This luxury lodge offers elegant, serene accommodation within a rich wilderness area that is the Sabi Sand Game Reserve. The six luxury suites each have en-suite bathrooms with a ball-and-claw bath, as well as an outside and inside shower. The décor of the suites is classical and sophisticated. Each suite has a private deck and plunge pool that looks over the river bed.
Superb Game Viewing in Open Vehicles
The game viewing in the Sabi Sand Reserve is excellent and it's well-known for its excellent sightings of leopard. Game drives at Dulini are in open off-road vehicles, making it easier for experienced armed rangers and trackers from the area to bring you closer to the African bush. The afternoon game drive continues as a night drive with spotlights. Strict vehicle limits at sightings will ensure a most rewarding game viewing and great photographic opportunities. Guided bush walks with an armed, experienced tracker will allow you a slower, more intimate experience in the bushveld where your guide will share with you his knowledge of the fauna and flora.
Dulini is a Great Honeymoon Safari Destination
At Dulini, you have the choice of relaxing in the central guest sitting room or on the deck. Enjoy Pan-African cuisine on the dining deck in the shade of an ancient Jackalberry tree.

In fine weather, you can enjoy sumptuous evening meals served around a campfire in the outdoor boma beneath a star-studded African sky.
