Located in NamibRand Nature Reserve, one of the world’s spectacular dark sky reserves, Wolwedans Dunes Lodge evokes a feeling of adventure day and night. Burnt orange sands surround the lodge for as far as the eye can see, interrupted only by the soaring mountains that frame the horizon.
Perched atop a dune plateau, the lodge instantly captures the barren beauty of its surroundings. Wooden and canvas chalets sit on elevated decks, adorned with terracotta pots filled with desert plants. Each of the nine chalets boast a private veranda, and there’s one family chalet too. For a truly immersive experience, roll up each of your canvas walls for a 360-degree view of the desert.
Being situated in a dark sky reserve, the star gazing here is phenomenal. There are a number of sundowner decks dotted around the retreat for this reason, but we find the best way to enjoy the stars is by requesting your bed to be moved onto your private deck.
The lodge promotes spending your time relaxing and socialising with its two lounges, two dining rooms and lovely swimming pool, and there’s even a ‘tea deck’ where you can help yourself to hot drinks and cookies at any time, and a sophisticated wine cellar for private dining. From the moment the sun starts to peek over the horizon, to the moment the twinkling stars make their appearance in the night sky, Wolwedans Dune Lodge offers style and beauty.
