Kulala Desert Lodge
Location
Sossusvlei, Namibia

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 23 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 starry Namibian skies. The main lodge, with its northern Africa-inspired decor, 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.
Little Kulala
Location
Kulala Wilderness Reserve, Namibia

Little Kulala lies within the private Kulala Wilderness Reserve, the only reserve with direct access to Sossusvlei and the Namib – the world’s oldest desert with the world’s tallest sand dunes. The flight itself to the camp provides jaw-dropping views of the spectacular landscape that has made Namibia a favorite feature for National Geographic magazine. The camp offers magnificent dune scenery to the west and a rugged, mountainous Namib escarpment to the north and east, with grassy plains and “fairy circles” filling the space in between. The camp’s 11 stylish thatched villas or kulalas (meaning ‘to sleep’ in the local Oshiwambo language) merge impeccably into the timeless desert landscape, with exquisite furnishings and fixtures, innovative bleached decks, and indoor and outdoor showers. Each villa has its own private plunge pool and a rooftop 'skybed' for romantic stargazing. The main area offers a relaxed lounge, dining room, bar and curio shop all under thatch.

Early morning game drives to the magnificent dunes take guests through a private gate into the reserve, for close-up views. Guided drives and walks are also offered on the private reserve for a chance to see desert animals and smaller desert fauna and flora. During our explorations we may see lone oryx, ostrich or other wildlife as they traverse the massive golden dunes.
