Kulala Desert Lodge


Kulala Desert Lodge offers luxury tented accommodation and is the closest lodge to Sossusvlei. A private gate to the Namib Naukluft National Park is available exclusively for Wilderness Safaris vehicles and guests staying at Kulala Desert Lodge. Sossusvlei is one of the most popular attractions in Namibia and forms part of the Namib Sand Sea World Heritage Site. Marvel at the sheer natural beauty of the surrounding sea of pristine and untouched desert dunes. The distinct orange colour of the gigantic dunes dotted with tufts of grass will leave you mesmerized at this natural wonder. Guests can absorb the views from their own private verandas and are advised to pay particular attention to the shadows that form over the dunes during sunrise and sunset.

4×4 nature drives to Sossusvlei and the Deadvlei are available for guests. Deadvlei is one of the most photographed scenes from the African continent and is littered with ancient preserved skeletons of camelthorn trees. Take a moment to consider that hundreds of years ago water flowed through this area as the giant surrounding orange dunes are in a constant process of shifting.

This luxury desert lodge offers their guests the option of sleeping on a flat platform on the rooftop of their kulala. This is a popular choice for honeymooners seeking something memorable. The above luminous milky way and shooting stars will stay in your memory long after.

A swimming pool is available for guests to refresh and cool off when things get too hot. Lie back on the loungers and order yourself something from the bar.

This lodge is easily accessible for self-drive travellers to Namibia – please note that a 4×4 is recommended for your safety and comfort. A nearby airstrip caters for those guests planning a fly-in safari to Namibia.

23 luxury thatched and canvas tents each built on a wooden platform.

Wildlife that exists in the reserve include ostrich, springbok, gemsbok, spotted hyaena and the occasional brown hyaena. Smaller creatures such as bat-eared fox, black-backed jackal, and Cape fox can also be seen. Birders will be fascinated to learn that the aptly named dune lark, has its entire global distribution limited to the surrounding area.
