Kulala Desert Lodge 

An intimate desert lodge close to the Sossusvlei Dunes

Within the 67,000 private acres of the Kulala Wilderness Reserve, the Kulala Desert Lodge is a tranquil, secluded paradise in the arid Namib Desert. The closest point of access to the iconic Sossusvlei dunes, this is a fantastic base from which to explore the reserve, with various activities on offer including scenic drives, nature walks, and for those seeking a little more adventure, an early morning hot air balloon safari.

Thatched rooms with en-suite bathrooms offer beautiful views of the reserve, while a rooftop sleeping area allows for a night spent beneath a blanket of stars. In the main guest area, spend an afternoon relaxing by the pool or in the lounge and bar, or watch out for wildlife on the large wrap-around veranda overlooking the waterhole.
