Whether you’re visiting for the desert landscapes, the stark coastline or the enigmatic tribes, there’s never a shortage of reasons to hop across the border to Namibia. And if you think you’ve been there, seen it all and got the T-shirt — here are three unforgettable new lodges to tempt you back.
There are, of course, no wolves in Namibia, but that hasn’t stopped the Wolwedans Collection from putting Namibia firmly on the map when it comes to creating memorable desert adventures.
Set in the heart of the 200,000 hectare NamibRand Nature Reserve, Wolwedans has since 1994 set the bar for immersive adventures in the wide open semi-deserts of southwest Namibia. And while the pandemic hit business hard, owner Stefan Brückner — whose father Albi established the NamibRand — has used the quiet time to revamp the iconic lodges in the collection.
