Overview of Ulusaba Safari Lodge

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 (only children over 12 permitted) and romantics alike, the lodge has only eight rooms, promising privacy and uninterrupted views of the beautiful African savannah.

There is a long suspension bridge that acts as a walkway over an established elephant wallow; watch them play in the mud as you sauter along the swing bridge and be sure to have your camera to hand.

The lodge is perched on the edge of a dry riverbed and you will regularly see animals walking past on their way to the 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 unspoilt stargazing.

Here you will also find a private dining area on the large wooden deck, offering incredible views of the dam.

      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 bathtubs and separate showers, while the room has a beautiful king-sized bed, mosquito nets, air conditioning and a ceiling fan

      General Facilities

      At the Aroma Boma spa treatment centre, you can expect to relax entirely as you enjoy a range of beauty treatments and massages by the professional, highly-trained therapists.

      The comfortable, welcoming lounge area has an open fireplace where you can share stories of your day or simply enjoy a nightcap before turning in.

      The swimming pool is the best place to cool down after a thrilling morning safari, and you can soak up even more of the African sun on the deck chairs as you sip on a cocktail or refreshing fruit juice.
