Wonderful Wolwedans Dune Camp

Wolwedans Dune Camp is one of the nicest camps we've stayed in Africa.

Great "bush camp" atmosphere, simple but beautiful with excellent views, friendly staff, lovely food and great activities.

Amazing views at sundowner spots.

Wolwedans

A lovely experience and a much needed 'time out' after all our travelling so far. The 'Angels' were wonderful.

Our guide was less so. He wasn't all that keen on the sundowner drive and told us there were no animals to see on the reserve, just scenery. As a guide, he maybe needs to look for another job!

After being on the Tok Tokkie walk, we didn't feel that there was much going re activities

Superb Location - Wolwedans Dune Camp

A stunning setting. The staff here were welcoming, friendly and although attentive, did so almost invisibly. There are lots of small lovely touches here. One change in the place seems to be that the dinner menu is now five courses so lots of washing up for the staff!

We enjoyed the shared dining experience.

This place is somewhere you could stay for an extra day (on top of 2) and just drink in the views in the hope that they will stay with you forever. The many many photos we took will just have to do.

Great scenic camp in the dunes

Very scenic location in the dunes. Small lodge with great "tents" and service. Interesting guided excursions. Walk through sand from rooms to main area not so good, but you can live with it!

A very special place to stay

Location of the Dune Camp, its accommodation and meals were truly memorable. An expensive place to stay for 3 nights but well worth it!

A special mention needs to be made of Ringo, a trainee, who took such good care of us during all of our meals here. His standard of service and personality added greatly to the enjoyment of our stay.

Additionally, we had a great guide, Jason, who could not do enough for us.

Wolwedans Dune Camp review

Wolwedans was excellent, though we found that, as a party of four, we were always given a table inside looking out at the couples sitting on the verandah with the view.

Staff particularly nice.

wonderful wolwedans

Great camp, fantastic scenery and game drives. Pity no aircon in the rooms and a board walk from the rooms to the main building would have been a big plus.

Otherwise an amazing place.

Wolwedans Dune Camp

Located in a picture perfect setting in the dunes; this is a spectacular camp in every way.

The staff are warm, friendly, professional and enhance the pure joy of staying at Dune Camp. The rooms are spacious and well equipped, with a lovely balcony; they are very private and well spaced from the adjacent tents. The food at each meal was excellent and very well presented.

Our guide, Joseph, could not have been better. He arranged a fascinating morning with a bushman guide who was so in touch with the local environment it was a sheer wonder to witness. Joseph also arranged a fabulous horse trek from Wolwedans Lodge and he personally took us on guided trips and drives.

The highlight was a whole day trip with Joseph around the southern part of the Reserve where we encountered the desert adapted giraffes at close range. The scenery was spectacular throughout and Joseph’s knowledge of the area made the trip truly unforgettable.

An outstanding camp made beyond excellent by the best staff that you could wish for. A huge thank you to them all.

Wolwedans is perfectly located

What a beautiful location, in the middle of the stunning scenery of the Namib Rand. Lovely comfortable tents with a view out to the mountains in the distance - with Oryx wandering past the front of the tent. Food was good and plentiful (5-course dinner introduced in English and the local 'click' language by staff), with dinner eaten together giving good conversation.

Sunset 'sundowners' overlooking the plain from the top of some dunes were out of this world, and our all day drive took us through an amazing range of scenery such as we had never seen before. Getting up early to see sunrise from the dune tops is also well worthwhile.

Our guide, Joseph, was excellent. The only minor quibble is that our planned 'Bushman Walk' on the final morning was unexpectedly cancel because the Bushman had gone to another client - Joseph was mortified.
