Wolwedans Dunes Lodge Photo Gallery
The Dunes Lodge is perched on top of a dunes plateau some eight kilometres north of the Wolwedans Dunes Lodge 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 wilderness beyond. Wolwedans Dunes Lodge reflects the ambience of a tented camp but provides the comfort and protection of a permanent building.
The main complex - which has completely been rebuilt during 2003 - consists of two lounges, a number of sundowner decks, a fireplace, a teak deck, a library, the wine cellar and two dining rooms. All communal areas of the lodge open out onto verandahs with superb views.
Rooms and Suites
Each of the nine spacious Chalets with en-suite bathrooms leads onto a private veranda and vast stretches of untouched sand at the private Namib Desert Lodge. Sleeping with your canvas blinds open is as good as sleeping under the stars.
A unique 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.
Cuisine and Wine
Stunning meals are prepared by the team in the kitchen and served up in numerous outdoor and indoor locations around the lodge and surrounding desert.

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.
