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 guided nature walks are available; guided electric powered fat bike excursions (at extra cost on a DB1 rate basis, however, included on a FI rate basis - subject to availability on either rate basis) are a fun way to explore the spectacular open plains. A highlight is to experience the area on a hot air balloon safari (weather permitting and at extra cost).
Accommodation: The camp comprises 23 thatched and canvas tents (including two family units), each built on a raised wooden platform, with a rooftop area 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 December and 01 January, and from mid-January to mid-February.
