Wolwedans Dune Camp review

Excellent guide (Simon) with fantastic topography. Staff a little too generically friendly; could be more natural. Would return.

However had one issue with transportation from lodge back to camp when we waited for an xtra 1 1/2 hrs in increasing cold, after swimming. Were told that transport would be there by 17;15 and it arrived at 18:30. However no big deal

Wolwedans Dunes Camp

The camp was fantastic, people in the service industry could take lessons from the staff. Each employee we came in contact with shook our hands and introduced themselves, and then remembered our names. We were always greeted with a smile and by name.

The rooms were clean and nicely decorated and the view from our tent was breathtaking.

The food was unbelievable, delicious and beautifully presented.

The game drives were great, the driver (I think his name was David) was very knowledgable and an excellent teacher. A highlight was our walk on the dunes where he pointed out all the insect and reptile life on the dunes.

I was sorry to leave this camp but two days was enough to see the landscape and wildlife. I would have liked to have been able to go hiking, that is why I only gave the activities category 'good'.

Astonishing Wolwedans

This was the highlight of our 15-day Namibian trip. The NamibRand Reserve is magnificent. Every turn of our day-long nature drive revealed another vista, sea of grass or small group of animals. The stars were the brightest we saw in Namibia, and that's saying a lot. Our tent at the very top of a dune was spacious, with a big bed and a beautiful view. We didn''t want to leave.

We made two mistakes regarding Wolwedans. The first mistake was in staying only two nights. Three would have been perfect. The second was starting out our trip here. Nothing could top it afterwards.

Wolwedans Dune Camp

Now upgraded to a very high standard. Food excellent as are the staff. We did an all day tour which was also most enjoyable.

Staff repaired a puncture free of charge.

Great time at Wolwedans Dune Camp

Our second visit to Wolwedans, the first time we stayed in the Dune Lodge and we were unsure how the Dune Camp would compare. We were not disappointed, in fact were very impressed by the Wolwedans Dune Camp.

Everything was very well run and it is a special place.

Wolwedans Dune Camp review

Lovely camp, excellent views, excellent food.

We were impressed by the chef's herb and salad garden outside the restaurant area which meant the produce was absolutely fresh and flavoursome.

A Great Lodge in the Namib-Rand

Wolwedans was an awesome experience. The location in the NamibRand is fantastic and the camp itself is luxurious without losing a rustic camp feel. Watching the sun rise from our tent was unforgettable.

The full-day guided trip was great - knowledgable and friendly guide and well off the beaten track in a Land Rover Explorer. Lucky enough to see one of the 2 leopards in the area under a tree before it slunk away into the undergrowth... Lovely food, and great sundowners too.

A very nice stay all round.

Wolwedans Dune Camp review

Stunning landscapes, beautiful camp and facilities. Excellent food and station staff. The only negative was our guide, who was just doing his job, without any engagement, but overall Wolwedans it definitely worth a visit!

Trying a bit too hard to up-sell balloon and air-charters as well as their premium wine.

Arranged a memorable special evening in the wine cellar @ the Dune Lodge!

Wolwedans Dune Camp review

The scenery around Wolwedans is spectacular with pale silvery green grasses, dark green acacia trees and the deep orange sand of the Namib desert.

We enjoyed the sundowner drives and a 9:00 a.m. nature drive with our good guide Usko. We would like to have had the option of doing an early morning drive (leaving around sunrise) for more photographic opportunities. The food was excellent.

Our tent (in the Dune Camp) was luxurious but a bit noisy in the wind.
