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.

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.

Seychelles

1500km east of mainland East Africa lies an archipelago of 115 islands collectively known as Seychelles. The outer islands, with a land area of 220 km2 make up almost half of the land area of Seychelles and 2% of its population. These outer islands comprise 9 important bird areas, the largest population of giant tortoises, nesting grounds for turtles, over 180 bird species, 320 species of coral, over 1000 fish species, spinner dolphins, humpback whales, bottlenose dolphins, pilot whales, melon-headed whales and even the elusive dugong.

Within the outer islands is the Alphonse Group, the coral islands of Alphonse, St Francois and Bijoutier, about 1 hour's flight and 250km from Mahé. Just over 1000 km southwest of Mahé you find the Aldabra Group, including Cosmoledo and Astove Atolls. An atoll is a ring-shaped coral reef including a coral rim that encircles a lagoon partially or completely. There may be coral islands or cays on the rim. The coral of the atoll often sits atop the rim of an extinct seamount or volcano which has eroded or subsided partially beneath the water. The lagoon forms over the volcanic crater or caldera while the higher rim remains above water or at shallow depths that permit the coral to grow and form the reefs.

It is amidst this vast oceanic playground that you will find Blue Safari Seychelles.
