|Accommodation Namibia - Southern Region|
Kulala Wilderness Camp, in the 37
000-hectare private Kulala Wilderness Reserve, commands a panoramic view of the
valley and mountains beyond.
Accommodation at Kulala Wilderness Camp 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.
Activities at Kulala Wilderness Camp are focused on exploring the nearby world-famous Sossusvlei - an enormous clay pan, flanked by the famous sand dunes that stand out starkly against the blue sky. These dunes - the most well-known being Big Daddy or Dune 45 - have developed over millions of years, the wind continuously refashioning the contours of this red sand sea. The 'vlei' itself only fills after rare heavy rainfall when, in a complete turn-around, it transforms into a spectacular turquoise lake.
On the edge of the Namib, the oldest desert in the world, wildlife around Kulala Wilderness Camp 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. Excursions to the incredible dunes of Sossusvlei are a must. As are guided walks and scenic nature drives.
Another option, at an extra cost, is early morning ballooning, beginning at first light. The balloon safari offers a truly unique experience to soar silently above the magnificent sand dunes and desert, with a champagne breakfast being served at your landing site.
Take the main road B1 going south, and turn right into the road C24 after Rehoboth. In about 36 km turn into the road 1261 going through Reemhoogte Pass. Later you join road C14 and after Solitaire petrol station you turn into C36 road. Last turn is into the road 826 going to Sesriem. The turn-off is signposted (road to Sesriem / Sossusvlei). From Sesriem take a road 826 until the sign "Kulala lodge" (lodge is approx. 10 km further on off the 826 road to the right).
