Wolwedans Mountain View Suite

Wolwedans Mountain View Suite

Wolwedans Mountain View Suite is within easy walking distance of Wolwedans Dunes Lodge yet remains secluded and private. It is entirely separate and self-contained, ideal for honeymooners or those who prefer to be alone in this glorious Namib Desert. Set in the magnificent NamibRand Nature Reserve, this luxurious suite is constructed on 200 square meters of timber decking that rises above the dunes. It is beautifully decorated and complements the scenery into which it is set.

The suite consists of a spacious bedroom with king-size bed, en-suite bathroom with two washbasins, generous shower, and toilet. From the suite there is a private view over a spectacular dune valley. The suite also boasts a shaded patio area with hammock for lazy moments, open-plan kitchenette, and an east-facing veranda and sundeck that lead from the platform into the surrounding dunes.

Meals are prepared by a private chef, and a personal butler will ensure all your needs are met. You are welcome to dine in the Dunes Lodge should you prefer.

All the activities offered at the Wolwedans Camps are available, including desert walks with the guides introducing you to uniquely adapted desert fauna and flora, guided 4x4 drives on morning or afternoon excursions, as well as full-day safaris and picnics out in nature. There are also half-day excursions and sundowner trips to the dunes. Dinners by candlelight are magical, and the camp staff is happy to arrange it. As the reserve is enormous, scenic flights are extremely popular as one is able to see so much more in a short period of time. Hot-air ballooning trips in this pristine area offers vistas across the Diamond Coast and Sossusvlei. A champagne breakfast at the end of the trip brings one back to earth gently.

Game species found in the reserve include gemsbok, mountain and plains zebra, springbok, red hartebeest, bat-eared fox, spotted hyena, Cape fox, and African wildcats. The more rocky areas are inhabited by kudu, klipspringer, baboon, and leopard, while the dunes are inhabited by a rich and diverse micro-fauna.

Covering an area of some 200,000 hectares (2,000,000,000 square meters) close to Sossusvlei, the NamibRand Reserve is bordered by the Naukluft Park in the west and the impressive Nubib Mountain range in the east. The special attraction of the reserve is the diversity of desert landscapes. Virtually all facets of the Namib are represented here. Mountains plunging down into endless grassy plains interspersed by red vegetated dunes create a living tapestry of ever-changing colors and shapes that provide a visual feast for artists and photographers.

The park is governed by a strict code of ethics, and the number of guests is restricted so that, in theory, every bed must be surrounded by 1,000 hectares of nature. In layman's terms, this is the equivalent of 10,000,000 square meters of wilderness per guest. No overcrowding here!
