Wolwedans NamibRand Reserve in southwestern Namibia is the largest private nature reserve in Southern Africa, a desert frontier ecosystem sharing a 100km western border with the Namib-Naukluft National Park and reaching to the foothills of the Nubib Mountains in the east.
Iron-rich, wind-whorled sand dunes loom magnificently above the sandy plains of Sossusvlei, an area that extends well beyond its nominal 'marsh of no return'. The four distinct and biodiverse habitats encompass granite mountains, gravel plains, ergs, inselbergs, and fairy circles - Google is your friend if you need any enlightenment (-25.0,16.0). Incidentally, the reserve’s night sky happens to be one of the darkest yet measured. And you will want to return.
