Kulala Wilderness Lodge and it’s upmarket sister lodge Little Kulala are the only two lodges within the 37,000 hectare private Kulala Wilderness Reserve. This borders the famous Namib-Naukluft National Park which is home to Namibia’s iconic highlights such as Sossusvlei, Deadvlei, Dune 45 and Big Daddy.
Each of Kulala’s 23 thatched tents, as well as the comfortable main area make the most of the view as they face towards the sea of apricot-coloured dunes.
As well as accessing the Namib-Naukluft National Park on guided tours through the private gate, guided and un-guided walking trails and nature drives on the concession are also on offer. “Fat bikes” are also available which are particularly popular for families. It is also just a short distance from the hot air balloon departure point so it is a great lodge for those looking to experience this unique flight over the desert scenery.
It is a fascinating and beguiling area and along with the famous landmarks there is some great wildlife to be seen. Although, as you would expect in such an arid environment populations exist in a low density in this area and any sighting should be savoured. Ostrich, gemsbok and springbok can be found and black-backed jackals, Cape foxes, aardwolves, spotted hyena and also brown hyena are sometimes seen. The dune lark is Namibia’s only true endemic bird and can be found in this area.
