With summer near, it’s time to plan out the holidays and travel with your partner, children, or friends. Leisure travel doesn’t have to be weeks of endlessly lying on a beach, it can be more fun filled and action packed. Adventure travel doesn’t get better than a safari in South Africa. Surely it’s an adventure travel plan on everyone’s “Bucket List” and maybe this year it’s time to tick it off your list.
For a safari that will leave you speechless, you must travel to Ulusaba, which is Sir Richard Branson’s privately owned game reserve, deep in the Kruger National Park. Travel in style to this location and watch from your light aircraft, the breath-taking views as you touchdown on Ulubasa’s private landing strip. The adventure travel begins here! Our travel guide will help you acquire travel information regarding this beautiful location and what it has to offer.
The 66,000 hectares of park boasts two luxurious travel lodges. Rock Lodge is perched 800ft above the African Savannah and is the more chic of the two travel lodges. Inside this travel lodge, there are eight rooms and you will enjoy five star luxury balanced with a warm family life atmosphere. If you’re honeymooning, then you’ll love the Makwela Suites complete with infinity pools on each deck ‘aaah now that’s leisure travel at its best.
Safari Lodge is great if you prefer an adventure travel experience to be more down to earth. This travel lodge is built in the heart of the bush and all suites and rooms are traditional thatched, tree house style. The fun part about this travel lodge is that all rooms are accessible by Indiana Jones- esque swing bridges! Now that’s adventure travel for you.
You haven’t gone all the way to South Africa to lounge in the travel lodge! So, let’s tell you about the adventure travel side of things. Guests are given a professional travel guide and a tracker from the local tribe, who will take you on early morning and early evening safari drives. You will enjoy this exhilarating experience in open-sided 4×4’s. Your travel through this remarkable area will blow you away when you see variety in wildlife around you. This includes lions, elephants, leopards, giraffes, zebra’s, rhino’s and hippos.
With Richard Branson’s name attached to this adventure travel location, you can be sure to be treated exceptionally well. Champagne bonfires or a luxurious meal for two out in the bush is easy for them to do! Safari in style!
