Deep within the Namib Desert, Wolwedans Dune Camp is set against a backdrop of extraordinary natural beauty on the edge of a 250m-high dune. Located in the heart of the 200 000ha, privately owned, non-profit NamibRand Nature Reserve (south of Sesriem/Sossuvlei), the camp provides the perfect base from which to explore vast stretches of awe-inspiring and undisturbed nature.
Dune Camp sleeps a maximum of 12 guests in an unspoilt setting. Guests stay in comfortable tents, which are pitched on wooden platforms and have canvas roll-up windows to allow cool air to flow through the room and to enjoy the spectacular desert views. The en-suite bathrooms are spacious and with a shower, flush toilet and his and hers basins. A spacious front deck provides the space for a 'star' bed to be set up for the night, allowing guests the once-in-a-lifetime experience of sleeping in a desert under some of the clearest and star-filled skies on the planet. For families there is the private suite which has two ensuite double rooms, one on each side of a shared platform.
The main tented area is home to a lounge, dining area and an open-plan kitchen where the chef prepares the lavish meals. The sundowner deck is the perfect place to enjoy a drink around the campfire, sharing the stories of the day in true African tradition. Dune Camp's charm is in its intimate, down-to-earth atmosphere, capturing the romance of a bygone era. A minimum stay of two nights is required here and a day-safari with picnic lunch en-route is part of the package.
