Ulusaba Private game reserve
Sabi Sand Reserve, South Africa
Get up close and personal with the elephants at Elephant Whispers, see the Cascades and Canyons by helicopter or visit Blyde River Canyon. For a more authentic Shangaan experience, visit the local villages surrounding the Sabi Sand Game Reserve. When not occupied on a walking safari or twice daily game drive, take a dip in the swimming pools or indulge in a spa treatment. For the more active, there are tennis courts and gyms available. Try a few South African wines from the wine cellar and after dinner enjoy a spot of stargazing at the bush observatory.
Ulusaba Private Game Reserve is located in the western sector of the Sabi Sand Reserve. We’re close to Kruger National Park which is in the Mpumalanga province of South Africa.
Ulusaba has 21 rooms and suites spread over two lodges. Rock Lodge is ‘Heaven in Heaven’, perched high on the summit of a koppie with views over the South African bush below. Nearly 500 metres away is Safari Lodge, known as ‘Heaven on Earth’. Built along the banks of a dry riverbed, Safari Lodge guests cross swing bridges between the exquisite tree house style rooms. For the ultimate experience, guests can share their time between both lodges.
Nothing gets past our experienced Rangers and Trackers on the twice daily game drives (well, mostly!). Traversing over 13,500 hectares in open Land Rovers, they will share their vast knowledge of the surrounding wildlife as they track the Big 5 – lions, buffalos, leopards, elephants and rhinoceroses. Our Rangers and Trackers will also guide guests on daily safari walks to see flora, fauna and smaller creatures often missed when on the game vehicles.
At Ulusaba, kids up to 11 years old can stay at Rock Lodge and are invited to join the Cub’s Club. We offer a range of activities tailored to each child or group together with Cub’s cuisine. Babysitting is complimentary and run by experienced staff members. All Cubs will be given a Cub’s Club Backpack full of little goodies to entertain and educate them about the African Bush.
The Aroma Boma Spas at Ulusaba’s Rock and Safari Lodges are the perfect antidote to all the excitement of game drives. A whole range of treatments is available, from facials and massages through to those essential grooming rituals. Away from the spa you can opt to enjoy a massage in the comfort of your own room or even on one of the outdoor decks.
