Waiting for Wolwedans... no longer

WAITING FOR WOLWEDANS

For many years Wolwedans has been on my bucket list of destinations and a place I have truly coveted to include in our Portfolio. Having just returned from an immersive few days it gives me great pleasure to announce the wait is over.
We are delighted to welcome WOLWEDANS PRIVATE CAMP & BOULDERS SAFARI CAMPas a member of Classic Portfolio.

The vast 220,000ha privately owned NamibRand Reserve landscape of red dune belts, gravel plains, mountains and "inselbergs" is incomparable to anything I've ever experienced. The powerful silence of this wild desolation beckons your soul. It is simply out of this world.

Having spent a few days with visionary, Stephan Brückner, who created these unique and exceptional experiences, we are thrilled to be working with this dynamic team and growing awareness of Wolwedans Private Camp and Boulders Safari Camp.

Stay the first night at one of the Sossusvlei lodges and after an early morning Sossusvlei experience head to Wolwedans. Only pay for the days you are using the car pre-arrival at Wolwedans. Fly back to Windhoek.

What's equally impressive is the Wolwedans Foundation. Here is a tangible passion for everything they do and we admire each of their projects, from the Desert Academy, and NICE (Namibian Institute of Culinary Education) to the infrastructure for water and solar power and the vegetable gardens that provides energy, water and fresh greens to the camps.

Zambia

WHAT WE LOVE: Having done safaris all over Africa our whole team agrees that Zambia is still one of the most sensational and authentic safari experiences. As the home of walking safaris this is one of the best places to get out of the vehicle and do a safari on foot. Hailed as Africa’s ‘diamond in the rough’ or even ‘the warm heart of Africa’, Zambia is a country blessed with awe-inspiring natural wonders, a huge variety of wildlife and an abundance of birdlife, huge water bodies (including 17 magnificent waterfalls) and great tracts of pristine bushveld. It has also been acknowledged as one of the safest countries in the world, whose inhabitants are known for being warm and welcoming. It is a landlocked country, sharing its borders with Tanzania and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the north, Angola to the east, Namibia and Zimbabwe to the south, and Mozambique and Malawi to the east. It even shares a 2km border with Botswana!

Deteema Springs & Deka Camp

Deteema Springs is near the Deteema dam in northwestern Hwange National Park, famous for its large concentrations of animals, including elephant. Year-round water seeps make this area ideal for walking and game drives, producing incredible wildlife sightings. Deka Camp is situated in the far northwest of Hwange National Park, on a low hill overlooking the Deka Seeps. The seeps are the headwaters of the Deka river which flows east to the Zambezi.
