Wolwedans is by no means a cheap destination, it can’t be. When it comes to rates and value for money, there is one aspect we’d like you to bear in mind when considering a visit. An impressive part of what you pay at Wolwedans, goes into our drive to become a highly sustainable and responsible tourism enterprise (see sustainability button).
Roughly 60% of the NamibRand Nature Reserve’s up-keep (conservation) is contributed by Wolwedans through park fees collected. Wolwedans invests substantially in green technology (solar), and, with 75 students in our schools/system annually (nice and Wolwedans Desert Academy), we are very active on the vocational training front (benefitting the community), just to name a few.
The point is,Wolwedanshas more in stall than selling beds and providing the best possible service.Wolwedans does not only benefit the tourist and the shareholders. By visiting, you significantly contribute towards the conservation of NamibRand and the wellbeing of the people. Incidentally Wolwedans has, despite being commercially viable business, not paid a dividend to its shareholders since inception some 16 years ago. All earnings are ploughed back. Food for thought.
Our nomination as one of three global finalists in with the 2012 Tourism for Tomorrow awards (category tourism/conservation) speaks for itself.
Wolwedans Dunes Lodge
Wolwedans has introduced a DBB (dinner, bed and breakfast) rate for one-night stay-over visitors at the Dunes Lodge. Also, discounted rates for multiple night stays have been introduced. The longer you stay, he better it gets. These new rates where only introduced in 2012, so chances are travel agents or tour operators are still publishing old rates in their 2012 brochure and catalogues (which got printed in 2011). All agents and operators have access to the new Dunes Lodge rate structure, so just enquirewith your trusted agent for the ‘new’ rates before concluding that theymight over-charge. Chances are not all agents are aware of the new rates.
We invite you to see Wolwedans for what it really is: a place to arrive, to be, to learn and unwind... read more
