Africa is a special place. This was my fourth safari and 3rd in South Africa. Every experience was beyond amazing and special. Game viewing, rangers, people, food, well....you get the idea. I felt compelled to write this review as Ulusaba was beyond special. Ulusaba was like going home to visit family you know and love. Each employee was caring and...

Loved the accommodation, the game drives with Brandon and jack were incredible. We saw absolutely everything and Brandon even helped with photography tips! Would definitely come back. The rock lodge had everything you needed and the food was plentiful and of a very high quality

When we arrived at Ulusaba Rock Lodge from Ulusaba airport, all six of us were immediately gobsmacked by the whole experience. We all had the same reaction: we just stood there and said "wow." Literally just "wow". My wife and I stayed in the Master Suite, whilst the other four stayed in two Rock Cliff rooms. All rooms were great,...

Spent 5 nights there with the family. To be balanced, some nit-picking. The location is at the edge of the reserve, so looking out to your left you can see towns in the distance. The rest of the views are spectacular. The rooms are okay, but nothing special. The two rooms we had looked a bit tired. Beyond that everything...

Everything about this experience will change your life. The Rangers, the service people, the safari drives, and the local community tours are truly unbelievable. I was only at the lodge for three days, i wish that i had dedicated more time to it. I will be returning with my children as soon as possible.

This was our 2nd visit to Ulusaba. We stayed 3 nights each at both Rock Lodge & Safari Lodge. We visited both lodges 5 years ago & wanted to return.

Every detail of our stay was perfect. We booked our trip rather last minute and stayed in the least expensive accommodation - which was amazing!! Ulusaba sent a questionnaire so they could appropriately fit our family with the best guide. It was spot on - we had Brandon as our ranger/guide and Jack as our tracker. It was a perfect...
