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.
"Smiling just thinking about it!"
We loved our stay at Little Kulala. Itâ€™s a beautiful place in a stunning setting, with a staff to match! The enthusiasm of everyone we encountered made me happy. Our room was comfortable, amenity-filled and blended seamlessly into the surroundings. The food was good and upon reflection, I still donâ€™t know how they get that amount of variety (especially of produce) into the desert. Having traveled around Namibia for 3 weeks following our stay and cooking our own meals, I will tell you Namibian grocery stores do not sell this produce. Our guide, Matthew was knowledgeable but never overbearing. He did a good job of reading the vibe of our small group and how much we wanted to chat. We spent a lot of time talking to both Emsie and Bertha, two awesome ladies on staff. If I could afford it, I would go back in a heartbeat. Definitely a highlight of our trip.
"The Other Side of the Moon"
Recently, my wife and I took her sister to a most remote travel destination, unknown to most Americans. When we arrived, I was sure we were on the other side of the moon. We were in Namibia on the West Coast of southern Africa. The landscape is almost indescribable with vast expanses of desert and dunes. Namibia is bordered on the north by Angola, on the east by Botswana, and on the south by South Africa. We stayed in 3 safari camps, owned and managed by Wilderness Safari, over 2 weeks and encountered only 1 American couple. Most travelers were European â€“ German, Dutch, French, and English. Our 1st camp was in the south of Namibia amidst the red sand dunes of Sossusvlei. These are the highest sand dunes in the world, some well over 1,000 feet high. We stayed in a camp named Little Kulala, within sight of the dunes. The lodges were 5 star accommodations and the staff was excellent. This is an area in the midst of the Namib Desert, one of the oldest deserts in the world at over 2 million years old. It hasnâ€™t rained in this area in almost 7 years. We encountered only ostrich, springbok, and gemsbok (oryx) in the surrounding landscape, the only animals that have successfully adapted to the dry conditions. The 3 memorable experiences at Little Kulala were a hot air balloon ride over the dunes (and landing accidently in the dunes) followed by a great champagne breakfast, a climb up one of the dunes to about 500 feet, and sitting through a total white-out sandstorm. My hat is off to Wilderness Safari for the fantastic job they did for us and do for the many camps they have across Africa. I would heartily recommend them to anyone considering a safari trip in Africa. This was certainly a trip to remember with lots of photos to remind us of the indescribable landscape and beautiful lodges we were privileged to visit. Our thanks also go to Cox and Kings, the tour company that put this remarkable trip together for us. We have travelled with Cox and Kings in the past and have never been disappointedâ€¦
Little Kulala offers a luxurious Sossusvlei experience. The staff took good care of us and I enjoyed sleeping out on the roof. The private villas offer some of Namibias best suites ... The dead vlei activity is a must (although it's a pity Breakfast is served at 05h30 & not enjoyed on / during the outing). Very romantic suites with private plunge pools + the lodge shows off @ night
"Space is the biggest advantage!"
Little Kulala for me is charming with its spaciousness and simplicity. + they have space for everyone, they have some nooks and corners for to have privacy if someone needs it and this is luxury! The lodge really goes very well into a natural environment. Staff maybe not always super professional (with some exceptions) but so sincere and hearty that you feel their care in the beautiful ways. The bed on an open terrace in your room is an interesting idea, but it's good that there is a bed in a room too! Rooms are beautiful, with big windows which allows you to feel being in a nature. Lots of natural materials like wood, african beads etc., loved the decor. - There are some details which maybe are too simple for a luxurious lodge but then the cosiness of the place compensates it. We had a possibility to compare 2 lodges on our trip to Namibia and both were really nice places with their own pluses and minuses. It depends on taste and preferences just.
"Nice setting, gd guide..."
It was a lovely accommodation with nice setting, oryx walking past your accommodation, sunset, n bed under the stars...we had a great guide too who catered to our needs, knowleageable. Soussusvlei was amazing, picture perfect and the 4WD we rode was so fun n highly recommended. One big downside was the mosquitoes that haunted us both in the day and particularly at night. We spoke with other guests who stayed near us and they too had similar issues. I hope the mgmt could look into this as the dessert typically doesn't have many mozzies.
