#5 of 39 Speciality lodging in Sabi Sand Game Reserve
Travellers' Choice
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.

No words will do the justice for this place. I can tell my self professional traveler, but I have never done safari like Dulini provides you. My main reason for this trip was safari and see some live animals, however I found this place and service was joyful and top notch. Room and people were both amazing.

We have travelled extensively, yet we can claim without fear of contradiction that the Dulini lodge experience epitomizes service excellence. The management and staff leave no stone unturned to make the customer king: Poppy, Ezekiel and their team at reception made us feel immediately welcome, the porters took our car to the parking and took all our stuff (this was our first stop) to the room. The chalet was huge and super- luxe with every imaginable convenience. We loved how the housekeeping was totally unobtrusive yet immaculate. Then there was the dining...... one runs out of superlatives to describe chef Altus's expertise in the kitchen. He puts together the sort of fine dining in the bush(with good portions!) that one can only marvel at. His waiters, Aubrey and Chris, are super well-trained The game drives were an experience in themselves with super-knowledgeable guide, Jem and tracker, Chris who did everything they could to let us see as many amazing sights as possible. Owner, Iain Garrett and his wife Sue were the absolute perfect hosts. We salute them and their team!

Incredible lodge, just spent 4 nights, and everything was perfect, food, room, camp... the best were the drives, Fred and Chris were so knowledgeable and were such good company. We were able to experience the bush, sitting, watching the most unbelievable things, and they are so knowledgeable about everything, birds,bugs, behavior..... everything. Saw the most amazing sightings.... Definitely a "best ever" experience!!!

We stayed at Dulini for 4 nights, and from our first greeting from Poppy and Emma, to our last farewell, we were treated like family. No, make that treated like royalty! This experience was so positive that having visited all 7 continents and many countries, I list this as the best travel experience of my life. Of course we were here for a safari, and we made 7 trips into the bush. Our guide Dinamosi and our spotter Isaac were not only amazing in their ability to find animals, but they were both outstanding people as well. We saw the big 5 and many more. Their explanations of the animals and birds we saw was amazing - their knowledge is encyclopedic! Dulini only has 6 rooms, and our room was wonderfully appointed - an indoor shower, outdoor shower, a heated plunge pool and a fully stocked cabinet with wine, beer and snacks. The room looked out on a river bed and provided total privacy. Our butlers Andy and Chris took great care of us - no request was too small or inconvenient. And a shout out to Benny the chef - we are vegetarian and his food preparation blew us away. With a 5am wake up call for the safari, breakfast was usually served at 0930, lunch was generally at 1400 and dinner was after the last safari usually at 2000. My only complaint about the food is that it was so good and there was so much that I think I gained a couple of pounds! But it was well worth it for the experience. And they have a nice fitness center which I used several times. Dulini is an oasis of tranquility in a busy and complex world. Everyone deserves to be pampered like this at least once in their life. I recommend it wholeheartedly.
