Wolwedans, which takes its name from the Afrikaans “where the wolves dance”, is situated in the heart of NamibRand Nature Reserve, just south of Sossusvlei. Positioned on the edge of a 250-metre high dune, Wolwedans Dune Camp sleeps a maximum of 12 guests in a totally unspoilt setting.
The sundowner deck with its elevated fireplace is the central meeting point of the camp, providing a cosy and relaxed ambience.
While Wolwedans Dune Camp aims at accommodating those guests in need of relaxed comfort and space, the camp is a more down-to-earth and close to nature experience. Ideally suited for the younger and more adventurous traveller, the charm of the camp lies in its tranquil, intimate atmosphere, capturing the romance of a bygone era.
Accompanied by experienced guides, visitors are introduced to the many facets of NamibRand Nature Reserve’s desert habitat with its diverse fauna and flora – on foot, by car, or from the air. In fact, 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, a walking trail can be arranged, while for mountaineers, a 2-day hiking trail into the impressive Losberg Mountain is in the making, where you would spend your first night at Wolwedans, then do the hike, spending a night under the stars in the mountain, and return back to Wolwedans for lunch and a well-deserved afternoon at leisure.
