Sabi Sand Reserve, South Africa
For those seeking an intimate and authentic safari experience with personalized care, look no further. Dulini Lodge is the quintessential home away from home luxury safari camp. Dulini is owner run and managed by Ian, and it is clear he puts his heart and soul into making each guest experience truly special. Here, everything up to the smallest details are thoughtfully planned out to make sure you have a memorable stay.
Situated along the Mabrak River within a riverine grove sanctuary on its own private reserve, Dulini consists of six exquisite thatched suites each with connecting bathrooms, a private deck, and a private plunge pool overlooking the bush. The main lodge is a welcoming communal area where guests can warm up by the fireplace, or enjoy a meal in the dining room paired with a glass of wine from an array of selections within the wine cellar. Guests also have the option to dine outside in the traditional boma for al fresco meals around the fire. If a siesta is not on your agenda, don’t hesitate to take a dip in the central swimming pool, stop by the fitness center, or visit the curio shop.
During your stay, the guides and trackers make sure everyone sees a variety of wildlife. The Sabi Sand is notorious for leopard spotting, black and white rhinos, as well as the rest of the Big Five. Back at camp, you can still get up close and personal with the grazing animals right off your own private veranda. Explore the reserve’s natural beauty beneath ebony and leadwood trees and watch birds and animals in the river below from the bridge too!
