This stone and thatch lodge has the best views of the dunes of any camp in the area, and also offers a good price, considering its private reserve location. A recent refurbishment has also raised the standard of the entire camp.
ACCESS & LOCATION:
The concession has the only private entrance into Sossusvlei, giving this camp the advantage of avoiding the crowds that enter through the park's main entrance.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES AT KULALA DESERT LODGE:
With 23 rooms, Kulala Desert lodge is larger and less luxurious than other options we recommend in the area. In our view, price and the fantastic dune location are the main reasons for staying here.
ACTIVITIES AT KULALA DESERT LODGE:
Activities include trips into Sossusvlei and up the huge dunes. The private concession also offers game drives as well as a number of superb walking areas. However travellers should be reminded that this is far from a big game area, so drives tend to be about the minutia as opposed to Africa’s big game.
*This property is unfenced and located in a wildlife area, so large and potentially dangerous animals do pass through. If you opt to stay here, always be alert when walking around the camp and request for a member of staff to escort you if you have any concerns. Any guest is escorted after dark as a matter of course
