Desert Lodge Wolwedans hero

Wolwedans Desert Lodge

Discover Wolwedans Desert Lodge

Surrounded by endless desert plains and rocky mountains, Wolwedans Desert Lodge is an incredible escape from the bustle of everyday life. Situated within the private NamibRand Nature Reserve, in the world's oldest desert, the Namib, expect incredible desert vistas.

There are 9 spacious tented rooms, designed so that your bedroom and bathroom look out over your verandah to the views of the desert and mountains beyond. Desert Lodge is ideal for families with 3 tented family rooms that have a second twin-bedded room adjacent to the main bedroom. The main area holds a swimming pool, ideal for staying cool from the desert heat, along with a number of decks for sharing cocktails, two lounges, a cosy fireplace for the cooler evenings and two dining rooms.

Special offer: Book for 4 nights and only pay for 3 nights. This offer is valid until 30 December 2024. Terms and conditions apply.
