Ulusaba says

We have come up with some fabulous ideas in an incredible setting for an intimate honeymoon escape to the African Bush – think exquisite accommodation, glorious game viewing and excellent service. The romantic Ulusaba experience promises to be ‘Heaven on Earth’.

  • Spectacular setting
  • Ultimate luxury
  • Wildlife encounters

Ulusaba has two separate lodges, Rock Lodge and Safari Lodge, and each offers a unique perspective on the bush.

Safari Lodge is situated next to a watering hole with many rooms built tree-house style and accessed by rope bridges. The Treehouse Suite is particularly special, overlooking a nearby dam where the hippos come to wallow and play.

Rock Lodge is built on top of a koppie, or hill, and has spectacular panoramic views over mile upon mile of bush. The Cliff Lodge has its own pool and vast viewing terraces.

With twice-daily game drives to spot the Big Five, daily safari walks, two pools, an Aroma Boma spa, tennis courts and a full stocked wine cellar, Ulusaba is the ultimate honeymoon destination.

Our three-night Romance Package includes all food and beverages including unlimited French champagne, all game viewing, a fruit basket and champagne in your room on arrival, a couple’s spa treatment, a private dinner on the last evening complete with own personal butler and a room upgrade (subject to availability). It costs from approximately £2,220 per couple excluding flights.
