We came here last month for part of our honeymoon and WOW, was it spectacular! We knew it would be an amazing experience and wanted to cross it off our bucket list, but we already want to come back again, and hopefully soon! When you initially see the cost, you think it might be a bit pricey, but then when...

We have traveled to the Amazon, Machu Picchu, Galapagos Islands, and other fantastic locations, but, Ulusaba was special. The rooms (Elephant Room), staff, and food are all first class. The setting is fantastic with an abundance of wildlife around the lodge. The game drives are definitely the highlight, especially when you get to see a Cheetah kill an antelope. Our...

A place every living being needs to visit. It will be life changing!!! the food was to die for. The staff were unbelievable and the safari adventures took your breath away. To see the wildlife in its natural habitat was surreal. I hope that someday, I can take my boys to experience this thrill of a lifetime.

I have to confess the difficulty of reviewing this hotel, since I feel that 5* is not enough to rate this experience. This is much more than an Hotel/Lodge.
