Wolwedans Dune Camp review

This is the best lodge ever. Everything about it is fantastic.

The luxurious rooms are well spaced out with superb views and you feel totally relaxed. Included activities give a comprehensive experience of what the park has to offer.

The service could not be better, food is prepared within view - just marvellous.

Wolwedans Dune Camp review

Fantastic location.

Very friendly and helpful staff. The only place to offer a packed lunch on the day of our departure.

More wildlife than you'd expect.

Can't fault it.

First class guide made our visit memorable.

Welome and briefing by Uska our guide. He was friendly, helpful and informative. His personality and sense of humour enhanced our visit.

Accommodation was superb, spacious, luxurious and pristine. Food was generous and first class, beautifully prepared and presented. All day drive with Uska was a pleasure. He explained all aspects of the landscape, flora and fauna...not to mention the fairy circles! we saw giraffes and kudu as well as the more prolific oryx, ostrich, springbok etc. Lunch was delicious and he was an entertaining companion. Uska's sundowner drive was a highlight of our trip for location, ambience and company.

Dining with other guests was most enjoyable. Dining area is warm, welcoming and beautifully presented. Special mention to Andy Smith and his delivery of the menu in Click language with his special brand of humour. An excellent visit all round.

Absolutely brilliant packed lunches for our trip....excellent, different class.

Wolwedans Dune Camp review

A fantastic experience from beginning to end. Greeted on arrival by our guide 'Usco' who made us feel very welcome, transferred us to our accomodation and the next morning took us on a memorable days drive followed by sundowners on the dunes - we learnt so much from his local knowledge and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

The accomodation was first class with breathtaking views and attentive, friendly staff.

Exceptional food, made all the more enjoyable by the 'click' menu announcments and communal eating.

An amazing place in an amazing reserve

Wolwedans Dune Camp exceeded our expectations! It is a serene, very comfortable, stylishly simple and romantic place in the dunes, with beautiful views from the tents and the main area.

The food was very sophisticated and delicious. All the staff were very friendly and competent. Our guide Ben seemed to know everything about everything and taught us plenty about the reserve and its fauna and flora.

The only small suggestion we have concerns the seating arrangements at dinner table. We realise that there might be a point to the staff asking a guest to sit on a particular place, but we feel that the guests should be allowed to sit where they wish at the common table, for example to be able to talk to particular other guests or - more importantly - to avoid having to chat all evening to particular other guests ;) We know it's a delicate matter but please let the guests choose their company at dinner ;-)

The landscapes in the reserve are spectacular and the whole day drive really gives an opportunity to appreciate them. It's definitely a place to visit and revisit! Thank you, Expert Africa, for recommending it :)

Wolwedans Dune Camp review

We were in Tent 1 and looked out on the most amazing landscape.

Our guide was Anton. We recommend the full day drive around the property with a picnic lunch. It's a 'scenery drive' rather than a 'game drive'. The night sky is a revelation.

This was one of the highlights of our trip.

Intimate camp and spectacular views

We flew in to Wolwedans camp over the dunes at Sossusvelei. The camp is in a remote location, and has been designed with every small detail in place to make the atmosphere feel authentic, and the guest feel special.

The candlelit evening meals were very intimate. The individual tents are located in oustanding scenery with wonderful views. The night sky and the sunrise were very memorable. The service and amenites were excellent.

Our day spent on the game drive with our guide was also excellent.
