Getting up close to an African elephant is a humbling experience, from their rough sandpapery skin (which is surprisingly hairy!) to their long eyelashes and their unique personalities – and now is the perfect time of year to see them, and their baby calves, at Ulusaba.
Through the work that Ulusaba, the other lodges within the Sabi Sand Game Reserve and the anti-poaching efforts have put towards conservation the elephant population is thriving.
Ulusaba sees the results of the Conservation efforts and the lodges location makes it a fantastic nursey for baby elephants, and with female elephants pregnant on average for 22 months, there’s new arrivals all year round.
These majestic creatures can be seen with their calves cooling off in the riverbed and chomping through the lush vegetation, as well as enjoying a cheeky drink from the plunge pools at Safari Lodge.
Witnessing these gentle giants and their new baby calves at Ulusaba is the ultimate #VLEtravels WITH PURPOSE adventure and with twice daily game drives with our expert guides and trackers know just where to spot the elephants as well lions, leopards, rhinoceros, buffalo and much more.
Guests staying at Ulusaba contribute to the Sabi Sand Conservation Trust which assists in funding our anti-poaching and conservation efforts to secure the long-term survival of endangered and compromised animals, so guests staying at Ulusaba really are traveling with purpose!
