Kulala Desert Lodge
Situated at the foot of the majestic Sossusvlei dunes, a private entrance to Namib Naukluft Park makes Kulala Desert Lodge the closest location to Sossusvlei, while magnificent views of its famous red dunes, mountainous scenery and vast open plains make it the most spectacular.
The camp comprises 23 thatched and canvas “kulalas” (including three family units) with en-suite bathrooms and verandas. Each unit is built on a wooden platform to catch the cooling breezes and a flat rooftop where bedrolls are placed for guests to sleep under the stars. The main area, with northern African-inspired décor, has a lounge, dining area, pool, and wraparound veranda overlooking a waterhole. Activities impress guests with the overwhelming magnitude, solitude and tranquility of the desert and include private tours to Sossusvlei, scenic nature walks and drives to view the desert’s fascinating flora and fauna. At extra cost, it is also possible to experience the area on a hot air balloon safari. NOTE: Ballooning closed from mid-January to mid-February.
