Little Kulala

A luxurious retreat in the dunes of Sossusvlei

Little Kulala is a luxurious retreat situated in the exclusive 67,000 Kulala Wilderness Reserve. Guests at this secluded lodge enjoy unparalleled proximity and private access to the famously large red dunes of Sossusvlei. Be at iconic Deadvlei at first light, before any other visitors arrive, and climb the towering dune known as Big Daddy before the sun burns away the morning mist.

Inside each suite you’ll find indoor and outdoor showers, a private plunge pool as well as a romantic rooftop starbed for contemplation of night desert skies.
