The 23 suites have thatch roofs, canvas sides and a raised floor that help the natural circulation and overhead fans give it a boost. The private patios have a generous thatch covering and the adobe bathroom at the back has a flat roof for sleeping under the stars on warm nights.
The main lodge wouldn't look out of place beside a North African oasis. It has gnarled trees for beams, stone flooring, adobe walls and a thatch roof. Of more importance than the architecture are the shaded swimming pool, the bar and the wrap-around verandah that emphasise the staggering scale of this ancient desert.
Kulala means 'to sleep' in Oshiwambo and while your night's sleep at Kulala Lodge may be one of the most peaceful in recorded history, it is the land that surrounds you that has been in a great state of slumber. The Namib is the oldest desert in the world.
Guided excursions to Sossusvlei dunes by private entrance into the park; afternoon Sesriem Canyon excursion; sundowner nature drives; guided nature walks; guided Scorpion night walks; guided E-bikes; stargazing (moon dependent); hot air balloon ride followed by champagne breakfast; helicopter & scenic flights; waterhole
Flora and fauna in this fragile ecosystem have developed fascinating attributes to cope with extremes of heat and extended periods of drought. The lodge overlooks a waterhole that is visited by gemsbok, springbok, wild ostriches, bat-eared fox, aardwolf, hares, jackals and the elusive Brown hyena.
