A Safari Experience Live To Your Home

Virgin Limited Edition (VLE) – a collection of unique retreats around the world – is set to bring the magic of bushland South Africa straight to your lounge.

As Coronavirus lockdown continues with little sign of immediate respite, Ulusaba Private Game Reserve in the Sabi Sand, South Africa – part of the VLE collection – will soon become the focus for thousands of people.

The doors to Ulusaba may well be temporarily closed but the incredible safari experience it is renowned for, is most certainly not.

The reserve sits in the heart of the African bush but unlike nearly everything else in the world right now, life there remains relatively normal for local wildlife.

And to prove that’s still the case Virgin Limited Edition is planning on bringing alive the magic of the bush in a series of Instagram Live game drives.

Ulusaba’s Rangers and Trackers are some of the best in the world and while life as they know it might not be entirely normal right now, the welfare of the wildlife in the reserve remains their number one priority.

Observing, protecting and researching the daily habits of the reserve’s wildlife is still a key part of their daily routine and they want to continue sharing these experiences with the world.

The thrill of a game drive is never knowing what might appear around the corner and in this series of live videos, the Ranger’s will endeavour to bring the very best of safari to your sofa.

So, whether it’s the reserve’s resident lion pride, an elephant calf and its family or the very first views of two new leopard cubs hidden in their den, this Instagram Live from Virgin Limited Edition will certainly give a real-time authentic experience from one of South Africa’s most renowned safari lodges.

When: Every Monday at 3:30pm for the next three weeks (starting this afternoon Monday 20 April 2020)
Where: Instagram - @VirginLimitedEdition
Hashtag: #Travelfromhome #Sofasafari

The videos will be a first from Virgin Limited Edition that will showcase a series of live videos and inspirational ideas from across its properties, that will inspire and keep the dream of travelling alive!
