Kulala Desert Lodge, Soussusvlei


The photographs will not prepare you for the visual extravaganza that is the world’s oldest desert. This is where the wind and millions of years have shaped red sand into megalithic dunes, and then carved them into gigantic geometric contours and repeating patterns. Don’t resist the temptation to take a hot air balloon flight!

It’s also a place where you can find wildlife that has evolved to suit the extreme habitat. Springbok, gemsbok, ostrich and jackal are regulars at the Lodge’s waterhole, while bat-eared foxes, the occasional aardwolf, hyena, porcupine and an impressive array of rodents and reptiles all thrive here too.
