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.

Little Kalula

A typical Wilderness camp. Very comfortable, excellent service and food. It's easy to become blasé about Wilderness but they maintain such consistently high standards of service and ethics that they should be encouraged to continue in this vain.

Guide very good but not quite up to the standards of Wildernesses guides in Zambia and Botswana.

Little Kulala review

First class accommodation, well executed with attentive and active managers. The rooms were spacious with lovely private relaxing space. Staff were friendly and helpful. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Our full day trip to Sossusvlei was excellent. Our guide was Willem who was very knowledgeable and gave us plenty of time to look around and take photographs. We didn't feel that we were being rushed.

Oasis in the desert

I had a bad fall on our first night; the staff looked after me beautifully. My bruises were much helped by the magic hands of Ermelinde (massage therapist). A big thrill was the ostrich family with 17 chicks walking past our room.

The dunes were everything we hoped and then some. "A" earned bragging points by climbing Big Daddy. Our guide, Edward, was very good but somewhat hampered by a sprained ankle.

Desert and dunes at Little Kulala

As this was the first stop on our tour, we did not really have an appreciation of the Wilderness approach to guests, so had not realised that there would be a greater than usual engagement with the hotel staff and guides. This was not a problem once we worked it out, but we were a bit surprised when they came and stood by our table and chatted during dinner.

Having said this the staff were all fantastic, especially the temporary manager Gregory, and our guide Abner was knowledgeable, helpful and fun. The room was great - perhaps the whole place was a little 'over designed' for our tastes, but nevertheless a fantastic lodge and a great place to start the visit.

Incidentally your notes about additional charges for certain types of drinks - spirits and SA wines - were inaccurate. We were not charged for anything extra throughout the whole visit.
