Wolwedans Dune Camp is positioned on the top of a 250-metre high ochre sand dune deep within the 500,000 acre privately owned NamibRand Nature Reserve. The Reserve shares a 100km border with the 10 million acre Namib-Naukluft National Park in the west and is bordered in the east by the imposing Nubib Mountains. Virtually all facets of the Namib Desert are represented on the Reserve; red sand and gravel plains and stretches of savanna alternate with mountain ranges and vegetated dune belts; the area is almost indescribable!
You will be astounded by the desert habitat; home to the most intriguing desert-adapted wildlife, birdlife and plant life which eke out their existence. Gemsbok, Springbok, Kudu, Hartman’s and Burchell’s Zebra, Giraffe, Klipspringer, Steenbok, Hartebeest and Baboon are the main species seen from time to time and occasionally predators including Leopard, spotted and brown Hyaena, black-backed Jackal, Aardwolf, Bat-eared Fox, Cape Fox, African Wildcat, Caracal and Genet. Scenic drives, flights and nature walks with experienced guides reveal the fascinating wonders of the NamibRand Nature Reserve as do picnics in the wild, sundowners on the dunes and dinners by candlelight. There is also the option for E-biking to explore this remote location.
The 6 spacious ensuite tented rooms are pitched on wooden platforms with a generous deck allowing for safe sleep-outs under the stars, imparting a rather civilized camping experience. All have twin or King-size beds, as well as full indoor and outdoor bathrooms (no bathtubs). There is also a two-bedroom family unit which has two en-suite rooms and a children’s sala room with a further two single beds (maximum of 4 adults and 2 children). This is located a short walk away from the main camp. The main area houses a lounge, dining area, a campfire on the sundowner deck and an open-plan kitchen where you can chat to the desert chef, while he prepares lavish meals.
