Our complete family went to Ulusaba for the 2nd time for New Year celebrations in 2003.
What a place - this was our second trip as my wife and I had been there for our Silver wedding anniversary a couple of years earlier.
We stayed at both Rock Lodge and down at Safari Lodge - which was best is REALLY hard to decide. I think we would give Rock 11 out of 10 and Safari 10 out of 10. Rock wins because if you are ever fortunate enough to see a thunderstorm across the African plain there can be no better place to see the most fantastic lightning show.
The food is awesome and the staff are the most attentive lot I have ever met - even down to finding yet another bottle of Black Sambuka when we had drunk them dry!!!
Special celebrations are awesome - my son and his girlfriend had the most romantic meal set up in their room one night and our 25th wedding anniversary was something else.
Since I have been 2 colleagues from work have also been and Ulusaba has taken a special place in all their hearts as it has in ours.
Would recommend this place to anyone, especially for those very special occasions.
The rangers (we had Jobe both times) really know their stuff and seem to find animals when the untrained eye sees nothing. Watching Lions trying to drink from the waterhole as the hippo decide that its their waterhole just shows who really is king of the jungle.
If you want to see Africa, then this is a place which will torment you for years to come because all you will want to do is go back.
