I wasn't expecting to like this place quite as much as I did! I knew it would be lovely but it went beyond that. Although my first view of the rock suite bathroom was a greeting by two spiders (!), I didn't let that get in the way of a fabulous stay. Rock suite.....lovely, bit dark in the bathroom, bed... More

Everything about this place is amazing...honestly! From the moment to arrive to the minute you leave, you feel like a celebrity. The friendly customer service is like nothing we had ever experienced! The food, the drink, the lodge, the staff, the safari, the local village tour - everything is superb! We stayed in the safari lodge but went up to... More

Ulusaba, nestled in the bush and neighbouring Kruger park, is a special experience indeed. Its a high-end luxury resort so there are certain trimming and touches which one does come to expect to a degree, but even so I was wowed at the above-and-beyond approach to customer service several times. Trip to Ulusaba is a bit long-winded, involving at least... More

Wife and I spent three days in the Rock Lodge, staying in the Rock Suite. The suite was beautiful, comfortable, and had a wonderful view. The food was, indeed, gourmet with three main course selections every night. They readily met all dietary needs and requests. There were two game drives a day one at 0600 and the second started at...

My partner and i were married at rock lodge in May every detail was taken care of. We stayed at Ulusaba for 4 nights, and we both had the most amazing time from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. There is so much to say all packed into the four days. Food was amazing, all staff were... More

We have visited Ulusaba safari lodge on 2 occasions and wouldn't hesitate to return the value for money is superb. The quality of food and wine is of the highest standard my husband doesn't eat meat or veg but the chef worked very hard to deliver delicious meals for both lunch and dinner for him each day. I think some... More

As with most reviewers, I completely agree that Ulusaba's facilities, accommodation, food, staff and overall experience are nothing short of superb. From the greeting until departure, your every wish is fulfilled with grace, professionalism and confidence. I stayed purposefully 2 nights at the Rock lodge and 3 nites at Safari lodge to have both experiences and that was worth it.... More

My wife and went to Ulusaba last summer as part of a group. We stayed at Rock Lodge and had Trevor and Sam as our guide/ tracker. We have been fortunate to travel a lot, and I cannot imagine a better vacation experience than what we found at Ulusaba. Period. Staff was awesome from the moment we touched down until... More
