Wolwedans Dunes Lodge has a total capacity of 16 bed, with the possibility
of a honey moon suite.
Nestled amidst the dunes in the heart of NamibRand Nature Reserve about
80 km south east of Sossusvlei.
The particular attraction of NamibRand is the diversity of different desert
Virtually all facets of the Namib are represented here. Expansive sand
and gravel plains interspersed by vast stretches of golden grass savannah
alternate with majestic mountain ranges.
The variety of flora and fauna is as fascinating as the colour nuances
of the landscape which change as the day progresses.
The Dunes Lodge is perched on top of a dune plateau, overlooking panoramic
vistas in all directions and capturing the beauty of the desert in a most
memorable way. Building style is a combination of wooden structures and
canvas blinds, opening up to the desert beyond.
The lodge reflects the ambience of a tented camp, but provides the comfort
and protection of a permanent building.
Each of the nine spacious chalets with en-suite bathrooms sports a private
verandah, which connects you to vast stretches of untouched sand. Sleeping
with your canvas blinds open is just like sleeping under the stars.
The main complex - which has completely been rebuilt during 2003 - consists
of two lounges, a number of sundowner decks, a fireplace, a tea deck,
a library, the wine cellar and two dining rooms.
The lodge also has a swimming pool, which is suspended above the sand.
All communal areas of the lodge open out onto decks with superb views.
The variety of recreational space makes a visit both exciting and relaxing.
To make the most of your visit we recommend you stay for three nights.
