About Us Sir Richard Branson's Private Game Reserve is set in the heart of the Sabi Sand reserve on the border of the Kruger National Park in South Africa. Most of our staff hail from the surrounding villages therefore guests benefit from authentic South African hospitality. We promote from within where we can, and support the local community through our charitable project, Pride 'n Purpose. The Ulusaba family of 119 individuals includes some of the finest and most qualified rangers and trackers in the reserve, who guarantee the experience of a lifetime on game drive. We delight in going the extra mile for all our guests! Ulusaba is part of Virgin Limited Edition, Sir Richard Branson's portfolio of unique retreats. WHERE IS ULUSABA? Ulusaba Private Game Reserve is located in the western sector of the Sabi Sand Reserve near Kruger National Park in the Mpumalanga province of South Africa. It’s approximately one hour 20 minutes by twin-engine aircraft to the Ulusaba airstrip from Johannesburg International Airport (also known as O.R. Tambo Airport) and 30 minutes from Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport (KMIA) in Nelspruit. Fly Virgin Atlantic Airways via London to Johannesburg or direct from the US East Coast with other carriers.
Ulusaba has two beautiful lodges just five minutes’ drive from each other. Rock Lodge is on the summit of a koppie set against the backdrop of the Drakensberg Mountain range far in the distance. Rock Lodge includes the exclusive two bedroom Cliff Lodge and can accommodate a total of 20 – 25 guests in its 10 rooms and suites. Safari Lodge is built along the banks of the dry Mabrak riverbed. Guests will love the sense of adventure as they cross the rope swing bridges between exquisite tree house rooms, created and inspired by local and natural materials, with elephants, bushbucks, lions and other local wildlife passing by. Safari Lodge can accommodate 22 guests in its 11 rooms.
