Little Kulala review

Little Kulala is a great location to visit Sossuvlei and the sand dunes of the Namib desert The scenery is stunning and the camp is beautifully presented to take full advantage.

Game viewing is limited - you will see plenty of Oryx but not much else although we did come across a side winding adder in the dunes. At night it is amazingly quiet and peaceful. Each lodge has a roof terrace and it is possible to sleep in the open, which we did but note that at this time of year (July) it gets very cold at night and into the morning.

The camp was well run. The guides were helpful and pleasant. Likewise the food, general areas of the camp and the laundry service were all very good.

Little Kulala review

We had a lovely time at little Kulala - it's a beautiful location with great staff. It was a pity it was too cold and windy to use the outdoor spaces as much as we would have liked - the terrace and roof area of the tent were very attractive places to sit.

I was a bit confused by the room to room massage service - it was unclear if it was included in the price and the lady taking bookings behaved quite strangely when I said I didn't want to book one (looked at me as if I was crazy and then started explaining what it was all over again - all I had said was "no thank you" which shouldn't have been too hard to understand....).

The highlight of the activities was driving through and climbing up the red sand dunes, and the quad biking was also fun.

Little Kulala review

Very luxurious lodge with excellent service all round. Fantastic location and high quality food. Really liked the evening entertainment provided by the floodlit area around the watering hole attracting visitors whilst dining and when our guide took us scorpion hunting before dinner, equipped with UV light.

The dunes were obviously the reason we were there and our activities there did not disappoint.

Little Kulala review

Fabulous camp, lovely setting, great staff, super guide (who we had to ourselves!).

Loved the way he drew maps on the windscreen with his texter ! Really knowledgeable about history, culture, politics, etc. Food good. Red dunes at Sossouvlei( sp?) are very special...Trip to Sesriem worthwhile...

Excellent activities and a top quality lodge

As this is marketed as one of Wilderness Safaris Premier Camps, we were expecting great things and we weren't disappointed. The rooms were fantastic, and we loved the floor to ceiling windows which allowed us to watch ostriches wandering past at a very close distance. Whilst the air-con was hardly eco-friendly, we have to admit it was most welcome on a couple of exhaustingly hot afternoons. One point to note is that the plunge pool was effectively a mud-bath because wind had blown so much sand into it. Can't be helped but it wasn't useable and maybe something Wilderness will need to address if they are going to promote their presence.

In terms of activities, we really enjoyed the trip to the dunes and Soussevlei which do leave very early but necessarily so, because of the heat. We also enjoyed the trip to the canyon although this left quite early in the afternoon when the heat was at its highest and we really did have to drag ourselves out of the room. We also opted for an afternoon sundowner trip on our first day and this was also good - the location for the drinks was breathtaking, supplemented by seeing a group of mountain zebra as we stopped.

Finally, both the service and the quality of the food in the lodge were unsurpassed by any of the future lodges. It really was top notch without being aloof.

Little Kulala review

Wonderful place, couldn't fault it. After having had an accident at a previous lodge the staff went out of their way to help me all they could. They were efficient and kind on just the right balance.

My husband went on the trip to the dunes and the dead vlei and the photographs he brought back are stunning.

Would love to go back.

Little Kulala review

On my first night I was the only guest and on the second there was just a couple who I didn't see much of.

I was extremely well taken care of - dinner with the manager the first night and with my guide on the second. In other words I didn't have to feel lonely.

The guide, Nicky, was fun and very knowledgeable so I had a very good time. I loved his way of using the windscreen as a whiteboard, writing explanations etc about what he was talking about.

Little Kulala review

Very good lodge, albeit larger and less intimate than Boulders.

Location not spectacular, but close to the park gate, which makes it convenient for early park entry.

Excellent food and "bushman's dinner". Our guide EpiMarkus was very nice and thoughtful.

Little Kulala review

What a gem of a place! The staff are so welcoming and so talented, their singing was superb and they put themselves out to give us a great time. We are so grateful for the lovely candle decoration of the wine-cellar where they served us a special dinner. The guide we had when Charles left, Willie, was very friendly and gave us a good trip to the wine-farm.

Sleeping on the roof was wonderful, no bugs and not cold, but it seemed a waste of time to sleep when there are so many stars to look at.
We loved the lay-out of the room and its exterior.
