Wolwedans Dunes Lodge
The Dunes Lodge is perched on top of a dune plateau, overlooking panoramic vistas in all directions and capturing the beauty of the desert. The style is a combination of wooden structures and canvas blinds, opening up to the desert beyond. The lodge reflects the ambiance of a tented camp, but provides the comfort and protection of a permanent building. Each of the nine spacious chalets with en-suite bathrooms has a private veranda, 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 been completely 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 at least two nights, three if you can…
This large nature reserve stretches for some 200,000 hectares, and is home to many zebra, leopard and baboon. Its location, set against the Naukluft Park and the Nubib Mountains, means that the reserve enjoys a diversity of landscapes, so there’s much to explore in a relatively small area.
