Kulala Desert Lodge Northern African inspired lodge near the sands of Sossusvlei

The spirit of Kulala Desert Lodge

Situated on the private Kulala Wilderness Reserve, Kulala Desert Lodge lies within easy reach of the iconic dunes of Sossusvlei. The lodge boasts 23 thatch and canvas kulalas with ensuite bathrooms and private verandas. Each unit is built on a wooden platform to catch the cooling breeze, and boasts a viewing deck on the flat rooftop.

With its North African inspiration, the main guest area houses a lounge, bar and dining area. A plunge pool irresistibly draws the eye out onto the desert landscape and a wrap-around veranda offers perfect views of the waterhole in front of the lodge. Early morning drives depart to the famous Sossusvlei dunes, while a selection of nature walks and drives are also available in the private reserve. Hot air ballooning and camel rides are among the more unusual adventures on offer.

What we love about Kulala Desert Lodge

  • Ask to have a bedroll prepared on your rooftop deck and fall asleep under the dazzling stars in Namibia’s clear skies.
  • Venture out on the main deck in the cool of the morning or at sunset and try to snap the perfect photo of the breathtaking desert vista and wildlife.
  • The private gate means that trips to Sossusvlei reach the dunes early, while the sun is still rising.
