Little Kulala Lodge
Namibia is made up of sweltering desert and mountains of sand and rock. Here the great sum of sand, the space and the vast silence draws many globetrotters.
The Namib Desert is the oldest in the world; at its heart are the Sossusvlei, some of the highest dunes on earth, and one of the most stunning sights in Africa.
Nestled in the heart of the coral red Namib Desert, Little Kulala Lodge is a haven in harmony with Sossusvlei’s sea of dunes and sand. The stylish Little Kulala Lodge is the ideal and luxurious base from which to explore the splendid desert surroundings.
South African Designer Laurie Owen, famous for creating romantic and organic interiors, designed the look of Little Kulala’s interior. Here, the earthy style is a beautiful mix of rustic design and contemporary elements. There is a strong connection with nature and Little Kulala merges perfectly into the environment. The lodge plays on natural materials, neutral colors and organic shapes inspired by the nearby landscape of the Deadvlei, and the overall mood and feel is cool & serene.
This slice of heaven boasts 11 climate-controlled, thatched “kulalas” (the word means ‘to sleep’). The luxurious villas are spacious and consist of a large bedroom, living room, en-suite bathroom, indoor and outdoor showers, and a viewing deck with plunge pool. Each kulala has a rooftop “skybed” for a romantic stargazing experience.
The deck at your private cocoon is also used after dark for al fresco dining under the clear Namibian skies. Meanwhile, Little Kulala Lodge features an elegant entertainment area which includes a library, wine cellar, craft boutique, lounge and dining areas.
The sheer beauty of the desert landscape is the main lure; seeing game much less so. But there are animals to be seen, like the ostrich, aardwolf, springbok and bat-eared fox. Activities at Little Kulala start with morning guided drives to the magnificent Sossusvlei and Deadvlei area, where you can enjoy incredible views. Or if you like, opt for the early balloon excursions with a champagne breakfast being served at the landing site.
Heaven is indeed a place on earth!
