Welcome to Wolwedans

Wolwedans is more than a mere collection of camps – it’s ethos lies in setting an example in sustainability and continually fulfilling its commitment to the conservation of the NamibRand Nature Reserve.

Your African dream desert vacation becomes real with us. We are not a hotel, but strive to set an example in conservation-centred, sustainable tourism. All camps at Wolwedans are designed to minimize environmental impact, exploring innovative building techniques and utilizing sustainable technologies.  

Our Collection of Camps nestles into the dunes and is set against a backdrop of diverse and breathtaking desert scenery. Located in the heart of NamibRand Nature Reserve in southern Namibia, our portfolio of timeless and elegant safari camps provides the perfect base from which to embark on exciting and interpretative safari activities or simply relax and enjoy the grandeur of the pro-Namib landscape

Biodiversity is life. We are privileged to operate in pristine natural environments, striving to safeguard the integrity of the Pro-Namib ecosystem as part of our global ecosphere and ensure that its health and productivity is managed in an ecologically sustainable manner.

People matter. We have the development of Namibia and the wellbeing of its people at heart. At Wolwedans we prioritize human resource development, social upliftment, the sharing economic opportunities and the encouragement of others to build a better future. The Wolwedans Foundation promotes this goal through offering vocational training via The Namibian Institute of Culinary Education (nice).
