Accommodation, Southern Namibia

Kulala Desert Lodge


This beautiful lodge has a swimming pool, bar and dining area overlooking the stark desert landscape of the Namib. Each room at Kulala has a rooftop sleeping platform offering guests the unique opportunity to sleep under the stars.

The main building has a restaurant with outside dining options and serves tasty regional and international cuisine. There is also a well-stocked bar, lounge and swimming pool. The accommodation is in private bungalows with private verandas and seating enabling far-reaching views across the desert landscape. The bungalows have thatched roofs, and traditional African cloth décor inside with chairs and a small table.

The lodge sits within the 37,000-hectare private Kulala Wilderness Reserve and offers nature drives in the reserve as well as guided excursions to the dunes of Sossusvlei through Kulala’s exclusive private entrance, allowing you to reach the dunes earlier than other visitors.

If you require a more exclusive ambience, opt for Little Kulala.

Beautiful country with a wide range of opportunities on offer – wildlife viewing, varied scenery, culture and memorable sunsets. The colours, shapes and shadows of Deadvlei at dawn will stay with me forever. Very helpful and informative discussions with Alan Godwin before booking.  Everyone in country did their bit at the right time in the right place. I felt very well looked after. The care and attention to detail was outstanding and this helped me to relax and enjoy the experience and enabled me to begin to make new but different memories.
