Airstrip Administrator - Ulusaba

Ulusaba is a safari Lodge located in South Africa on the edge of Kruger National Park in Sabi Sands. Ulusaba has two magnificent Lodges: Rock Lodge is perched high on the summit of a koppie (rocky hill) and has 9 rooms whilst 0.5km away, Safari Lodge is built along the banks of the dry Mabrak riverbed and has 11 rooms. Many guests choose to split their stay between both Lodges. We have recently added a new addition to our Portfolio, Cliff Lodge. This is Sir Richard Branson’s private residence but can also be sold commercially. Guests can book individual rooms or exclusively hire individual Lodges or the hotel as a whole - ideal for weddings and celebrations.

Ulusaba is an excellent place to observe the ‘Big Five’ – buffalo, rhinoceros, elephant, lion and leopard.
