Ulusaba Private Game Reserve

Ulusaba Private Game Reserve

This fabulous reserve, situated in Sabi Sands on the edge of Kruger National Park, is one of Sir Richard Branson’s exclusive escapes and is guaranteed to offer the very best in five-star service. If you’re seeking a memorable South African safari experience combined with added indulgences, look no further than Ulusaba.

Exquisite lodges

There are two main types of lodges available here at Ulusaba. Rock Lodge is located atop a verdant koppie, commanding astonishing views across to Kruger National Park and to the distant Drakensberg mountains whilst the suites of the Safari Lodge repose high in the trees, providing splendid views of a nearby waterhole for the ultimate game-watching experience. Whilst their interiors mirror the tones and textures of nature, the suites boast numerous little luxuries which will make you feel entirely at home.

Unique dining

Make the most of the excellent pan-African cuisine available at Ulusaba, all of which is included in the price of your stay. Breakfast is served buffet-style but you can also order cooked dishes directly should you wish. Lunch and afternoon tea are often provided on the patio to enable you to enjoy the spectacular views as you dine and dinner generally takes place communally in a traditional African boma with tribal singers and dancers providing a truly authentic experience.

Safari wonders

During your stay at Ulusaba, you will be treated two twice daily safari drives where you will seek Africa’s Big Five. Guided safari walks through the wild African bush are also available, during which you will learn about the indigenous flora and local customs as well as sighting a vast array of wildlife. Additional activities include stargazing and bird-watching sessions.

In between safaris, enjoy the fabulous facilities which Ulusaba has to offer. Take a dip in the refreshing pool, make use of one of the two floodlit tennis courts or indulge in a treatment at the Aroma Boma spa. It is no wonder guests love to return here.

Everything you need to know before planning your dream trip

When to travel
November to February is the busiest time, but March to April and September to October are popular. Whale watchers should visit July to October, whilst May to October is a good time for safaris – it can get cold on game drives so pack a fleece.
How to get there
Your holiday will begin with a British Airways or Virgin Atlantic flight from Heathrow to Johannesburg, or British Airways to Cape Town – the average flying time about 11 hours, although as there is only a 1 hour time difference there’s no tedious jet lag.
