The Wolwedans Way and Rates going forward

Dear Travel Partners,

It has been a rollercoaster of a year and we are halfway through already. Hard to believe I know.

Nevertheless still quite a lot of news to share with you coming from one of our partners  Wolwedans Collection.

Please take minute while we share the updates with you and a letter from Stephan Brückner himself:

New beginnings in an ancient landscape

It’s been a while since you heard from us.

To start, please accept our apologies for lying very low for over a year now. While we have been quiet on the communications front, we have used this time well here at Wolwedans and taken the past 15 months of forced reflection to actively prepare for our future and properly reboot who we are, what we offer and why we do what we do.

We are now delighted to share our vision, the WOLWEDANS WAY, and the 3 key pillars upon which we base our future business engagement. 

  • We put the ‘Pursuit of Happiness’, ahead of the quest for profit.
  • We strive for ‘Business in Balance’, and to do what is good for people and the environment, ahead of leading with commercial success.
  • We have added a 5th ‘C’ into our sustainability mix. All our actions are guided by the interconnectedness of our ‘5C’s Sustainability’: Conservation, Commerce, Community, Culture and, now, Consciousness.

Mid 2020 marked our 25th Jubilee. To honour this historic occasion, we quietly launched the ambitious WOLWEDANS VISION 2030, themed ‘The AridEden Project’. Underpinned by a philosophy of balancing people, planet and profit in everything we do, The AridEden Project provides the framework and identity for our journey ahead. See www.arideden.org.

We have numerous exciting developments taking place at Wolwedans and take this opportunity to share the phased approach we are implementing over the next 30 months: August 2021 to December 2023.

Wolwedans remains fully committed to building a strong and successful tourism business and working with tour operators and DMC’s who share our vision and want to partner with us going forward .

Yours in hospitality,
Stephan Brückner
Managing Director
