“Located by a grove of ebony trees on the banks of the seasonal Sand River, the exclusive Dulini River Lodge has an exquisite riverfront location. With only six thatched cottages, guests receive great personal service and attention. Each cottage has a private plunge pool and a viewing deck for watching animals graze. There’s also a wine cellar, well-equipped gym, and a marvellous setting for romantic meals.”
This luxury safari lodge on the banks of the Mabrak River in the Sabi Sands Game Reserve, is located in an area renowned for its leopard sightings.
Small but perfectly formed, the property boasts just six lavish and spacious thatched cottages. Each cottage is classically decorated with a mix of colonial elegance and laid-back luxury and comes with its own viewing deck with heated plunge pool.
The lodge lounge and dining areas are under thatch with open side, high ceilings and screed floors, so guests feel connected to the environment. Deep comfortable sofas, an extensive deck, a giant sausage tree and an open air boma add to the amenities.
Start the day with an early morning game drive followed by breakfast back at camp. Spend the afternoons enjoying bush walks or relaxing by the pool before another game drive. Evenings are best spent with a romantic candlelit dinner, freshly prepared by the lodge’s private chefs and eaten under the stars.
