At the end of a day filled with exciting wildlife encounters at Ulusaba in Sabi Sands, guests return to the Safari Camp to relax at the Aroma Boma beauty treatment centre, to enjoy a game of tennis, take a swim in the refreshing swimming pool or workout in the fully equipped gym at the lodge.

The Game Reserve is made up of three different safari camps options, and they are all the epitome of luxury safari travel. While your African safari guests will stay in style and comfort in one of 3 lodges:
Ulusaba Rock Lodge
Rock Lodge features a panoramic landscape where the Drakensberg Mountain range in the far distance compliments the vast open plains of the lush Lowveld upon which the lodges luxurious rooms are situated.
Ulusaba Safari Lodge
Safari Lodge suites resemble quaint tree-houses set in the heart of the African wilderness. These stunning treehouses over incredible views of the nearby waterhole and the animals that frequent it.
Ulusaba Cliff Lodge
The Cliff Lodge has two rooms which can be booked for exclusive use. When reserved for exclusive use, a private chef and private safari drive vehicles are available for guest use.
Whether guests choose to go on a thrilling safari ride or enjoy an adventurous guided African safari game walk in the open bush, visitors have more than 10 000 acres of unspoilt African bush to enjoy virtually exclusively.
Two safari drives daily, one early in the morning and one late in the afternoon, in open 4x4 wildlife viewing safari vehicles and nature walks are available to guests staying at the lodge. The excellent wildlife viewing experience is combined with other activities such as stargazing, bird watching and moonlit bush dinners or sundowners which are weather permitting.
Early-morning walking safaris allow safari travellers to get up close to the smaller, yet just as fascinating, animals that inhabit the reserve. These bushwalks are led by the knowledgeable rangers and trackers of Ulusaba, who will show guests the unique medicinal properties of indigenous plants, teach about local beliefs and offer up fascinating animal facts.
Activities and facilities:
After a hot day in the African bush, travellers can indulge in any number of spa treatments at the Aroma Boma. Options include a hypodermic facial which uses high-frequency current to cleanse deep and hydrate the root layers of the skin and speed up cellular regeneration.
A liposome facial uses a high concentration of vitamin C and proteins to strengthen elasticity and firmness while stimulating cellular regeneration. The resident beautician also offers aromatherapy massages, manicures, pedicures and waxing. A chiropractor is also available on-site to relieve aches and pains, headaches and muscle tension.

What’s included at Ulusaba
What's included at Mont Rochelle
At Mont Rochelle:
Kids go free at Ulusaba!

Offer available for limited dates and rooms during this period

So what’s the catch?
There isn’t one that we can see! But here’s how it works…
This offer is subject to room availability and children will generally be accommodated in the same room as the parents, although some of our rooms have a separate bedroom for the children so the parents still have privacy. As long as we have a room available that can accommodate 3 to 4 people, then you are eligible for the offer.
Infants aged under 6 go free to Ulusaba anyway as they do not participate in game viewing and generally do not require a rollaway bed and as long as this is the case we will not charge for them either, even if you are bringing another 2 children with you. However, if you require a separate bed for your infant, we may count them in with other children – call us if you would like this clarified.
We have not cut back on anything! Your children can still participate as fully as they would if you had paid for them – we still include all food and drinks, they can still participate in Cub’s Club and, provided they are aged 6 years or over, they can still participate in game drives.
