Ulusaba - Safari Lodge

Tailored Just For You

Our personal travel specialists go above and beyond to give you the best luxury experience, and every holiday we create is tailored just for you by our experts.

‘A full on Wildnerness adventure…with luxury’

The tree house style rooms at Ulusaba Safari Lodge blend perfectly into the natural setting of this romantic wildlife retreat, owned by Sir Richard Branson. Cross a swing bridge to arrive at your room and unwind on your deck before that rewarding and enlightening game drive. You’ll traverse more than 13,500 hectares in a land Rover in search of the ‘big 5’ of lions, buffalo, leopards, elephants and rhinoceros. And why not enjoy a spa treatment afterwards or a dip in the pool?

In Our Opinion

‘A feeling of warm community is created here, where experiences are shared and guests are treated like family. The Safari Lodge features elegant splashes of luxury and extra attention to detail; guests can blend experiences by splitting their stay between this and the neighbouring Rock Lodge’
