    Wonderful staff, especially our guide and trackers. Time for some maintenance updates in the room we had however. Need to stock bourbon instead of 8 types of whiskey in the bar. Wish they hadn't done the BBQ dinner. Mostly European guests.More

    Hi I will be staying with you for five nights in April, I am wondering what the typical tips are for the staff, driver and trackers, so I can work out how much currency I need, as I once I leave Ulusaba, I have an overnight stay in Johannesburg, before flying up to Livingstone for 2 nights, then back to the UK

    Hi, we are coming to stay in June and we've read that we need to make sure our room is locked at all times as the Monkeys have learned how to undo doors and windows and can ransack rooms if they can gain access. We may want to spend some time relaxing by the pool and wondered what happens with things like Cameras, iPods, Sunscreen etc. That we might want to take to the pool with us? Are the monkeys likely to pay a visit and 'steal' our belongings from the pool side whilst we are taking a dip?

    Hi, we are coming to Ulusaba in June and our connecting flight from Ulusaba with Fedair leaves at 12:30. Can you confirm whether we will have plenty of time in the morning to go on the morning game drive and get back in time to check out of our room and get to the airstrip? Many thanks, we are counting down the days to departure, as it's now 'this year'!! We are so excited and can't wait.
