Kulala Desert Lodge

Place: Kulala Desert Lodge is situated at the foot of the majestic Sossusvlei Dunes and is the closest location to Sossusvlei (via a private gate exclusive to Wilderness Safaris vehicles). Scenic nature drives and walks are available; electric ‘fat bikes’ are a fun way to explore the spectacular open plains. A highlight is to experience the area on a hot air balloon safari (at extra cost). Accommodation: The camp comprises 23 thatched and canvas “kulalas” (including two family units), each built on a wooden platform, and a flat rooftop for sleep-outs under the stars. The main area includes a pool and wraparound veranda overlooking a waterhole. Purpose: Our programme to remove internal fences and livestock has resulted in the recovery of this ecosystem and its wildlife.  NOTE: Ballooning closed on 25 Dec and 1 Jan, and from mid-Jan to mid-Feb.Unique Selling PointsClosest camp and private gate access to the Sossusvlei dunesSuited to self-drives, families and larger groupsVaried activities in Kulala Wilderness Reserve from fat bikes to ballooning (both at extra cost)
