There is an abundance of activities at Wolwedans, all lead by experienced guides, by foot, car or from the air.
A full day-safari, taking in the wildlife and admiring the views and colours of the landscape which change by the hour, allows you to get close to the natural beauty which reverberates around the Wolwedans Game Reserve.
Hot-air ballooning and planes are available for scenic flights to the Diamond Coast and Sossusvlei.
For those that wish to pursue a more physically demanding activity, walking trails can be arranged and a new a two-day hiking trail into the impressive Losberg Mountain is now open for guests. The pace of the trails, according to the Wolwedans website, is leisurely and will suit guests from 10 to 70 years of age. Daily distances do not exceed 10 kilometers to ensure close-up viewing of the deserts intriguing flora and micro-fauna. Groups (which could also be exclusive) are limited to 8 in order to ensure personal attention.
A sleep-out option is now available, allowing guests to sleep in a remote and secluded location, on a luxury purpose built structure. To then be able to awaken to one of the most stunning sunrises you will ever see.
For those with a passion for photography, a 12 day photo Wolwedans workshop is available in 2010 and is presented by Bruno Frangi. The perfect combination of the starkness of Sossusvlei and the wild beauty of NamibRand provides the perfect backdrop for amateur and professional photographers alike. The incredible and abundant contrasts of colour and form in the landscapes allow ample opportunity for the perfect shot.
