Little Kulala Lodge

This is one of the most stylish lodges in Namibia’s extraordinary Sossusvlei area, which has the added advantage of being close to the towering sand dunes.

The acclaimed desert retreat has climate-controlled villas and an elegant entertainment area that includes al fresco fine dining as a highlight.

The 11 thatched villas merge impeccably into the desert landscape, with exquisite fittings and fixtures and innovative bleached decks, with a private plunge pool. Each villa has a rooftop ‘sky bed’ for romantic stargazing, with both indoor and outdoor showers.

Here we enjoy nature drives into the desert in 4×4 vehicles, hiking walking trails in the private 37 000-hectare Kulala Wilderness Reserve or in the Namib Naukluft National Park, and most spectacular of all – a visit to the red dunes of Sossusvlei, perhaps the most renowned natural place in Namibia.
