Ulusaba Safari Lodge is a fascinating place – guests have to cross swing bridges to reach their beautiful treehouse-style rooms, some of which have their own plunge pools!
ACCESS & LOCATION:
It is located on the bush floor which gives guests a wonderful sense of being amongst the game and in the thick of the action.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
The eleven luxurious rooms are split into Safari, Elephant and River Rooms. The Treehouse Suite overlooks the nearby Xikwenga Dam, a 15 minute walk along a raised walkway from the main lodge.
The Sabi Sands is fantastic for viewing the Big Five so the game-viewing here is very good, especially as Ulusaba shares its game-driving area with a number of other lodges. While this gives the benefit of a large area in which to find the best game, it does also mean that the build-up of traffic is some of the highest in the park. There is also the factor that Ulusaba is the most westerly reserve and is therefore close to the fences bordering the reserve and the local communities.
Nevertheless, a lovely, comfortable safari lodge that will deliver a great Big Five experience.
