Dulini Lodge


Pure Potential on the Banks of the Sabi River

Grandeur goes intimate in this exclusive setting in the west region of Sabi Sands. Dulini Lodge, parent to a collection of six guest suites, pays reverence to the traditional thatch-hut look while plying you with all the comforts of the modern world. The real elegance, we would argue, is in the ancient Ebony and Leadwood trees that form a canopy above you, the impressive game that struts about un-phased, or the gentle Mabrak river a stones-throw (from your suite) that provides an almost biblical undertone to the whole experience, but—sure—it doesn’t hurt to punctuate a long day with a dip in your personal plunge pool too.

Must-do Activity? The evening game drives are an incredible experience. There is no feeling quite like the one you get while pursuing a big cat as the African sun sets.

There are not enough stars to give for the experience you'll get at Dulini. The accommodations are amazing, the food is incredible, the wildlife viewing is spectacular and even more impressive is the attentive staff.
