Future of tourism
Staying at Desert Lodge contributes to the future of tourism, not only in Namibia but in Southern Africa as a whole, in a long lasting and sustainable way.
Previously known as Wolwedans Dunes Lodge, the new Desert Lodge has undergone a shake up, and comes back as our hospitality training facility. This is part of the Wolwedans Desert Academy based at the Village at Wolwedans.
Our goal here is to introduce young people to the tourism and hospitality sector with a long term vision of building a passion for tourism, service excellence and all the details that go into a running a lodge or hotel. Students learn about all the different divisions it takes to run a lodge ensuring they have a holistic understanding of all facets of the business.
Do keep in mind that some of the staff are still students who are finding their feet and confidence in hospitality. The service might not be 100% perfect but it will always be with the biggest of smiles and plenty of enthusiasm. We do have experienced managers and senior staff on site as well to ensure that everything runs smoothly.
