Ulusaba Private Game Reserve is located in the western sector of the Sabi Sand Reserve, beside Kruger National Park. It is a 1 hour 20 minute flight from Johannesburg and a 30-minute flight from Kruger Mpumalanga International airport. The road journey from KMIA to Ulusaba takes approximately 2 hours 30 minutes. Ulusaba has 21 rooms and suites spread over two lodges - Rock Lodge and Safari Lodge.
Rock Lodge is situated on top of a Koppie, 600 feet above the Sabi Sands Reserve, and the natural granite rock forms part of the unusual architecture, allowing for spectacular panoramic views. Each of the 10 rooms and suites are individually designed using the colours of different African tribes or regions. Room types include four Rock Cliff rooms, a Master suite, two Makwela suites with private plunge pools and a two-bedroom rock suite, all of which have superb private viewing decks.
There is a large dining area with wonderful views over the bush and a pool to relax by during the heat of the day. For those who wish to use the facilities, there is also a tennis court and a massage centre called the 'aroma boma'. Try South African wines from the wine cellar, go stargazing at the bush observatory, embark on a walking safari or simply enjoy the twice-daily wildlife drives.
