Kruger National Park, South Africa
Found up high on the summit of a koppie in Ulusaba Private Game Reserve, Rock Lodge is one of Richard Branson’s stunning lodges found within Sabi Sand Reserve. With endless panoramic views of the African landscape and luxurious interiors, this is certainly the place to really indulge.
There are eight rooms and suites altogether, all decorated with natural wooden materials and bright pops of colour. The four Rock Cliff Rooms have a private balcony overlooking the Sabi Sands, whilst the two-bedroom Master Suite is perfect for small families. The Master Suite is ideal for honeymooners with its three romantic levels featuring a private balcony with an infinity plunge pool and a living area with another furnished terrace, and the two Makwela Suites are the most indulgent with their private balconies, infinity edge pool, living area, study and library.
Emerge from your luxurious yet cosy room or suite and you’ll find a beautiful rock pool overlooking the verdant bush. Our favourite part of the lodge has to be the welcoming main lounge – watching a movie on the big screen is a fantastic way to relax after a day of exciting yet exhausting game drives. The granite rock of the koppie is the main focal point of the main house too, creating a natural vibe.
Rock Lodge is brilliant for families. Many of the rooms and lodges can cater for a small family, and the Ulusaba Cubs Club is a great way to children to meet others and learn about the bush, whether they’re tackling a treasure hunt, or learning how to cook an authentic African meal. Whilst the kids enjoy exciting activities, the wine lounge is great for couples looking to partake in some delicious South African wine tasting.
