Kulala Desert Lodge is located within the 37 000-hectare private Kulala Wilderness Reserve, and is the closest lodge to the iconic dunes of Sossusvlei.
Accommodation comprises 19 thatched and canvas rooms with en-suite bathrooms and verandas. Each unit is built on a wooden platform and has a deck rooftop where bedrolls are placed for guests to sleep under the stars.
Kulala Desert Lodge has a main area with décor inspired by northern Africa, as well as a lounge, bar, dining area, plunge pool, and wrap-around veranda overlooking the waterhole - a perfect location to view and photograph the desert vista.
Activities at Kulala Desert Lodge revolve around sunrise guided nature drives to the spectacular dunes of Sossusvlei through a private gate on the Tsauchab River.
Nature drives, walks and eco-sensitive, guided quad-biking are also offered through on the private Kulala Wilderness Reserve.
Another option, at an extra cost, is early morning ballooning, beginning at first light.
