Ulusaba is Richard Branson’s luxury private reserve in the far west of South Africa’s Sabi Sands. The reserve is home to two lodges – Rock Lodge and Safari Lodge.

Rock Lodge has a phenomenal setting on the top of a large rock kopje. There is no other camp in the entire Kruger with this kind of setting. The lodge design is absolutely stunning. 

Rock Lodge is a fabulous place, but Ulusaba does have the disadvantage of being the most westerly reserve, and is therefore close to the fences and the local communities which can easily be seen from camp. Nevertheless, a great-looking lodge with a truly unique location.

The eight suites literally wrap around the top of the kopje, so have breathtaking views out across the Sabi Sands. There are several different categories of suite, ranging from extremely comfortable to ultra-luxurious. There are four Rock Cliff rooms, one Master Suite, two Makwela Suites and the Rock Suite, which has two bedrooms. The Master Suite and Makwela Suite both have private plunge pools. The main areas of the lodge, also deserve a special mention, especially the lounge and dining area with their ceiling to floor windows.

Game viewing here is very good; this is a classic Big Five viewing area. As Ulusaba shares its game-driving area with a number of other lodges, there is more of an opportunity to track game but it does mean that there are more vehicles around.
