Situated in the heart of the Sabi Sand Reserve, bordering the world-renowned Kruger National Park, Ulusaba Safari Lodge lies beneath a canopy of ancient jackalberry trees and offers a truly remarkable wilderness experience. Ideal for families and romantics alike, the lodge has only 11 rooms, promising privacy and uninterrupted views of the beautiful African savannah.

The lodge is perched on the edge of a dry riverbed and you'll regularly see animals walking past on their way to the nearby watering hole. Relax beside the swimming pool and enjoy these views or head out on twice daily game drives to search for Africa's Big 5. A daily walking safari, guided by an expert ranger and tracker, will teach you more about the diverse ecosystems, while a visit to the observatory in the evening will give you the chance to enjoy unspoiled stargazing.

Meals at Ulusaba are definitely events to remember, as the resident chefs strive toward creating the perfect fine dining experience. Enjoy your delicious breakfasts, lunches and dinner either at the African boma, a traditional meeting place around a large campfire, or on the lantern-lit deck that enjoys beautiful views of the surrounds.

Pair your meals with one of the many exquisite South African wines on offer to make dinners a truly memorable affair. For a more romantic dinner, you can head out further into the bush for a private bush dinner, where you'll sit down to a delicious meal, accompanied by the sounds of the surrounding wilderness.

Elephant Room

The 11 tree-house styled rooms are connected by rope bridges, creating a truly memorable safari experience. Rooms are divided into Safari, Elephant and River Rooms, and you'll also find the exclusive Treehouse Suite on these grounds.

The Safari Rooms are situated close to the main lodge area and are spacious, comfortable and elegantly decorated in African colours and natural elements. En suite bathrooms feature ball and claw baths and separate showers, while the room has a beautiful king-sized bed, mosquito nets, air conditioning and a ceiling fan.

Traveller Reviews

  • We absolutely loved South Africa and nearly everything was beyond our expectations. Ulusaba was also exceptional. The accommodation was beautiful, the safari incredible and the service without fault.

    Matthew Smythe, February 2016
  • The Ulusaba experience was great. The lodge, staff, ranger and tracker were all top quality. In two days I was able to see the Magnificent 7! I would certainly recommend.

    Pablo Bernad, September 2013
  • We had an awesome time. We absolutely loved Ulusaba and everyone there. It was a perfect choice. Chuck and I are considering going back to Ulusaba ourselves for our 30th wedding anniversary next year. We will keep you posted. We got to see all the big five and even saw the lions and leopards mating. All the staff at Ulusaba were exceptional. No complaints from us about anything. We would go back in a heartbeat.

    Donna Miller, August 2013
  • I will write more in a few days once I get through the big backlog at work, but in short the trip was amazing. Ulusaba and its staff were lovely. We definitely want to come back.

    Rakesh Chopra, December 2012
  • Ulusaba was fantastic! Really great service, we really enjoyed it.

    Jina Kwon, September 2012
  • Our favourite was Ulusaba Safari Lodge. It is hard to put into words how incredible those five days were. The game drives and the staff were top notch. They made us feel like family.

    Christie Sabat, September 2010
  • Ulusaba was amazing, seriously the best place we have ever stayed, and that is saying a lot because we have stayed in luxury resorts all over the world! You should highly recommend it without hesitation to all of your clients!! They upgraded us to a nicer room without saying a word (they must just do it automatically if available), the service was amazing, food incredible, game drives fantastic, the staff were the best, seriously everything was perfect!! We couldn't have asked for a better experience, there is seriously nothing they could do to make it better!

    Michelle Rogers, December 2008
  • We were made to feel so welcome again, Llane and Karl met us off the plane, every member of staff went out of their way to say welcome back and we really felt special. The game viewing here is so good and this year was no exception - Jeff came home with close to 4000 photos! The lodge and rooms are lovely - and it is always really nice to see the little changes and improvements they make each year. The service has always been good, and we were really pleased to note that the standard of the food has dramatically improved on last year.

    Jeff Stanford, October 2008
  • Animal viewing at Ulusaba was amazing. I would highly recommend either camp!

    Maureen Lonergan, October 2008
  • We loved Ulusaba and would probably rate it our first choice over all the other camps we have visited.
