Tucked away in the lush confluence of the Mabrak and Sand Rivers inside South Africa's game-rich Sabi Sand Game Reserve, this exclusive, luxury lodge has four elegant contemporary suites which make it a perfect honeymoon and intimate getaway destination

Main lodge

The main lodge is an intimate space which walks onto a treehouse deck and swimming pool overlooking the Sand River. Meals are either served here on the deck alfresco or in the boma under the African stars. There is also a well-stocked wine cellar.

Exclusive luxury

Each spacious and luxurious air-conditioned suite is distanced well apart so guests can enjoy maximum privacy. They all have a fireplace, a sitting room with a minibar and tea- and coffee-making facilities, an en-suite bathroom, an outdoor shower and a private deck with a plunge pool. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide uninterrupted views of the African bush and riverbed beyond where animals gather in the dry season.

Wonderful game viewing in open vehicles

The Dulini Leadwood Lodge game viewing experience is as exclusive as the accommodation. With a maximum of only six guests on the open safari vehicle permitted, the passengers can enjoy the undivided attention of their safari guide and tracker as they discover the incredible wildlife in the Greater Kruger. Particularly well-known for its leopard sightings, you can expect to see elephant, white rhino, lion and other species in the Sabi Sand. All game drives include a refreshment stop and for those who are interested, bushwalks and night drives can also be arranged.

A guided safari in Kruger Park (using the national park camps) is quite different to a safari at a private game lodge. Both have their advantages. This trip idea combines two nights in Kruger, followed by two nights at a private game lodge for you to experience the best of both worlds. All game drives in open vehicles with expert and knowledgeable guides.

Sabi Sand Game Reserve
Greater Kruger Park

Bordering Kruger National Park, the Sabi Sand Game Reserve is a collection of privately-owned game reserves which have dropped their fences by mutual agreement. There is also no fence between the Sabi Sand Game Reserve and Kruger, allowing the free movement of animals through the reserve. Sabi Sand is without a doubt South Africa's top luxury safari destination and the best place in the world to see leopards in the wild.
