Situated on the 210km² private Kulala Wilderness Reserve south of Sesriem, Kulala Desert Lodge offers a close and spectacular view over the Namib-Naukluft dune sea to the west, and the Namib-Naukluft mountains to the east. Originally opened in 1996, the entire lodge was built to make the most of the vista. In addition to the dunes on its doorstep, however, its defining attraction remains a private entrance from the reserve into the Namib-Naukluft National Park.

Our view of Kulala Desert Lodge

Kulala is a very comfortable lodge in a lovely setting. On our most recent visits we've found the team really welcoming, and we've enjoyed the relaxed, informal atmosphere. The private entrance to the national park is a real bonus for guests on an organised excursion with the lodge as it's substantially closer than the main gate, offering a fantastic opportunity to make the most of the early-morning light. However, guests who prefer to drive themselves to the dunes should bear in mind that it's quite a long way to the main gate at Sesriem.
