Ulusaba Private Game Reserve, owned by Sir Richard Branson as part of the Virgin Limited Edition luxury property portfolio, is set in the heart of the Sabi Sands Game Reserve. This private game reserve borders on the sprawling Kruger National Park in South Africa's Mpumalanga province and is home to an abundance of wildlife.

One of a handful of private game lodges in the Sabi Sands area, it benefits from the recent removal of fences between private reserves and the greater Kruger National Park. This creates much larger contiguous body of land available to wildlife in the area. Other than the obvious conservation benefits, this is beneficial to the private lodges which can now boast full access to a much larger variety of wildlife.

In 2007, the Nxumalo black community made a land restitution claim involving 700 km² of nature reserve land. The claimants hope to settle the claim with a joint venture between Virgin Limited Edition and the newly-registered "Nxumalo Conservation Trust".
