Located in the vast expanse of the NamibRand Nature Reserve, Wolwedans Dune Camp is set on the edge of a 250-metre high dune in a pristine wilderness setting.
The camp sleeps a maximum of 12 guests in comfortable and spacious tents, which are pitched on wooden platforms and include a private bathroom. A generous deck allows for safe sleep-outs under the stars, imparting a rather civilized camping experience. The main tent houses a lounge, dining area and an open-plan kitchen where you can chat to the desert chef, while he prepares lavish meals. Enjoy a cold drink around the campfire on the sundowner deck, and swap stories with fellow guests. The charm of this camp lies in its tranquil, intimate atmosphere, capturing the romance of a bygone era.
Activities on offer at Wolwedans include morning, afternoon and sundowner safaris, where you can discover the small and large desert inhabitants and their quest for survival in this unforgiving environment, as well as walking safaris, scenic flights, and a massage service (seasonal).
Note: minimum two night stay.
We can also tailor make your trip to stay at the neighbouring Wolwedans Dune Lodge, which combines the ambience of a tented camp with the comfort of a permanent lodge.
