Set on 37 000 hectares of land near the spectacular sights of Sossusvlei, the private Kulala Wilderness Reserve is home to Kulala Adventurer Camp. The camp, comprising of 5 “maxi” dome tents under the shade, is perfect for taking in the Reserve’s expansive vistas and stark beauty and enjoys views into the Namib Naukluft National Park. Dining under the star-filled Namibian skies and watching a rose-red sunset punctuated by the cacophony of barking geckos are a few highlights, as is spending unrushed quality time at the towering dunes of Sossusvlei, known for their red colouring in the early morning sunlight, accessed through our private gate which is closer to the dunes than the main park entry gate.
Accommodation at Kulala Adventurer Camp is comprised of semi-permanent 3 metre x 3 metre (10 feet x 10 feet) well-ventilated dome tents with a mini verandah (maximum of two guests per tent) on a slightly raised wooden platform, covered in shade cloth. Wooden beds with mattresses, crisp linen, duvets and pillows plus towels and amenities (soap, shower gel and conditioning shampoo) are provided. In addition, there is a coir mat (inside) and a 12V reading light. The tents are large enough to stand in and move easily. The canvas-wrap open air en-suite bathroom (zip door) is accessible through the rear of tent and has a flush toilet, basin and shower – with hot and cold running water available whenever guests require. The camp provides a simple, yet comfortable and serviced, camping experience. Hurricane lanterns and a good campfire light up the evening camp. Delicious meals are prepared around the campfire, creating a great atmosphere. The dining area, with dining table and director chairs is under the stars (although a bush dining tent is erected in the event of rain), adding to the ‘camping wild’ feel.
