There are numerous ways to reach Wolwedans from all over Namibia, with both flying and driving options available. 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.
Private Charters: Charter flights from Windhoek, Swakopmund or other locations in Namibia can be arranged to both the Wolwedans airstrip (maximum 20 minute drive to Dune Camp, Plains Camp and Mountain View Suite) and Keerweder Airstrip (a 45-minute transfer to the Wolwedans Village Reception and then the onward transfer to camp). For Boulders Camp the airstrip is Aandster, a 30-minute drive to camp.
Tiras Taxis: Tiras Taxis offers a seat-in rate from Windhoek Eros Airport (the domestic airport) to the Sossusvlei area (either Wolwedans or Keerweder Airstrip) on a daily basis. The taxi departs in the morning and returns in the afternoon. Please contact us for rates.
Scheduled Flights: FlyNamibia flies from Windhoek & Swakopmund to Keerweder Airstrip, a 45-minute drive from Wolwedans. We will collect you from the plane and transfer you to the reception, before your onward journey to your camp/lodge. The flights are currently on alternate days in a clockwise and anti-clockwise direction; please contact us for more details.
Driving to the NamibRand Nature Reserve is an experience in itself. It allows guests to enjoy the incredible change of scenery, wide open spaces and seemingly endless vistas of Namibia, making the journey there part of the destination.
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 and ice cream!), and continue onto Sesriem, where you can fill up with fuel at the Sesriem Petrol Station. From this point, it is a 2.5 hour drive to Wolwedans Village reception, on good dirt roads.
COMBINATIONS WITH SOSSUSVLEI
Sesriem is at the entrance to Sossusvlei and Deadvlei, is and a 2.5 hour journey from Wolwedans. As it’s such a long drive, we highly recommend you stay in one of the number of hotels, lodges and camp at Sesriem, for easy and convenient access to the dunes of Sossusvlei and Deadvlei. Then, continue your desert adventure with some time with us at Wolwedans, where you can fully relax in one of the remotest corners on earth.
