Dulini River Lodge

Dulini River Lodge Sabi Sands Kruger

Soak up dramatic views of the Sand River in the Sabi Sands Game Reserve when you take a holiday in a top-rated property with premium accommodation and daily game drives – this is Dulini River Lodge. A world class safari destination in the Greater Kruger National Park, peeping out from a grove of statuesque ebony trees where glossy timber walkways meander and secret dining spots allow guest to feel as if they too are part of the wilderness. 

Take time to relax in comfortable chairs on the verandas sipping a drink while elephants stroll into the river. Enjoy plush spacious suites spread out along the river bank – intimate service, breath-taking vistas, excellent game viewing and mouth-watering food. We take you there, on special safari packages to the safari lodges and camps in Kruger Park.

Dulini River Lodge oozes a sense of extravagance true to the long-standing safari tradition. 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.   

At River Lodge, only six luxurious suites have been ingeniously elevated in a clean cut, ethnic architectural style to take in the inspiring views over the vital Sand River, to the savannah beyond. Each suite, set in a private riverine enclave, offers the luxury of a heated plunge pool and the lavish attention of a personal butler, thus enhancing the indulgence in the African ambience. Muted shades of blues, beiges, creams and browns complete the earthy aura of a lodge that takes nature conservation to heart.

Dulini River Lodge presents the drama of the bushveld and resident wildlife to all guests on game drives early in the mornings and evenings when the animals are at their most active. Expert game rangers and their diligent trackers show you where the animals hide out and why. Exclusive six-seater open air safari vehicles take you into the wilderness in a sensory explosion of education and pleasure. Yes, exhilarating encounters with wildlife and sincere hospitality are what make Dulini River Lodge an unforgettably enriching experience.

Overview

We love the Dulini River Lodge setting beneath old graceful ebony trees on the banks of a picturesque meandering Sand River. Find this authentic safari accommodation deep in the wilderness of the famous Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve on the edge of charismatic Kruger National Park. 

Dulini is deservedly one of South Africa’s top safari lodges, indulging all visitors with the pleasures of old safari days and luxury camps that hosted pleasure seekers.  This intimate, laid-back lavish lodge comprises just six elegant, thatched suites, stylishly put together with soft furnishings, quality linens and amenities with a focus on the great outdoors. Appreciate awe-inspiring views over the riverbed to the rolling bushveld grasslands beyond. 

Each suite is super remote in its own riverine cove, immersed in wilderness sounds, sights, smells and textures. Look out for jaw-dropping wildlife sightings from your personal deck with plunge pool while your private butler brings you a cold drink.

Dulini River Lodge is famous for its intimate service, breath-taking vistas, excellent game viewing and mouth-watering food. In the main lodge, deep comfortable sofas are carefully placed to make the most of the natural setting and to ensure guests miss nothing at the river. Rest a while on the roomy sunny deck before gathering in the African dining venue known as the boma. Here, dine on freshly grilled venison around the camp fire as knowledgeable game rangers entertain you with legends and stories of the bush.

Stroll around the astonishing collection of expensive South African wines in the state-of-the-art Dulini River Lodge wine cellar with a collection of some of our finest South African wines. Whatever you do on safari, you don’t want to slack on your fitness routine, so head on down to the extremely well-equipped gym to keep your safari feasting under control! 

Choose an African souvenir on sale at the cute curio shop and find a nature book in the extensive library of books if you feel like kicking back and relaxing on the deck.

Now you know what the extravagant Dulini River Lodge is all about – a once in a lifetime safari to an unforgettable safari accommodation destination in the Kruger National Park!
