Dulini River 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.

Dining

Outdoor Dining

Every meal at Dulini is a celebratory African Affair, uniquely infused with timeless flavours, passionately prepared in reinvented tradition and lavishly served in wondrous settings.

Private Dining

Fresh, local and homemade by zealous and talented chefs, each dish is curated to tantalize the taste buds and ignite the imagination.

The Boma

Traditionally known as The Boma, this truly African dining venue boasts a ceiling of stars and a roaring fire.

Location
Dulini River Lodge is located in the western sector of the world-famous Sabi Sand Game Reserve, bordering the Kruger National Park. The Lodge is situated on the top of a rocky outcrop, offering spectacular views over the bush and the natural waterhole on the plains below the Main Lodge. Dulini River Lodge traverses over 10,000 hectares of incredibly diverse ecosystems, from the open plains in the south and the riverine bush along the banks of the Sand River, to the woodland and rock outcrops in the north. With such diversity of flora comes an equal diversity of fauna, making Leopard Hills the ideal destination to view Big Game in its natural habitat.

Within the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, the ‘Big 5’, (elephant, lion, rhino, buffalo and leopard), abound and viewing them at close proximity is the lodge's speciality. Traversing over 10,000 hectares of incredibly diverse ecosystems makes Dulini the ideal destination to view plentiful game in its natural habitat. Each day brings something different, as you explore the bush in an open game viewing vehicle. Whether it is a leopard on the hunt, lions roaring at twilight, hippo wallowing in the river, or a crocodile basking on a sandy bank; each viewing will enthrall.
