Little Kulala Lodge

Situated on over 21 000 hectares (46 000 acres) of private property and bordering the Namib Naukluft Park, Little Kulala lies in the heart of the Namib and offers views of the famous red dunes of Sossusvlei, as well as magnificent mountainous scenery and vast open plains.

Little Kulala has eight thatched and canvas chalets of Kulalas, each built on a wooden platform to provide maximum airflow. A popular option with outdoor enthusiasts is to sleep under the stars - mattresses are placed on private stargazing platform on top of each room.

The main lodge has a lounge, bar, dining area and plunge pool, with a view of the dunes. The verandah overlooks a waterhole. Early morning guided game drives to the spectacular dunes are through a private gate on the Tsauchab River.

Game drives and walks are also offered on the private reserve. Here, guests can enjoy incredible views, desert game and smaller desert fauna and flora.

Another option, at an extra cost, is early morning ballooning, beginning at first light. The 60-minute balloon safari offers a truly unique experience to soar silently above the magnificent sand dunes and desert - with a champagne breakfast served at your landing site.


Each of the 8 "kulala" is especially adapted to the unique desert conditions, built on a platform to ensure maximum airflow; a thatch roof provides a cool respite from the sun. Each room has a private verandah with view of the majestic dunes without seeing the neighbours, and a private rooftop area on top of the bathroom gives guests the opportunity of spending a night under the magnificent night sky for which luxury bedrolls are available any time.


Meals are served in the magnificent dining area with views across the desert. In the morning you will have a light snack before your morning activities with a breakfast brunch served out in the dunes. Lunch and dinner are back at the Lodge where house wines are included with your evening meals.
