Kulala Wilderness Camp, situated in the heart of the Namib Desert on the private Kulala Wilderness Reserve, lies at the base of a mountain perfectly catching the majestic Namibian sunsets. Close by is the Sossusvlei with its ever-changing red sand hills – the highest dunes in the world and an unquestionable Namibian highlight. It consists of 10 comfortable ‘kulalas’ (meaning ‘to sleep’ in Oshiwambo) with en-suite bathrooms and verandas built on elevated platforms for that spectacular view. The main area is raised to take advantage of the endless vista and comprises a lounge and bar under thatch. Meals are taken on the deck and guests can cool off at the sparkling pool. On the edge of the Namib, the oldest desert in the world, wildlife here is fascinating in its adaptation to the harsh conditions. Sparse yet thrilling to see are springbok, gemsbok, ostrich, bat-eared fox, the rarely seen aardwolf and many small fauna. Activities include excursions to the incredible dunes of Sossusvlei, early morning ballooning (at extra cost), guided walks and scenic nature drives.
