We stayed at the rock lodge for two days after spending two days at Lion Sands River Lodge. The whole "Virgin Limited" experience was flawless from beginning to end. Our greeting at the Rock Lodge was enthusiastic and warm. Sandra ensured that we were immediately familiar with all of the amenities and facilities. The Rock Cliff rooms have beautiful views...

Ulusaba is on top of the hill and beautifully situated. The living spaces are gorgeous with the 360 view and a magnificent bar. Very good staff, and lovely pool. Rock Cliff rooms are a little dated and need an upgrade - more contemporary, modern edge that competes with other 5 star lodges in the area. Food was good but quite...

When we arrived at Ulusaba Rock Lodge from Ulusaba airport, all six of us were immediately gobsmacked by the whole experience. We all had the same reaction: we just stood there and said "wow." Literally just "wow". My wife and I stayed in the Master Suite, whilst the other four stayed in two Rock Cliff rooms. All rooms were great,...

Spent 5 nights there with the family. To be balanced, some nit-picking. The location is at the edge of the reserve, so looking out to your left you can see towns in the distance. The rest of the views are spectacular. The rooms are okay, but nothing special. The two rooms we had looked a bit tired. Beyond that everything...

Everything about this experience will change your life. The Rangers, the service people, the safari drives, and the local community tours are truly unbelievable. I was only at the lodge for three days, i wish that i had dedicated more time to it. I will be returning with my children as soon as possible.
