Rock Lodge is perched high on the summit of a koppie (rocky outcrop) with views over the vast lowveld and the distant Drakensberg Mountain range.
There are ten rooms and suites individually designed with the colours denoting a different African tribe or region. These include four Rock Cliff rooms, one Master Suite, two Makwela Suites with private infinity plunge pools and one two-bedroom Rock Suite.
Located a short walk from the Main House at Rock Lodge, features two magnificent suites offering guests the ultimate in safari luxury. Cliff Lodge 1 has a private pool and a second bedroom for one adult or two children, and Cliff Lodge 2 has its own Jacuzzi with stunning views over the bush. When you hire both suites for exclusive use your own chef and private vehicle for game drives is included. Cliff Lodge can accommodate a maximum of 5 adults and 4 children when booked exclusively.
There are twice daily game drives included in all guest stays. In addition to this, guests can take game walks, stargaze in the Bush Observatory, indulge in a spa treatment, visit the gym, enjoy private dinners, make the most of the wine cellar and much more. Alternatively, guests can visit the local community (supported by Pride n’ Purpose Ulusaba’s charitable arm).
Children are taken seriously at Ulusaba. The ‘Ulusaba Cub’s Club’ invites kids or cubs, as we like to call them, of all ages to take part in the activities on offer at Rock Lodge. Children under 12 accommodated at Rock Lodge only and only those aged 6 or more can go out on game drives.
On arrival at Ulusaba, all Cubs are given a backpack full of goodies to keep them entertained and to help educate them about the African bush. Some of the activities include treasure hunts supervised by the Rangers where Cubs will learn about direction and map reading and familiarise themselves with the plants, trees, animals and their tracks. Following each completed task, badges will be awarded and framed by their very own home made wooden frame which they will make from the products found in the bush. For the more creative souls, various craft sessions can be arranged and for the Ray Mears types, survival instruction, such as finding water and bait for fishing can be taught.
