Getting to Wolwedans
Driving to the NamibRand Nature Reserve is an experience in itself. It allows guests to really enjoy the incredible change of scenery, wide open spaces and seemingly endless vista’s that unfold before your eyes, making the journey there, part of the destination.
It works extremely well to combine a self drive with a flying itinerary to maximise your time in Namibia. We can advise and help you to plan this.
FLY: FlyNamibia has a daily flight from Windhoek to Sossusvlei, we will collect you from the plane and transfer you to Wolwedans, a 2 hour trip. Alternatively a charter flight from Windhoek, Swakopmund or other locations can be arranged to the Wolwedans airstrip. For Boulders Camp the airstrip is Aandster (a 10-minute flight from the Wolwedans airstrip).
DRIVE: Namibia is driving country with a good network of well-maintained gravel roads. From either Windhoek or Swakopmund it is a scenic 5 hour drive via Solataire, stop for the famous apple pie or an ice cream, and continue onto Sesriem. Fill up with fuel at the Sesriem Petrol Station. From this point it is a 2.5 hour drive to Wolwedans Village reception. This drive is on good dirt roads.
COMBINE WITH SOSSUSVLEI: Sesriem is where the entrance to Sossusvlei and Deadvlei is. There are a number of hotels, lodges and camp sites at this location. At Sesriem you enter the park gate and it is another 60km’s on a tar road to Sossusvlei and Dead vlei.
We can recommend where you should spend a night in this area to visit the iconic sand dunes and Dead vlei before proceeding to us to experience one of the remotest corners on earth.
