The adventure begins with your ride to the main lodge. The entire staff is EXCEPTIONAL ! They are Warm, Friendly , professional and very patient. They are the... More

For years I'd wanted to do a safari and had done endless research on countries, regions and bases and Ulusaba topped all I could wish for. The staff make every visitor welcome, and nothing is too much trouble. As an all inclusive resort you hope for quality and Ulusaba delivers big time. From the second you are collected at the... More

We stayed at rock lodge first and moved to Safari part way through our week. So I'm going to try and avoid repeating everything I wrote on that review. Safari Lodge has a few more guests than rock lodge, at something like 12 rooms, but they are much more spaced out. We stayed in River 4 which is about 5... More

This was our second trip to Ulusaba within 4 months - loved it so much the first time couldn't wait to go back! Everything about the place is simply superb, especially the staff. Kim and Blair (just to name a couple of the front of house staff) were so welcoming, and nothing was a problem! Then there are the game... More

This is our 3rd visit to Ulusaba & this is the only place on the planet we ever go back to on holiday. We stayed 7 nights in a safari room-well some of the time anyway & the rooms are totally adequate for what is required. A friend had a Elephant room and this was larger, but that was about... More

We have just returned from a three night stay at Ulusaba where the four of us stayed at the magnificently appointed Cliff Lodge. There have been a plethora of superlatives from earlier posts on tripadvisor which normally puts you on alert but I have to say we pretty much have to agree with all of them. The people normally make... More
