Ulsuba’s Safari Lodge

Ulsuba’s Fascinating Safari Lodge in the African Bush

In the bush under the forest canopy amongst the trees is the exclusive Ulusaba Safari Lodge. It’s on the banks of the dry Mabrak riverbed within the Sabi Sand Game Reserve. From the lodge you see the creatures of the wild as they wander to a watering hole. A world class retreat in South Africa owned by Sir Richard Branson.

The Safari Room in the African Bush

The Safari Room at the lodge is a blend of the modern and the conventional designs with touches of natural elements. The interiors are in soft neutral tones and patterns. The Safari Rooms are near the main lodge and includes spacious viewing decks and en-suite bathrooms. All with an impressive view of the watering hole as well as the riverbed.

The Elephant Room alongside a Migratory Route

The Elephant Room is called as such because you do not need to go out to see the enormous creature. It’s positioned near a migratory route where the elephants frequent. You can gaze upon these giants strolling on the open plains from your room. Ideal for groups of travellers, all are with spacious viewing decks as well as en-suite bathrooms.

The Spacious River Rooms amongst the Trees

The River Rooms are tucked among the Jackalberry trees. The tree house style accommodations have huge living areas and a fantastic view of the South African terrain and the river bed. Two of the four River Rooms also include a private plunge pool. Three are accessible via the swing bridge and are just a brief walk from the main lodge.

A Wilderness Retreat that Soothes the Mind and Body

Take a break from the high temperatures and cool down at the Safari Lodge pool. The pool area with a laid-back atmosphere is surrounded by greenery. A refreshing dip relieves you of physical and mental stress. Have a cocktail and find rest while soaking the sun’s rays or swimming. Or get a spa treatment at Aroma Boma after a swim.

Stargazing in the Bush at the Ulusaba Safari Lodge

Wouldn’t it be great if you can watch the stars in the African sky while staying in the wilderness? Gaze at the stars as darkness sets in at Safari Lodge’s Bush Observatory.
