At Wolwedans, guests go slow and disconnect to reconnect...
with themselves, with nature, and with humankind.
Our purpose is the Pursuit of Happiness, and Wolwedans exists to inspire a new way.
If you visit one place in Africa, make it Wolwedans.
Located in the heart of NamibRand Nature Reserve, Wolwedans is more than a collection of camps. It is a collection of dreams. In this land of blue skies and endless plains you will find beauty to feed your soul, tranquility to clear the mind, and space for your imagination to fly. You may feel completely overwhelmed at first, but then quickly settle into a landscape and immersive experience which is ‘simply out of this world’.

When Wolwedans was first set up with four igloo tents back in 1995 by the late Albi Brückner and his son Stephan, they had no idea where the journey would lead. Today, still under the management of Stephan, Wolwedans sports five tourism properties, an active Foundation and the Desert Academy – all carried by a bracing, forward-looking, holistic and, at times, what some people would call a radical Vision, themed “The AridEden Project”.

Wolwedans will quietly continue to do its work, contributing in a meaningful way to the conservation of NamibRand, the development of Namibia and its communities, and driving Rural Revival, the building of a Desert Based Economy.

Maintaining a healthy balance of People | Planet | Profit, and hence Sustainability, has been in our DNA from the word go. It drives all our actions, Past | Present | Future. It defines our conscious sense of ‘Being’ and, it hopefully inspires a new way (of going about doing business).

Be our guest and become part of the change we all want to see.
Experience our world
We have a selection of activities to suit everyone but we must stress that it is your choice as to how much or how little you would like to do.
Since its inception 25 years ago, Wolwedans has been guided by an approach where people, planet and profit are all equally important. Our long term goal is to ensure the conservation of the Pro-Namib for future generations.
Wolwedans is more than a collection of camps. It's a collection of dreams. Its ethos lies in setting an example in sustainability and continually fulfilling its commitment to the conservation of the NamibRand Nature Reserve.
