The Dulini was the second leg of our honeymoon, we arrived via small aircraft from CapeTown to Nelspruit and landed on Richard Branson's air strip. From the amazing welcome from Poppy, the awesome ranger Fred, tracker Martin, and our attentive butler Reply (his service was the best we have experienced)...we could not have asked for a better honeymoon. We saw... More

No doubt, the owners of Dulini have put a lot of love, money and energy to make this lodge a great experience and they have succeded. The game drives (after all, this is what it is - almost - all about) are great, rangers and trackers experienced, friendly and konwledgeable, the 6 seater Land Rovers comfortable, the food good and...

My wife and I stayed at Dulini in May 2015 for our honeymoon. It was the most amazing experience we could have asked for. The entire staff is incredible. Our guide, Patrick, and tracker, Tyrone, were professional, courteous, knowledgeable, and all-around great guys. They made sure we had the best opportunity to see every animal we wanted to see and...

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

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...
