Good Day Thank you for your review. Please allow us once again to apologize for the level of inconvenience you experienced during your stay at Wolwedans. As mentioned before, the cold weather during your stay was at its coldest this winter. This was quite an anomaly and a challenge, not only for you, but for for every living creature at...

Our guides were really really nice (Alfred and Matthew) and all the staff was extremely lovely. If we have the chance to get in Namibia again, we...

Wolwedans is located in a stunningly beautiful landscape. Service, food etc was very good. We did a couple of sundowner tours, afternoon tour and a walking tour tour with bush people. All tours were excellent.

An amazingly beautiful location with service to match - quite breathtaking.

The rooms are very up market tents with fantastic views of the desert and oryx roaming nearby - hot water bottles...

The staff are excellent - really great personal service! Beautifully laid out lodge in a stunning setting. The rooms are beautifully equipped, with private views. Very good food, especially considering the effort it must take to get anything there!

We had a lovely visit. Long drive from the main road with many animal sightings. You leave your car at the base and are driven to the lodge which is literally built on a dune. This was at the start of our trip and thus our first experience with the beautiful red sand classic of Namibia. Lodges were large, double...

This is the perfect place to end your Namibia safari. The staff are friendly and vibrant, the rooms are spacious and well-kept, and the multitude of colors you'll see during sunrise and sunset are worth the visit alone. It's all about the scenery at this lodge.

Great location. While it is in the middle of nowhere, nature is breathtaking and memorable, in the middle of the Namib desert. All rooms are tented which helps the ventilation as there is no aircon. Not much to do but soon you grow to appreciate exactly that. Food was really of high quality although just one menu with no choices....
