What a place! The 6 individual cottages all have plunge pools (one day, 11 elephants played in the mud right off our deck), sitting area, king beds, and a huge bathroom with a rain shower & soaking tub. They are beautifully decorated with soft linens and are air conditioned. We were welcomed with cool wash towels soaked in fragrance. Poppy,... More

We visited the Dulini in September 2014. Our plane from Cape Town landed in Nelspruit (Kruger) airport at 12h35. The Dulini had arranged a road transfer from Nelspruit to the lodge. The cost of the transfer was R840 per person one way. The transfer took about 2 hours. Upon arrival we were served a delicious lunch and hop! we were... More

Can't speak highly enough of Dulini. Every single staff member was amazing and genuinely interested. Very thoughtful in organising private dinners etc. The food was incredible and they catered very well for any needs. Excellent quality game viewing and saw everything we could have wanted to. The rooms are incredibly beautiful and large. Absolutely recommend. Dulini feels intimate but no... More

This was not our first safari and we were wowed by everything about the Dulini. The accommodations are super luxury, the food divine and the staff extraordinary. Our ranger Fred and our tracker Martin were I am sure among the best in South Africa. Dulini will amaze you and surprise you. It is a bit of heaven in Sabi Sands.... More

We visited Dulini in early February. We loved it. The lodge is beautiful, elegant and tastefully done.The rooms are gorgeous and they are well stocked with everything you could possibly need for your stay. Our guide and tracker were Patrick and Tyron. They were great. We enjoyed our game drives and saw the big five and much more. The trucks... More

We visited Dulini in September 2014 and after 4 months, we still can not think of anything that we didn't like. From the first welcome to the last good-bye, we enjoyed every minute. The staff at the lodge were attentive and friendly providing personalized service. The food was excellent, even the entrees I had not had before. There were usually... More

Dulini Lodge is fantastic - by far the best vacation I've had to date! We were pampered from arrival to departure. The room is luxurious, the food is great (one of the best meals I've had), and the guides are knowledgable & friendly. We went for 4 nights in September and were able to see the Big 5 (and then...

This was our first trip to Africa and we wanted to maximize our opportunities to view a wide variety of African wildlife in their natural surroundings while being treated to and enjoying the comforts of a small, well maintained, and most accommodating lodge with exceptional service and fabulous cuisine. Dulini Lodge exceeded all our expectations and gets "six" stars from... More

My wife and I spent 4 nights at Dulini Lodge mid November 2014. It's been an outstanding experience - not only from wildlife (Big 5 +++) but also the Lodge itself. Regardless whether the owners (Susan and Ian) or staff members (Poppy, James, Given, Patrick, Tyron just to name a few) -- all have been absolutely dedicated to make our... More

My husband and I stayed at Dulini for 3 nights. We had a night at the Exeter lodge before we arrived at Dulini and initially the didn't want to move, but then I saw Dulini and felt in love! I travel a lot, and have been to amazing five star hotels, but Dulini stands out as the best so far!... More
