Three hours drive south of all the other lodges on the nature reserve, Boulder's Camp is as far removed as it gets. Here you are surrounded by nothing but wide open spaces, granite outcrops and picturesque plains. Wolwedans Boulders Camp is about as far from civilisation as you can get and still have ice in your G n' T.
Far enough apart, each of the five suites is raised on a wooden deck and features a wrap-around balcony, roll-up sides, en suite bathroom and the best in luxury furnishings. The main lodge at Wolwedans Boulders Camp is a communal living area with yet more decking, library, lounge and a cosy indoor dining area for when the winter scuttles your al fresco dining plans. Request suite one if you prefer your own plunge pool as suites 2 & 3 and suites 4 & 5 share a plunge pool respectively.
The NamibRand is a privately owned nature reserve that covers 171,000ha of the pro-Namib desert east of the Namib-Naukluft Park, which forms a 100km border with the reserve. Combined, these reserves cover a staggering 51,700sq km – an area larger than Switzerland. So to say that Wolwedans Boulders Camp is all about peace, tranquility, escape and majestic scenery would be a mild understatement.
