Ulusaba: A Cub's Club with extra bite

For parents, it's always a challenge to decide where to take the kids on holiday. Is there going to be enough to keep my little ones entertained throughout the day? Do they have enough food options for my fussy eater? At Ulusaba, children of all ages are very welcome to stay at Rock Lodge and Cliff Lodge all year round, making us one of the most popular family-friendly destinations in the Sabi-Sand.

One of the main reasons why Ulusaba is the perfect family place to stay is our Cub's Club that promises to keep your under-12s entertained. From the moment they arrive, they'll receive a backpack filled with educational safari goodies and cap to make this the best African Adventure a child (or cub) could wish for.

Cubs doing what they do best - exploring!

In Cub's Club, there is no set itinerary, so your little cubs can decide each day what they feel like doing. Whatever your cub's style, we have got it covered. If they are after the taste of adventure, how about a mini-Ranger's course where one of our very own Rangers will teach them about the African Bush and how to track and identify animal footprints and droppings. We can arrange special cub-friendly safari walks around Rock Lodge to spot birds, insects, lizards and other small critters you are likely to spot during a mini-expedition. Children aged six or over are also more than welcome on the safari game drives.

If they want to cool off after a wild morning exploring, cubs are able to enjoy the swimming pool with an experienced swimmer to supervise afternoon pool activities, followed by ice-cream to re-energise. Other activities include special arts and craft rock painting sessions, learning traditional South African kids' games, special cub-friendly spa treatments or maybe they want to try their hand at being a safari master chef and create their own homemade pizzas or cupcakes. This is just a taste of the fun activities we have to offer, and our staff are willing go that extra mile in order to keep all cubs grinning from ear-to-ear.

Ready for a dip?

At the end of the day, when your little cub is ready to turn in for the night, special bedtime story-telling complete with milk and cookies is available. Parents, if you fancy a night off, you will be pleased to hear a babysitting service is available at no extra charge!

To make your stay even sweeter, throughout 2016, kids go freewith all bookings to Ulusaba! This is a massive saving of ZAR 2,200 per child, per night! If you would like any more information about booking your next family vacation, our reservations team are always here to help.
