★ ★ ★ ★ ★

The luxurious Dulini Leadwood Lodge is situated in the game-rich Sabi Sands Game Reserve on the banks of the Sand River in South Africa's Mpumalanga Province. 

As there are no fences between the Sabi Sands Reserve and the Kruger National Park, the area surrounding the exclusive Leadwood Lodge offers a great diversity of beautiful African wildlife making it the perfect place for the traveller in search of a spectacular game viewing safari experience.  With its four spacious and well-appointed suites, the Leadwood Lodge offers exclusivity and privacy at its best.

The Leadwood Lodge features a total of four private suites.  These are situated away enough from each other to offer guests their privacy, yet they are still close enough for families to be near to each other.  The rooms are designed to blend in with the surrounding environment as rich natural colours have been used in the suites.

Large glass doors provide the perfect window into the African plains and riverbanks below where guests can enjoy spectacular views of the wildlife which comes to get their daily water. The suites at the Leadwood Lodge offer private decks which boast their very own plunge pool and king size beds. The best of comfort is provided in the rooms with underfloor heating adding a touch of modern-day luxury to the safari accommodation.

Activities available at Sabi Sand's Leadwood Lodge

The Leadwood Lodge is situated in one of the most spectacular game viewing regions African has to offer, as such all the activities at the Leadwood Lodge are based around the reserve and game viewings.  While staying at Leadwood, guests can enjoy two exciting game drives daily, one when dawn approaches and an afternoon game drive which continues till the sunsets.  The game drives offer a fantastic animal viewing experience as the 4x4 safari vehicles can travel off-road on tough terrain to where the animals are.

The trained and experienced guides and trackers at the Leadwood Lodge take visitors directly to where the animals are so one is almost guaranteed to see most of the wildlife which is home in the Sabi Sands Game Reserve.  The thrilling game drives take guests out to areas in the reserve where the larger animals such as elephants, rhino, lions, cheetah, leopards are which increases the chances of seeing the 'Big 5' while on a trip.  As the rangers follow the animals and no specific route, no two game drives are the same.

Bush walks are a fantastic way to explore the environment with a closeup and personal approach.  On a bushwalk, guests get to see, feel and smell the nature around them with no constricting factors.   While out on a bushwalk, visitors are lead around the reserve areas which are closely situated to the lodge for safety reasons.  This is a fantastic and interactive way to learn more about the magnificent African bush and the beauty and splendour that it holds.
