Things to do

You can do as little or as much as you want in Ulusaba- it’s completely up to you. Game drives can be organised, either a morning or evening drive (or both!) where you can discover and experience the amazing African bush. For those seeking more adventure you can get up close and personal with the animals during our walking safari. It also wouldn’t be a holiday if you didn’t have a bit of R&R- we recommend any of the spa treatments in the Aroma Borna spa from facial rituals to massages and essential grooming.


Ulusaba Private Game Reserve is located in the western sector of Sabi Sand Reserve, near Kruger National Park in the Mpumalanga province of South Africa. You can get here from Johannesburg International Airport in approximately 1 hour and 20 minute twin-engine flight, or 30 minutes from Nelspruit and 20 minutes from Skukuza, via a charter air hop.
