Wilderness Safaris closes Namibia lodge for refurbishment

Wilderness Safaris has closed one its adventure lodges in Namibia for a refurbishment.

Little Kulala in Sossusvlei is scheduled to re-open in June 2020.

The hotel group said the updated camp will retain its original look and feel with a new focus on activities both in and out of camp. 

Changes include new flooring, a remodelling of the main area deck and the addition of a photo hub in the upstairs library space, where guests can learn more about the Namib Sand Sea and surrounding areas. 

Its 11 ‘kulalas’ (lodges) will also have better airflow, a spacious deck and elevated walkways for increased ease of access, as well as a rooftop stargazing area. 

“As a firm favourite of both our guests and travel partners alike, Little Kulala is situated in one of the best locations in the exclusive Kulala Wilderness Reserve – the only private reserve with direct access to Sossusvlei’s magnificent red dunes,” said Alexandra Margull, Wilderness Safaris Namibia MD. 

“It is this location and luxury of space, combined with the camp’s notable architecture and elegant accommodation, that our guests have come to love. This is why our revamp will focus on enhancing these features in a way that reinterprets the desert experience, and tells the remarkable story of a desert habitat restored.”
