Encounters with the Big Five

The Ulusaba Private Game Reserve is one of the fauna-richest private wildlife reserves in South Africa and promises memorable encounters with the Big Five. Part of Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Limited Edition, the two Ulusaba Safari Lodges rank among the most extraordinary of their kind in the world. Both treat guests to 5-star comfort and warm hospitality and even private plunge pools. As regards atmosphere and perspective, the two lodges offer quite different experiences in this wonderland of nature. Boasting a majestic hilltop setting, the Rock Lodge makes you feel “on top of the world” whether in your suite, in the pool or in the Aroma Boma. This also applies to families with the “Cub’s Club” offering supervision and activities for kids. The Safari Lodge, in contrast, has a tree-house concept with some rooms accessible via rope bridges only. It naturally also has a pool and an Aroma Boma offering close-to-nature relaxation treatments.
