Little Kulala

Found in the sprawling 37,000-hectare private Kulala Wilderness Reserve, Little Kulala is a luxurious desert eco-retreat that acts as a gateway for guests to the sweeping red dunes of Sossusvlei, which are only 45 minutes away. Guests can expect charming hospitality and service from the friendly staff at the property, which is very much similar to its sister property Kulala Desert Lodge.

Accommodation is adapted to the desert environment and is designed to keep guests as cool as possible. Little Kulala offers only 11 rooms each of which is raised off the ground on wooden platforms to catch the cool breeze and maintain strong airflow at all times, with air conditioning furthering this. All rooms are en suite and provide charming, private verandas from which guests can take in the view along with inviting private plunge pools to relax in and cool off. Should guests wish to, they can sleep out under the vast and star studded sky on the room's flat rooftops.

The high thatched roof of the main area provides welcome shade as well as a comfortable lounge, dining room and bar. Guests can stand out on the veranda and watch the shadows slowly roll over the vast desert-scape or take to Little Kulala's main pool for a tranquil dip.

Little Kulala is approximately a 1.15 hr flight from Windhoek and 1 hr flight from Swakopmund. The airstrip is located approximately 30 min drive from the camp. For drive options it is a 350km drive south of Windhoek.

Review of Little Kulala

William MacNaull & Colette Sabourin MacNaull

Little Kulala was fabulous and the landscape unbelievable. With daytime temperatures reaching 46 Celsius we were glad to have AC. ( we were told Kulala Desert Lodge has no AC. ) The accommodation was first rate with the plunge pool and sky bed and the main lodge was exquisite. The staff were very attentive and were able to tailor your day to make the most of your time…

Review of Little Kulala

Marc Thomas

Great hotel . Great architecture and design. Excellent service. Sleeping on the roof looking at the night's star is real nice. Do not forget the duffle at 4 am ! The best wines list of all our trip. Enjoyed a lot the evening drinks at sunset in the desert. Great idea to have dinner service in the cellar of the hotel !
