Sabi Sand Game Reserve


Dulini River Private Game Lodge Location Map

Set on the banks of the Sand River, Dulini River Private Game Lodge is situated in the world famous Sabi Sand reserve adjoining Kruger National Park. The lodge boasts one of the finest locations in the whole reserve, and elephants, buffalo, and other game are frequently spotted in the river from the lodge itself.

One of the longest established lodges in the area, the lodge can trace its history back to the 1930s, and this heritage is reflected in the large comfortable suites, teak furniture, finest linens and ornaments from the 4 corners of Africa. This truly is a world class lodge in a world class game reserve.

Morning and afternoon game drives on open 4x4 safari vehicles provide unrivalled game viewing in the company of highly skilled rangers and Shangaan trackers.

A crystal clear swimming pool is a wonderful area to relax between game drives, or there is a small gymnasium.

Evening meals are served either under the stars in the boma or in the magnificent lounge and dining area which overlooks river and the savanna beyond.

The lodge is intimate, with only 8 suites, and this ensures a truly personal service from the outstanding and friendly staff.

The suites are amongst the most luxurious in the Sabi Sand reserve, and each boasts a private sun-deck overlooking the game-rich area surrounding the lodge.

All the rooms have large luxury bathrooms, a lounge area, and private pool and outdoor shower.
