Ulusaba means “place of little fear”. That is because the kopje where the Rock Lodge sits provided the ancient Shangaan warriors with the perfect look out point. Spend time at the Rock Lodge and you will be flying with the eagles or take a walk on the wild side back down to the Earth at Safari Lodge.
Rock Lodge has the best view in the Sabi Sand. The Lodge is perched high on the summit of a koppie, with panoramic vistas over miles of bush. Within Rock Lodge is Cliff Lodge a 2 bedroom suite, perfect for some added privacy. Both Rock and Cliff Lodge are ideal for families with children of all ages who are welcome to join the Cub’s Club.
The view inside is just as spectacular and the granite rock of the koppie is a key feature of the main house’s design and each room has a different design reflecting African tribal influences and style.
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.
The Safari Lodge is built along the banks of the dry Mabrak riverbed and some of the rooms are built ‘tree house’ style. Guests will get the feeling of being in the heart of life in the bush.
The rooms provide fascinating viewing of the animals as they stroll past on their way to the nearby watering hole.
Safari Lodge fits snugly into the bush located beneath a canopy of ancient trees on the edge of a dry riverbed.
Some of the rooms offer excitement with access by swing bridges.
The 11 rooms at Safari Lodge include a Treehouse Suite overlooking the nearby Xikwenga Dam as well as three other room types: Safari, Elephant and River Rooms, some of which have private plunge pools. Kids over the age of 12 are welcome to stay at Safari Lodge.
