Wolwedans Private Camp: The Lowdown

Extraordinary Africa>Namibia>The Namib Desert>Wolwedans Private Camp

We’ve always been huge fans of the utterly beautiful Namib Rand and Wolwedans Private Camp is the best choice for those who want to experience this ravishing reserve in privacy.

What’s Wolwedans Private Camp really like?

The style of Private Camp is similar to the other Wolwedans camps, pretty open plan, with plenty of wooden decking, canvas walls to the rooms which roll up to reveal incredible views, and antique furniture. There’s a master bedroom with a large ensuite bathroom, and two further bedrooms with ensuite showers. In the main lodge there’s a plunge pool for all guests can use, a shady verandah to snooze with an afternoon book, and an open plan lounge and kitchen. There’s also a lovely sala where guests can lie back on the day beds with a book and soak up the Namib Rand. Although there are only three bedrooms here for larger families who want to be together in privacy the day sala can be converted into a temporary 4th bedroom, sharing the bathroom with one of the other rooms.  You really feel a thousand miles from the rest of the world here- no phones, no internet and no mobile signal- just you, your friends and family, and the wilderness.

What can I do at Wolwedans Private Camp?

While there is some wildlife at Wolwedans really the drives here are best described as scenic and nature drives rather than game drives. And if looking at the landscape doesn’t sound too exciting? Well, we’re prepared to bet you might be pleasantly surprised here-it’s ravishing. There are also some fantastic walks around the area, and for an extra fee we can also arrange hot air ballooning- just let us know if you want the price for this.

Giving back at Wolwedans Private Camp:

Wolwedans was set up with the goal of using low impact tourism to sustain the community and protect the environment. Today Wolwedans provides jobs in an incredibly remote area and funds education to give the local community skills to go on and find employment. On the conservation front the reserve has pioneered the restoration of the ecosystem, and flourishing biodiversity. Camps were constructed specifically to have a minimal impact on the environment and solar panels are reducing the need for fossil fuels. There’s so much more to say on this, so if you’d like more information please just ask!
