Wolwedans In The Massive NamibRand Nature Reserve, Dune Camp Offers An Intimate Desert Safari Experience
NamibRand Nature Reserve, Namibia, one of Southern Africa's largest private conservation areas, is situated on the edge of the Namib Desert. The NamibRand Nature Reserve shares a common border with the Namib-Naukluft Park in the west and is protected by the Nubib mountain range in the east.
While Dune Camp aims to accommodate those guests in need of relaxed comfort and space, the camp is a more down-to-earth and close-to-nature experience.
Ideally suited for the more adventurous traveller, the charm of the Dune Camp lies in its tranquil, intimate atmosphere, capturing the romance of a bygone era.
The Wolwedans Dune Camp requires a minimum stay of two nights at the very least to take in and experience all that surrounds as well as those incredible safari activities.

The Road To Sossusvlei
Once one navigates the main Sesriem entrance gates and enters the national park a pleasant surprise awaits, a tarred road (yes, a tarred road) that extends all the way through to the main parking area near Sossusvlei.
Cape Town To The Kunene River
In November and December of last year (2019), we loaded our Jeep and headed north out of Cape Town, destination Namibia and the Kunene River, her border with Angola.
A couple of thousand kilometres later, we returned, this time, more in love with country than ever.
Windhoek Oktoberfest 2021
On the 25th and 26th of October, the Sports Klub Windhoek will host the 55th edition of the Oktoberfest. Over 5000 people are expected to attend (compared to 1000 in 2010).
Adding a certain local flavour will be the Namibian band Famaz Attak, and there will be long-established activities and games like archery and tree trunk sawing.
Top 5 restaurants in Windhoek
Continuing our series of dining in Africa, we look at Windhoek. More and more visitors are becoming aware of the unique attractions that this country as a safari destination has to offer.
Nowhere is too far to travel in this small (and clean) city of 330,000 but be warned when you go out to eat, vegetarianism is not common!
Best Places To Go In Namibia
The Uyaphi team has compiled a list of the "Best Places to go" which most safari itineraries would include. A different destination from most African safari destinations.
Instead of lush green forests or open savannas, the primary attraction being vast, open deserts interspersed with canyons, mountain ranges, and oasis.
Living With The Himba
In May 2012, we arranged for Uyaphi.Com client Ken Vine from Devon in England to stay with the traditional Himba people in two remote villages in the middle of Kaokoland.
He lived, slept, ate, conversed and photographed these Himba villagers.
