Wolwedans Dunes Lodge, Namibia
How to get there: two flights or one flight and a six-hour drive
Getting to South Africa is tough enough. Getting to Wolwedans Dunes Lodge, a desert resort in the NamibRand Nature Reserve? That’ll take another two-hour flight from Johannesburg or Cape Town to Windhoek, plus a six-hour drive or a 105-minute prop-plane ride. The reserve itself is a nearly 500,000-acre open space where wildlife roam freely. You can explore the desert on walking safaris, scenic drives, or by hot air balloon. The Lodge aims to make its presence felt as little as possible—all the accommodations are on elevated wooden decks with roll-up canvas walls; plus, they only use solar power.
