Ulusaba Safari Lodge is located on a 13,500ha private concession on the western border of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve. Built under a canopy of ancient trees along the banks of the ephemeral Mabrak River, Ulusaba Safari Lodge really feels like the heart of life in the bush. Relish an authentic African safari experience with morning and evening game drives where you can witness the Big 5, or get closer to the earth with a series of guided nature walks where you can track the more elusive creatures of the bush.
Stargaze unpolluted night skies, engage in bird-watching endeavours, unwind during romantic moonlit bush dinners and embark on a local community tour that offers an insight into modern Shangaan lifestyle. The lodge’s accommodation consists of a Safari Room close to the main lodge which can be made interleading with the Safari Suite, Elephant Rooms, River Rooms and a Treehouse Suite. Adding to the adventure, some of the rooms are only accessible by a swing bridge. All rooms are decorated in a contemporary African, luxurious style and have five-star amenities while providing fascinating views of the animals as that stroll past on their way to the nearby watering hole.
Other onsite facilities include a swimming pool, the treehouse viewing deck overlooking the Xikwenga Dam where elephants and hippos play in the water, tennis courts, a gym, spa treatments and gift shop. Dining is decadent at Ulusaba, and the renowned chefs have crafted numerous dishes, paired with wines from the onsite cellar. Children older than 12 years old are welcome at the lodge. Combine your stay with a trip to Cape Town and Victoria Falls for the full Southern Africa experience.
