Situated on the 210km2 private Kulala Wilderness Reserve south of Sesriem, Kulala Desert Lodge offers a close and spectacular view over the Namib Sand Sea to the west, and the Namib-Naukluft Mountains to the east. Originally opened in 1996, the 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 and has long been a favorite of the Expert Africa team. While the rooms may be in need of renovation, the welcoming team and relaxed, informal atmosphere that we have always enjoyed remain unchanged. 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.
