Children over six years old are welcome. All parties with children of twelve years old and younger are required to book and pay for private activities (at an extra cost) unless they have booked the camp on an exclusive-use basis or have filled a vehicle (6 guests) and would, thus, have had sole-use of the vehicle. The following age restrictions apply (where these activities are applicable to each lodge/camp): For boat trips, children must be six years of age or over, twelve years old for safari walks and at least sixteen years old for quad-biking.
As well as game-drives, guests can enjoy an early-morning hot-air balloon flight over the apricot-coloured dunes, followed by a Champagne breakfast on landing (at an additional charge).
Little Kulala inhabits a remote and arid desert landscape and, as a result, is nothing like your typical safari experience. Barren, yet staggeringly beautiful, the landscape is littered with small but fascinating creatures, from insects, reptiles and rodents, to larger desert-adapted animals such as Ostriches, Dune Larks and Springboks. Guided morning drives transport guests into the colossal dunes of Sossusvlei within the Namib Desert - known to be the oldest desert in the world. Alternatively, request nature-drives, walking trails or an early-morning hot-air balloon safari (at an additional cost), which traverses the remote sand plains from above.
