Wolwedans Dunes Lodge Description
The Dunes Lodge is perched on top of a dunes plateau some eight kilometers north of the Dune Camp and overlooks panoramic vistas in all directions, capturing the desert in a most memorable way. The building style is a combination of wooden structures, large canvas blinds and windows that open up to the desert beyond. The lodge reflects the ambience of a tented camp, but provides the comfort and protection of a permanent building. Each of the nine spacious Chalets with en-suite bathrooms leads onto a private veranda and vast stretches of untouched sand. Sleeping with your canvas blinds open is as good as sleeping under the stars. The main complex - which has completely been rebuilt during 2003 - consists of two lounges, a number of sundowner decks, a fireplace, a tea deck, a library, the wine cellar and two dining rooms. All communal areas of the lodge open out onto verandahs with superb views. A swimming pool will be added during 2004 and it is this variety of recreational areas, which make a visit both relaxing and exciting and calls for a 3 night stay. A special attraction of the lodge is the 'Mountain View Suite'; providing living space in abundance, the Suite is ideally suited for those who want to stay over for several days, seeking private seclusion in total comfort and style.
