Ulusaba Safari LodgeUlusaba Private Game Reserve
Ulusaba Private Game Reserve's Safari Lodge is perfectly located in the western sector of the Sabi Sands Game Reserve - bordering on the world famous Kruger National Park. The Lodge can be accessed by road or air with both chartered and scheduled flights operating daily - flying time is approximately one and a half hours from Johannesburg or 30 minutes from Nelspruit. Alternatively it is approximately a 2 and a half hour's drive from Kruger Mpumalanga Airport in Nelspruit.
Safari Lodge is built on the edge of a dry riverbed, underneath a canopy of ancient trees. The rooms are built in 'tree house' style offering guests a feeling of being in the heart of the bush. Game viewing opportunities are exciting as guests gaze down on the local wildlife passing by on their way to the nearby watering hole.
Ulusaba Safari Lodge at a Glance
Ulusaba Safari Lodge Accommodation
All of the Rooms at Safari Lodge are quiet and secluded and the bath tubs and plunge pools have been thoughtfully placed offering great opportunities to lie back and watch the natural world go by. Some of the rooms are accessed by rope bridges, offering a feeling of adventure and excitement. The rooms are split into Safari, Elephant and River Rooms, some of which have private plunge pools
The Treehouse Suite is built overlooking the Xikwenga Dam - about a 15 minute walk from the main lodge, along swing bridges and a raised walkway - this unit offers visitors a tranquil feeling of seclusion and a chance to not only be at one with nature, but also to watch the animals up close as they come to bathe and cool down in the nearby dam.
Ulusaba Safari Lodge Game Drives
Game Drives in Ulusaba are exceptional with some of the finest and most qualifies rangers and trackers in the reserve. There are usually two daily game drives, traversing over 13,500 hectares in open landrovers looking for not only Africa's 'Big Five' - lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard, but also a vast range of smaller animals like zebra, giraffe, bushbuck and other animals, reptiles, birds and plants. The rangers have a vast knowledge of the wildlife - animals, plants and birds as well as the delicate balance of different ecosystems and conservation in general.
When guests aren't out game viewing, there are plenty of comfortable spots at Safari Lodge where one can relax and enjoy the bushveld atmosphere. Take a dip in the fresh water pool, watch for passing elephants and bushbuck from the gym or try a relaxing treatment in the Boma Spa. At night gaze at the stars from the Bush Observatory
