The five-star Dulini River Lodge provides luxury safari accommodation right on the banks of the scenic Sand River in the spectacular Sabi Sands Game Reserve of South Africa's Mpumalanga province. The Sabi Sands Game Reserve lies adjacent to the well known Kruger National Park with no fences separating the two, making for an area which offers a rich diversity of wildlife.

The wildlife rich Sabi Sands Reserve is especially famous for sightings of the elusive leopard, lion, and cheetahs. Being home to the 'Big 5', some of Africa's most fantastic animal viewing can be experienced in this region. The main lodge offers breathtaking views of the river and surrounding reserve and provides the perfect environment where guests can just sit back, relax and enjoy the wonders of the untamed African bush.

Dulini offers eight spacious and luxurious suites where the Sand River flows right past the door. The suites are spacious to ensure guests have a comfortable and relaxing stay.

Large en-suite bathrooms with a bath and separate shower, a private plunge pool, lounge and private viewing deck make for an excellent setting in the bush. Enjoy views of the passing wildlife from the comfort of your suite as they come to quench their thirst.

Dining

At the lodge, the meals served are designed to fit in with the safari experience. Guests staying at the Lodge enjoy delicious breakfasts, lunches, and dinners.

The meals at the lodge are set out by the lodge's chef daily to ensure that guests experience something new every day. All the meals are freshly prepared and offer a unique safari culinary experience.

Activities

The River Lodge offers its guests an exciting insight of the African bush and its wildlife with their safari drives and bush walks. Safari drives occur on a daily basis in the mornings and the late afternoons. Visitors enjoy exploring over 10 000 hectares of safari reserve in an open 4x4 safari vehicle while spotting some of Africa's most beautiful wild animals. The safari drives are all led by experienced guides and trackers to ensure travellers get the most out of their memorable safari drive experience.

They also offer guests the option to go on a guided bush walk. The forest walk is an excellent way to learn about the smaller plants and animals of the reserve during the safari drives. While on the bush walk, the guide will share his knowledge of the flora, fauna, insects and small animals which live in reserve. The bush walk is about an hour long and offers a real eye-opening experience.

The River Lodge's main lodge also offers an extensive open lounge area which is the perfect place just to sit and relax while enjoying a book or to socialise with other guests at the lodge.

In-room massage treatments can also be arranged in the comfort and privacy of the suites. The massage treatments offer an excellent way to relax and de-stress and leave guests feeling rejuvenated for the rest of their stay at the lodge.
