In the heart of the privately owned NamibRand Nature Reserve you will find Wolwedans, a collection of camps and lodges with a commitment to the conservation of this pristine natural environment.

The landscape is breathtaking with red sand dunes, plains and mountains and the mysterious "fairy circles", bare patches of earth that dot the land. The amazing views even continue after dark as the desert night skies here are so clear that the NamibRand has been declared an International Dark Sky Reserve.   

On guided scenic drives you may encounter some of the large numbers of oryx and springbok as well as zebra and kudu and also learn about the resilient plant life and geology of the reserve. You can also explore on horseback or take to the air in a balloon or light aircraft for a birds eye view of the dunes, mountains and coastline.

Accommodation is in a range of camps, including the exclusive Private Camp, which are designed to make the most of the stunning views of the desert and mountains.

A stay at Wolwedans among the peace and tranquillity of this beautiful landscape lives long in the memory.
