Drive time: 5 hours, 211 miles
Our early morning departure from Windhoek takes us through the Khomas Hochland mountains and down into the iconic Sossusvlei region, a driving time of approximately five hours.
Spend time on the private Kulala Wilderness Reserve, a private tract of land near the spectacular sights of Sossusvlei, bordering the expansive Namib Naukluft Park. The camp, comprising dome tents under the shade, is perfect for taking in the Reserve's expansive vistas and stark beauty and enjoy views into the Namib Naukluft National Park. Dining under the star-filled Namibian skies and watching a blood red sunset punctuated by the cacophony of barking geckos are a few highlights, as is spending unhurried time at the towering dunes of Sossusvlei, known for their red coloring in the early morning sunlight, accessed through our private gate which is closer to the dunes than the main park entry gate. Desert-adapted wildlife such as ostrich, springbok and gemsbok can be seen on the reserve, as well as smaller creatures like bat-eared fox, black-backed jackal and Cape fox.
Other activities include day and night scenic drives and walks, and optional early morning ballooning, horse riding or camel rides (the last three at extra cost). Overnights Kulala Adventurer Camp.
Note: Departure from Windhoek on Day 1 is at 9:00am. We are happy to arrange an overnight in Windhoek the day before the safari begins if necessary.
