Accommodation

Safari Suite

This private suite is next to the Main Lodge and is accessed through its own entrance into a walled garden with boma fire pit. There is a separate spacious lounge that opens onto a large viewing deck with plunge pool, outdoor shower and private dining table for up to 8 guests. The suite boasts an en-suite bathroom with a separate WC and an additional guest bathroom next to the lounge. The Safari Suite can be interconnected with the Safari Room to sleep up to 4 guests.

Treehouse Suite

A spacious and very unique suite featuring a private deck with views over Xikwenga Dam where hippos and elephants come to bathe. There is also a large viewing deck adjacent to the room perfect for breakfasts, lunches and dinners. The Treehouse Suite offers ultimate seclusion and ideal for honeymooners. The location of the suite makes it the perfect choice for avid photographers and birders. The Treehouse Suite is an approximate 10 minute walk from the main lodge and is accessible by swing bridges and raised walkways.

River Room

Built tree house style and very private Ulusaba has four River Rooms, with two rooms offering private plunge pools. All are very spacious with snuggling seating areas and striking views of the river bed or bush. Ideal for those celebrating or enjoying a romantic escape as these rooms are secluded and tucked between jackalberry trees. Three of the River Rooms are accessible by swing bridge and are a short walk from the main Lodge.

Elephant Room

There are three spacious Elephant Rooms with en-suite bathrooms and large viewing decks offering stunning views over the bush. Elephants regularly use a migratory route that passes by these rooms which allows for excellent up-close-and personal game viewing! The location of the 3 Elephant Rooms are ideal for friends traveling together or families with teens wishing to be close to their parents.

Safari Room

There is one Safari Room close to the Main Lodge, which can be interconnected with the Safari Suite to create a two bedroom suite. This room offers a viewing deck and en-suite bathroom with great views.

Dining

Bush Dining

Ulusaba's internationally renowned chefs have developed numerous pan-African dishes influenced by many African cultures, flavours and spices. Their recipes are constantly refreshed and consist of seasonal, local ingredients. Whether dining under the African sky, in the Boma, on a deck or in the dining room, the menus and meals promise to be exciting, social and inspirational. All breads and pastries are home-baked daily.

Private Dining

Of course, if you’d like a more intimate experience, we’d be delighted to organise private dining for you either on a secluded deck or at a location of your choice. Be sure to win some brownie points by organising this before arrival and we’ll make sure we ramp up the romance.

Outdoor Dining

Dining on the deck with great views over Xikwenga Dam where the hippos come to play.

Wedding Dinner

There are almost as many choices of location for your reception as there are for your ceremony. The location will also be dependent on the size of your group.

Activities

01
Game Drives

Anyone who’s been on safari before knows that no two game drives are ever the same! There are two daily game drives at Ulusaba, one leaving early in the morning and one leaving late afternoon, each lasting around three hours. Times will vary depending on the season, but you should always keep your eyes peeled for the Big 5! You’ll traverse over 13,500 hectares of private reserve with your dedicated Ranger and Tracker who will tailor your game drive just for you!

02
Walking Safari

Depending on the weather there is usually a safari walk directly after breakfast if you fancy it. Your Ranger and Tracker will guide you and will point out various birds and animals – this is a great opportunity to see smaller creatures that are often missed when you’re on the game vehicles. They will also teach you some fascinating facts about the medicinal use of trees and plants along the way.

03
Stargazing

Far away from all of the light pollution you get in most cities and towns, a visit to Ulusaba is a great chance to gaze at the night sky.

04
Tennis

If you fancy a hit of tennis, there are two tennis courts. The lodge provides balls and racquets that you can borrow. The courts are floodlit so you can also play at night, and Ulusaba will organise a security escort just to make sure the animals don’t gate crash your game!

05
Spa

The Aroma Boma spa at Ulusaba is the perfect antidote to all the excitement of being out on the game drives. Book in for a relaxing treatment, from facial rituals to massages and essential grooming. At Safari Lodge, the Aroma Boma is built on the banks of the dry Mabrak riverbed amongst the trees and away from the main lodge area, so the only likely disturbance is perhaps the odd elephant wandering past! Ulusaba uses a range of products from Africology which prides itself on its African roots, taking inspiration from home and using local active ingredients including rooibos, aloe, marula and African potato.

06
Pride ‘n Purpose

Pride ‘n Purpose is Ulusaba’s charitable arm committed to helping disadvantaged communities living adjacent to the reserve and working on a non-profit basis. For an authentic Shangaan experience, visit the local villages surrounding the Sabi Sand Game Reserve on a Community Tour and support Ulusaba’s charitable project, Pride ‘n Purpose. If you would like to volunteer your time to help with some of the ongoing projects during your visit to Ulusaba we can tailor-make an itinerary based on your interests and the time you have available.
