Ulusaba | Sabie | Mpumalanga | South Africa

Taste the spoils of a safari in South Africa – in the peace and tranquillity of the unspoilt African bushveld. Owned by Sir Richard Branson Ulusaba Private Game Reserve is set in the heart of the Sabi Sands Game Reserve that borders the sprawling Kruger National Park in South Africa’s Mpumalanga province. Ulusaba Private Game Reserve awaits as your ultimate destination for a Big Five safari in South Africa. Because Ulusaba is privately owned, you’ll be able to enjoy over 10 000 acres of unspoilt, game-rich bush in near solitude. Experienced trackers and game rangers will accompany you on game drives in open land rovers, tracking the Big Five and sharing with you their vast knowledge of the surrounding wildlife.

As Ulusaba is a private game reserve, the emphasis is on exceptional personal service. Both of the luxury safari lodges cater for small groups, so your safari in South Africa is guaranteed to be exclusive and private. What’s more, the attentive staff and superb facilities will ensure that being in the middle of the African bush does not need to mean foregoing creature comforts. You’ll have the unique sights, sounds and smells of Africa on your doorstep – while still enjoying the kind of style and luxury you’d expect from a five star boutique hotel.
