Covering 10 000 hectares of pristine bushveld, Dulini Private Game Reserve is set along the banks of the Mabrak river in the well-loved Sabi Sand Reserve adjacent to the Kruger National Park. This luxurious SA safari destination exceeds expectations time and time again.

Lodge Review: Dulini Lodge, Dulini Private Game Reserve

Each day begins with a delicious breakfast and an early day game drive. Your professional trackers and guides will be on the lookout for the best game sightings, guaranteed. Vehicles only carry six passengers at a time, making this a highly personal safari experience, with possibilities for off-road meandering if necessary.

Lodge Review: Dulini Lodge, Dulini Private Game Reserve

You can expect contemporary and relaxed African-inspired decor and food. In addition to the comfortable thatched main lodge, guests have the option of staying at one of six private suites with a private balcony overlooking the river bed. Enjoy the lush bushveld of Jackalberry, Leadwood and ebony trees as you view the comings and goings of wildlife from the comfort of the viewing deck. It is not uncommon to see leopards stalking their way across the deck on the hunt for prey.

Dining is fantastic and tasty, contemporary African cuisine reflects the ambiance of the lodge. You’ll dine communally around a blazing fire each evening, sampling world-class wines from the cellar and romantic, candle-lit dinners on request. For the fit and active, there is a fully-equipped gym available. Do a little shopping in your free time at the Safari Shop, filled to the brim with locally produced items, 50% of all profits go to the esiDulini Community Trust.

“There are not enough stars to give for our experience at Dulini. The accommodations are amazing, the food incredible, the wildlife viewing spectacular – but what made our stay the most special was the staff.
