Ulusaba Rock Lodge

Ulusaba Rock Lodge

On the border of South Africa’s iconic Kruger National Park, Ulusaba is Sir Richard Branson’s private game reserve. Its prime location in the middle of the Sabi Sand Reserve ensures awe-inspiring vistas as well as spectacular wildlife.

High atop a cliff, Ulusaba Rock Lodge offers stunning views across the lowveld toward the distant Drakensberg Mountains. Its ten rooms and suites provide opulent accommodation and are decorated with a unique combination of modern décor and traditional African art. Each room includes a lounge area, viewing deck, and en-suite bathroom. A stay at any of the rooms or suites promises a blissful night’s sleep, whether in one of the four Rock Cliff rooms, the Master Suite, the two Makwela Suites, or the two-bedroom Rock Suite. All suites also offer a private plunge pool.

Ulusaba’s talented chefs offer a taste of Africa in every bite. Local spices and flavors as well as international favorites find a spot on the table, alongside top South African vintages and French champagne. Hand-crafted breads and pastries are made daily, and chefs are delighted to cater for private meals, special occasions, and children’s requests.

Twice a day, experienced rangers and trackers lead voyages into the game-rich reserve. Experience wildlife as it was meant to be—free to roam wild. All of Africa’s “big five” inhabit the reserve: lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, and rhino. Other favorites frequently sighted include giraffe, zebra, cheetah, and hippo.

Relax and experience rejuvenating treatments in the Aroma Boma, Ulusaba’s unique spa. Its location on the banks of the dry Mabrak riverbed ensures complete privacy, and its exclusive use of Africology products yields amazing results.

“Elephant Whispers” is a program designed to allow guests to come face to face with the magnificent elephant herds, an exciting excursion for young and old alike. Other popular activities include stargazing, viewing wildlife from the treehouse viewing deck, exploring the cascades and canyons via helicopter, visiting a local Shangaan village, and supporting Ulusaba’s successful charitable project, “Pride ‘n Purpose.”
