Carved deep into the Ulusaba rock itself and elevated above the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, Ulusaba Rock Lodge offers incredible views over the vast Lowveld and the Drakensberg mountain range in the distance. Ideal for families and romantics alike, this lodge will bring you close to the wilderness, while letting you indulge in luxury and impeccable service. The Sabi Sand Reserve shares an unfenced border with the Kruger National Park, allowing for incredible 4x4 game drives to search for Africa's Big 5 as well as thrilling walking safaris and bird watching.

A stargazing excursion or night time game drive will bring a different perspective to this magnificent environment. When you're not out exploring the surrounds, you can easily spend your days relaxing at the lodge, lounging beside the infinity pool with a drink in hand and enjoying the breathtaking views of the wilderness. Head over to the Aroma Boma treatment centre for a rejuvenating spa treatment or massage, or get more active in the fully-equipped gym.

Ulusaba Rock Lodge is an idyllic safari destination for young families and couples, and its elevated position affords you fabulous views overlooking waterholes in the distance.

Rock Suite

Ideal for families, the spacious two-bedroom suite features a master en suite bedroom overlooking stunning views of the sprawling bushland, with a smaller adjoining room for two children. Raised wooden decks provide picturesque views of the surrounding landscape, a perfect place to watch the sunset after a day of revelry under the African sun.

Rock Cliff Room

With only eight rooms, you will always enjoy an exclusive and luxurious atmosphere. The lodge consists of four rooms, one Master Suite, two Makwela Suites and one Rock Suite. The rooms are individually designed to bring a taste of Africa to the elegant furnishings and you will find modern as well as traditional African art, tastefully chosen for each room. All the rooms are air conditioned and have private decks from which to enjoy the panoramic views of the savannah. Rooms are spacious, have beautiful en suite bathrooms and offer complimentary mini-bars as well as tea-and-coffee-making facilities.

Because they are built across the rock face, suites can run over three levels, with stairs connecting each floor.

Makwela Suite

The two Makwela Suites enjoy all the luxuries of the standard rooms, but have the added convenience of their own private plunge pools. These rooms are ideal for couples who prefer a private place to cool off in the afternoon.

The Master Suite is ideal for romantics, as it stands on its own, a little removed from the other suites and boasts a private entrance. Here you will also find a private plunge pool, creating a wonderful romantic spot for honeymooners.

The Rock Suite consists of two en suite rooms that are connected and forms the ideal place for families or two couples travelling together.


The Aroma Boma beauty treatment centre offers a range of relaxing massages and beauty treatments to rejuvenate your senses after a day on safari. The gym is ideal for those who feel like an energising workout.

The Cub's Club offers a fun and educational place for children up to the age of 11 to learn about the wilderness and enjoy it in their own way. They'll each receive a backpack on arrival, filled with fun goodies and they can also enjoy special Cub meals that are specially tailored to their needs.

The infinity pool is probably one of the best spots from which to enjoy the magnificent views and it has its own natural waterfall, creating a wonderful, natural feel. Lounge beside the water and enjoy drinks and refreshments from the poolside bar, served to you on your deck chair.


The resident chefs at Ulusaba are dedicated to bringing you only the finest cuisine at every mealtime. Sit back to enjoy hearty breakfasts, delicious lunches and romantic dinners, tailored according to your dietary preferences while you sip on exquisite South African wines, choosing one from the impressive wine collection. Meals are generally communal, allowing you the opportunity to chat to other guests and make new friends.

For a more intimate, special dining experience, you can enjoy your meal in the bush, by the light of the stars and candles.
