We stumbled across Ulusaba when we were looking through a wedding magazine for ideas on our honeymoon - we looked at other safari lodges but kept coming back to Ulusaba and knew then that we had to book it...and boy, it did not disappoint!
When we arrived at Ulusaba "airport" and were greeted by our ranger Sean with a glass of champagne we knew we had made the right choice! From then until the end of our stay things just got better and better!
The room we stayed in was out of this world - it was comfortable and luxurious at the same time and we were lucky enough to have a room with a plunge pool which was particularly relaxing after the morning game drive.
The food was amazing and was offered in abundance - you never went hungry that was for sure! We booked in for a private meal in the wine cellar one evening which added a touch of romance and exclusivity. Other than that we ate our meals together as a large group which was lots of fun.
All of the staff were friendly and accommodating - they really made you feel at home and nothing was too much to ask.
The game drives were amazing, all thanks to our fab ranger Sean and tracker James. They made sure we got to see everything which included wild dog and hyena pups, as well as the big 5. They also took the time to point out the smaller animals/creatures in the bush that often go unnoticed ...which my other half loved because it meant he got to use his macro lens!
All in all it was an absolutely awesome trip - we have some incredible photos and memories that will last forever. It was the most perfect way to start our married life together and we will be back....for every anniversary if we could afford it!!!
Thanks to everyone for making our honeymoon so special!
