Who says romance is dead? At Ulusaba we see it every day, and not just from our human guests. The elephants who roam the Sabi Sand Reserve are often spotted cuddling each other, and when something the size of an elephant gets amorous, you’re advised to keep your distance!
A stay at Ulusaba can give you the space you and your partner need to ignite (or re-ignite!) the magic, and we’ve got some great suggestions and ideas for an intimate and private escape in the African bush. Whether you’re on honeymoon or just fancy a romantic break, there are only 21 rooms and suites at Ulusaba split over two lodges, so finding some time alone won’t be a problem.
Nothing gets past our experienced Rangers and Trackers on the twice daily game drives (well, mostly!). There are 13,500 hectares of space to cover, but our Trackers are experts at reading animal tracks, noticing disturbed areas of the bush, and using their sixth sense to take you right to the action. While you’re busy snapping away with your camera, our Rangers will be on hand with interesting facts and stories.
From delicious spreads at breakfast to evening banquets, dining at Ulusaba is designed to cater to your personal tastes. Early morning starts are the norm to catch some of the animals at their most active, so most people stick to coffee, fresh fruit and muffins and indulge when they get back to the lodges. A pre-booked massage treatment or refreshing swim is a great way to build an appetite for our lighter à la carte style lunches, followed by a well-deserved nap. Evening meals at the lodges tend to be a communal affair, but as you’re here to spend some time with each other, we have a few other ideas...
You’re unlikely to run out of things to do at Ulusaba, but we do recommend indulging in a few spa treatments during your stay, and so as part of our romance offer for couples we’ve come up with some suggestions below:
