All roads lead to Wolwedans and there are many ways of getting there, both by road or air. It could be part of a Namibia self-drive holiday or it could form part of a three or four night fly-in safari, ideally at the end of a one week Namibia fly-in or a drive & fly tour.
Having had nearly 15 years of hosting guests at Wolwedans and in the process gaining lots of valuable feedback, we would like to recommend, if possible, that you visit us at the end of your trip, rather than at the beginning.
There are many reasons for this, but mostly because on arriving in Namibia most people are, quite understandably, eager to get on safari and track down the elusive ‘Big Five’. To be honest, until that expectation is met, even the most stunning landscape in the world will not touch your soul as it should.
Therefore we always suggest to our guests that they visit the north of Namibia first and in the process quench their thirst for big game. Then to head west to the coast and onwards to Sossusvlei, before finally arriving at Wolwedans. We guarantee you will be in the perfect state of mind to relax and totally immerse yourself in the beauty and tranquility that has become synonymous with Wolwedans.
Below are featured some ideas, both a Namibian drive&fly tour (have a look at Namibian Wonders”), as well as fly-in safari by private charter (have a look at Visions). Then there is the DuneHopper, a daily air taxi linking the Sossusvlei and Wolwedans with Windhoek and Swakopmund at the coast. These three to four night fly-in packages are ideally suited for those, who combine Namibia with neighbouring countries and just want to see the red dunes.
Last but not leats there is the self-drive visitor who plans to do the entire country by rental car (in which case we strongly suggest you taking a 4x4). Here as well, we advise to leave Sossusvlei and Wolwedans until the end.
For guests that are keen to explore the deep South of Namibia, we offer a full day fly-in excursion to the Fish-River Canyon and Lüderitzbucht, which we recommend if guests stay three or more nights with us.
