After several safari lodges in several different countries, I keep coming back to the wonderful experience I had a Ulusaba. The staff were friendly, engaging, professional and knowledgeable. Everything was done with the utmost care to ensure our stay was perfect. The wine and food pairing every evening stands out as an example of the lodge knowing it's clientele. I... More

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights for our Honeymoon. It was an incredible experience from start to finish. We flew to Ulusaba airstrip with Fed Air (who we would recommend). Here we were greeted by our Ranger (Brandon), who congratulated us on our marriage and helped us fill in a brief form whilst we sipped on some... More

You actually don't need 200 characters to describe here….excellent….would be enough. The staff make you extremely welcome in a relaxed informal manor. The ambience is great as is the layout and the rangers and trackers extremely good. Food is very well presented and prepared. Well done to you all…a winning formulae. It was my daughter Verity's first safari and we... More

We were looking forward to our second stay at Safari Lodge but due to being refurbished we were switched to Rock Lodge instead. The views are beautiful, as are the public rooms, however, I do not recommend to anyone if you have any walking issues. Stairs everywhere with steep and unever surfaces throughout. Although some of the rooms had been... More

Staying at Ulusaba was one of the best experiences of our lives. We expected a 5 star experience based on the reviews on tripadvisor......but Ulusaba even exceeded those expectations. Game viewing: Incredible! We stayed for 5 days and could not believe the amount of wildlife that is just outside your front door, literally! We got lucky and saw all of... More

We loved Ulusaba; we stayed in the Rock Lodge accommodation. The lodge is in an amazing location, set on the hillside with fantastic views across the Kruger. We also visited the Safari Lodge which is again of a very high standard. This lodge does not have the views but it has direct access to the waterhole where you can view... More
