Little Kulala
Sossusvlei

This desert retreat is one of Namibia’s most luxurious and exclusive, and it is a supremely romantic base for those wishing to visit the world famous Sossusvlei dunes. With staggering 360-degree views of the wild Namib Desert, the camp sits on a 90,000-acre concession leased by Wilderness Safaris from the Namibian government. Here, in the middle of nowhere, you’ll find eleven immaculately styled “kulalas” (the word means ‘to sleep’), one of which is a family room, which all merge seamlessly with the breath-taking desert landscape.

Each thatched bungalow is connected by a sand path and comes with air-conditioning, a furnished outdoor deck with its own private plunge pool, as well as indoor and outdoor bathrooms, floor-to-ceiling glass walls and rooftop ‘skybeds’ allowing guests to sleep under the stars with zero light pollution. At the centre of the lodge is a beautifully decorated structure housing a lounge, indoor and outdoor dining areas, a library, craft boutique, wine cellar, bar and a swimming pool. The décor throughout is chic and modern using earthy tones, wood, wicker and canvas-upholstered furniture and bleached-white wood flooring.

The main attraction here, in terms of activities, are the early morning visits to the Sossusvlei sand dunes, which is a truly astonishing sight and one of the most alluring experiences in Namibia. Guests can also embark on wonderfully romantic balloon safaris to view the desert from above at first light, or visit Deadvlei at dawn – a gigantic salt pan framed by dunes lit up with shifting colours by the rising sun.

Game drives and nature walks are also highly recommended; experience the complete solitude and stirring beauty of the Namib Desert whilst learning about the fascinating desert-adapted wildlife such as ostrich and gemsbok, as well as larger predators such as the spotted hyena, the brown hyena and even cheetah. As the cool night falls smaller creatures like the bat-eared fox and aardwolf can be seen.

One of the gladdest moments in life is the departure upon a distant journey into unknown lands.

Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
