Tucked at the foot of the majestic Sossusvlei dunes, Kulala Desert Lodge provides guests with their own private entrance into Namib Naukluft Park, an optimal destination for those looking for a truly wild and remote desert experience. Guests are accommodated in 19 thatch-and-canvas kulalas (meaning "to sleep" in the local Oshiwambo language) with en suite bathrooms and private verandas. Each unit is built on a wooden platform to take advantage of the cooling desert breezes. The flat rooftop of each kulala supports a deck where bedrolls are placed for guests who want to sleep beneath the splendidly starry Namibian skies. The main lodge, with its northern Africa-inspired décor, includes a comfortable lounge, fully stocked bar, dining area, plunge pool and wrap-around veranda that overlooks the camp’s waterhole. The waterhole attracts a plethora of wildlife including gemsbok, springbok, ostrich and jackal, and provides an ideal vantage point from which to view and photograph the arresting desert scenery.
