Getting to Ulusaba Rock Lodge, Sabi Sands Game Reserve
The Sabi Sands adjoins the Kruger National Park along a fenceless border which allows the free movement of game in this region. Traversing over 13 500 hectares in open 4x4 safari vehicles, the lodge rangers and trackers share their vast knowledge of the surrounding wildlife as they track Big Five game - Lion, Buffalo, Leopard, Elephant and Rhino.
