Kulala Desert Lodge review

Lovely entry point to the start of our trip. Good guide Alfred and very friendly staff.

We thoroughly enjoyed Soussevlei and great recommendation from Alfred to visit the opposite way around to most people and therefore miss the crowds at Dead Vlei

Kulala Desert Lodge review

Kulala is a lovely lodge and we really enjoyed our time here. The staff were most friendly and helpful. Our guide on all our trips was Richard who was excellent. The morning trips at the Wilderness Lodges include lunch which makes them good value. We did the early morning trip to the dunes and we arrived before it became too crowded. We managed a walk across Dead Vlei without another soul in sight. it was stunning. We also took 2 afternoon drives with sundowners and Richard ably imparted his knowledge of the area.

Our room was excellent and the food superb, especially when you consider how far it has to be transported.

Excellent Dunes hike

One of the most memorable days of our two weeks in Namibia was the morning dunes hike. We had a wonderful guide and really enjoyed the discussion of the geography of the dunes. The view from the dunes was amazing. It was a wonderful morning.

Super amazing stay. Excellent excursions!

Amazing location, super rooms, excellent service, great food. No bad words to say at all. Sleeping on the roof under the stars was really nice and guided tours were great!

Go to the dunes!

A long drive to get here...and not great signage from the road. Lovely chalet with option to sleep on the roof which we tried!

One of our more expensive stops, I think but work it for the Soussvlei dune trip early morning-not to be missed.

Good food and wine and generally very relaxing. Pretty hot here in late Sept and we slept in the afternoon

Great views of the Dunes

Stunning location like something out of 'Star Wars' top class site and facilities but still with the personal touch have been to Wilderness Safari sites before and they do have a distinctive feel to them.

Visit to and up Big Daddy was excellent despite the mist as was the desert game drive and sunset. Food very good again and the staff entertained us after with local dances and songs which my wife was encouraged to join in with.

Just a quick point for info re the journey to Kulala the D854 was particularly rough, although they had the graders out.

magic in the desert

Kulala Lodge was an amazing experience. The visits to the Dunes was a unique experience and the Lodge itself was excellent, with friendly staff and great food.

We slept out under the stars on one of the evenings which was amazing.

Kulala Desert Lodge review

Very well located for an early morning trip into the Sossusvlei area. Fabulous staff, good food (with an excellent meal out in the Bush one evening) and great guiding. A two day stay allows you to get the best out of the area.

Our guide, Gabriel, was outstanding throughout. We enjoy a local Bush walk and tracking trip just after arrival. The highlight was an early start to walk up Big Daddy Dune and visit Dead Vlei; here, Gabriel excelled in his care of my wife as she nervously descended the dune face - a big thank you to Gabriel for his kindness and patience.

A tip - if you want to see Dead Vlei before the crowds, go as early as possible and go straight there; see the other parts of the area later. Any delay and you will share your experience with many others!

Brilliant location for Sossuvlei

Eco-friendly lodge with nice views and well-located for access to Sossuvlei.

Our guide for the dunes trip was not as enthused as others we met on the trip, but the excursion itself into the dunes was really amazing - a dream come true.

Food was great and when we left one of the staff spotted some trouble with one of our tires, and arranged for us to see the on-site mechanic who diagnosed damage to the tire wall changed the tire for us, which was amazing - he probably saved us a burst tire on the road!
