Dulini consistently ranks amongst the best of the Sabi Sand Lodges - it is currently #1 in TripAdvisor, for example. It is a family-run Lodge, and the owners' passion shines through in the atmosphere and the great attention to every detail of your stay. The Lodge is fantastically located and excellent game viewing abounds.

Exterior of a Dulini Lodge Suite Huge Suites are standard at Dulini Lodge

Dulini's six exquisite thatched Suites grace the banks of the Mabrak River beneath the shade of ancient ebony and leadwood trees. Each Suite has an unfettered view of the riverbed, seamlessly integrating the grandeur of nature with the elegance of the décor. The spacious accommodation includes private heated plunge pools with interiors that epitomise romance, canopied in mosquito nets and offering beautiful bathrooms. They are vast in size; all amenities are there and a butler keeps your minibar stocked with home made fudge twice a day.

Opt for Suite Eight if you get the chance

Dulini's Main Lodge, resplendent with deep couches and contemporary African accents spills onto the cool veranda and pool area, with views to the wilderness beyond. A welcoming ambience of laid back luxury creates a place of conversation and laughter, while the extensive library of books accommodates those more inclined to quieter contemplation. Here you will find the dining Sala/ boma, wine cellar, and a well-equipped gym, along with a safari shop.

Dulini deck, early morning

The traffic of game frequenting the trails through and beyond the camp and riverbed may be enjoyed from the cantilevered viewing deck tented by a leafy Jackalberry. It is not uncommon to secretly witness the passage of an elusive leopard from this vantage point. The deck also offers an alternative venue for enjoying the rich fare at meal times; nevertheless you should also take advantage of the opportunity to take your dinner in the bush.

Dulini Lodge bush dinner

Dulini traverses 10,000 hectares (25,000 acres) of pristine wilderness in the comfort of six seat open Land Rovers (many Lodges use 9/10 seaters). With the teeming biodiversity of the Sabi Sand and the skilled interpretation of bush signs by astute Shangaan trackers, no two Game Drives are ever the same. Trackers and Rangers partner in looking for fresh animal tracks and sensitively follow elusive animals into ravines and through thicket to produce for you vivid and exhilarating wildlife encounters.
