Little Kulala, Sossusvlei, Namibia

Little Kulala is a Classic Camp

4Cs Projects at Little Kulala

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.

Small Carnivore Research Project

With the creation of the Kulala Wilderness Reserve arose an opportunity to study the rehabilitation of this area after years of subsistence farming. The Small Carnivore Research Project began 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.
