My fiance and I went there at the beginning of September 08 and had the most wonderful time ever! The staff were so friendly and warm it was unbelievable. We also were lucky enough to get a wonderful ranger-tracker pair -Stuart and John, who were both so wonderful and gave us the time of our lives. John's expert tracking skills are out of this world and spotted several things without even having to make that much of an effort! Stuart was very informative and kept the jokes rolling throughout the whole time we were there. The weather was also great -very cool for the first two days, then perfectly dry and sunny for the remaining two, which was lucky because my fiance (who was then my boyfriend) was waiting for a beautiful day so he could propose! Ahhh! All safari members (visitors and staff) were fantastic and couldn't have made the day any more special for us than they had. They even went to the effort of dressing up our room in rose petals and setting up a table for us so we could have a private meal together in our room. For anyone going for the first time, I would recommend going in September as there aren't too many leaves on the trees so animal spotting is much easier. Also, bring a wooly hat and jumper for the morning drives -they are chilly!! I would definately recommend an Ulusaba experience to anyone who can get it. Highly impressed!
