Everything about this experience will change your life. The Rangers, the service people, the safari drives, and the local community tours are truly unbelievable. I was only at the lodge for three days, i wish that i had dedicated more time to it. I will be returning with my children as soon as possible.

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
