Welcoming Wolwedans Collection to the Naturally Namibia Family

Feb 19, 2024 | Wolwedans Collection

We are thrilled to share some exciting news with you! Naturally Namibia is delighted and proud to announce the newest addition to our family – the Wolwedans Collection.

At the core of Naturally Namibia’s values lies our dedication to providing unparalleled guest experiences, contributing to nature conservation efforts, and actively engaging with local communities.

NamibRand Nature Reserve

The NamibRand is a 220 000-hectare private reserve and considered one of the most photographic destinations on the continent

While each partner within Naturally Namibia boasts its unique charm and character, we all share a personal commitment to delivering exceptional guest experiences. Ongava Nature Reserve and AfriCat have earned international recognition for their outstanding contributions to nature conservation. Simultaneously, Namib Sky Balloon Safaris and Etendeka have excelled in community involvement, with the Namib Sky Community School being a project very close to our hearts.

Wolwedans Collection, nestled within the NamibRand Nature Reserve, excels in all these components of Naturally Namibia’s ethos.

Wolwedans Dune Camp

Warmth and personalised service – and a commitment to care for guest and nature alike – are Wolwedans hallmarks

The alignment of Naturally Namibia’s ethos with Wolwedans might not be a coincidence, as Stephan Brückner was involved in founding Naturally Namibia and shaping its ethos – a lesser-known fact, perhaps.

A visionary leader in the Namibian Tourism industry, Stephan Brückner continues the remarkable legacy of the late Albie Brückner, the founder of the NamibRand Nature Reserve. Today, still under Stephan’s management, Wolwedans comprises five tourism properties, an active Foundation, and the Desert Academy – all carried by a bracing, forward-looking, holistic, and, at times, what some people would call a radical vision, themed “The AridEden Project”. In pursuit of the enduring objective to safeguard the Pro-Namib for generations to come, Wolwedans declares, “We strive to shift away from the passively consumptive tourism paradigm of the past and instead aspire towards a more engaged, active, and participative mode of travel – curated by a diverse array of experiences and activities that nurture the head, hand, and heart.”
