Kulala Desert Lodge Game Viewing and Activities

Kulala Desert Lodge offers early morning guided nature drives to the dunes of Sossusvlei. The legendary Sossusvlei is an enormous clay pan, flanked by the famous red sand dunes that stand out starkly against the blue sky. These dunes have developed over millions of years, the wind continuously transforming the contours of this red sand sea. The 'vlei' itself only fills after rare heavy rainfall when, in a complete turn-around, it becomes a spectacular turquoise lake.

Guided walks are also offered on the private reserve offering magnificent views. Another option, at an extra cost, is early morning ballooning, beginning at first light. The balloon safari offers a truly unique experience above the magnificent sand dunes and desert, with a champagne breakfast being served at the landing site. Desert-adapted wildlife such as ostrich, springbok and gemsbok are sparsely distributed here. Larger predators include spotted hyaena and occasionally brown hyaena. Smaller creatures such as bat-eared fox, black-backed jackal, porcupine, Cape fox and aardwolf can be seen at night in the cool desert air, and one bird, the aptly named Dune Lark, has its entire global distribution limited to the area, so dependent is it on the area's characteristic sands.
