Dulini Leadwood Lodge

Accommodation in Kruger National Park Duluni Leadwood

Book the picturesque Dulini Leadwood Lodge for your sole use and experience wilderness perfection in elegant accommodation in Kruger National Park. Choose this world class safari lodge in the famous Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve with excellent game viewing. Deluxe modern yet earthy facilities make Dulini Leadwood the ultimate safari destination for discerning travellers like yourself. 

Treat your family or close friends to this retreat in a Kruger refuge, where you can be together in only 4 intimate suites spread out under the majestic Leadwood Trees that give the lodge its name. Find it in the fork of the Sand and Mabrak Rivers, barely impacting on the biodiversity surrounding it. This is the heart of the Sabi Sands, part of South Africa’s famous Kruger Park.

Dulini means ‘sanctuary’ or ‘shelter’ and is an African word for a termite mound where termites hide from predators like aardvarks. It all started when the owners of Dulini Leadwood came upon an aardvark trying to get into a termite mound and they named their special place ‘place of the antbear’. So, today, Dulini is a special refuge for such wild animals as well as rare pangolins, warthogs, pythons and more.   

This is the place for your private party in a sheer lavish setting with your personal butlers to attend to your every need – and being alone in the wilderness takes on new meaning. Relish that sense of exclusivity in a haven created from nature’s offerings – stone, wood, reeds, cement and thatch. But so chic that you feel as if you are in a hotel made for kings. Get the royal treatment at Dulini Leadwod, a place where the trees the main focus and tranquillity is the reason for your safari.  

The four enormous suites are made for solitude with all rooms flowing into each other and letting in the light and sun through wall high glass doors and windows. The landscape before you is the movie you watch every day, the drama of wildlife interactions like a popular soapy on TV. Watch it every day and get to know more about intricate nature.  

Stone walls, timber and thatched roofs, screed and wooden floors, modern trendy light fittings and tasteful sofas and chairs make Dulini Leadwood’s luxury accommodation warm and fancy, inviting and chic. Add to this a deep bathtub, walk in rain showers inside and outside, a large deck with a private swimming pools and views for Africa, literally!
