This was my first time staying at Ulusaba and I hope it will not be the last. I spent 4 nights there with my wife and went on the game drives every day. The Ranger, Sean and Tracker James were both fantastic and deserve a special mention on this. Sean is as knowledgeable as they come in terms of animals...

We visited Ulusaba at the end of October 19th-21st for our honeymoon following our wedding in Mauritius. It really was perfection and though it took a lot of saving it certainly lived up to and surpassed our expectations. From our arrival in the waiting area by the airstrip to the amazing welcome in the lodge and a beautiful spacious Elephant...

Ulusaba has two locations, Cliff and Safari Resorts. Both are spectacular, but for people with an aversion to stairs the Safari Lodge is the right choice. We were shown to our room in the Cliff Rocks section and found it beautiful with great views up high, spacious and well decorated. But it was wrong for us because of so many...
