Luxury Holidays At Little Kulala

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.

Property Highlights:expand_more
Wildlife Encounters

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.


Boasting a unique and truly secluded desert location, Little Kulala epitomises romance. Each private villa houses its very own plunge pool and a sensual outdoor shower, offering you complete intimacy on your unforgettable couple's retreat. Start your day watching the sun rise over the stunning landscape, explore the desert on safari, before returning to Little Kulala to unwind with a side-by-side massage. Enjoy an exquisite, candle-lit meal for two overlooking the dunes - accompanied by the finest bottle from the Wine Cellar - before returning to your private 'sky bed' to gaze at the stars together.

Spa & Wellness

After an exhilarating day exploring the enchanting Namib Desert, truly relax and unwind with an indulgent and rejuvenating massage on the luxurious wraparound veranda, beneath the glorious African sky.


Children over six years old are welcome. 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.
