Every detail of our stay was perfect. We booked our trip rather last minute and stayed in the least expensive accommodation - which was amazing!! Ulusaba sent a questionnaire so they could appropriately fit our family with the best guide. It was spot on - we had Brandon as our ranger/guide and Jack as our tracker. It was a perfect... More

Just returned from a 4 night stay at Rock Lodge. I can honestly say that this was the best holiday we have ever experienced. The accommodation, hospitality and attention to detail was absolute perfection. Game drives - Ranger Jason and Tracker Don were brilliant. Their knowledge of and respect for the animals was abundant. As a keen, novice photographer, their... More

We have just returned from spending 5 nights in this amazing lodge. We chose the master suite which was luxurious with amazing views. We spent many hours soaking in our own dip pool or reading on the balcony watching the wild life below whilst sipping vodka tonics having enjoyed an amazing morning game drive with our knowledgeable & humorous guide...

Stayed here for a few days in July. One of the best places I've ever stayed. Animals everywhere. We managed to see everything we hoped to see in the few days we were here for. All the staff made us feel really welcome. Great place.

Luxury hunting lodge, perched on a steep hillside providing spectacular views. Well designed, just not my architectural preference as I prefer more bright designs allowing natural light in. Bed/bath rooms located on two different floors due to architecture on steep hillside. One weird aspect is having a toilet in the middle of the bathroom with no door or wall. Was... More

Great location, great rooms & superbly friendly staff. The interaction with other guests also made the stay more amazing. The food was very good, without being overwhelming. But the friendliness of the staff made the stay worthwhile. Pierre our ranger along with Orange our observation man. Patience was outstanding. This odes not undermine the others at all.
