The African Bush - just the thought of it conjures up some fascinating images of breath-taking wilderness, sunrise safaris and a retreat far away from the city. Here your imagination becomes reality. I hope someday we’ll be able to share this with you.Sir Richard Branson
Getting to know Ulusaba
Ulusaba means “place of little fear”. That’s because the koppie where Rock Lodge sits provided the ancient Shangaan warriors with the perfect lookout point. Spend time at Rock Lodge and you’ll be flying with the eagles, or take a walk on the wild side back down to earth at Safari Lodge.
Travelling with children to South Africa
From 1 June 2015 there are some changes to South Africa’s immigration rules. This will affect everyone who has children 18 years and under when travelling to or from South Africa (with or without their parents or guardians). The requirements apply regardless of nationality. In order to be allowed to travel, customers impacted by this change must bring the necessary paperwork when travelling.

Rock Lodge has the best view in the Sabi Sand – and we promise we’re not biased! Perched high on the summit of a koppie, with panoramic views over miles of bush, grab a pair of binoculars to see what you can spot. Within Rock Lodge is Cliff Lodge a two bedroom suite, perfect for some added privacy. Both Rock and Cliff Lodge are ideal for families with children of all ages who are welcome to join our Cub’s Club.
Safari Lodge is built along the banks of the dry Mabrak riverbed and some of the rooms are built ‘tree house’ style and you really get the feeling of being in the heart of life in the bush. Your room will provide fascinating views of the animals as they stroll past on their way to the nearby watering hole.
