"Little Kulala review"
Our guide Ben was very helpful and it was a pleasure to be with him." See all these reviews: 18n in Namibia
The location is stunning. The quality of everything was superb. Customer service was excellent. We were made to feel so welcome and the staff were very sensitive to our circumstances. Food was delicious.
The drive to the sand dunes was spectacular and the experience of climbing them was special. The guide was brilliant and made it so much fun.
Drinks served on the drive in the evening sunset was a lovely experience. The staff presented us with a birthday cake and all joined in to sing. It was beautiful. An absolutely wonderful place in every way." See all these reviews: 18n in Namibia
"Priviledge to Stay at this Beautiful Lodge"
It was my birthday whilst we were there and the whole team made it very special, baking a cake and decorating my room, to the bottle of champagne given to me, and the singing of Happy Birthday after dinner by everyone.
The Dunes were amazing and we will carry away with us wonderful memories of our morning walking up them and running full tilt down the otherside." See all these reviews: 18n in Namibia
"Excellent first stop"
Sunrise Balloon Trip
Four balloons were taking off that day and we were lucky to be in one for eight people (rather than 16!). Each couple has a corner so no jockeying for position. Conditions terrific and we followed the dry river bed towards the dunes landing after about 1¼ hours. Our pilot Rob demonstrated great skill in manoeuvring both vertically and horizontally: also at the champagne breakfast where he hacked off the neck of a bottle of champagne with a machete finally knocking off the end in a flourish of fizz! Although expensive it is an absolute must-do experience. Stunning, serene and a photographer's dream." See all these reviews: 16n in Namibia
Overall, still a wonderful setting with exceptional rooms (rooftop outside bed for stargazing, plunge pool, ...) and we had a great time, just expected that little bit extra" See all these reviews: 20n in Namibia
"Wonderful lodge - cannot fault anything"
The staff were incredible - welcoming, friendly, helpful, with an excellent sense of humour, those to mention especially were Andrew, Ingrid, Rosa, Eduard, and our guide Chris. The activities were excellent, perfectly organised, both the two sundowners and the trip to Sossusvlei.
Definitely recommended!" See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia
"A desert gem"
If anything we found the service a little overwhelming as there were more staff than guests but this is perhaps a little churlish as everyone was helpful and informative.
The food is excellent and our guided trips were very good as well." See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia; 7n in Botswana; 2n in Zambia; 2n in South Africa
"Little Kulala - top notch base for Sossuvlei"
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." See all these reviews: 16n in Namibia
"Little Kulala review"
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." See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia
"A breathtaking lodge that we'll never forget."
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," See all these reviews: 7n in Namibia; 4n in Botswana
