Dulini Lodges, Sabi Sand Reserve

Dulini Collection of Lodges, Sabi Sand Reserve, Greater Kruger National Park, Big 5, Boutique Lodges 
South African Specials

Reputed to be one of Africa’s finest safari destinations, the Sabi Sand Game Reserve is home to Dulini. The 65 000ha Sabi Sand Reserve shares a common 50km unfenced boundary with the Kruger National Park to the east. Two perennial rivers, the Sabi and Sand Rivers sustain the diverse fauna and flora of the area, which enjoys one of the highest and most bio-diverse populations of any reserve in Africa.

Dulini speaks of a deeply personal wildlife adventure: the classic safari experience for the sophisticated traveller. Three beautiful lodges of bespoke character in idyllic riverbank settings grace the portfolio of The Dulini Collection: Dulini Lodge, Leadwood Lodge and River Lodge. The intimacy of each boutique lodge is ideally suited to indulging the safari dreams of individual adventurers; exclusive parties celebrating special occasions together; and romancing honeymooners.

With no boundary fences between the Sabi Sand and the Kruger National Park, a great diversity of wildlife is found here, including the Big Five: lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino.

Game drives traverse an area of 10 000 hectares (24 700 acres) and strict vehicle limits at sightings ensure the exclusivity of your game viewing experience. Off-road driving enables the best possible view of any exceptional sighting and rangers are constantly in touch with each other to keep track of animal movements. With the teeming biodiversity of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve 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 ensure your vivid and exhilarating wildlife encounter.

DULINI LODGE
Beneath the shade of ancient Ebony and Leadwood trees, the tranquil haven of Dulini is enigmatically embraced by its rich riverine setting. There is a restorative quality to the peaceful atmosphere of the camp, on the banks of the Mabrak River. The symphony of bird song and the passage of wildlife add to the allure of Dulini.

The main lodge, resplendent with deep couches and contemporary African accents spills onto the cool veranda, offers 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.

Six exquisite thatched suites grace the banks of the riverbed. The spacious accommodation with private plunge pools and interiors that epitomise romance, with canopies of mosquito nets and beautiful bathrooms. Each suite offers a private view of the riverbed, seamlessly integrating the grandeur of nature and elegance of décor.

DULINI LEADWOOD LODGE
Much like the giant trees after which it is named, Dulini Leadwood takes deep root in the heart of all those who linger here. This is the ultimate safari choice for the discerning traveler in search of exclusive solitude.

Tucked secretively in the confluence of the Sand and Mabrak Rivers, Dulini Leadwood offers intimate and serene solace in a lodge that is completely at peace with its verdant setting.

Four exclusive suites whisper of lavish luxury: an idyllic honeymoon setting as well as an appealing venue for soirees of friends and families who relish exclusivity.

With alluring views over the granite boulders of the Sand River, each suite is stylishly appointed in contemporary style with every creature comfort imaginable.

DULINI RIVER LODGE
Embraced in the riverine grandeur of the languid Sand River, Dulini River offers inspirational views and an awe- inspiring atmosphere. The serenity of the setting is reflected in elemental tones and textures of six magnificent suites, which emerge from the banks of the river. Peace and tranquility abound.

Guests are enthralled by the passage of game and rich birdlife that meander with the river along their view from the open dining deck and sumptuous lounge. The cascade of water infuses the air with the energy of the river, also reflected in the natural hues and aqua accents of the beautiful lodge.
