Wolwedans has been chosen as the location in Namibia for the 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimwear 50 year anniversary edition. Shot on 7 continents, two of the Swimsuit models were photographed in and around Wolwedans Dunes Lodges. Cintia Decker from Brazil and Adaora from the US make beautiful ambassadors for Wolwedans... the photography is outstanding, thanks to top photographer Kayt Jones, and the jewel coloured bikinis make a wonderful contrast to the stark beauty of the NamibRand Nature Reserve. The team spent 10 days at Wolwedans Dunes Lodge and had a blast with the wonderful light conditions, where shooting is easy throughout most of the daylight hours. Wolwedans would once again like to thank the amazing team under Chris Stone and MJ Day for the amazing exposure that Wolwedans will enjoy with the publication of the 2013 edition on Feb 12, 2013.
