Such a lovely place, again superb service. Cannot fault it.

Kulala Desert Lodge review

Another spectacular location. Very different from Wolwedans. Not quite as isolated. We encountered many other groups around Dean Vlei and Soussesvlei.

It was very hot (up to 45C) so the pool was a great relief.

A great base for exploring the dunes

Very comfortable, and the views as the sun set were fantastic.

it is well worth taking the guided trip into Sossusvlei is a very good idea, i wouldn't want to do it on my own. it is well worth getting up early to see the sun rise.

Excellent stay at Kulala

This lodge was excellent from all points of view with well-trained and attentive staff. Our trip to the dunes, organized through Kulala was outstanding.

The chalets were beautifully designed with very scenic views.

Kulala Desert Lodge was great

Good accommodation, good guide, good food, great all-round experience. Smoking area on veranda should be restricted - we found it a bit off-putting.

The dune trip was good but a bit costly.

Great Dune Experience

Very friendly staff and you are made to feel welcome.

Chalets and view are excellent and hospitality very good.

Food and beverage was very good.

Location relative to the dunes and Sossusvlei excellent.

Would have liked a bit more time to find the dune lark-bird sighting.

Guide to Sossusvlei was very good and friendly. Excursion a bit more expensive than one would expect for 8 people

Kulala set in a beautiful location

Excellent location and night out under the stars.

The staff and specially the Manager were great and helped us out when we left our passports behind by sending them ahead to a future lodge.

The guide was more of a driver than a guide but was very knowledgeable if you asked a lot of questions.

For a lodge like this the food could be a lot better.

Kulala Desert Lodge review

It was not as comfortable as we had expected.
This was made worse by the cold weather . In the morning, we woke up with the temperature around 10° inside the tents!

The food was very disappointing -the worst of the holiday.
The staff was very helpful especially in managing the plane charter for the Mullaly family.
The guide was also very good.
No wifi
