Ulusaba Safari Lodge is a Mpumalanga game lodge providing a wildlife experience for tourists visiting Wild Frontier.

Sir Richard Branson’s Ulusaba Safari Lodge is located beneath a canopy of ancient trees on the edge of a dry riverbed in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve. Ulusaba Private Game Reserve is located in the western sector of the Sabi Sand Reserve, near Kruger National Park in the Mpumalanga province of South Africa.

“The African Bush – just the thought of it conjures up some fascinating images of breathtaking wilderness, sunrise safaris, and a retreat far away from the city. Here your imagination becomes reality. At Ulusaba, we have set out to create the most beautiful game reserve in Africa. I hope someday we’ll be able to share this with you”. ~ Sir Richard Branson
