Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

Wolwedans Desert Lodge (previously known as Wolwedans Dunes Lodge) has ten luxurious chalets on stilts with corrugated iron roofs, roll-down canvas sides and enormous bathrooms. The views - available in abundance in every direction - are not of this earth.

The colour palette here reflects the surrounds in neutrals and ochre reds. Allow the desert breeze in. No matter where you look, a marvel. It's almost hard to believe a place as incredible as this can exist. A place where the serenity is so tangible you almost feel like you could take it with you when you leave.

The main lodge is also on stilts and the lounges, dining rooms, library and wine cellar are surrounded by a platter of sun decks, verandahs and a swimming pool. The food has critics flying in from all corners smacking their chops in glee; the service and attention to detail are tempered only by a manic commitment to your personal privacy.

Staying here contributes to the future of tourism. A bold statement, but true as the Desert Lodge is now a hospitality training facility as part of the Wolwedans Desert Academy based at the Wolwedans village and under the umbrella of the Wolwedans Foundation. The main goal is to teach and instil fine hospitality and service excellence. Exactly what you can expect to encounter and experience at any of the Wolwedans lodges. The staff here are all students, with a passion for tourism and the willingness to learn, although the service may not always be 100%, you can be sure that it comes with enduring smiles and an enthusiastic demeanor.

The pinnacle of luxury and seclusion lies in a small valley adjacent to the lodge and is called Wolwedans Plains Camp. The villa has two suites and the same leather-bound luxury of Wolwedans Desert Lodge. Choose to be left alone and fend for yourself in the kitchen; or you can opt for the Full Monty with a private chef and a personal safari. The other lodges within the Wolwedans Collection are Wolwedans Dune Camp Boulders Safari Camp. If you take your luxury and privacy a little more seriously than most, you can opt for the Mountain View Suite.
