Ulusaba – Sir Richard Branson’s Private Game Reserve is beautifully situated in the heart of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, bordering the world renowned Kruger National Park in South Africa and renowned for its concentrations of big game and diversity of animal and plant species.

Ulusaba is part of Virgin Limited Edition – Sir Richard Branson’s portfolio of unique retreats.

Both Federal Air and Bateleur Air operate direct flights from Johannesburg to Ulusaba’s private airstrip.

Ulusaba is home to amongst others – Africa’s ‘Big 5’ – lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino. Guests can enjoy twice daily safari drives with experienced Rangers and Trackers, in the early mornings and early afternoons. Game Drives are conducted in open Land Rovers where the guides will share their knowledge and love of the African bush – its fauna, flora and conservation. Guests can also join guided safari walks to see some of the smaller creatures which are often missed on the game vehicles.

Children under 12 years are welcome to stay at Ulusaba Rock Lodge where there is a special Cub’s Club designed for keeping children entertained and to ensure that they gain the maximum from their wildlife experience. There are a number of activities individually tailored to each child and including treasure hunts, arts and crafts, safari walks, specialised spa treatments, cuisine and numerous other educational activities. Babysitting by experienced staff members is complimentary.

Ulusaba Rock and Safari Lodges offer spa treatments providing the perfect antidote to the excitement of a game drive. A whole range of treatments are available from facials and massages through to essential grooming rituals. Treatments can be provided in the Aroma Boma treatment rooms, on one of the outdoor decks or in the comfort of guests’ own rooms.

There are a number of activities in the near vicinity where guests can experience a helicopter flight above the Cascades and Canyons of the Blyde River, interact with Elephants at Elephant Whispers, visit a traditional Shangaan village or support Ulusaba's charitable project, Pride ‘n Purpose. There is also the unique opportunity to incorporate a volunteer experience into a stay at Ulusaba and become involved with hands-on community projects, really experiencing a different culture while also giving a little something back to others.

Meal times at Ulusaba are sumptuous and the chefs prepare numerous pan-African dishes influenced by many different African cultures, flavours and spices. Meals are enjoyed under an African sky, in the outdoor dining Boma, or on a deck in the dining room. All the breads and pastries are baked daily and Ulusaba caters for private meals, special occasions and children.
