About Sossusvlei Wilderness Camp

Sossusvlei Wilderness Camp is situated on the 21 000 hectare Kulala Wilderness Reserve, 34km from the entrance to the Sossusvlei, the spectacular red dunes within the heart of Namibia's Namib Desert.  The property has a unique setting among a rocky outcrop that harbours vast desert plains and rugged mountains with views onto the dunes in the near distance.

Built near the top of a mountain using natural resources of brick, rock timber and thatch, the Sossusvlei Wilderness Camp blends effortlessly with its surroundings. There are nine well appointed guest rooms, each with en -suite facilities and private plunge pools. The main living area of the lodge is under thatch with a pool. There is also an outdoor deck where one can dine under the stars. This is a unique landscape and has the most amazing stargazing opportunities from its vast uninterrupted night skies. The Sossusvlei Wilderness Camp gives guest the opportunity to take advantage of this with their dedicated stargazing platform equipped  with a powerful telescope.

Whilst the area is not game rich, it does offer the opportunity to view more interesting desert game and smaller desert-adapted fauna and flora.  Afternoon nature drive or walking activities are enjoyed on the property where guests can spend time taking in the desert scenery and its unique fauna and flora. Night drives using spotlights offer sightings of cape fox, aardwolf, black-backed jackals, bat eared foxes and spotted hyena.

Another option, at an extra cost, is early morning ballooning, beginning at first light. The 60-90 minute balloon safari offers a truly unique experience to soar silently above the magnificent sand dunes and desert, with a champagne breakfast being served at your landing site.
