Fabulous location and upmarket small camp

A fabulous location in the south of the Namib Rand reserve. There were only two couples there when we stayed. The quality of the tented accomodationw as very good and the food excellent.

The staff (particularly the 'manager') were not attentive and didn't seem keen to please or ensure a good experience. We were only there for one night before moving to the Dune Camp. No activities were offered the first evening and they were happy enough for us to go off on our own walk across the plain for sunset, otherwise they were just offering drinks at the back of the camp.

It took some persuasion to get them to agree to do a sunrise drive the following morning and they seemed keen to have us on our way early that morning.

They did arrange a sunrise drive where the scenery was fabulous in the morning light. The two guides who took us were friendly and keen to help though obviously rather junior and simply drove us a few kilometres to a great spot for sunrise and then back.

Overall, could have been a fabulous experience but was let down by the lackadaisical attitude of the guides/manager.

When transferring to the Wolwedeans Dune Camp with your own vehicle you need to drive out to the main road and around up to the main camp which is quite a long journey whilst their own vehicles travel up the valley between camps.

Wolwedans Boulders Camp review

An amazing experience. We were lucky to have the hotel practically to ourselves.

The other two guests were a charming couple and we enjoyed our time together.

Outstanding visit at Wolwedans Boulders Camp

We visited when the weather had turned very cold and just before the camp closed for renovation. However you would not have thought so: the staff were exceptionally good in being welcoming, looking after us and making us comfortable. Their cheerful attitude and enthusiasm was very noticeable so well done to "KK", Abraham, Hendrik, Ollie and Franz and owners and management please take note.

The camp is set in simply stunning film set like landscape. The cooking and cuisine are the best we experienced in Namibia-very high quality indeed.

The game/nature drives in this area are a real pleasure in such photogenic surroundings with a different mix of wild life.

Undoubtedly our best experience in Namibia.

Wolwedans Boulders Camp review

Uske was one of our top two guides - he was fabulous. The manager Chester runs a really tight ship and the standards are high. The rooms, bed linen, towels, bath stuff etc were top quality.

The only thing which we thought bizarre was the way Francois the chef was wheeled in to do the menu chat - Chester did it first and it was all straight forward - then Francois came in and did it all again in a very long winded and highly theatrical fashion. Tried too hard!

It was most unfortunate that they hadn't computed my allergies to spices - i couldn't eat the starter and had to wait while they sorted out and cooked me a main course without the seasoning.
