Wolwedans Dunes Lodge is perched on top of a dune plateau, overlooking panoramic vistas in all directions and capturing the beauty of the desert in a most memorable way.

Building style is a combination of wooden structures and canvas blinds, opening up to the desert beyond.

Wolwedans Dunes 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 sports a private verandah, which connects you to vast stretches of untouched sand. Sleeping with your canvas blinds open is just like sleeping under the stars.

The main complex at Dunes Lodge - which has completely been rebuilt during 2003 - consists of two lounges, a number of sundowner decks, a fireplace, a tea deck, a library, the wine cellar and two dining rooms.

Wolwedans Dunes Lodge also has a swimming pool, which is 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 and relaxing. To make the most of your visit we recommend you stay for three nights at Wolwedans Dunes Lodge.

Wolwedans Dunes Lodge's experienced guides will introduce their guests to the desert's habitat and diverse fauna and flora, and will accompany them into the desert, enlightening them of the wilderness's own history and residents.

Activities at Wolwedans Dunes Lodge include morning or afternoon drives, full-day safari picnics in the wild, one or two half-day excursions or perhaps sundowners on the dunes or dinners by candlelight, can all be arranged. As an additional treat hot-air ballooning, complete with champagne breakfast, are a popular activity offering views of Sossusvlei and on clear days the Diamond Coast.
