Ulusaba Game Reserve

Kruger National Park, South Africa

About Ulusaba Game Reserve

Ulusaba, a Shangaan term meaning ‘Place of Little Fear’, gets its name from the ancient rocky outcrops originally used by warriors as a lookout point, now home to Ulusaba’s Rock Lodge.

Ulusaba, Sir Richard Branson’s luxury safari game lodge situated in the Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve, is the perfect destination for those looking to experience the African bush in a more contemporary way. Three incredible lodges, Safari Lodge, Rock Lodge and Cliff Lodge, offer five-star, award-winning accommodation in the Kruger Park with a range of activities to keep guests well entertained.

From safari game drives, bush walks, spa treatments and wine tastings, Ulusaba Game Reserve also has a magnificent Bush Observatory for those who are eager to star gaze in style.

Children of all ages are welcome at Ulusaba, with the exception of Safari Lodge allowing no children under 12. Children are endearingly called Cubs, and can enjoy a range of special age-appropriate, supervised activities in the Cub’s Club.

Why We Love Ulusaba Game Reserve

  • The Bush Observatory is a must! Guests can enjoy stargazing while the rangers point out and discuss various constellations.
  • Ulusaba’s Pride ‘n Purpose organisations allow guests to go a step further and volunteer their time in one of the hands-on projects tailored to a passion or skill of the gust themselves.
  • Waking up before dawn to embark on an early morning game drive is a truly magnificent experience. Guests can also enjoy a bush breakfast in the African wild.
