Wolwedans Dunes Lodge
In parts of Namibia you tend to feel like an ill-prepared explorer just landed on Mars. To continue the fantasy, no small suspension of disbelief is required when you arrive at Wolwedans - a collection of lodges so serene, so natural, they could only be at home in the Namib Desert.
Wolwedans Dunes Lodge has nine luxurious chalets on stilts with corrugated iron roofs, roll-down canvas sides and enormous bathrooms. The views - available in abundance in every direction - are not of this earth. If you take your luxury and privacy a little more seriously than most, you can opt for the Mountain View Suite, which has nothing to do with the main lodge - if you so desire.
The main lodge is also on stilts and the lounges, dining rooms, library and wine cellar are surrounded by a platter of sun decks, verandahs and a swimming pool. The food has critics flying in from all corners smacking their chops in glee; the service and attention to detail are tempered only by a manic commitment to your personal privacy.
A colour palette that reflects the surrounds in neutrals and ochre reds. Allow the desert breeze in. No matter where you look, a marvel. It's almost hard to believe a place as incredible as this can exist. A place where the serenity is so tangible you almost feel like you could take it with you when you leave.
The pinnacle of luxury and seclusion lies in a small valley adjacent to the lodge and is called Wolwedans Private Camp. The villa has two suites and the same leather-bound luxury of Wolwedans Dunes Lodge. Choose to be left alone and fend for yourself in the kitchen; or you can opt for the Full Monty with a private chef and a personal safari. The other lodges within the Wolwedans Collection are Wolwedans Dune Camp & Boulders Safari Camp
