Wolwedans Private Camp
While there is a colonial depth to Wolwedans Private Camp, there is also evidence of the new approach to the great African safari where environment assimilated into every feature of the safari lodge.
In so saying, you will recognise the heavy-set four-poster bed with wispy drapes, the teak furniture and the leather sofas as relics from the early days of African safaris. You probably won't recognise the paper thin white canvas stretched over a wooden framework to form the sides and roof of this gargantuan private villa in the NamibRand Nature Reserve. Those walls, blonde as the grass-covered plains, all but disappear to reveal the extraordinary vista that surrounds you.
Wolwedans Private Camp is an exclusive villa in a private valley in the NamibRand Nature Reserve that covers over 170,000ha of the pristine Namib Desert in southern Namibia.
With complete luxury in furnishings comes complete luxury in service. The private camp has a fully equipped kitchen supplied with the ingredients of your choice; or you can let your personal chef deliver his five-course creations to your starlit dinner table. At Wolwedans Private Camp you will have a butler and the option of a personal safari guide and vehicle for the duration of your visit.
Private villa; full board accommodation; private chef; butler; personal guide and vehicle; lounge, study, dining area and kitchen; decks and day beds with views across the valley.
Game viewing; birding; nature walks; scenic drives; ballooning; scenic flights.
Game viewing is surprisingly productive for a land so dry with many desert-species to discover including gemsbok (oryx), springbok, ostrich, zebra and a host of birds and smaller creatures. Optional extras include ballooning (highly recommended), nature walks, game drives, scenic sundowner drives, scenic flights and day trips to Sossusvlei.
