The lodge is absolutely stunning. Beautifully decorated. Our room was wonderful with a large bathroom and huge balcony. We saw a elephant below us within minutes of stepping out to admire the views. All the staff were very friendly and professional. The game drives were all brilliant. Thank you Ryan and Kaiza. Our first sighting was a leopard then it... More

This was my second trip to Ulusaba, and my husband's first. Set high up on a hill, the lodge is beautifully decorated with exquisite attention to detail. The rooms are luxurious and very spacious with stocked mini bar, seating areas and crisp linen on an enormous yet comfortable bed . The bathrooms have spectacular views of the bush below, and...

Dear Dr_DGreen, Thank you very much for taking the time to share your thoughts with us following your recent stay at Ulusaba. It’s not every day that a vulture soars past you whilst you’re enjoying a bubble bath; you can never predict exactly what wildlife encounter you will enjoy whilst staying in the bush but you can always rely on...

This was our very first safari and Ullusaba more than exceeded our expectations. Sean and Jimmy met us at the landing strip with a chilled glass of champagne. The Federal Air flight dropped at Ullusaba first and then continues to Sabi Sands. On the return you see the Sabi airstrip; nothing in comparison to the Ullusaba welcome. Rock Lodge takes... More

We were lucky enough to stay at this lodge during our recent trip to South Africa. It is located on the top of a hill in Ulusaba. The rooms were spectacular. The bed is very nice and has retractable mosquito netting around it, very romantic. The room was well appointed with local art. Despite the fantastic room, we didn't spend... More

I have never been on safari before so was not quite sure what to expect. This place I have to say was awesome. The views over Sabi Sands are spectacular. The rooms have proper AC, again great views, are well equipped, quiet and well laid out. The maid and laundry service were very efficient, and to a high standard. Food... More

It's difficult to describe how amazing this place is. The staff are superb, nothing is too much trouble but they act in a totally friendly way, not ingratiating like some 5 star places. You are made to feel totally at home, can help yourself from the bar but in fact they are so kind that we rarely had to pour... More

Stayed here a number of years ago, on our way to Mauritius , had an amazing relaxing few days. Views are impossible to describe, the altititude combined with the hundreds mile views, the smattering of Elephants, Giraffes and more below you at the water hole, pretty much no way to do justice to describing that.
