Kulala Desert Lodge
Situated at the foot of the majestic Sossusvlei Dunes, Kulala Desert Lodge is the closest 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). There are only 23 thatched 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. Ballooning is at additional cost.
