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

After purchase, a massive programme to remove internal fences and livestock was undergone and the recovering health of the ecosystem brought the wildlife back. More recently the Kulala Wilderness Reserve (KWR) has removed fences along its southern boundary with the Namib Rand Nature Reserve, and while fences between KWR and the adjacent Namib-Naukluft National Park remain they are no impediment to the movement of wildlife.

Small Carnivore Research Project

With the creation of the Kulala Wilderness Reserve an opportunity arose to study the rehabilitation of this area after years of subsistence farming. The Small Carnivore Research Project ran in 2000, when bat-eared fox were studied as an indicator species for land rehabilitation, followed by studies on aardwolf, black-backed jackal, Cape fox and African wildcat.

A Quote From Our Guests

“ This wonderful lodge has the most spectacular setting - the Namib-Naukluft dunes are a few hundred meters from the lodge and visible from one's room, and there are beautiful mountains on the other side. The Kulala Conservancy's location affords private access into the park which is fantastic. ”
