One of the standout features of Little Kulala Camp is its exclusive-use gate to the Namib-Naukluft National Park. This privilege allows guests early and private access to the iconic red dunes of Sossusvlei and Dead Vlei, where you can witness the enchanting landscapes of the Namib Desert without the crowds.

Little Kulala Camp Accommodation

Standard Twin and Double Suites

The ten luxurious desert suites are designed to provide improved airflow, with brick and glass construction and a thatch roof for enhanced temperature control. Each room has a spacious deck, sala, and a private plunge pool that seamlessly blends into the desert setting. A private rooftop area offers romantic stargazing, and you can even enjoy a sleep-out experience on the bottom deck of your room.

Spacious Family Accommodation

If you're planning a family adventure to the heart of the Namib Desert, Little Kulala has you covered with a spacious and comfortable family unit. This unique family accommodation comprises two bedrooms, each furnished with two three-quarter beds and ensuite facilities.

The family unit offers the perfect blend of comfort and togetherness for your desert getaway. Each large, climate-controlled suite features a rooftop area where you can enjoy starlit dinners or stargazing sessions with your loved ones.

The suite's spacious sala below is an inviting space with a private plunge pool, providing a refreshing oasis in the desert heat. It's also an ideal area for outdoor siestas during the day, allowing you to relax and recharge. However, the true magic happens at night, as you can opt for sleep-outs under the magnificent desert stars, creating unforgettable family memories that will last a lifetime.

The Purpose of Little Kulala Camp

The Kulala Wilderness Reserve was once farmland within the Namib Desert, used for subsistence goat farming and had little indigenous wildlife. In 1996, Wilderness Safaris stepped in to rehabilitate the area. Today, the land and its nature have returned to their former glorious natural state, showcasing the success of conservation efforts.
