Space, desert colours, stars, silence, fabulous friendly service and great food

Located about 4km from the {Wolwedans Dune Lodge}, the Tented Camp is a similar property, just on a slightly smaller scale (but barely). With tented rooms on wooden platforms, this is more of a simple tented lodge and possesses none of the rustic qualities or impermanence of a tented camp. A large bedroom backs onto an en-suite bathroom and gives way to a super-size wooden deck verandah with a lovely view. A major bonus is the notable lack of mosquitoes here so you can sleep with your tent wide open.

There is a cosy lounge and dining area, but no pool. Guests can use the pool and facilities at the Dune Lodge but it’s quite a long walk in hot sand and so you would need to be dropped off for the afternoon. Wolwedans takes great pride in the training of its Desert Chefs and so you can be assured of some delicious and innovative cuisine.

Activities here make the most of the stunning surroundings, beautiful sunsets and unique desert fauna. It can be just as rewarding to sit and enjoy the stillness. The views from the summit of the ridge of sand dunes are across wide valleys dotted with fairy circles and beyond to the dramatic rocky mountains. It is a place of surreal colour, unusual creatures and big skies.

Accommodation:

6 huge en-suite tented rooms

Experience:

Space, desert colours, stars, silence, fabulous friendly service and great food

Wolwedans Private Reserve

Wolwedans is a private reserve within the wider Namib-Naukluft area.  It is a place of surreal natural beauty, characterised by the rich red sand of the Namib, and the craggy creased mountains of the Naukluft.  A ridge of partially vegetated dunes runs along its centre, providing a perfect vantage point for the Dune Lodge and Dune Camp.  Read more?

Namibia

If you are considering travelling to Namibia, chances are you are looking for something out of the ordinary.  A journey through Namibia is all about daily surprises; the impossible number of stars, the expanse of views over desert mountains, the improbable salmon-pink of sand-dunes at sunrise, the ingenuity of small creatures adapted to the harsh environment, the ochre and leather dress of the Himba and petticoated dresses of the Herero, the first taste of ostrich biltong and the excellent seafood.
