About Kulala Desert Lodge

The Kulala Desert Lodge is ideally situated on the edge of the oldest desert in the world. The views from this traditionally styled African Lodge range from the famous red dunes of Sossusvlei to the vast plains and magnificent mountainous scenery of this area.  The Lodge is situated on a 21 000 hectare private property that borders the Naimb Naukluft Park.

The main part of the Lodge is built from a traditional combination of clay and thatch. Accommodation consists of twelve thatched and canvas chalets built on raised wooden platforms with en-suite bathrooms and showers. Experience the vast night sky and sense of open space of the Namib Desert by moving your mattress to the rooftop of your chalet for a unique nights rest. Kulala Desert Lodge also has a lounge, bar dining area, viewing platform and a small pool.

Activities include early morning guided game drives to the Sossusvlei dunes where breakfast can be enjoyed al-fresco.Game drives and walks are also available on the private reserve. Whilst the area is not game rich, it does offer the opportunity to view more interesting desert game and smaller desert-adapted fauna and flora.Nature walks and night safaris are another way to take in this unique environment.

Another option, at an extra cost, is early morning ballooning, beginning at first light. The 60-90 minute balloon safari offers a truly unique experience to soar silently above the magnificent sand dunes and desert, with a champagne breakfast being served at your landing site.
