Ulusaba is located in the western sector of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve which borders with the Kruger National Park, and is the ideal location for one to watch the so-called “Big Five” (African elephant, rhinoceros, buffalo, lion, leopard) up close and personal.
Ulusaba offers the experience of being within earshot of some of the most awe inspiring and unreachable creatures of nature, while enjoying an immensely stylish and luxurious accommodation. Upon arrival at Ulusaba, you`ll be given the option of staying at the Rock Lodge (which also includes the newly-built Cliff Lodge), located high up on the slopes of a hill, or at the Safari Lodge, built along the bank of the dry Mabrak river.
Many visitors choose to split their stay between the two lodges so as to get the best of both options. Nevertheless, no matter where you chose to stay, the rooms and suites are truly magnificent, with incredibly tasteful African-style décor, and breathtaking views of the wild.
At Ulusaba, you will go on private game viewing drives in open Land Rovers, guided by experienced Rangers and Trackers, savour sumptuous gourmet meals around a camp-fire, under the stars and in candle-light, and relax by the pool or the Aroma Boma Beauty Treatment Centres, enjoying one of many face and body treatments.
Alternatively, you can play tennis or any other of the available sports, visit the fully-equipped gym, or explore the surrounding area from above, by helicopter. And of course, if you can afford it, you can always book the entire lodge and organise an amazing wedding in the wilderness. This is something that all your guests will remember for ever. If, on the other hand you are already married with children, you`ll be pleased to know that they`ll be welcome at the Lodge, and they have their own kids club to keep them entertained.
Getting there: Via Johannesburg. From there, Ulusaba is a 1 hour and 20 minute flight by twin turbo-prop air plane.
