Dulini is a traditional lodge offering serious but laid-back opulence with its deep couches, beautiful gardens and verandah beneath the shade of ancient ebony and leadwood trees on the seasonal Mabrak river.
Magnificent Big Five
The property has frontage on both sides of the Sand River, meaning that game viewing is exceptional with predators and their prey attracted by the perennial water.
Excellent river traversing
Traversing is over the western sector of Sabi Sand giving 10,000 hectares of prime safari territory. Drives and guides are excellent and sightings are controlled to keep your experience exclusive.
Given the abundance of riverine territory on the property, a walk in the bush with your armed guide and tracker is an extremely rewarding experience.
Game frequents trails through the camp and along the riverbed.
A cantilevered deck overhangs a leafy Jackalberry, providing shade in the heat of the day. It is not uncommon to watch a leopard sneaking along the riverbank from this vantage point.
There is a beautiful, large pool at the end of the rope bridge.
Six exquisite thatched suites with plunge pools overlook the riverbed. They lack for nothing in comfort.
Canopies of mosquito nets and beautiful bathrooms yield a traditional safari atmosphere.
Boma & bush dinners
A boma boasts a ceiling of stars and a roaring fire as a setting for dinners, which can also be taken on the deck. Bush dinners and breakfasts wow guests.
The food is worth a detour in its own right.
The wine cellar has an extensive selection of South Africa’s finest wines. A well-equipped gym is available to work off your indulgences. A curio shop shares profits with a community trust.
