Virgin Limited Edition: Ulusaba to Launch Brand New Suite.
Spend time at Rock Lodge and you’ll be flying with the eagles, or take a walk on the wild side back down to earth at Safari Lodge.
Virgin Limited Edition, the award-winning collection of unique retreats chosen for their beautiful locations and magnificent surroundings, announced that Ulusaba Private Game Reserve will welcome guests to a brand new Safari Suite in June 2018, following a period of refurbishment.
The spacious new suite will accommodate two guests and comes complete with a private plunge pool and garden, separate lounge and large outdoor deck offering views of the Mabrak riverbed, bush and beyond.
Ulusaba means “place of little fear”. That’s because the koppie where Rock Lodge sits provided the ancient Shangaan warriors with the perfect lookout point.
That’s not all as Ulusaba will also be opening a larger and newly refurbished Safari Room, for two people.
The Safari Suite and Safari Room can be interconnected and will be available on an exclusive use basis for up to four people. These spaces can be interconnected and will be available on an exclusive use basis for up to four people.

“The African Bush – just the thought of it conjures up some fascinating images of breath-taking wilderness, sunrise safaris and a retreat far away from the city. Here your imagination becomes reality. I hope someday we’ll be able to share this with you,” said Sir Richard Branson.
Ulusaba has 21 rooms and suites spread over two lodges: Rock Lodge, including the beautiful Cliff Lodge, and Safari Lodge.
Rock Lodge is perched on the top of a koppie with panoramic views over the bush below. There are 8 rooms at Rock Lodge, including our Master Suite, Makwela Suites, Rock Cliff rooms and the two bedroom Rock Suite, some of which have private plunge pools. Just a short walk from the main house is Cliff Lodge, a private two bedroom suite.
Nearly 500 metres away is Safari Lodge which has 11 rooms, including our Safari Rooms, Elephant Rooms, River Rooms and the private Treehouse Suite. Built along the banks of a dry riverbed, Safari Lodge guests cross swing bridges between the exquisite tree house style rooms. For the ultimate experience, guests can share their time between both lodges.
