My husband and I just got back from a two week honeymoon, in which we visited the Seychelles, Cape Town, and then, finally, Dulini. While each place amazingly seemed to top the last, we can say without a doubt that Dulini was far and away the best part of our whole trip. The animals and sightings were incredible and plentiful,...

Being a South African citizen, it is easy to take the bushveld safari experience for granted because we live in such a beautiful country but this Lodge is exceptional in every way. My husband and I stayed at River Lodge, Unit 3. Let's start with the rooms, beautifully appointed and neat as a pin. Beautiful Local artist, art on the...

What can I say, we were originally booked into another great lodge in this area where we had wonderful experiences two years ago but unfortunately for them they were in the middle of renovations and couldn't accommodate us. So we chose Dulini, WOW!!!!! from the warm and friendly arrival right until we left we felt welcome and wanted. The very...

Only 6 "rooms" makes this lodge very intimate and personal with more staff than guests (usually 2 staff per guest). The rooms/cottages are massive and immaculately clean (something hard to do in the bush). Airfield is close, making the lodge easy to get to when flying. Wildlife is just outside your deck or heated plunge pool (or wandering in the...

After spending 2 nights at the Dulini River Lodge we spent 2 nights at the Dulini Lodge. Even though both Lodges are in the same Reserve and very close they offer a different athmosphere. The Dulini Lodge gives you a stronger "Africa feeling" in terms of decoration and setup in my view. The bungalows are very spacious and well equipped.The...

Three couples went to the Dulina Lodge and had the safari experience of a lifetime! The rooms were beautiful and the food was terrific but the best part was our guide, Blaine Moolman and our tracker, Colbert, who went above and beyond to show us leopards and lions close-up and personal. Would definitely return.

This was our first time in Africa and our first safari game lodge experience. In fairness I waited until our Africa trip was complete to write this review so that I could compare different game lodges that we visited. For reference we also stayed at game lodges in Hwange, Zimbabwe and Chobe, Botswana. Dulini Lodge is in a league of...

My family and I spent 5 days here and it was the most wonderful 5 days. From the minute we was picked up at Newington Gate by Blaine and Fred to the minute we was dropped back off at Ulusaba I really couldn't find one single fault to moan about. I won't write too long a review, the 365 previous...

We have just come home from a fantastic family adventure/holiday to Dulini Lodge, Kruger Park, South Africa. My eldest son arranged the whole holiday and everything was superb. 10 of us had the most memorable time, from the private chartered plane from J.Burg airport to Kruger. (We had already spent 4 days in Cape Town Hermanus area) My two sons...

Long overdue review. We loved it here. Everything! People were amazing, food was excellent, amenities were great and I could literally safari every single day of my life. Assuming my marriage survives my complete infatuation with Ranger Blaine, we will be back.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Under a leafy canopy of ebony trees, six luxurious stone cottages grace the banks of the Mabrak River. As one of only 12 guests, you feel instantly at home in this quiet retreat, where classic interiors enfold guests in quiet style and elegance. Generous private plunge pools and shady decks look out onto the dry riverbed. Large, welcoming sofas and African sculptures fill the gracious guest areas. Dine under the ancient jackalberry tree where skilled chefs serve delicious meals or steal away for an intimate dinner in the well-stocked wine cellar. ... more   less
