Bringing the very best of a safari experience live to your homes

7th April 2020

Be one of the first to see Ulusaba’s new Leopard Cubs

The doors to Ulusaba Private Game Reserve in the Sabi Sand, South Africa may well be temporarily closed right now, but the incredible safari experience it is renowned for, is most certainly not.

The luxury private game reserve that forms part of the Virgin Limited Edition collection of unique retreats around the world sits in the heart of the African bush; but unlike nearly everything else in the world right now, it is very much a normal day for all the local wildlife that surround it.

For all of us at home, an African safari and being up close and personal to some of the big five, is something we can only dream of right now. However, Virgin Limited Edition is planning on bringing alive the magic of the bush to you in a series of Instagram Live game drives.

Ulusaba’s Rangers and Trackers are some of the very best in the world and while life as they know it might not be entirely normal for them right now, the welfare of the wildlife in the reserve is still their number one priority. Observing, protecting and researching the daily habits of the reserve’s wildlife is still as much a part of their daily routine and they want to share these experiences with the world.

The thrill of a game drive is never knowing what might appear around the corner and in this series of live videos, the Ranger’s will endeavour to bring the very best of safari to your sofa. So whether it’s the reserve’s resident lion pride, an elephant calf and its family or the very first views of two new leopard cubs hidden in their den, this Instagram Live from Virgin Limited Edition will certainly give a real-time authentic experience from one of South Africa’s most renowned safari lodges.

When: Every Monday at 3:30pm for the next four weeks (starting Monday 13 April 2020)

Where: Instagram - @VirginLimitedEdition

Hashtag: #Travelfromhome #Sofasafari

The videos will be a first from Virgin Limited Edition that will showcase a series of live videos and inspirational ideas from across its properties, that will inspire and allow us to still dream of travelling.
