Climate and Landscape
The scenery on the Kulala Wilderness Reserve has never been more breathtaking. This is the time of the year when the notorious “August wind” blows everyone in all directions, but this picks up the red dust and creates sunsets that are nothing short of spectacular.
Hordes of general game have been flocking to the waterhole at midday to quench their thirst. These watering holes on the reserve are the only reliable water source they have in the area.
Ballooning safaris at dawn are very popular as the weather is currently very favourable.
Guests truly appreciate the staff’s welcome when they return from an activity – this includes singing, dancing, drumming, comfy chairs and plenty of adult beverages on offer.
“Beach dinners” are always a popular al fresco meal option at Little Kulala with added entertainment in the form of the service staff translating the menu for the guests into their home languages.
The region is still experiencing cold nights and fewer guests opted for the Star Bed sleep-out, though they always enjoy viewing the constellations after dinner from the restaurant deck.
“There is no way I can adequately express my appreciation and gratitude for each one of you. Your dancing and singing left me with a feeling of gratitude to finally remark my second time was moved to tears with the spirit and joy that I experienced during your performance; for me was so much more than entertainment felt your feeling of joy and remembrance of your Fallen Heroes. Thank you so much for your moving talks. Thank you for the deep pride and sharing being Namibians. Thank you for sharing your culture and dress code. Thank you for making this visit so much more than about oryx, springbok and sand dunes; am so thankful for the experience. Thank you for your kindness. The other thing my first impression was that we had a female guide. She was the best.” – Kulala Desert Lodge
“The balloon trip and the welcoming and friendly attitudes of all the staff who seem committed to ensuring that all their guests have a great time…” – Little Kul
