Nestled amongst the ancient trees and abundant wildlife of Sabi Sands is the phenomenal Dulini Lodge. Intimate and remote, rustic yet luxurious, Dulini is comprised of just six stunning villas, each with a private plunge pool. Equal parts adventure and relaxation, every stay at Dulini is an extraordinary, personalized experience. While you may come for the big five, you’ll return time and time again for Dulini – the epitome of safari serenity and endless romance.
Sequestered on the banks of the Mabrak River, Dulini is located in the renowned Sabi Sands Private Game reserve in South Africa. A flight from Nelspruit airport will land you at Dulini in less than 30 minutes. Alternatively, the scenic road transfer from Nelspruit is roughly 2 hours and is guaranteed to get your game viewing started early. Situated in such a prime location, you’ll enjoy the sights of leopards and the symphony of wild birds – all from the comfort of the main lodge.
All six stone and thatch villas sit riverside, furnished with modern luxuries and touches of the region’s unique style. The villas are spacious, each with a generous plunge pool, elegant bedding with canopies of mosquito netting and a shady terrace for game-watching by day and star-gazing by night. A private villa of this splendour is the optimal way to unwind after a stimulating day of discovery.
Why we like it
Boasting three dining options, you can choose between private candlelight dinners, family-style suppers with traditional song and dance, or a quiet night in your villa with a much-deserved bubble bath. Love Dulini as much as us? Good news, Dulini Lodge is just one of three hotels that form the Dulini Collection. Dulini, Leadwood River Lodge each embody their own distinct character and charm and each offer something different to fall in love with.
