Little Kulala - top notch base for Sossuvlei

Little Kulala is a smart, modern resort. We arrived having just completed a 3 day walk, camping out under the stars so felt a little scruffy but were soon put at our ease.

Little Kulala is all-inclusive which we didn't realise beforehand so all meals, drinks and activities are included. We were assigned a guide and we agreed an itinerary for our 2 night stay. Of course this included visiting Sossusvlei, Deadvlei and climbing one of the Dunes but also included a nature drive and quad biking near the lodge (not on the dunes!). Little Kulala is lucky to have private access to Sossusvlei so do not be put off by how far it is from the main gate.

The level of service is excellent and the food is healthy and delicious. A highly recommended place to stay and be well looked after.

Little Kulala review

Great welcome from Andrew who explained how everything worked, the maids whisked away our laundry and returned it promptly.

Willem was an interesting and helpful guide and took us for Sundowners and for sunrise over the dunes. Good food, choice of fish or meat which was good.

Enjoyed sitting on the deck in the shade.

A breathtaking lodge that we'll never forget.

Little Kulala is a very special place to stay. It's pretty expensive but we felt that the cost was justified by the lodge's location, décor and food. The dinners we had were some of the best we had throughout our honeymoon. The sundowners were spectacular, and the sand dunes absolutely amazing. The staff were relaxed, friendly and helpful.

One thing it would have been good to know (or have highlighted) was the lack of air conditioning in the rooms. Most of the time this wasn't a problem, but in the middle of the day between activities it was difficult to get any respite from the heat,

Desert Luxury

Much more game than expected, still mystied as to how it survives. Don't expect to see sunrise over the dunes, but great sunset from the Naukluft hills. Excellent guide.

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.
