Ulusaba, which means “place of little fear” in the local Shangaan language, is located in the world-renowned Sabi Sands Game Reserve. Part of the Virgin Limited Edition group of super-luxury properties, it is Sir Richard Branson’s private game reserve in South Africa. At Ulusaba, you are able to experience the magic of the African bush in the utmost luxury and comfort. The accommodation and facilities are world-class, the game-viewing is excellent, and the location is breathtaking.
The staff at Ulusaba will make sure your every need is seen to. Facilities include features such as swimming pools, a gym, a wine cellar, star-gazing observatory, a spa, and tennis courts.
Ulusaba itself consists of two separate lodges, Rock Lodge and Safari Lodge. Rock Lodge sits atop a koppie (hill), with gorgeous views of the surrounding wilderness, with the Drakensberg Mountains as a backdrop. Safari Lodge is nestled within a canopy of trees overlooking a dry riverbed, with animals sometimes seen passing by on their way to the water hole. Both lodges include a variety of accommodation options, from two-bedroom to treehouse-style to exclusive-use family suites. Featuring magnificent views, private decks, and private plunge pools, Ulusaba is ideal for either families or couples. Rock Lodge welcomes children of all ages, and there are child-friendly activities and programmes on offer.
