overview

As you travel through the remote landscape neighbouring Namib-Nakluft National Park, you’ll find the peaceful lodge that is Little Kulala. With burnt orange sand rippling as far as the eye can see, it’s the perfect location to explore the dunes of Sossusvlei.

Of the luxury camps in this region, this one has the advantage of having it's own private entrance to the dunes of Sossusvlei, which is a huge plus!

About

Little Kulala’s home is the 27 000-hectare Kulala Wilderness Reserve, a pristine wilderness sited in Namibia’s Namib, nicknamed ‘The Living Desert’. A welcome oasis, the camp lies along the dry Auab riverbed. You can’t get much closer to the renowned dunes of Sossusvlei and the haunting panoramas of Dead Vlei, accessible through an exclusive-use gate.

Rooms

Little Kulala has 11 climate-controlled suites with one designed as a spacious two-bedroom family unit. Each chalet boasts a secluded setting, enclosed by private fencing and elevated on a wooden deck. Enhancing the desert experience, each chalet features its own personal pool and roll out bed on a shaded sala is perfect for an afternoon siesta or starry sleep-out. The generously sized bathroom includes a double shower and an additional outdoor shower.

Activity

Climb the 300-metre red dunes at Sossusvlei and gaze upon oceans of sand. Hike through a canyon carved by water over the millennia. Float above the world’s oldest desert in a hot air balloon, and see it come alive on nature walks, drives, e-bikes, or low-impact quad bikes. At dusk hear the call of barking geckos, and at night go with a guide on a scorpion safari. Stargaze in one of the darkest places on Earth, and sleep out under the stars.

Children

Children of 6 years and older are accommodated. For families travelling with children between 6 and 12 years, private activities need to be booked and paid for. Children between 6 and 16 years must share with an adult in the same room. While there is no age limitation for hot air ballooning, there is a restriction on height. Children need to be a minimum of 1.3 metres to comfortably see over the basket.
