No matter where I look, my view is spectacular. The desert is a magical place, and one of the best ways to experience it is at Wolwedans Dune Lodge. Situated on top of a dune plateau, it comprises nine chalets with en-suite bathrooms and private verandas. There is even a swimming pool, which is suspended above the sand, and the perfect way to cool off. Another treat is sleeping with the blinds open. Desert night skies are something else... literally alive with stars.
The magic here lies in the chance to get up close with nature. A safari through this starkly beautiful land is a wonderful introduction. If you're a mountaineer, there is a two-day hiking trail through the incredible Losberg Mountains, which I'm told is really something to experience. Wolwedans even offers a photography workshop. And really what better subject could there be than this amazing landscape.
