Wolwedans Activities


Accompanied by experienced guides, visitors are introduced to the many facets of NamibRand Nature Reserve's desert habitat with its diverse fauna and flora - whether on foot, by car, or from the air.

The classic programme - that is if you stay for two nights - would entail an afternoon drive on the day of arrival, followed by a full day-safari with picnic lunch en-route. Alternatively you can join one or two half-day excursions, perfect if you feel like lazing around for an afternoon, simply admiring the views and colours which change by the hour. The choice of scenic drive is entirely yours.

Ballooning at Wolwedans

A special attraction at NamibRand is hot-air ballooning. Soaring silently over the dune belts and never-ending plains provides 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.

If a plane is available, scenic flights to the Diamond Coast and Sossusvlei are undertaken during the late afternoon.

For hiking enthusiasts a walking trail can be arranged. Ideally you would stay one night at Wolwedans, then transfer to Die Duine ('the dunes') for a two night trail and then come back and relax for another afternoon with us at Wolwedans.

For mountaineers, a two-day hiking trail into the impressive Losberg Mountain is currently under development. Check this space for more info. If all goes well, the first trails could be offered soon.

Again, you would spend your first night at Wolwedans, then do the hike, spending a night under the stars on the mountain and return back to Wolwedans for lunch and a well deserved afternoon at leisure.
