Ulusaba Safari Lodge Private Game Reserve
Overlooking Sabi Sand Game Reserve and Kruger National Park, on the banks of Mabrak River, Ulusaba offers accommodations in the Rock Lodge as well as the Safari Lodge. The Safari Lodge is built along the banks of the dry Mabrak riverbed. Guests will love the sense of adventure as they cross the “Raiders of the Lost Ark” style swing bridges between exquisite tree house rooms, created and inspired by local and natural materials, with elephants, bushbucks, lions and other local wildlife passing by. Safari Lodge can accommodate 20 guests in its 10 rooms.

Taste the spoils of a safari in South Africa in the peace and tranquility of the unspoilt African Bushveld. Owned by Sir Richard Branson, Ulusaba Private Game Reserve is the ultimate destination for spotting the ‘Big Five’! Ulusaba is located in the western sector of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve bordering Kruger National Park. At Ulusaba our emphasis is on exceptional personal service. Our attentive staff and superb facilities will ensure that being in the middle of the African Bush does not need to mean foregoing creature comforts. You'll have the unique sights, sounds and smells of Africa on your doorstep, while still enjoying the kind of style and luxury you'd expect from a five star boutique hotel. Because Ulusaba is privately owned, you'll be able to enjoy over 13,500 hectares (about 33,000 acres) of unspoilt, game-rich Bush in near solitude. Experienced Trackers and Game Rangers will accompany you on game drives in open Land Rovers, tracking the ‘Big Five’ and sharing with you their vast knowledge of the surrounding wildlife.

The Safari Lodge is built along the banks of the dry Mabrak riverbed. Guests will love the sense of adventure as they cross the “Raiders of the Lost Ark” style swing bridges between exquisite tree house rooms, created and inspired by local and natural materials, with elephants, bushbucks, lions and other local wildlife passing by. Safari Lodge can accommodate 20 guests in its 10 rooms. The separate property located to Ulusaba, The Rock Lodge, is on the summit of a koppie set against the backdrop of the Drakensberg Mountain range far in the distance. Each room has been designed with the colors of a different African tribe or region. Rock Lodge includes Ulusaba’s newest addition, Cliff Lodge, and can accommodate a total of 20-25 guests in its 10 rooms.

Safari Lodge fits snugly into the bush located beneath a canopy of ancient trees on the edge of a dry riverbed. You’ll love the sense of adventure as you access some of the rooms by swing bridges. Your room will provide fascinating views of the animals as they stroll past on their way to the nearby watering hole. The rooms at Safari Lodge include a Treehouse Suite overlooking the nearby Xikwenga Dam while other rooms have their own private plunge pools. Kids aged 12 and over are welcome to stay at Safari Lodge.

The treehouse viewing deck overlooking the Xikwenga Dam is a great place to get even further into the bush to see where the hippos and elephants come to bathe.

Stargazing: Far away from all of the light pollution you get in most cities and towns, a visit to Ulusaba is a great chance to gaze at the night sky. Our Bush Observatory may be out of action at the moment, but we still encourage you to look up at night - you won't be disappointed!

Location Summary

Fitness Center
Hit the gym and work up an appetite. It’s equipped with a running machine, bike, multifunctional weight station and free weights.

Children of all ages can stay at Rock Lodge - including Cliff Lodge - which is ideal for families while Safari Lodge welcomes children aged 12 and over.
Pool Outdoor
Relax or cool down in the Safari Lodge pool. If relaxing is more your thing, we’ll make you a cocktail so you can soak up the sunshine.
Spa Facility
The Aroma Boma spa treatment room is built on the banks of the dry Mabrak riverbed amongst the trees and away from the main lodge area, so the only likely disturbance is perhaps the odd elephant wandering past! Ulusaba uses a range of products from ‘Africology’. ‘Africology’ prides itself on its African roots, taking inspiration from home and using local active ingredients including Rooibos, Aloe, Marula and African Potato.
Tennis Courts On Site
If you fancy a hit of tennis, there are two tennis courts. We have balls and racquets you can borrow. The courts are floodlit so you can also play at night, but we will organise a security escort just to make sure the animals don’t gate crash your game!
Ecological Tourism
Extensive options. Daily game drives, safari walks, and Informative talks on flora, fauna and conservation that can be organised on request for both adults and children
Shopping
The Gift Shop is located at Safari Lodge, and is filled with a selection of arts, crafts, small gifts, books, and clothing ranging from caps, shirts and beanies to gloves. We also stock necessities such as camera batteries and memory cards so you’ll be able to relive every moment of those amazing animal sightings on game drives!
Winery Tours
Whether you’re staying at Rock Lodge or Safari Lodge, you should definitely make some time to taste a few reds and whites in the Safari Lodge wine room. We can also organise private dinners for up to six on the deck just outside the cellar which overlooks the nearby watering hole.
