The detail

Decked out with state-of-the-art equipment and facilities, Ulusaba Safari Lodge is all about soft lighting, the sounds of the bush and nearby river, and luxurious accommodation. 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.

Three adjoining Safari Rooms are located close to the Main Lodge and offer large viewing decks and en-suite bathrooms with great views.

Three spacious Elephant Rooms boast en-suite bathrooms and large viewing decks with stunning views over the bush. Elephants regularly use a migratory route that passes by these rooms which allow for excellent up-close-and-personal game viewing! The location of the three Elephant Rooms is ideal for friends traveling together or families with teens wishing to be close to their parents.

Built tree house style and very private are four River Rooms, with two rooms offering private plunge pools. All are very spacious with snuggling seating areas and striking views of the river bed or bush. The River Rooms are ideal for those celebrating or enjoying a romantic escape, as these rooms are secluded and tucked between Jackalberry trees. Three of the River Rooms are accessible by a swing bridge and are a short walk from the main Lodge.

The Treehouse suite is spacious and very unique, featuring a private deck with views over Xikwenga Dam where hippos and elephants come to bathe. There is also a large viewing deck adjacent to the room perfect for dining. The Treehouse Suite offers ultimate seclusion and ideal for honeymooners. Its location makes it the perfect choice for avid photographers and birders. Accessible by swing bridges and raised walkways, the Treehouse Suite is an approximate 10-minute walk from the main lodge.

The lodge facilities include a reception area, lounge area, dining area, swimming pool, bush observatory, two tennis courts, gym with a running machine, bike, multifunctional weight station and free weights, spa treatment room, outdoor boma, wine cellar, and a gift shop.

Internationally renowned chefs have developed an African inspired menu that is rich in flavors and spices. Fresh locally sourced ingredients are used in the dishes. Whether dining under the African sky, in the Boma, on a deck or in the dining room, the menus and meals promise to be exceptional. All the breads and pastries are home baked daily. The lodge also caters for private meals and special occasions.

Enjoy early morning and late afternoon open vehicle game drives in this pristine wilderness and unforgettable bush walks that are sure to enlighten your senses. Other optional activities include the scenic Panorama Route, helicopter flights over the bush, and an authentic Shangaan experience with a visit to the local villages surrounding the Sabi Sand Game Reserve.

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 Safari Lodge is ideal for solo explorers, couples and families looking for a luxury safari experience.

Thanks Pascal you are amazing!
From the moment we arrived in South Africa, our safari adventure was nothing short of extraordinary. Nestled in the heart of the African wilderness, we found ourselves surrounded by the breathtaking landscapes of Kruger National Park, a haven for wildlife enthusiasts. Our accommodation was luxurious yet seamlessly integrated into the natural environment, offering us stunning views of the savannah from the comfort of our private deck. Each day began with an exhilarating sunrise game drive, where our expert guide shared his deep knowledge and passion for the local wildlife. Witnessing the "Big Five" was an awe-inspiring experience that left us in complete awe of nature's magnificence. The guides were incredibly knowledgeable and made sure we felt safe while immersing ourselves in the wilderness. Evenings were equally enchanting, with sundowner drinks enjoyed against the backdrop of a fiery African sunset, followed by sumptuous dinners under the starlit sky. The cuisine was a delightful fusion of local flavors and gourmet dishes, perfectly complementing the day's adventures. The sense of community at the lodge was heartwarming. The staff were attentive, ensuring every need was met with a smile, and fellow travelers quickly became friends as we shared stories around the campfire. Our South African safari was more than just a holiday; it was a transformative journey that connected us with nature and left us with lasting memories. For anyone seeking an adventure that combines luxury, education, and unparalleled wildlife encounters, a safari in South Africa is an absolute must. We left with hearts full of gratitude and a profound appreciation for the natural world, eagerly planning our return to this magnificent land.
