Wolwedans nestles into the dunes and is set against a backdrop of extraordinary natural beauty. Located in the heart of NamibRand Nature Reserve, Wolwedans camps provide the perfect base from which to explore the vast stretches of undisturbed nature.
Positioned on the edge of a 250-metre high dune, Dune Camp sleeps a maximum of 12 guests in a totally unspoilt setting. Guests stay in comfortable tents, which are pitched on wooden platforms. A spacious deck, allowing for safe sleep-outs under the stars and a private bathroom make for a civilised camping experience.
The living area is comprised of a lounge, dining area and an open-plan kitchen. The sundowner deck with its fireplace is the central meeting point of the camp, making for a cosy and relaxed atmosphere. Dune Camp provides a down-to-earth experience and its rustic but unique atmosphere courts the more adventurous traveller.
Accompanied by experienced guides, visitors are introduced to the many facets of the NamibRand Nature Reserve's desert habitat with its diverse fauna and flora - on foot, by vehicle or from the air. The classic programme - that is if you stay for two nights - would entail an afternoon drive on the day of arrival, followed by a full day-safari with picnic lunch en-route. Alternatively you can join one or two half-day excursions, perfect if you feel like lazing around for an afternoon, simply admiring the views and colours which change by the hour.
Four distinct habitats are found on the Reserve - dunes and sandy plains, inselbergs and mountains, gravel plains, and sand and gravel plains. The predominant large mammals on the Reserve are oryx gazelle and springbok. Other large mammals include kudu, Hartman's and Burchell's zebra, giraffe, klipspringer, steenbok, hartebeest and baboon. Predators include leopard, spotted and brown hyena, black-backed jackal, aardwolf, bat-eared fox, Cape fox, African wildcat, caracal and genet. To date 100 bird species have been identified, while work is still in progress on the inventory of rodents, reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates and plants.
