.
