About Little Kulala
Little Kulala is a luxurious desert retreat situated in the private 27 000-hectare (67 000-acre) Kulala Wilderness Reserve – the gateway to Namibia's Sand Sea with its towering dunes and clear starry skies. Desert-adapted wildlife in the area is fascinating and is another dimension of this truly spectacular place.
Accommodation consists of 11 climate-controlled, thatched "kulalas" (the word means 'to sleep') which merge impeccably into the desert landscape, each with private plunge pool, both indoor and outdoor showers and a rooftop star bed for romantic star gazing. An elegant entertainment area includes a library, wine cellar, craft boutique, lounge and dining areas. Little Kulala's interiors make use of neutral colours, gorgeous textures and natural light and takes its inspiration from its surroundings, notably from the magnificent Dead Vlei. There are luxury canvas and glass rooms with a thatched roof and latte screens provide a cool respite from the sun; plunge pool and sandy walkways on the ground.
Approximately 350 kilometres south of Windhoek and the entrance is situated 17 kilometres south of Sesriem.
How to get there
Sesriem is approximately a 5 hour drive either from Windhoek or from Swakopmund, and Sossusvlei is roughly one hour from Sesriem, and inside the gated park area (open only from sunrise-sunset). It is not feasible to do a daytrip from Windhoek or Swakopmund; an overnight stay in the Sesriem area is necessary in order to visit and enjoy Sossusvlei. Transfers can be organized from Sesriem to the lodge.
When to go
Namibia only receives a fraction of the rain experienced by countries further east. Between December and March, some days will be humid and rain may follow, often in localized, afternoon thunderstorms. Wildlife viewing in all parks, but especially in Etosha, is best in the Dry season from June to October.
Travelling with children
Children of 6 years and older are accommodated.
For families travelling with children between 6 and 12 years, private activities need to be booked and paid for.
Children between 6 and 16 years must share with an adult/s in the same room.
While there is no age limitation for the hot air ballooning, there is a restriction on height. Children need to be a minimum of 1.3 metres to comfortably see over the basket.
