The Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve is a private game reserve situated on the Western border of the Kruger National Park. It spans 65,000 hectares and is renowned for providing some of the best game viewing in Africa. The reserve shares a 50km long unfenced border with the Kruger, ensuring that animals can roam freely between the two reserves. The Sabi Sand Game Reserve comprises a number of private game reserves, each providing an exclusive and luxurious experience in the heart of the bush. Unlike the Kruger National Park, the Sabi Sand is not open to the general public. Staying in one of the lodges here means you are sharing this pristine wilderness with only a few other guests.

The reserve has a dense concentration of wildlife, including over 330 plant species, 45 fish species, 30 amphibian species, 110 reptile species, 500 bird species and 145 mammal species! It is home to the Big 5 and is probably the best place in the world to get up close and personal with the elusive leopard.

Ulusaba Rock Lodge is ideal for couples and families looking for a private luxury safari experience.

As far as the animals go, the Game Drives were incredible!! Trevor, our ranger, and Eric, our tracker, found us incredible sightings each of the six times we went out. From herds of elephants, to four lions roaring together, to a leopard protecting its young from a hyena; we were never disappointed. The staff made us feel like family and were always happy to help in whatever way possible. I highly recommend it.
if you want to go on a Photo Safari in South Africa with 5 star service and accommodations go to Ulusaba. It is Richard Branson's private game reserve. It is not cheap but it is also not as expensive as you would imagine, especially for the experience. They made all the arrangements from Johannesburg to the private landing strip at Ulusaba and back. It was effortless. It was all inclusive and met every expectation i had. We saw all of the big animals up close and personal and then some. the people were great. The accommodations were unreal and the food was fabulous. Ask for Johnny to be your guide. He is an endless repository of African animal knowledge.
Wholeheartedly agree with all the other reviews, an amazing experience, everything you would expect from Richard Branson and more. We stayed for 4 nights to celebrate an anniversary and the staff are all amazing and cannot do enough for you. The game drives were brilliant, we had Sean and James as our ranger and tracker and they were excellent. Also Robin and Knox who looked after us at the lodge. In the evenings everyone meets up for drinks before dinner which was great fun.
I knew this would be a wonderful trip but I could never have expected how great it would be. The attention to every detail made it the most enjoyable vacation we have ever had. From the moment we arrived until we sadly got on the plane to leave, we were in heaven. We were told upon arrival that it was the goal of the staff for us to feel at home during our stay. They treated us like family and we felt so welcomed. Our ranger Ryan was so knowledgeable and did such a wonderful job of sharing his love of nature and desire for conservation. I could go on and on but there is no true way to describe this to anyone. One must experience this to truly understand what a special place Ulusaba is.
I visited Ulusaba for a 3rd time in February, and yet again it was fantastic. I just love this place, it's peaceful and relaxed and in my opinion it is very difficult to find any fault in it at all!The game this time was better than ever. A close encounter with a rather exuberant elephant, wild dog which I haven't seen for many years, fantastic leopard sightings, and yes, the Selati males made an appearance this time! Brilliant, brilliant game and great for any photography lovers.Calvin was a first class ranger and great tips and help on the picture taking front too.Super accommodation too, really lovely, and great food and wine.And I've already booked for a fourth trip next year!
