Hotel Description
Wolwedans, which takes its name from the African - "where the wolves dance", is situated in the heart of NamibRand Nature Reserve, just south of Sossusvlei. Nestled amidst red dunes and set against a backdrop of unparalleled beauty, Wolwedans provides the perfect base from which to explore vast stretches of awe-inspiring nature and learn about an exciting variety of desert creatures.

Our selection of small and elegant safari camps provide ample opportunity to meet guests' different expectations and preferred levels of comfort. Wolwedans is a place to arrive, to be, to learn and to unwind whilst being looked after by a friendly and involved local team. Wolwedans is not a 'dune hotel' or a 'one-night-stop' destination, which can be 'ticked off en-route to the next tourist hot spot'.

We seek to provide an honest, relaxed and down-to-earth experience free of "wannabe" fanciness and pretence. So if you are an open- minded and nature-loving individual in search of a unique desert experience off the beaten track, then Wolwedans is for you. Feel invited to share with us an amazing way of life, and the dream of conserving the nature we live in.
Luxury Hotel Accommodation
Our portfolio of camps provides ample opportunity to meet our guests' different expectations and preferred levels of comfort - be it the intimate Dune Camp, the Dunes Lodge, the Wolwedans Private Camp or the rather elaborate Mountain View Suite. No matter where you opt to stay, warmth and personalised service - embraced by a commitment to care for guest and nature alike - are our hallmarks.

We don't promise five-star luxury and nouvelle cuisine at the end of the world, nor do we provide air-conditioned rooms, electric hair-dryers and sliding glass doors that keep a safe distance between you and nature. Wolwedans opens an intriguing window for you to experience the desert's awesome grandeur and breathtaking beauty ... bearing in mind, that at times, there are moments when the elements remind us of our human insignificance. As much as the desert can kindle your spirits, it can be harsh and unforgiving, so be prepared...
One thing we can promise you though; it is here, in this land of stretching blue skies and endless plains, that you will find beauty to feed your soul, tranquility to clear your mind and space for your imagination to fly.

A two to three night stay at Wolwedans truly enhances any holiday to Namibia, regardless whether you are driving yourself or opt to fly in by plane. Wolwedans is located some 70 km's south of Sesriem (Sossusvlei) and can be reached with a normal saloon car (e.g. Golf). Driving times from Windhoek, L├╝deritz, the Fish-River Canyon and Swakopmund are approximately five to six hours. Flying the same routes will take about one hour. If you are flying, we recommend to stay one night at Sossusvlei and two to three nights at Wolwedans (see DuneHopper).

If possible, Wolwedans should be at the end of your Namibia holiday. This way you will make the most of it. If you have 2 weeks, we recommend to travel to northern Namibia by car (self-drive or guided) visiting Okonjima, Etosha, the Damaraland and Swakopmund before embarking on a fly-in safari to Sossusvlei and Wolwedans.
