My wife stayed and I in little Kulala for three nights for our honeymoon and it was simply spectacular and top notch. The views are breathtaking and that within a stylish high end interior that fits because it perfectly blends in with the environment. The food and wines are great and, contrary to other lodges they are very flexible in where and more important, when! you want to have lunch, dinner etc. We were suprised (to say the least) on the reviews on the slow internet, it's like going to the beach and complaining about the sand...you in the desert!!! (and hé, our point of view is the opposite, finally no e-mails!!!) If you can, you might want to try to make a transfer by small plane, the costs are reasonable and you will see views that make you feel you are another planet. Don't forget to get some extra info from the hosts on the stars at night during the sleepout on your roofterrace. Tip: if you are going to Africa for big game, I would also go to for example Etosha or Botswana, besides the desert elephants the game viewing is limited. Furthermore, in terms of pricing, there appears to be some room for specials as the standard rates are quite high. But having said that, this place will definitely enter your top 10!
