Kulala Desert Lodge, Sossusvlei, Namibia

Kulala Desert Lodge is an Adventures Camp

4Cs Projects at Kulala Desert Lodge

Back in 1996 Wilderness Safaris set up an operation on land close to the spectacular Sossusvlei. As this locale had previously been used for subsistence goat farming, precious little indigenous wildlife remained. Today, with careful rehabilitation, the land and its wildlife is back to its former glory.


Kulala Wilderness Reserve

When Wilderness began operating on the reserve, a massive programme to remove internal fences and livestock was undertaken and the recovering health of the ecosystem brought the wildlife back. Then, the fence that divided the Kulala Wilderness Reserve (KWR) and the Namib Rand Nature Reserve was dropped, and while those between KWR and the adjacent Namib-Naukluft National Park remain, they are no impediment to the movement of wildlife.

Energy-saving initiatives

Kulala Desert Lodge is powered by a hybrid system, combining solar energy and a diesel-powered generator. Thanks to the solar energy the generator only needs to operate for eight hours a day as opposed to 24 hours. In addition, each guest tent has its own small solar geyser that provides hot water.
