      Little Kulala

      Entry Point to the Sand Sea

      Little Kulala is a luxurious desert retreat situated in the private 91,500-acre Kulala Wilderness Reserve - the gateway to Namibia's Sand Sea with its towering dunes and clear, starry skies. Accommodation at Little Kulala consists of 11 climate-controlled thatched "kulalas" (the word means 'to sleep') which merge impeccably into the timeless desert landscape, with exquisite fittings and fixtures, and innovative bleached decks - each with a private plunge pool. Each kulala has a rooftop 'skybed' for romantic stargazing, with both indoor and outdoor showers. Little Kulala features an elegant entertainment area which includes a library, wine cellar, craft boutique, lounge and dining areas. Dining under the clear Namibian skies is a highlight. The interiors have been designed to provide an all-natural and unique experience in this most beautiful environment. The extensive use of neutral colors, gorgeous textures and natural light reproduce the soothing pastel tones of the desert. Pure linens, cottons and mohair dyed with natural vegetable dyes all make for a very organic camp which takes its inspiration from its surroundings, notably from the magnificent Dead Vlei in the middle of Sossusvlei. Desert-adapted wildlife such as ostriches, springbok and gemsbok eke out an existence and are sparsely distributed around Little Kulala. Smaller creatures such as bat-eared foxes and aardwolves can be seen at night in the cool desert air. One bird, the aptly named dune lark, has its entire global distribution limited to the area, so dependent is it on the area's characteristic sands. Activities at Little Kulala start with morning guided drives to the spectacular towering dunes of Sossusvlei, through a private gate into the reserve. Sossusvlei is situated within the Namib Desert, the oldest desert in the world, which itself is part of the Namib Naukluft National Park that stretches 250 miles south of Walvis Bay and is sandwiched between the west coast and the escarpment that runs parallel more than 60 miles inland. Its huge dunes and flat valley floors make up the archetypical view of the Namib that is world famous. Guided drives and walks are also offered on the private Kulala Wilderness Reserve with incredible views, desert-adapted wildlife and plants. Another option, at an extra cost, is early morning hot-air ballooning, beginning at first light. The balloon safari offers a truly unique experience to soar silently above the magnificent sand dunes and desert, with a champagne breakfast being served at your landing site.

        Six Countries Summer Special

        Available

        01 Nov 14 - 03 Mar 15

        Ever increasing in popularity, the summer months in Southern Africa (November – March) offer a different safari experience as short showers green the dry grasslands and clean the bright blue skies. Photographers delight in the clear light, spectacular sunrises and sunsets, and rare bird sightings. Because the resident wildlife disperses to many abundant water sources, you may have to work a bit harder to see the animals, but you will have the added benefit of seeing many babies who arrive at this time of year. read more
