There are 11 kulalas (chalets) at the ultra-luxurious Little Kulala Camp in the splendid Sussosvlei region of Namibia, ingeniously staying cool through their clever design and essential air-conditioning. Travel with Voyage2Africa to this unique accommodation that merges into the browns and reds of the surrounding desert landscape. Think plunge pools, outdoor showers, neutral decor, wicker furniture, natural textures at Little Kulala, wonderful reflections of the Dead Vlei outside.
Choose to sleep out under the stars on a private rooftop at your chosen five-star lodge just 17 km from Sesriem inside the private 37 000-ha Kulala Wilderness Reserve. In fact, Little Kulala is the closest luxury desert retreat to the iconic Sossusvlei dunes so visitors enjoy exclusive private concession access and the camp’s location makes early morning dune visits (to see Sossusvlei at its sunrise best) very easy.
Each thatched suite features its own plunge pool, private rooftop area for stargazing, a magical sleep-out experience on the bottom deck, luxury fittings, as well as indoor and outdoor showers. Natural shades of earthy colours and décor plus the creative architecture promote the easy blending in of Little Kulala to the desert landscape. Activities make the most of the solitude and stark beauty of the Namib Desert, with nature drives and guided walks revealing the majesty and mystery of the sand sea.
Situated near Sossusvlei, between the vast sand dunes and sprawling deserts of southern Namibia, Little Kulala Camp is only 17 km from Sesriem inside the private 37 000 ha Kulala Wilderness Reserve.

The 11 kulalas (chalets) are kept as cool as possible through their clever design and essential air-conditioning – the accommodation merges into the browns and reds of the surrounding desert landscape. Think plunge pools, outdoor showers, neutral decor, wicker furniture, natural textures – wonderful reflections of the Dead Vlei outside. Choose to sleep out under the stars on a private rooftop!
Built on three levels, the main areas are designed under peaked thatched roofs reflecting the Sossusvlei dunes outside. White washed wooden floors, diverse use of textures and colours, contrasting with the browns and reds of the desert outside and the green of the camelthorns growing thickly nearby.
The open plan building is curved for relaxation while large mirrors placed strategically create the illusion of even more space. Enjoy the tea room, the bar and many seating areas along curved stone walls – the lounge steps out onto a partly covered thatched deck some of which wind around camel thorn trees. Sample a romantic meal for two in the wine cellar in amongst lines of fine wines and champagne bottles.
Relax in the library where scatter cushions and local baskets adorn the floors. The small egg-shaped pool is great for cooling off in and guests can enjoy dinners on the shaded deck beside the pool.
Set off on exciting game drives in the early mornings to hopefully see bat-eared foxes, black-backed jackals, elusive aardwolfs, gemsbok and springbok. Drive to Sossusvlei and Sesriem Canyon or set off through the gate into the Namib-Naukluft National Park. Nature walks and trails are fantastic but hot! Early morning balloon excursions can also be arranged.
