Game drives and bush walks in the Sabi Sand Reserve take precedence over most other activities, no two game drives are ever the same.
There are two daily game drives at Ulusaba, one leaving early in the morning and one leaving late afternoon, each lasting around three hours. Keep a look out for the Big 5, giraffes, zebra, and hippo that frequent this region. You can even rent camera equipment at this luxury accommodation, or head out on a safari walk with your ranger and tracker. This is an opportunity to see smaller creatures that are often overlooked when you’re out on a drive.
Wine Tasting and Private Dinner
Beneath the main lounge at Rock Lodge is the wine lounge, showcasing the wide variety of vintages from South Africa and beyond. If you are feeling particularly romantic, you can request a private dinner in this secluded space.
Relax and unwind after the excitement of a game drive with a spa treatment at the Aroma Boma. This luxury accommodation in the Sabi Sands Reserve offers a whole range of treatments, from facials and massages through to those essential grooming rituals.
At Ulusaba Rock Lodge, children can take part in the Cub's Club where various child-friendly activities are organised. A backpack of goodies helps keep the kids busy, but most popular are the educational safaris with a ranger who shows them how to track animals and how to survive in the bush.
The village tour looks into some of the charitable projects and schemes Ulusaba is actively involved in. The Community Tours and Excursions are organised by Pride ‘n Purpose, Ulusaba’s charitable organisation. The basic philosophy behind its work is the principle of empowering people to help themselves while promoting sustainable development.
All of Pride ’n Purposes’ expenses are funded by Ulusaba and Virgin Unite, the group’s entrepreneurial foundation. All money raised through those tours goes to the local communities.
Full Day Excursions
This is a full day out on the famed ‘Panorama Route’ along the Drakensberg Escarpment. This tour features visits to the Victorian Town of Pilgrim's Rest, the infamous Robber’s Grave, Blyde River Canyon, The Three Rondavels, God’s Window, Bourke’s Luck Potholes and Lisbon Waterfalls. You’ll get up close and personal with some of the region’s natural beauty and learn about the history of the area’s first pioneers. Lunch is enjoyed at Harry’s Original Pancake Restaurant in Graskop where pancakes and fresh salads are served.
