Ulusaba is amazing!! From the moment you land at the airport you are treated like royalty as they greet you with a glass of bubbly. The staff is extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating, the food is fantastic, and they have great South African wines (along with anything else you would like to drink - the drinks are free flowing!!). Our room (elephant room) was absolutely beautiful (snacks, drinks, teas and really nice soaps and lotions awaited us) and we had a lovely private balcony. I would recommend splitting your time between Safari lodge and Rock lodge if possible. The views from Rock lodge are fantastic while you can see the animals (ie elephants, giraffes, hippos) up close at Safari lodge. The game drives are so amazing!! Our driver Steve was fantastic and really knew where to go. We saw the big 5 a couple times along with cheetahs, giraffes, wild dogs and hyenas. The drives take up 6 hours of the day but they are well worth it. They also break up the drives by serving coffee and tea in the morning and cocktails in the evening. I also recommend doing the village tour and getting a massage at the Safari lodge. Ulusaba was part of our two week honeymoon and was by far the best part!!
