Ulusaba is one of several private reserves in the Sabi Sand Nature Reserve: a private 64,000-hectare wilderness that shares its eastern border with the Kruger National Park. With 10,000 acres of traversing land and fenceless boundaries with the surrounding reserves, Ulusaba is an excellent wildlife destination. Top that with larger-than-life luxury at either of the two lodges and you've got the classic African luxury safari.
Ulusaba, meaning 'Place of Little Fear' strikes a good balance between nature and nurture - as well as being an excellent place to observe the 'Big Five', it is also an ideal place to kick back and unwind. Ulusaba re-defines the rules of a safari lodge and taken a step away from the traditional colonial style by offering swimming pools, gymnasiums, a wine cellar, Aroma Boma spas with panoramic views and tennis courts. With all of these facilities, you really need to plan your days so you can enjoy safari walks, moon-lit bush dinners and of course, the twice-daily game drives.
Safari Lodge is built along the banks of the dry Mabrak riverbed, where guests will love the sense of adventure as they cross the swing bridges between the tree house rooms while elephants, bushbuck, lion and other local wildlife pass by.
Children of any age are welcome at the Rock Lodge but must be 12 or above to stay at the Safari Lodge. Younger pride members of the family can visit the Cub's Club, which runs a fun daily program of activities aiming to both entertain and educate cubs about their surroundings.

At Rock Lodge you will find spectacular panoramic views over miles of bush, the wildlife roaming within, and the beauty of the lowveld (bushy grassland plain) below, all set against a backdrop of the Drakensberg Mountain range far in the distance. Rock Lodge is the epitome of luxury safari accommodation in South Africa. As Ulusaba is a Private Game Reserve the service, facilities and suites are all excellent.
