Kulala Desert Lodge

Fantastic lodge and location. Throughly enjoyed the trip to Sossusuvlei and Dead Vlei, the lodge had its own private access to the dunes which meant we got there at sunrise.

The E-bike trip into the desert was an extra we found very enjoyable. Sleeping on the roof of the lodge under the stars was an experience.

As is the norm in Namibia we found, the food, wine and staff were excellent.

Kulala Desert Lodge

Delightful welcome from staff with cold towels and cold drink. Beautiful property with wonderful views of the dunes from the rooms which are well-appointed, attractively decorated and comfortable. Enjoyed a swim in the very chilly pool. Good meals taken on the terrace with excellent merlot included. Great views of the waterhole.

Next day an excellent tour to the dunes with a very knowledgeable and interesting guide (Rocky).

Highly recommend a stay here.

Excellent location near Namib

Great location with private access to the park . We only had one night here, but we were glad we did, taking drives in the afternoon and the next early morning. Our guide, Castro, was very good and informative, making sure we did not overdo it on the dunes.

Good rooms, ( slept on the roof under the stars !) and food.

Beautiful Desert Lodge

When you first arrive at a place like this from th UK, it’s a real surprise.

The location in the desert is quite spectacular.

The rooms are all spread out away from the main building and some, like the one we were in are quite a long walk from the main building with a rather uneven path. We really loved the stay there with all the activities already booked and planned.

Our guide Richard was brilliant, and looked after us extremely well, not only with the trips out but with making sur that we were in position in time for sundowners each evening

Kulala Desert Lodge review

This hotel was amazing - the facilities were modern, with beautiful decor. The staff were also so welcoming and hospitable.

We went on afternoon rides both evenings we were there and really enjoyed all of the guides (especially Richel). It was my husband's birthday while we were there and they set up our bed on the room of our lodge so we could fall asleep under the stars. They also prepared him a big birthday cake and made a big celebration for him with all of the staff members, dancing and singing in the local language.

It was very nice that it was all inclusive and we really enjoyed our final ride visiting the dunes our last morning.

2 nights at Kulala Desert Lodge

Excellent location. Busy lodge. Very photogenic area (Sossusvlei and Deadvlei). Pleasant guiding by Castro. For me the highlight was the ballooning!
