About Dulini River Lodge
Perched on the edge of the Sand River, in the world famous Sabi Sand Game Reserve, eight spacious riverside suites allow guests to have dramatic views of the river.
After a morning of seeing the big 5, padded loungers and a plunge pool beckon from the private veranda of your suite, inviting you to an afternoon of activities in the greenery and to admire the occasional herd of elephant taking their daily bath. Or, simply retire for a restful siesta or a quiet hour with a good book in the cool interior of your spacious suite.
Dinner then awaits for you, but distantly you hear cackles of laughter and its not just from the people behind you. The delicious cuisine gets your tongue tingled, until an urge of fatigue hits and you can slowly make your way back to your suite.
The last sound you hear as you drift off to sleep in the depths of your warm bed is the gentle rushing of the river outside your front door.
Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve is an unspoilt part of Africa, ecologically and geographically integrated with the adjacent Kruger National Park. It is situated within one of the oldest and largest proclaimed private reserves in Africa - the world renowned Sabi Sand Wildtuin.
All the Sabi Sabi lodges are unfenced and with no fences between Sabi Sabi and the other reserves in the area, wildlife roams freely, giving guests the ultimate safari experience.
Sabi Sabi lies 500 km east of Johannesburg, 800 km north east of Durban and 200 km west of Maputo in Mozambique. It lies on the same latitude as Sao Paulo and Brisbane and the same longitude as Cairo, Istanbul and St.Petersburg.
