Little Kulala is a luxurious desert retreat situated in the private 37,000 hectare Kulala Wilderness Reserve - the gateway to Namibia's Dune Sea with its towering dunes and clear starry skies. The camp takes its design inspiration from its surroundings, notably from the magnificent Dead Vlei in the middle of Sossusvlei. The overall mood and feel is cool, serene, organic and sheltering.
Little Kulala features an elegant main guest area which includes a library, wine cellar, craft boutique, lounge and dining areas. The interiors have been designed to provide an all-natural and unique experience in this most beautiful environment. The extensive use of neutral colours, gorgeous textures and natural light reproduce the soothing pastel tones of the desert. There is also a central shaded swimming pool. A water hole in front of the main lodge building provides the opportunity to see gemsbok (oryx), springbok, bat-eared fox, aardwolf, ostrich and jackals.
Activities at Little Kulala include morning guided drives to the spectacular towering dunes of Sossusvlei, through a private gate into the reserve. Guided drives and walks are also offered on the private Kulala Wilderness Reserve with incredible views, desert-adapted wildlife and plants, and the sunset/sundowner excusion is always very popular! Quad-biking can also be arranged as can a hot air balloon trip.
Accommodation consists of 11 climate-controlled, thatched 'kulalas' (the word means 'to sleep') which merge impeccably into the timeless desert landscape. Each kulala has exquisite fittings and fixtures, and an innovative bleached deck with a private plunge pool. The en-suite bathroom has both indoor and outdoor showers.
A staircase leading to the flat rooftop above the bathroom provides the ideal setting for star-gazing, and mattresses and duvets can be made up into a 'skybed' for an unforgettable night of sleeping out under the stars.
All meals; local drinks (excluding premium imported brands and champagne); Park fees; a laundry service; and twice daily shared scheduled camp activities are included.
Children aged 6 years and older are welcome. Rates available on request.
