Kulala Desert Lodge
Kulala Desert Lodge is located within the arid Namib Desert on the 37 000-hectare private Kulala Wilderness Reserve, and is closest to the iconic dunes of the Sossusvlei.
Accommodation at Kulala Desert Lodge comprises 23 thatched and canvas “kulalas” (“to sleep” in Oshiwambo) with en-suite bathrooms and verandas. This includes three family tents which can accommodate two adults and two children.
Each unit is built on a wooden platform to catch the cooling breezes and has a deck on the flat rooftop where bedrolls are placed for guests to sleep under the myriad stars that Namibia’s clear skies portray.
Kulala Desert Lodge has a main area, lounge, bar, dining area, plunge pool, and wrap-around veranda overlooking the waterhole – a perfect location to view and photograph the desert vista. The overall setting is a true delight to the senses, bringing together the rhythm of Namibia, wholesome meals and intimacy. A waterhole in front of camp attracts a number of local wildlife (such as gemsbok, springbok, ostrich and jackal) and provides a perfect location to view and photograph the desert scenery.
Activities at Kulala Desert Lodge revolve around early morning guided nature drives to the spectacular dunes of Sossusvlei through the private gate on the Tsauchab River. World-famous Sossusvlei is an enormous clay pan, flanked by the famous sand dunes that stand out starkly against the blue sky and flush red in the early morning sun. 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 rainfalls when, in a complete turn-around, it becomes a spectacular turquoise lake.
Nature drives, walks and eco-sensitive, guided quad-biking are also offered through the private Kulala Wilderness Reserve to take in those incredible views and to catch a glimpse of the denizens of the desert.
Another option, at an extra cost, is early morning ballooning, beginning at first light. The 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.
Cornerstone Guesthouse – Swakopmund
Cornerstone Guesthouse is a small, private and peaceful bed and breakfast. We are an easy walk to the seafront and the town centre of Swakopmund on Namibia’s fascinating Skeleton Coast.
Occupying a quiet corner of Swakopmund’s old town near The Marine Museum and The Old Brewery, Cornerstone Guesthouse offers the charm and intimacy of a family-run B&B combined with the modern amenities of a luxury hotel.
Within a few minutes from the guest house you can walk to beaches, cafés, restaurants, lively pubs, Swakopmund’s tourist attractions and a variety of interesting shops and markets in the town.
Doro Nawas Camp – Damaraland
Doro Nawas Camp is located in the dry Aba-Huab River Valley, within the Doro !Nawas Conservancy in central Damaraland, and commands spectacular views of the Etendeka Mountains to the north and the red sandstone cliffs of Twyfelfontein in the south.
Accommodation at Doro Nawas Camp consists of 16 units: a mix of natural stone and canvas walls with wood and glass doors, shaded by a thatch roof. Each unit, is designed to blend into the surrounding scenery, and consists of a bedroom, en-suite bathroom (with outdoor shower) and a veranda for stargazing or sleep outs.
The main building of Doro Nawas Camp is perched atop a sparse, rocky knoll and offers unspoilt panoramic views. This diverse and dramatic landscape varies from tabletop outcrops, small canyons and dry riverbeds, to savannah and grassland vistas. The main area is made up of indoor and outdoor dining areas, pool area, bar and local curio area. A staircase to the roof allows for relaxing sundowners and stargazing.
Doro Nawas Camp provides an excellent base for self-drive and fly-in guests. Activities revolve around extensive game drives and exploratory hikes through this unparalleled landscape. A trip to the fascinating Twyfelfontein San art engravings is not to be missed. Namibia’s first World Heritage Site, Twyfelfontein has the largest collection of petroglyphs (prehistoric rock art) in Africa. Visit the Damara Living Museum and learn about the fascinating traditional culture of the Damara people. This combination of Africa past and present makes for a truly unique and unforgettable experience.
Wildlife viewing at Doro Nawas Camp concentrates on the game found in the riverbed and along the valleys that fill with floodwaters during particularly good rainy seasons. There are no large concentrations of wildlife, but this arid environment is home to desert-adapted elephant, gemsbok, springbok and variety of other species such as bat-eared fox. This includes the occasional glimpse of the endangered black rhino and cheetah. Birdlife is excellent with several Namibian endemics, such as Damara Hornbill, Carp’s Tit and Rüpell’s Korhaan.
A visit to Doro Nawas Camp is also a wonderful opportunity to contribute to economic empowerment of the local community while enjoying a luxury safari experience.
Andersson’s Camp – Etosha National Park
Andersson’s Camp is a family camp with a sensational waterhole, with a good chance of seeing some of Ongava’s famous white and black rhino – in amongst a variety of other game.
Andersson’s Camp takes its name from Charles Andersson, the Swedish explorer who first ‘discovered’ the Etosha Pan with Sir Francis Galton in 1851. Set against the backdrop of the low Ondundozonanandana Mountains, Andersson’s Camp is surrounded by scrub-covered plains and white calcrete soils.
This former farmstead has been tastefully rebuilt to modern-day standards. The old farmhouse now forms the main area of Andersson’s Camp with 20 tents (16 twin-bedded and 2 family units) radiating outwards into the secluded mopane woodlands typical of the region. Tents are a clever mix of calcrete stone cladding, canvas and wood, with double-door entrances and a small veranda that is an extension of the elevated wooden decks on which the tents are constructed. The en-suite bathrooms continue the unique design. The family units comprise two tents connected by a raised boardwalk.
Andersson’s Camp’s close proximity to Etosha Pan is ideal for full-day self-drives or guided drives into the Etosha National Park to take in the plethora of game found here.
Etosha National Park is Namibia’s premier wildlife destination. At almost the size of Switzerland it is certainly one of Africa’s largest game parks. Large herds of plains game concentrate around the waterholes in the dry season, whilst the summer months’ sporadic rainfall produces a profusion of new life – with pronking baby springbok and comical young wildebeest.
Andersson’s Camp is a model of eco-sensitive lodging and provides an authentic, safe and down-to-earth experience for small groups, families and independent travellers to Etosha National Park. It is also easily accessible by road. Energy-saving initiatives include solar-heated water for showers, while throughout the camp most of the natural vegetation has been retained.
