De beroemde Sossusvlei bevindt zich in het Namib Naukluft Park. De openingstijden zijn vanaf zonsopgang tot een uur na zonsondergang. De Sossusvlei is de plek waar een smalle, over het algemeen droge rivierbedding in tijden van flinke regenval de zanderige vlakte omtovert in een klein meer. De meeste accommodaties in dit gebied bevinden zich in de omgeving van de plaatsen Solitaire en Sesriem, op 30-60 kilometer afstand van de Sossusvlei.
This was the first of the Wilderness Lodges that we stayed in and it certainly set the bar at a high level. The main area is stunning built over three levels with seating areas, a bar, dining area and a well stocked reference library. On our first evening we sat out on the deck with a glass of cool white wine watching the water hole - bliss! We stayed in a beautiful air conditioned chalet - raised up on a white washed wooden deck with a bamboo stick fence/gate for extra privacy. there was a double bed in the middle of the room which was raised on a small wooden platform. There was also a comfortable seating area - outside on the deck were sun loungers plus a table and chairs. There was also a bed upstairs on the roof should you wish to sleep under the stars which we didn't do as it was quite cold at night being winter. The bathroom was separate and comprised of a huge double shower, twin wash basins and separate loo. All the staff members were so friendly - it was a joy to stay there. There was nothing that was too much trouble and we loved the singing and dancing that took place following dinner. Food was lovely and there was a small choice of meals each evening. We were very blessed as on our final night there we dined down in the wine cellar - such a treat!
"Great hospitality in a unique location"
We were more than happy with our experience at Little Kuala where we spent the first two nights of our Namibian Safari. It's the smaller of two lodges operated by Wilderness Safaris in an area close to the Namib-Naukluft Reserve, where the desert meets the mountains with a distinctive and rugged beauty. This is not a part of the country where you should expect to encounter the big five: we did see several species of birds as well as mammals like Hartman's mountain zebra, oryx, springbok, Cape fox and black-made jackal. Accommodation at Little Kulala is in large villas on either side of the communal areas. Ours, Room 9, was one of the nearest but still felt entirely private. It had a small courtyard with a tiny plunge pool and outdoor seating, though we were too busy elsewhere to make use of either. The main room was substantial and airy, with huge bed, comfortable seating and Wi Fi. Behind it there was an (inclusive) mini bar, room safe and ample space for clothes. The bathroom was very large (his and hers basins and showers) with a second shower outdoors. As in all Wilderness lodges there were good toiletries. There was a second bed on the roof of the villa if you wanted to sleep outside. We did this on one occasion although with a full moon it was too bright to identify most of the stars. Perhaps to compensate for the shortage of wildlife, Little Kulala is more like a hotel than other lodges we have visited. Dining is at individual tables rather than communal and guides eat apart from guests. There is, we were told, a wine cellar should you wish to view it but we were more than content with the wines offered within the inclusive package. A small pool with loungers seemed a little incongruous in such a location but other guests were making use of it. Food and drink were, as anticipated, generally very good and wine was proffered at every opportunity. Sundowners were carefully integrated into each day's activities. Our guide and driver Action was, as has been our invariable experience with Wilderness holidays, excellent. On our first day we drove to the Session Canyon, on our second to the Deadvlej where as almost the first to arrive we had a good hour photographing the stunning landscape. In our two-day stay we felt we had seen the best of what is in the area and were happy to move on but balloon trips and quad biking were available for anyone staying longer.
"A FANTASTIC camp & an UNFORGETTABLE experience!"
The camp itself is absolutely beautiful such that the rooms are incredibly spacious, well appointed, and with every conceivable convenience even though the camp is in a very remote spot in Namibia. Yes, Wi-Fi was available! All meals were included with our plan and were incredibly delicious and perfectly presented. Particularly nice was the deck which overlooks the Namibian desert and the nearby watering hole. At night, the watering hole is lit and attracts jackals, owls, and other creatures. In the daytime, we saw an oryx and of course multiple birds visiting the watering hole. Although the accommodations and meals were nothing short of perfect, the most incredible aspect of our visit was our fantastic and unforgettable guide, Mamsy. She was knowledgeable about the area and wildlife and was incredibly personable. She felt more like a new friend than a Safari guide, and in fact by the time, we left, she had become our friend! Because of her interest in photography, she was keenly aware of the importance of great lighting. I returned with some outstanding photographs of the area which in large part were due to Mamsy's knowledge of lighting and also her willingness to go the extra mile. Suffice it to say that this portion of our journey was truly unforgettable!
"A very luxurious place to stay"
A very luxurious place to stay. The staff are top class and the lodge is very comfortable. Food is top class. Our room had everything we needed and the surprise was the star-gazing bed on the roof where we spent one night. The night sky and views of the Milky Way were outstanding. Our guide, Action, looked after us very well on our drives into the desert as we visited the dunes, Dead Vlei and Sesriem. The stops for sundowners were very enjoyable including Action's map and description of the different areas and people of Namibia. We even did a walk hunting for scorpions.
"Enchanting desert setting!"
We spent two days and nights at this wonderful desert-like resort in a starkly beautiful part of Namibia. Our accommodations were spacious and well-appointed, and included a separate roof top bed where we spent part of both nights. The star gazing there was phenomenal. Our female guide/driver , Mamsy, was outstanding and the entire staff was very helpful throughout our stay. The meals were delicious and the wine selections were excellent. We especially enjoyed hiking in the area's amazing sand dunes. The wildlife was interesting though not plentiful, but you travel to this part of Namibia for the scenery and it did not disappoint.
