Kruger and Sabi Sands Safari

Dulini Leadwood

‘True Safari Adventure, Rustic African Luxury’

Dulini Lodge is in the 65,000 hectares Sabi Sands Game Reserve, one of Africa’s top safari areas. Sabi shares 50 kilometres of unfenced boundary with The Kruger National Park to the east encouraging sightings of wildlife including the Big Five; lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino. Dulini sits on the bank of the beautiful Mabrak River and enjoys the cover of ancient Leadwood and Ebony trees. The Main Lodge captures the colonial feel of rural Africa with a traditional thatched roof, lantern lit walkways and a refreshingly cool veranda to watch wildlife from. The six thatched suites continue the rustic theme with romantic furnishings, beautiful bathrooms and wonderfully comfortable king size beds protected by canopies of mosquito nets. Dining options include feasting under the stars around a Boma fire and romantic candlelit bush dinners.

In Our Opinion

‘We like the way Dulini builds an intimate and romantic ambience into its lodge and suites while keeping a rustic old fashioned character and a bond with the surrounding wildlife.’

Dining is split between meals shared with your guide and those spent exclusively with your travelling companions. Food is prepared by an executive chef and enjoyed in an outdoor area known as “the boma”, pleasantly warmed by a roaring fire. There are also surprise bush dinners and breakfasts as well as the opportunity to enjoy a romantic open-air candlelit dinner. Traditional African and international cuisine is offered.
