Luxury hotel description - DLW Luxury Hotels Worldwide

Ulusaba is Sir Richard Branson’s Private Safari Game Reserve located in the Sabi Sand Reserve in South Africa. Ulusaba is known for the quality of its safari experience, with some of the most experienced Rangers and Trackers in the country. Our team is encouraged to let their personalities shine through, so you can relax as soon as you step off the plane at our private airstrip. All guests at Ulusaba can expect luxurious accommodation, outstanding food, twice daily game drives, safari walks, unforgettable views and plenty of smiles while you’re here with us in the African bush.
Ulusaba Private Game Reserve is located in the western sector of the Sabi Sand Reserve, near Kruger National Park in the Mpumalanga province of South Africa.

The Lodges at Ulusaba
Ulusaba has 21 rooms and suites spread over two lodges: Rock Lodge and Safari Lodge.
Rock Lodge is perched on the top of a koppie with panoramic views over the bush below. There are 8 rooms at Rock Lodge, including our Master Suite, Makwela Suites, Rock Cliff rooms and the two bedroom Rock Suite, some of which have private plunge pools. Just a short walk from the main house is Cliff Lodge, a private two bedroom suite.
Nearly 500 metres away is Safari Lodge which has 11 rooms, including our Elephant Rooms, River Rooms and the private Treehouse Suite. 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.
Ulusaba can be hired exclusively! Whether for a milestone birthday, anniversary, company retreat or just a time to get away with friends and family, Ulusaba is the perfect setting. You can hire either one or both lodges and you’ll have access to all the privacy, and flexibility that you desire, as well as your own game vehicles, Rangers and Trackers. Your stay will be uniquely tailored; perhaps cocktails at sunset followed by tribal dances around a bush campfire or a safari themed child’s birthday party… Whatever your preference, the Ulusaba team will ensure an unforgettable African safari experience.

Rock Lodge Rock Lodge has the best view in the Sabi Sand – and we promise we’re not biased!

Booking a stay at Ulusaba
Your stay at Ulusaba includes accommodation at one of our lodges, twice daily game drives plus all meals and drinks including a top quality wine list and sparkling wines. Your mini bar will be restocked daily with drinks and snacks just in case you’re peckish! Our rates also include road transfers from our private airstrip to the lodges and all local taxes. International flights and domestic flights to Ulusaba’s airstrip are not included.
Safari Lodge can accommodate 22 guests sharing 11 rooms, and Rock Lodge can accommodate between 20 and 25 guests sharing 10 rooms and suites. Cliff Lodge can accommodate up to 5 adults and 4 children and can be hired independently for smaller groups and families.
We can accommodate extra adults and children in some of our rooms on fold-out or rollaway beds. In some cases there will be an additional charge per person, per night. There are restrictions on the number of guests and vehicles allowed in the Sabi Sand Reserve, so there may be times when we’re unable to accommodate extra guests in rooms.

Cliff Lodge 1 and 2 can be booked individually 4 months prior to arrival. Cliff Lodge 1 can sleep up to three adults and two children, Cliff Lodge 2 can sleep up to two adults and two children. When hired exclusively enjoy your own dedicated game vehicle and a chef to prepare all your meals. While you have your own space and leisure facilities, of course you are welcome to enjoy those at Rock Lodge too! A Guest Conservation Contribution of R100 per person, per night will be added to the rates for your stay at Ulusaba (this also applies to all lodges in the reserve). This charge goes directly to the Sabi Sand Conservation Trust and will assist in the funding of our anti-poaching and conservation efforts to secure the long term survival of endangered and compromised animal species.

HOW WILL I GET THERE? South Africa is served by direct flights from the UK and other major European hubs, with flight times to Johannesburg between 10½ and 11½ hours depending on your point of origin. From the US there are direct flights from the east coast, with flight times of roughly 18 hours. Ulusaba is approximately a 1 hour and 20 minute flight from the international airport in Johannesburg (OR Tambo International) or 30 minutes from Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport (KMIA)*. We have our own private airstrip. Get a window seat - the view’s terrific! You can also come by road too from KMIA, which will take about 2 hours. Try and arrive by 1pm - just in time for lunch! Times are based on direct flights to Ulusaba Private Game Reserve. Some flights may service all Lodges in the Sabi Sand so flight times for arrival may vary.

W H A T ’ S THE WEATHER LIKE? The landscape changes with every season, so each visit will give you a different perspective on the African Bush. In spring and summer (October to April) the temperature averages 34°C/93°F. The days are glorious, the vegetation lush and the nights pleasantly warm. During autumn and winter (May to September) the days are moderately warm and sunny with an average temperature of 26°C/79°F, while the nights are cool and crisp.

A typical day
We thought we would give you a little taster as to what you can expect on a typical day at Ulusaba! You can do as little or as much as you like, it’s completely up to you! 5AM Rise and shine! The early morning game drive sets off at 5.30AM, but before you depart we have early morning teas, coffees and refreshments served on the main terrace. 5.30AM Off we go! We will depart on the morning game drive in an open 4 x 4 safari vehicle, stopping for refreshments in the heart of the South African bush. 9AM Breakfast time! Retreat back to the lodge for breakfast with your Ranger. 10AM It wouldn’t be a holiday if you didn’t have a bit of R&R! We recommend any of our spa treatments in the Aroma Boma spa (available at an additional charge). For those seeking more adventure you can get up close and personal with the animals during our walking safari (don’t worry an armed Ranger and Tracker will be with you at all times!) 1.30PM It’s lunch time! Lunch is served often on one of the sundecks. 4PM Before heading off on the evening game drive we will tempt you with our afternoon tea served on the patio.
4.30PM Game on! It’s time to depart for the evening game drive. Search for those elusive nocturnal animals after sundowner drinks served in the bush. Next it’s onto our Bush observatory where our game ranger will give you the chance for some stargazing in the South African bush. 8PM Dinner is served! We serve dinner at the Lodge or in the heart of the bush, under the African skies around a blazing log fire. Enjoy the tribal dancers and singers for a truly authentic African experience.

At Ulusaba, kids under the age of 12 can stay at Rock Lodge and are invited to join the Cub’s Club.
W H A T C A N C U B S E X P E C T WHEN THEY ARRIVE? A cool backpack filled with educational safari goodies and a cap! Cubs have their very own amenities in the room, just like their folks do, and we will provide a fantastic range of kids’ products.

SPA TREATMENTS The Aroma Boma at Ulusaba is the perfect antidote to all the excitement of being out on the game drives. Book in for a relaxing treatment, from facial rituals to massage to essential grooming. The Aroma Boma at Rock Lodge is located 800 feet above the African Savannah with truly stunning views over the Bush and offers complete privacy.

Lodge, The Aroma Boma 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.

WEDDINGS We love weddings at Ulusaba, and what could be more spectacular or evocative than a ceremony in the African Bush! Say ‘I do’ under the romantic canopy of an Amarula tree, surrounded by flaming bamboo torches, and announced by the beat of African drums. Getting married on Safari at Ulusaba is the kind of wedding your guests will be talking about for several years to come. We’ve put together wedding options, from the simple to the lavish, all designed with you in mind, just contact our reservations team for more information.

Weddings the Ulusaba Way
We know you have lots of choices on where to hold your wedding, but the key is stand out from the crowd. Ultimately you want your guests to be talking about your wedding for years to come, and that’s where we come in.
Our advice would be to keep some surprises up your sleeve for that extra ‘wow’ factor (All activities below are available for an additional charge – please contact us for more information).
• Local Marimba Band: these groups consist of about eight members who play homemade xylophones - trust us - they’re phenomenal and excellent both for background dinner music but also great for parties. Previous guests have danced the night away to these sounds.
• Performances from the Shangaan Dancers: the Shangaan are the area’s predominant tribe. They will entertain you with beautiful African inspired-tribal singing and dancing to kick off the celebrations and to get everyone up on the dance floor. This works exceptionally well for bush dinners, and guests are encouraged to get up and get involved.
• Gumboot Dancers: a tradition born from the workforce in the South African mines: 12 traditional Shangaan dancers in mining overalls, hard hats and gum boots perform a traditional mine dance which consists of a hand-clapping ritual along with slapping of the boots to create a fantastic sound and beat. These guys have some seriously impeccable timing!
• Ulusaba Choir: the Shangaan are well known for their singing and dancing and talent abounds throughout their culture. The choir is made up of around 15 Ulusaba staff members who sing Shangaan songs and perform traditional dancing. It’s a vibrant and dramatic show guaranteed to warm the heart.
• Justicia Best Boys: A boys choir that excels in creating beautiful harmonies. The boys interact with our guests and are an excellent accompaniment to more formal dinners in the lodges

ACTIVITIES Pride ‘n Purpose: Pride ‘n Purpose is Ulusaba’s charitable arm committed to helping disadvantaged communities living adjacent to the reserve and working on a non-profit basis. For an authentic Shangaan experience, visit the local villages surrounding the Sabi Sand Game Reserve on a Community Tour and support Ulusaba’s charitable project, Pride ‘n Purpose. If you would like to volunteer your time to help with some of the ongoing projects during your visit to Ulusaba we can tailor-make an itinerary based on your interests and the time you have available. Excursions: See the Cascades and Canyons by helicopter or visit Blyde River Canyon. All excursions are available at an additional charge.

Getting to know Ulusaba
Ulusaba means “place of little fear”. That’s because the koppie where Rock Lodge sits provided the ancient Shangaan warriors with the perfect lookout point. Spend time at Rock Lodge and you’ll be flying with the eagles, or take a walk on the wild side back down to earth at Safari Lodge.
