The staff are excellent - really great personal service! Beautifully laid out lodge in a stunning setting. The rooms are beautifully equipped, with private views. Very good food, especially considering the effort it must take to get anything there!

We had a lovely visit. Long drive from the main road with many animal sightings. You leave your car at the base and are driven to the lodge which is literally built on a dune. This was at the start of our trip and thus our first experience with the beautiful red sand classic of Namibia. Lodges were large, double...

This is the perfect place to end your Namibia safari. The staff are friendly and vibrant, the rooms are spacious and well-kept, and the multitude of colors you'll see during sunrise and sunset are worth the visit alone. It's all about the scenery at this lodge.

Great location. While it is in the middle of nowhere, nature is breathtaking and memorable, in the middle of the Namib desert. All rooms are tented which helps the ventilation as there is no aircon. Not much to do but soon you grow to appreciate exactly that. Food was really of high quality although just one menu with no choices....

We stayed at Wolwedans for 3 nights and what an amazing wonderful experience. Except for the extraordinary beauty of this place and the nature, Cornelius and his team went out of their way to make our stay a memorable one and chef Ollie was the BEST! This whole experience made me feel VERY proud to be a Namibian. Thank you!
