The Ulusaba Private Game Reserve, Sir Richard Branson’s beautiful award-winning luxury retreat, has revealed new offers – and it looks ultra cool we must say.
Sir Richard Branson’s Private Game Reserve is set in the heart of the Sabi Sand reserve on the border of the Kruger National Park in South Africa.
Most of its staff hail from the surrounding villages therefore guests benefit from authentic South African hospitality. The reserve promotes from within where it can, and supports the local community through charitable project, Pride ‘n Purpose.
The Ulusaba family of 119 individuals includes some of the finest and most qualified rangers and trackers in the reserve, who guarantee the experience of a lifetime on a game drive.
Ulusaba has a free night offer available for guests who book to stay between now and the 22nd December 2012; which means you can treat yourself for a little bit longer and enjoy the final night for free.
You can either book to stay for four nights for the price of three; or five nights for the price of four. Rates start from ZAR 4,750 per person per night based on double occupancy in Safari Lodge and include accommodation, all meals and drinks, twice daily game drives, all drinks (including alcoholic), as well as a team of fabulous staff.
Kids catered for too
If you’re taking a holiday and taking your pride, kids otherwise known as Cubs at Ulusaba, aged from 0 – 11 years can stay at Ulusaba’s Rock Lodge for free throughout 2012 and 2013. That’s a saving of ZAR 2,000 per child per night. Ulusaba tailors fantastic programmes for the little ones at the Cub’s club… like keeping them out of trouble for a start… Kids over the age of six can join the rest of their pride on game drives.
If you’re flying solo, as a single traveller most categories of rooms do not have the usual single traveller supplement, and in others it’s been reduced by 25%. While at Ulusaba you’ll be meeting fellow guests on the twice-daily game drives and at meal times which are mostly served in a shared, communal setting. The offer is valid for any new arrival before 10th December 2012 and rates start from ZAR 7,100 per night.
For those who fancy getting snap-happy and exploring the African bush in a truly unique way photographic safaris are also available. Aimed at amateur photographers and led by Ulusaba’s professional rangers and trackers who are also experienced photographers. They teach guests how to interpret animal behaviour so they can capture some outstanding pictures to treasure forever.
Rates for photographic safaris start from R5,500 per person per night in a Safari Room and are based on double occupancy and a minimum stay of three nights. Rates are valid for arrivals until the 22nd December 2012.
