Storm clouds roll in over the Wolwedans’ Dune Lodges at NamibRand Nature Reserve, which is not your usual African safari outfit. Here, in the vast spaces of southern Namibia, you can follow in the steps of the San Bushmen on overnight walking tours, sleep on a “star bed” in the dunes with nothing above your head but the night sky, or take a Cessna over the African plains in your own high-flying Out of Africa moment. With minimalist vernacular architecture, this highly eco-conscious reserve maximizes the nature experience while minimizing impact. It’s just you and Africa.
