"A secluded open plan lodge with unparalleled views!"
With 200 square metres of deck rising above the dunes, the Mountain View Suite provides ample living space and adds a touch of luxury to the Wolwedans Collection.
The Suite is located within walking distance from the Dunes Lodge, yet it is secluded, allowing guests to spend time in a homely and stylish atmosphere. Consisting of a spacious en-suite bedroom with a king-size bed, the Suite enables guests to enjoy the view of their private dune valley to the fullest.
A shaded patio provides an ideal venue for meals and relaxed hours lazing in a hammock. Add to this a spacious lounge, bar cabinet and dining area and you have a wonderful home away from home.
In the event that guests wish to enjoy their meals ‘entre-nous’, an open-plan kitchenette supports the preparation of meals at the Suite. An east-facing veranda and sundeck lead from the platform into the surrounding dunes. The main veranda has a ‘star-gazing’ bed, which provides a wonderful sleep-out venue during summer.
Keeping in line with the traditional Wolwedans style, the ambience is that of plain elegance embraced by a natural, comfortable charm. * Scenic drives

Since its inception 15 years ago, Wolwedans has been guided by an approach where people, nature and business were all equally important. Right from the start the commercial aim of the business has been to ensure the NamibRand Nature Reserve’s financial viability, assuring the conservation of the Pro-Namib for future generations. This approach was captured in Wolwedans’ earliest mission statement: “We are committed to sustainable growth by carefully balancing quality leadership, economic progress, social responsibility and care for our environment” (Dec 1998).
In 2011, as a result of Wolwedans’ efforts over the last decade, it was chosen as a founding member of the Global Ecosphere Retreats, an initiative spearheaded by the Zeitz Foundation. The Zeitz Foundation aims to transform all that we do into ways and means to move this world forward in a sustainable manner. It is inspired by a vision of the Ecosphere – our planet and all of its life-sustaining regions – maintained in the healthiest possible state. Global Ecosphere Retreats are committed to promoting an inclusive, holistic paradigm of conservation that enhances livelihoods and fosters intercultural dialogue.
Wolwedans officially became a Long Run Destination, Global Ecosphere Retreat® certified, on 17 November 2011 as a result of the work described within this executive summary. The Long Run Initiative is the flagship programme of the Zeitz Foundation. Being certified means that we are leaders in sustainable development and that we work on sustainable, mostly tourism-driven enterprises, whilst fostering community development, conservation support and cultural stewardship. Being Global Ecosphere Retreat® (GER) certified shows that we are not only committed to sustainability, but effectively demonstrate that our resources are sustainably managed.
