Located a stone’s throw from the towering dunes of Sossusvlei, Wolwedans lies at the heart of the rejuvenated NamibRand Nature Reserve in southwest Namibia. This is Southern Africa’s largest privately-owned nature reserve and environmentally friendly Wolwedans is its flagship green-property.
The lodge consumes the bare minimum of resources to keep guests comfortable. Mindful of its arid environment, Wolwedans’s operations are economical with the desert’s most precious resource. Grey water is carefully recycled while a drip irrigation system keeps the vegetable gardens green. The NamibRand was also recently declared Africa’s first dark sky reserve thanks largely to the absence of noisy generators and light pollution.
Eco-friendly Wolwedans features amongst the top 48 sustainable safari operations, as selected by David Bristow and Colin Bell for inclusion in their magnificent coffee table book: Africa’s Finest. This important book is the definitive resource for discerning the handful of truly sustainable safari operations from the host of green-washers and eco-pirates that pervade the African safari lodge industry. If you’d like to get hold of a copy of their book then you can order it here.
