Ubizane Safari Lodge is set in the heart of the 1,500 hectare Ubizane Wildlife Reserve, which boasts a variety of game, including white rhino, giraffe, wildebeest, zebra, most species of antelope, and over 350 species of birdlife. Adjacent to Ubizane Wildlife Reserve is the renowned Hluhluwe Umfolozi Game Reserve, the oldest in Africa, where the Big 5 roam the bush.
Daily afternoon excursions into the Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Game Reserve in open game viewing vehicles offer guests the opportunity of viewing a wide assortment of African wildlife including the Big 5, whilst morning game drives are done on the Ubizane Wildlife Reserve itself.
Those looking to get really close to nature can embark on foot with a trained game ranger to see the wonders of the African bush close up. The foot safaris are ideal for all and give guests the opportunity of truly experiencing the African bush.
The horseback safaris in a neighbouring wildlife reserve (additional cost) add a whole new dimension to game viewing. The wildlife are totally at ease with the horses and guests have an opportunity of getting close up to the game.
The lodge offers comfortable accommodation in 24 comfortable thatched rondavels looking up at the sweep of Ubizane Mountain. The chalets each have a fully equipped kitchen and all bedrooms are en-suite with ceiling fans.
Families will love the relaxed atmosphere of this traditional African reserve with its dining boma, and swimming pool for those sweltering Zululand days.
