Little Kulala, a luxurious desert retreat, is situated in the private 37,000 hectare Kulala Wilderness Reserve, the gateway to Namibia's Sand Sea with its towering red dunes and clear starry skies. Once farmland used for subsistence goat farming, the region had very little indigenous wildlife that Wilderness Safaris rehabilitate in 1996. Today the land and its wildlife have returned to their former glory. A welcome oasis along the dry Auab riverbed offering excursions to Sossusvlei, nature drives, walks, balloon safari and eco-sensitive quad biking, to explore this fascinating landscape. The design inspired by Dead Vlei, of the 11 climate-controlled, thatched “kulalas” (something like traditional bungalows, the word means “to sleep”) merge impeccably into the timeless desert landscape. With exquisite fittings and fixtures, each unit has innovative bleached deck with a private plunge pool and both indoor and outdoor showers. Each kulala has a rooftop “skybed” for romantic star gazing.
Nature drives with Wilderness Safaris vehicles through world-famous Sossusvlei, an enormous clay pan, flanked by towering sand dunes. Close to Sossusvlei pan is Dead Vlei, another pan where water once flowed and now remains are the skeletons of camelthorn trees. Sesriem Canyon is a fascinating geographical formation as the result of millions of years of water carving its way, offering breathtaking views and amazing walks.
Eco-sensitive guided quad-bike ride are conducted with care through the private Kulala Wilderness Reserve offering incredible views of the desert. Along specifically pathways, to preserve dunes and the delicate habitat of this fragile environment
