The 25 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.
