Charleston, SC
Reviewed 18 September 2015

Perhaps our arrival at a time when there was no permanent manager and a new food and beverage person contributed to our disappointment. While the room was large, lovely, and had wifi, the food and service were superior at our two previous Wilderness camps that were classic, not premier camps. We were not informed of two wine tastings, we were...

This is a gorgeous camp in a wonderful location. The room, staff, food views are all stunning. We stayed 2 nights; which is, in truth, enough. There's little to do in the locale after visiting Sossusvlei - but I'd have loved another nighter there just to relax and enjoy the views etc - we spent a day too long in...

LIttle Kulala is a gorgeous little spot in Sossusvlei in the South of Namibia where the red sand dunes roll and roll. The lobby and the rooms are stunning in décor, the beds great, wonderful shower both indoor and out, all amenities including hair dryer (rare in the Namibia camps). The people were warm and welcoming and the service excellent....

I was really looking forward to staying here. The pictures of buildings and accommodations looked beautiful. And of course, being near the spectacular dunes. And some parts of it were great. The food we were served was excellent, and the staff was uniformly friendly. They performed some beautiful music and dance together as part of the 'bush' dinner that got...

This luxurious desert retreat lies in the private 37,000 hectare Kulala Wilderness Reserve. A raw and utterly beautiful landscape that clearly inspired the design of the lounge, dining and entertainment areas. Earthy, natural textures, artefacts, raw wood and a floor that mimics the white clay pans of Sossusvlei. 11 climate-controlled “kulalas” are aligned to take in the dramatic views of...
