Wilderness Little Kulala

Luxurious desert retreat with views of the dunes

Wake up in the middle of the desert

Offering more of a ‘boutique’ polish and size set in the 37,000- hectare private Kulala Wilderness Reserve, and a stone’s throw from the Sossusvlei dunes, this beautiful lodge is easily the most luxurious in the area.

Wilderness Little Kulala consists of 11 climate-controlled thatched suites, sympathetically designed so as to merge deceptively into the desert landscape. Each one is air conditioned with an en-suite bathroom, and has its own private outdoor pool and shower. The rooms are huge and with floor-to-ceiling windows designed to spoil you with the incredible views that flood in. Or take it a step further and star gaze in style on your own private rooftop.

The main lodge is built on three levels and provides an elegant entertainment area, with a spacious lounge, stylish dining area , well-stocked reference library and its own wine cellar to boot.


Eleven self-contained villas, each with private pool

Air conditioning

The impact of your stay:

  • In the desolate Sossusvlei dunes, Kulala Desert Lodge embraced the ambitious task of ecological restoration in a once arid land used for goat farming. The result is a transformed desert oasis, now brimming with life.
  • In rural Namibia, environmental damage is frequently intertwined with poverty. To alleviate the strain on natural resources, Wilderness has established programs for empowerment, enterprise, and skills training. These include initiatives such as small-scale farmer development, business training, mentorship, and school scholarships.
  • Wilderness’s impact in Namibia spans a cumulative area of approximately 167,310 hectares. Operating under the Namibia Large Fauna Programme, they engage in continuous conservation initiatives for desert-adapted wildlife species. This includes large predators such as lions, leopards, brown and spotted hyenas, as well as desert-adapted elephants, black rhinos, giraffes and other ungulates.
