This is our second visit to Wolwedans (we stayed at the Lounge and Boulder camp last year). Dune Camp is in a very private setting under a camel thorn tree since we have a party of six. The drives as usual are really pleasant. But this year they arranged for a five star lunch outing for us. The location and...

During every second of our visit we felt very at home at Boulders Camp. We were very impressed with the way the place is run. Starting with the friendly and always helpful staff.

From the moment you arrive you are treated like royalty but at the same time you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. Stunning views from your tent all 180 degrees of it with Gemsbok walking past you to the waterhole. The food is 5 star with an amazing wine cellar build in the dunes. We love the...

My friends and I spent two days at Wolwedans March 3 and 4, 2013. It was a wonderful experience. It must be one of the most beautiful places on the planet and the camp staff were excellent. My friend has an artificial leg and he found it very very difficult to walk on sand. However, the staff arranged for a...

Wolwedans is one of the best locations in Namibia if not the best. We spent Silverster there and it is just beautiful. We were lucky to be upgraded to the lodge and had a huge appartment 'mountain view' with a large bed and beautifully furnitged. The staff was very nice and professional and Linus gave us a great private drive....

We stayed at the dune camp for the last two nights of our 3-week Namibian adventure. It was a perfect place to decompress and relax before the long flights back to the U.S. The scenery was spectacular. The food was the best we had had at any lodge in Africa. But overall impact was subtle -- no herds of elephants,...

I have traveled all over Namibia and think you can get a better experience for a better price. Furthermore, I did not find the staff very accommodating and the tents are noisy and not warm. Not worth the money at all.
