#1 of 2 in NamibRand Nature Reserve
The Dunes Lodge is perched on top of a dune plateau, overlooking panoramic vistas in all directions & capturing the beauty of the desert. The building style is a combination of wooden structures and canvas blinds, opening up to the desert beyond. The lodge reflects the ambience of a tented camp, but provides the comfort and protection of a permanent building. Each of the nine spacious chalets with en-suite bathrooms has a private verandah, which connects you to vast stretches of untouched sand. Sleeping with your canvas blinds open is like sleeping under the stars. The main complex consists of two lounges, a number of sundowner decks, a fireplace, a tea deck, a library, the wine cellar and two dining rooms. The lodge also has a swimming pool, suspended above the sand. All communal areas of the lodge open out onto decks with superb views. The variety of recreational space makes a visit both exciting & relaxing. To make the most of your view, we recommend staying three nights.

We have travelled fairly extensively, and Wolwedans has one of the most spectacular settings of any lodge we have seen. The tents are amazingly comfortable, particularly for a location this remote. The staff -- well, they are simply the best. We enjoyed every minute of our stay there and hated to leave. You won't be disappointed. A truly magical place.

We just want to say some thoughts we have concerning the policy of the Wolwedans lodges. All over Namibia there are expensive lodges and there is nothing wrong with it. But when one make one of the most beautiful surroundings of the country private and only put accommodation at extremely high rates…This is so wrong! They have very fancy words to justify their policy that is nothing more than ‘earning as much money as possible’. Nobody has the right to claim a beautiful place of this size for the few rich. The treasures of mother earth are for everyone. We all live on the same planet. Installing a campsite for some tents won't overcrowd the reserve and gives the opportunity to ALL people to enjoy this extremely beauty. It seems that they don’t want to deal with ‘lower people’.

This stop is a must when coming to Namibia. From the moment we booked out trip, we knew that 1 night in this magical place would not be enough. this place blew our minds. From the kindness of the people, to the landscapes, the activities, the food, EVERYTHING was perfect. We cannot recommend this place enough, it was absolutely magical. We will be back, definitely.

Rooms are perched high on the dune with expansive views. They are large, well-equiped and sufficiently far from the restaurant area to offer privacy whilst sufficiently easy to access after a bottle of wine to mean that there is no strain. The food is excellent and the service first class. Stars at night are crystal clear (best with little moon) and the excursions unforgettable. We were told "not as much wildlife as Etosha", which is true, but the variety (if you discount oryx) was immense. Bat-eared foxes, spotted eagle owls, pale chanting goshawks catching hairy footed gerbils, hartmann's zebra etc etc. Want to return! Cold at night and first thing in the morning.

Room Tip: All rooms are good; the further you walk from the restaurant, the greater your privacy.
