Place: A welcome oasis situated on the dry Auab riverbed in the Kulala Wilderness Reserve, Little Kulala celebrates the splendour and solitude of the Namib Desert. Excursions to Sossusvlei (via a gate exclusive to Wilderness Safaris vehicles), nature drives, guided nature trails, eco-sensitive guided quad bike excursions and guided electric fat-wheeled bike excursions, explore this fascinating landscape. A hot air balloon safari (at extra cost) offers an awe-inspiring experience soaring above the desert.
Accommodation: Inspired by Dead Vlei, the design of the eleven luxury desert suites (ten twins and one family unit), expanded to offer improved airflow (brick and glass accommodation under thatch), each featuring a spacious deck, sala and private plunge pool, merges seamlessly into the timeless desert setting. A private rooftop area for romantic stargazing and sleep-outs on the bottom deck of each accommodation complete the experience. Interiors illustrate an extension of the desert's natural beauty, replicated in colour choice, palette, decor and art.
Purpose: Once farmland used for subsistence goat farming, the Kulala Wilderness Reserve had very little indigenous wildlife. In 1996 Wilderness Safaris stepped in to rehabilitate the area and today the land and its wildlife have returned to their former glory.
NOTE: Hot air ballooning closed on 25 December and 01 January, and from mid-January to mid-February.
