Dear AnthonyVNYC1021, Thank you so much for including Ulusaba and Mont Rochelle in your glowing review. To know that we were able to play a part in making your trip to South Africa so memorable is simply wonderful – and we feel very privileged that you were able to visit two of our very special retreats. We like to think our team of rangers and trackers are some of the best in the world, but it’s always so rewarding for them to hear such fantastic feedback from our guests, so thank you. We’ll be sure to pass on your fantastic review of Mont Rochelle to the team there and we know that they’ll be thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your stay with them seeing in the New Year. We hope you’ll both make another trip back to see us in the future. Have a magic day, Karl & Llané Langdon General Managers karl@ulusaba.virgin.com

Dear JimandColette, Firstly thank you for coming to stay with us again at Ulusaba! What’s even better is to hear that you had another fantastic stay with us and we’re so glad you’ve now been able to experience both lodges. I’ve passed your lovely feedback to all of the team members and they were delighted to hear that they were able to play a part in making your stay so special. Now all you need to do is decide when you’re going to visit us again and which lodge to stay in, perhaps a split stay at both of them! We hope we get the opportunity to make it a hat trick and welcome you back one day. Have a magic day, Karl & Llané Langdon General Managers karl@ulusaba.virgin.com

Dear ocsky, I don’t think we could ask for a bigger compliment than hearing that you think Ulusaba is ‘the best safari lodge’ – thank you! The whole team were delighted to read your review and hear how much you enjoyed your stay. We were particularly pleased to hear your kind comments about the service and that you felt as though every need was taken care of. We might be biased but we have to agree that we have an amazing nature view, so it’s always so special to hear from our guests that think the service lives up to it! We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back to the Bush one day in the future. Have a magic day, Karl & Llané Langdon General Managers karl@ulusaba.virgin.com

"All rooms are superb"
"Micato Safari Best Outfitters"
"Choose a River Room with plunge pool if you're fond of elephants and monkeys..."
"All the rooms are great and face out into the wild but we had a plunge pool that felt very nice to jump in after the game rides."
