Set in a private reserve with direct access to the Namib Naukluft National Park and the famous red dunes of Sossusvlei, Little Kulala is located at the heart of Namibia's Namib Desert. The lodge is stylishly designed using neutral colours and organic material so that it blends into the landscape and is cleverly positioned to maximise your views of the dunes.

The lodge's spacious villas offer privacy and seclusion but you will want to do some exploring before settling: set off by 4X4 in the early morning for a drive through the desert and into the Namib Naukluft National Park for Sossusvlei's magnificent, towering sand dunes. Guided nature drives and walks on the private reserve provide a unique understanding of your spectacular surroundings and, for a truly unforgettable experience, rise early for an optional dawn ride over the Namib in a hot-air balloon.


  • Luxurious, stylish & remote desert lodge
  • Private reserve drives, walks & quad bike excursions
  • Endless views of the Namib Desert
  • Private entrance to the dunes of Sossusvlei

Standard Twin Room

The camp comprises 11 luxury suites or 'kulalas', beautifully designed using neutral colours, organic shapes and enormous glass windows to maximise the views. Each unit is designed for comfort and is fully equipped with an en suite bathroom, air conditioning and a fully stocked minibar.

All suites provide excellent views from their private verandahs, flat rooftops and even from their outdoor showers. They also have their own private salas and plunge pools. For an unforgettable night in the desert, you can choose to sleep under the stars as a bed can be prepared for you on the flat roof of your suite. These 'star beds' let you fall asleep under the blanket of the Milky Way and wake up to the golden dawn of the desert.

Other room types

Inter-leading rooms are available for those travelling with children.


Using thatch, wood and glass, the lodge blends both effortlessly and stylishly into the desert environment. The lounge and bar area flows onto a spacious wooden deck that doubles as an alfresco dining room with endless views over the desert.

The deck extends towards the refreshing swimming pool that also boasts magnificent views. Select a book from the lodge library and spend a lazy afternoon around the pool or browse through the African crafts and artefacts that can be bought at the lodge's boutique.


Meals are usually served at individual tables on the extensive deck from which guests can enjoy beautiful views although on chilly evenings meals are served in front of the large fireplace.

Excellent wine from the lodge's underground wine cellar complements each meal. Do not miss out on a picnic brunch surrounded by the red Soussusvlei dunes, and a romantic dinner for two can be arranged in the lodge's atmospheric cosy cellar.

David Aulen

Suzy Freeman

"Little Kulala was amazing. The huts, the food and the staff were awesome."

Don Dickson

This was a great place to go. The hot air balloon ride was really fun, with great views of the Red Dunes and a lot of wildlife on the move at sunrise. Our guide, Anton, did an outstanding job. He went out of his way to make sure everything was done a bove and beyond.

"We loved all of the hotels and activities, especially the Little Kulala!"

Fedele Di Maggio

Little Kulala • Service - good • Rooms – very nice given the location. Air conditioner was struggling at times as insulation was poor • Communal areas – very nice • Internet access – limited and tedious, though relatively acceptable speed • Foo d - good • Beverages – good but basic wine • Game drives/activities – basically only drive to dunes, balloon (which we could not do due to weather) and quad bike are worth taking; cars used a bit overaged • Guides – very nice • Logistics – issue as I mentioned was lack of scenic flight on transfer out, unclear why not offered

"The staff and facilities at Little Kulala were excellent. They throw in a quad bike ride, a massage, and dune climbing and we genuinely felt like we'd been away for 5 weeks, not just 5 days."

Robert Cimino

"Little Kulala - was excellent! The facility, the people and the food. We had no complaints at all and we loved it."

Joanne Parker

"We really had nice tented accommodation. Superbly close to the dunes. The kids had a ball wandering around and climbing the rocks and into the dry river bed. The food here was the simplest of all the places we stayed in. It was still nice, though."

Sandy Varney

Our trip was ABSOLUTELY wonderful. Thank you for all your hard work and planning. I can hardly tell you what our favourite part or lodge was because each was so different and wonderful in it's own style. Sossusvlei and the amazing sand dunes had su ch majestic beauty that the lack if "real" animals went unnoticed. Also Little Kuala truly was a special camp and well worth the money. Etosha had amazing water holes and a desert feel with lots of animals in herds. It reminded me of the Lion King movie. (This was probably the only place where my planning was caught off guard. I did not realize that Ethosha Park is so big that you actually had to stay in several camps to see it all and to see the different animals - but then it is not like I had any more days in my itinerary to include that so it really was a mute point.)

Nevine Hunt

Stunning, fabulous, really fantastic interior design both the main building and our Kulala - the family one which we had basically meant we had 2 separate Kulalas with the outside area/ plunge pool inbetween - so was more than perfect. Very good food too. Everything was great, the only thing that let it down was the staff. Considering this was the most expensive place it should have been much better 'Wilderness style' than Anderson Camp. The guest relations girl, Anne-Marie was fabulous but she was the only one.

Dave Thomas

The lodge at Little Kulala was very nice and the setting around the waterhole was good. We went on the drives morning and evening and saw some game but the highlight was the dunes and the dead vlei. Again 3 days was right for us . We enjoyed sleeping on the roof under the stars.
