Kulala, which means 'to sleep' on Oshiwambo, is the name sake of the lodge hidden at the foot of the imposing Sossusvlei dunes. A private entrance to Namib Naukluft Park makes Kulala Desert Lodge the closest location to Sossusvlei. Accommodations are made up of 23 thatched and canvas 'kulalas' each of which is built on a wooden platform creating a private terrace and has a deck on the flat rooftop where bedrolls are placed for guests to sleep under the countless stars on a Namibia tour. En-suite facilities house a sink, shower, and flush toilets.
Enjoy the main areas of camp which include lounge, bar, dining room, plunge pool, and a veranda that overlooks a watering hole. Kulala Desert Lodge is the ideal place to base a visit to the Sossusvlei Dunes.

Beyond expectations! Then again we weren't sure what to expect. Lovely stay at the lodge, met other like-minded travelers (many had their trips planned by Adventure Life) and the owner was a gracious hostess. It felt like you were one happy family, visiting with a favorite aunt.
