Wolwedans Dune Camp sits on the edge of a dune. A 250-metre behemoth of shifting red sand surrounded by soft blonde grass. Six luxurious tents sit atop the dune on raised platforms that are connected to the sublime main lodge by a series of elevated walkways.
The canvas tents are a flimsy barrier between the endless desert outside and the cosy luxury within. En suite bathrooms are enormous and your view from everywhere is astounding. The living area is all chunky leather couches, hefty wooden tables and rumpled books on weathered shelves.
From your private deck, there's plenty space to lounge around and marvel in the endless view, at night sleep out under the stars and in the heat of summer, enjoy the water-filled silo to cool off.
If the tents are a little too adventurous and the elements a little too close for comfort, go for the magnificent Wolwedans Desert Lodge which is a sturdier version.
