Wolwedans Scenic Drives


Wolwedans provides the perfect base from which to explore the vast stretches of undisturbed nature in the NamibRand Nature Reserve - whether you choose a scenic drive or a scenic flight.

Our personal and informative scenic drives in open Land Rovers reveal the wonders of the wilderness. 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.

Wolwedans scenic drive

Sundowner drives are of about 1 to 2 hours duration travelling about 10 km into the dunes where drinks will be served to enhance the wonderful sunsets. The return drive is in the dark and brings you back just in time for dinner. The perfect opportunity to experience the magnificent sunset in the dunes.

Morning or afternoon drives cover a distance of about 40 to 50 km and take 3 to 4 hours. Afternoon scenic drives are often combined with sunset in the dunes.

A day drive is a truly memorable excursion at Wolwedans. Covering a distance of about 120 km it offers the highest degree of diversity as well as a better understanding of the dimensions of the NamibRand Conservancy. Also a delicious picnic lunch is served in the middle of nowhere! The day drive leaves after breakfast and returns approximately an hour before sunset.

We aspire to make your stay at Wolwedans as personal and individual as possible. However there are certain constraints imposed by the NamibRand Nature Reserve, which has ecological conservancy regulations. The number of vehicles are restricted - as well as the number of guests accommodated - which does not always allow us to offer exclusive drives. We will do our utmost to accommodate your wishes but we ask for your understanding if we are unable to.
