Bordering the Namib Naukluft Park in the heart of the Namib Desert - thought to be the oldest in the world - this acclaimed luxury retreat boasts staggering views of the wind-sculpted red dunes and clear, starry skies of Sossusvlei and offers a collection of activities that make the very most of its unique location,  including walking trails and nature-drives through Kulala Wilderness Reserve. The main lodge - with its stylish lounge, wine cellar, library and dining area - has been inspired by the environment and features a wraparound veranda with plunge pool overlooking a waterhole, while the eleven stunning, climate-controlled kulalas each comprise a bedroom with floor-to-ceiling windows, an en suite bathroom with shower and an expansive deck area with a private plunge pool, shower and an outdoor sala, while up on each kulala's roof, there's a 'skybed' perfect for romantic star-gazing. Little Kulala prides itself on being as organic as possible - using natural linen, pure cotton and natural vegetable dyes in its exquisitely beautiful interiors - and is an isolated, peaceful gem, ideal for spending a few nights in blissful ignorance of the outside world.

A private area on the rooftop provides guests with an opportunity to spend an evening beneath the stars, confortably settled on an open-air skybed.

Meals are served in the main dining areas and, on occasion, al fresco beneath the starry, romantic Namibian sky.

Children over six years old are welcome. All parties with children of twelve years old and younger are required to book and pay for private activities (at an extra cost) unless they have booked the camp on an exclusive-use basis or have filled a vehicle (6 guests) and would, thus, have had sole-use of the vehicle. The following age restrictions apply (where these activities are applicable to each lodge/camp): For boat trips, children must be six years of age or over, twelve years old for safari walks and at least sixteen years old for quad-biking.

In Addition

As well as game-drives, guests can enjoy an early-morning hot-air balloon flight over the apricot-coloured dunes, followed by a Champagne breakfast on landing (at an additional charge).

On Safari

Little Kulala inhabits a remote and arid desert landscape and, as a result, is nothing like your typical safari experience. Barren, yet staggeringly beautiful, the landscape is littered with small but fascinating creatures, from insects, reptiles and rodents, to larger desert-adapted animals such as Ostriches, Dune Larks and Springboks. Guided morning drives transport guests into the colossal dunes of Sossusvlei within the Namib Desert - known to be the oldest desert in the world. Alternatively, request nature-drives, walking trails or an early-morning hot-air balloon safari (at an additional cost), which traverses the remote sand plains from above.
