Overview

Kulala Desert Lodge has a prime location in a private 37 000 hectare Kulala Wilderness Reserve with private entrance into the Namib-Naukluft National Park. The vast main area has lounge, bar, dining area, plunge pool, curio shop and wrap around veranda overlooking a well frequented watering hole.

The 23 chalets are wooden frames with canvas walls, thatched roof and slightly raised off the ground to try and cool the rooms. Each chalet has a private roof terrace above the bathroom where you can sleep under the stars in bedrolls. The en-suite has a loo, hand basin and bucket shower in an attempt to conserve water in this arid area. There is a family room with two rooms which share a bathroom and wooden deck.

The guided nature drives and walks from this property are highly recommended. Optional early morning balloon flight is a spectacular way to enjoy sunrise over the dunes, alternatively horse riding or tour of the world’s driest vineyard with wine tasting.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout
