Watch oryx and other desert-adapted wildlife cross the highest sand dunes on earth when you stay at Little Kulala in Namibia’s stunning Sossusvlei.
Little Kulala is one of the most luxurious lodges in Namibia. Each of the suites is large and set on a vast area of bleached decking into which is set a private plunge pool, enabling you to relax in privacy and enjoy the views towards the dunes.
Your suite showcases a large bed (king size or two twins), elegant furnishings and an en suite bathroom. On two sides it has floor-to-ceiling windows and the whole thing is set under quite a quirky, circular thatched roof so that it resembles a updated version of a traditional native kulala. Each suite also has a flat roof top “skybed” where you can choose to sleep out, marvelling at the galaxy above.
By day, expert guides will take you on drives into the towering Sossusvlei dunes, fascinating desert walks and even unforgettable morning hot-air balloon trips. Another of the salt pans worth seeing is Deadvlei, where even in the dry season oryx, springbok and ostrich can be seen wandering, feeding on the sparse vegetation along the watercourses. This is a singularly beautifully wild and romantic spot, surrounded by dunes that extend as far as the eye can see.
