A selection of small and elegant safari camps, Wolwedans, which takes its name from the African "where the wolves dance", is situated in the heart of Namib Rand Nature Reserve, just south of Sossusvlei, about 400 km southwest of Windhoek. Nestled amidst red dunes and set against a backdrop of unparalleled beauty, Wolwedans provides the perfect base from which to explore vast stretches of awe-inspiring nature and learn about an exciting variety of desert creatures.

From NAD 2,855 per person/night, sharing, fully inclusive.

Wolwedans Dunes Lodge
The Dunes Lodge is perched on top of a dune plateau with panoramic views in all directions, capturing the desert in a most memorable way. The building style is a combination of wooden structures with large canvas blinds.

Wolwedans Private Camp
Situated in the quiet seclusion of an idyllic valley, this splendid suite caters exclusively for four guests. It is the perfect getaway for honeymooners or individuals seeking uncompromising privacy and solitude. Private Camp – your “home from home” – comprises two spacious bedrooms, two bathrooms, a veranda and the lounge, combining a study, the living room, a dining area and a fully equipped open plan kitchen. Guided activities are not part of the package and the emphasis is on pure relaxation, but the Private Camp can also be booked with all services and activities included – that is, a private chef and your personal field guide. It is recommended that guests who have not been with Wolwedans before book the Private Camp in combination with a night at the Lodge, joining some of the activities before seeking total seclusion.

Accompanied by experienced guides, visitors are introduced to the many facets of Namib Rand Nature Reserve's desert habitat with its diverse fauna and flora – on foot, by car, or from the air. The interpretive scenic drives in open Land Rovers and nature walks with resident field guides reveal the fascinating wonders of the desert - as do picnics in the wild, sundowners on the dunes and dinners by candlelight. A special attraction at NamibRand is hot-air ballooning. If a plane is available, scenic flights to the Diamond coast and Sossusvlei are undertaken during the late afternoons. For hiking enthusiasts walking treks can be arranged.

Best time to travel
Although you can travel to Namibia throughout the year, the best travel time is April to September. By day, the temperatures are at 25° C and the sky is a brilliant blue. By night, it cools down. During the winter months (July to September) it is rarely colder than 20° C. The Namibian summer (October to February) is dry and hot.

Getting there
The Namib Rand Nature Reserve can be reached with any car. The driving time from Windhoek, Swakopmund, Lüderitz and Keetmanshoop is approximately five to six hours (travelling at leisure). The DuneHopper, which can easily be compared with an air taxi, departs daily from Windhoek and Swakopmund to the southern Namib region.
