    The highlight of safaris at Wolwedans, and the other-worldly Namib Rand reserve, is not the wildlife - of which there is plenty to see. It's the ethereal scenery, which changes with the light and transports you far from any known reference point. Most mysterious of all are the fairy circles, thousands of circles of bare sand that appear from nowhere in the grasses - there are plenty of theories as to their origin, but for lyricism, none beat's the ancient Bushmen belief that they were land trampled by their ancestors' spirits, who had returned overnight to dance. The camps are the most glorious tents imaginable, the food divine, the experience meriting the overused epithet - unique.
