Taste the spoils of Africa - in the peace and tranquillity of the pristine South African bushveld - with a safari at Ulusaba, Sir Richard Branson's private game reserve. 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 where the Big Five safari roam free. Translating into 'place of little fear' Ulusaba is a game reserve steeped in African heritage and culture; the hill where the lodge sits provided ancient Shangwaan warriors with the perfect vantage point.

Rich diversity is celebrated in every element of a stay at Ulusaba. Wine is a speciality, capturing the true essence of South Africa. Experience bespoke wine tastings, tailored to your personal preferences. Marvel at the abundance of wine labels, sourced from small family-owned cellars and more established brands. Everybody is catered for, whether the choice is a Pinot Noir, Chardonnay or Chenin Blanc. In the evenings, guests dine together ‘family style’. For a more intimate experience, a private dinner is a special location can be easily arranged.

Guests can enjoy the 13,500 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. Over two thirds of staff are from the surrounding local villages, which upholds Ulusaba's ethical employment principles.

The emphasis here is on exceptional personal service; attentive staff ensure that your creature comforts are not compromised. When not on twice daily game drives, soak up some sun by the pool or relax with a spa treatment at the Aroma Boma. To explore further afield, cultural, wildlife or scenic helicopter tours are available at an additional cost.


Ulusaba is approximately a 1 hour and 20 minute flight from OR Tambo (Johannesburg) International Airport (JNB), or 30 minutes from Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport (KMIA). Ulusaba has its own private airstrip and there are daily scheduled and charter flights available. Federal Air flies directly to Ulusaba. You can also travel by road from KMIA, which will take approximately two and a half hours.


Ulusaba has 21 rooms and suites spread over two lodges. Rock Lodge is 'Heaven in Heaven', perched high on the summit of a koppie with views over the South African bush below.

Nearly 500 metres away is Safari Lodge, known as 'Heaven on Earth'. Built along the banks of a dry riverbed, Safari Lodge guests cross swing bridges between the exquisite tree house style rooms. For the ultimate experience, guests can share their time between both lodges.
