There are certain things in life which simply cannot be rushed, and a trip to Wolwedans Boulders Camp is one of them.
Situated in the deep south of the NamibRand Nature Reserve, Boulders is a small and exclusive safari camp, and the latest addition to the Wolwedans Collection. As it is such a small and remote camp, guests were always encouraged to spend at least two nights at the camp, ideally combined with a stay at one of the other camps. However, it turns out the magic number is three, with most guests choosing to spend three nights at Boulders.
In order to reduce the amount of coming and going of guests, which in a small camp can be quite disruptive, Boulders Safari Camp will become a compulsory three-night experience as of 2018. This means that there will be fixed arrival and departure dates every third day throughout the year. By taking this course, Boulders believes that they can really weave the magic in terms of creating carefully choreographed guest’s experiences.
Here is what a typical 3-night visit at Boulders would look like in 2018:
Day One: Guests arrive before lunch (by car or plane, or from Wolwedans if one night was spent there) and settle in. After time for a siesta, there will be a session about NamibRand project/sustainability, followed by afternoon eBike tour or scenic drive. The day ends with sundowners at the camp viewpoint and dinner in camp.
Day Two: Guests are taken out on a morning Bushmen walk (2-3 hours) followed by brunch in the field, and returning to camp before noon. Cake and coffee are served in the afternoon, followed by an extended scenic drive, exploring the South of the reserve. The drive ends with sundowners in the field, enjoying an unspoilt 360 degree view. The day ends with dinner under the stars back at camp (weather permitting).
Day Three: After a relaxed breakfast, guests are taken on a day safari to Wolwedans. This involves a 2-3 hour scenic drive to the heart of the reseve, a one hour sustainability tour of our base, followed by lunch (served in the vegetable garden or at the Dune Camp). Then returning to Boulders in time for a siesta followed by sundowners in the field. Guests will be surprised with a lavish bush dinner under the stars on this last night.
Day Four: Guests depart after breakfast.
Last but not least: From April till November 2017, Wolwedans will be offering multi-night horseback safaris for experienced riders, including two nights at Boulders. There will also be shorter sundowner rides for novices offered at the Wolwedans Camps.
