Dulini Lodge, Sabi Sands Game Reserve

South Africa, Kruger National Park

  • Set out over three lodges, enjoy romance and tranquillity or a livelier lodge
  • Sit around the fire in the boma and listen to stories or try private dining on your viewing deck

There are three lodges to choose from in Dulini, each with their own character and selection of luxury facilities. Dulini Lodge is sheltered by the ancient Ebony and Leadwood trees of the surrounding woodland, leading down to the Mabrak River where you can hear the sounds of exotic birds and animals. Leadwood Lodge offers bright and spacious interiors and fascinating wildlife, where the Mabrak and Sand Rivers meet. This is the ideal setting for a honeymoon or romantic getaway. The River Lodge has six luxurious suites, all of which offer views over the Sand River and a large communal area.

Your stay at Dulini Lodge includes game drives through the surrounding game reserve, which shares a large unfenced border with the famous Kruger National Park. From here you can spot Africa’s famous Big Five, as well as other incredible wildlife, birds, insects and landscapes.
