Do you love the wide-open spaces, dunes and vistas of NamibRand – and Wolwedans in particular? Now you can experience this magnificent landscape and it’s wild inhabitants from horseback. Other than walking, there can hardly be a better way to get up close and personal with nature. Your first horseback ride is included in your stay and any additional rides are a premium activity for which packages can be tailored to suit each guest’s riding ability.
A special attraction at NamibRand Nature Reserve is hot-air ballooning. This seasonal activity allows you to float over the dune belts and never-ending plains of the Namib Desert; providing unforgettable and breathtaking 360-degree vistas. From the best viewpoint imaginable, you admire the stark beauty of the Namib for about an hour, before celebrating this once in a lifetime experience with a champagne breakfast at the landing spot.
In collaboration with our sister company NatureWings, Wolwedans can offer you an aerial view of the world’s oldest arid landscape. Based on the length of your stay, you could have your pick of four alternate routes. For a short introductory flight over the dunes of Sossusvlei, opt for routes A or B (see below). For guests staying three nights or longer, a full day fly-in safari provides the ideal opportunity to visit some of Namibia’s famous attractions in the far South.
The Wolwedans Village is our base camp of operations. It’s abuzz with activity and one of the most exciting places at Wolwedans. Passionate team members will explain all aspects of our interdependent base operations and lead this tour of our back of house operations. We explore the advanced water management system and grey-water infrastructure as well as the solar panel field. In a bid to cut our carbon footprint we have invested heavily in energy-reduction initiatives, while a state-of-the-art photovoltaic power installation has meant that all of our camps now run entirely on solar power.
You will learn about small and large desert dwellers and their quest for survival in this harsh and unforgiving environment, and you’ll discover a diverse flora, ranging from resilient beauty to hardened survivor – not to mention NamibRand’s fascinating geology.
TokTokkie Trails is a separate concession on the reserve and offers guided desert walking trails in the southeast of the NamibRand Nature Reserve. The trail is two nights long and can easily be integrated into a visit to Wolwedans (subsequently becoming a four-night stay). The pace of the trail is leisurely and designed for guests from 10 to 70 years of age. Daily distances do not exceed 10 kilometers to ensure close-up viewing of the desert’s intriguing flora and micro-fauna. Groups (which could also be exclusive) are limited to 8 persons to ensure personal attention.
The starkness of Sossusvlei and the wild beauty of NamibRand provides the perfect backdrop for amateur and professional photographers alike. The incredible and abundant contrasts of colour and geology of the landscapes will give ample opportunity for the perfect shot.
