      Kulala Desert Lodge

      Sleep Under the Desert Stars

      Kulala Desert Lodge is located within the arid Namib Desert on the 91,500 acre private Kulala Wilderness Reserve, and is closest to the iconic dunes of the Sossusvlei. Accommodation at Kulala Desert Lodge comprises 25 thatched and canvas "kulalas" ("to sleep" in Oshiwambo) with en-suite bathrooms and verandas. This includes three family tents which can accommodate two adults and two children. Each unit is built on a wooden platform to catch the cooling breezes and has a deck on the flat rooftop where bedrolls are placed for guests to sleep under the myriad stars that Namibia's clear skies portray. Kulala Desert Lodge has a main area, lounge, bar, dining area, plunge pool, and wrap-around veranda overlooking the waterhole - a perfect location to view and photograph the desert vista. The overall setting is a true delight to the senses, bringing together the rhythm of Namibia, wholesome meals and intimacy. A waterhole in front of camp attracts a number of local wildlife (such as gemsbok, springbok, ostriches and jackals) and provides a perfect location to view and photograph the desert scenery. Activities at Kulala Desert Lodge revolve around early morning guided nature drives to the spectacular dunes of Sossusvlei through the private gate on the Tsauchab River. World-famous Sossusvlei is an enormous clay pan, flanked by the famous sand dunes that stand out starkly against the blue sky and flush red in the early morning sun. These dunes have developed over millions of years, the wind continuously transforming the contours of this red sand sea. The 'vlei' itself only fills after rare, heavy rainfalls when, in a complete turn-around, it becomes a spectacular turquoise lake. Nature drives, walks and eco-sensitive, guided quad-biking are also offered through the private Kulala Wilderness Reserve to take in those incredible views and to catch a glimpse of the denizens of the desert. Another option, at an extra cost, is early morning hot-air ballooning, beginning at first light. The balloon safari offers a truly unique experience to soar silently above the magnificent sand dunes and desert, with a champagne breakfast being served at your landing site.

        Six Countries Summer Special

        Available

        01 Nov 14 - 31 Mar 15

        Ever increasing in popularity, the summer months in Southern Africa (November – March) offer a different safari experience as short showers green the dry grasslands and clean the bright blue skies. Photographers delight in the clear light, spectacular sunrises and sunsets, and rare bird sightings. Because the resident wildlife disperses to many abundant water sources, you may have to work a bit harder to see the animals, but you will have the added benefit of seeing many babies who arrive at this time of year. read more
