Kulala Desert Lodge

Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

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.
