One month after returning from our first trip to S. Africa, my husband and I are still reminiscing about Leadwood Lodge. We have a special place in our hearts for the warm and welcoming staff that was only too happy to please. Our guide, Mac, energized us from the moment we met on the tarmac. Over three nights, which included six game drives, we saw elephants, leopards, a pride of lions, giraffe, zebra, rhino, hippo, impala, hyena, water buffalo, wildebeest, mongoose, crocodile, and various bird life. Our luxury "suite" was comprised of four spacious rooms, a deck, swimming pool, and an outdoor shower. My gluten sensitivity was always acknowledged and our meals were delicious, abundant, and creatively presented. Three to four hour bush drives included chocamocarula each morning and cocktails & snacks in the evening, served by our tracker Prince. We were pleasantly surprised by an astronomer, a bush breakfast, and a romantic anniversary dinner. Although there are many places in the world to visit, we hope to return to LL!

We ended our trip to Africa at Leadwood and it was worth the wait. The lodge was beautiful and the rooms were exceptional. The food the chefs prepared for us was beyond tasty. Our guide Mac and our tracker Prince took such good care of us and showed us so much of the beauty of Kruger National Park. Highly recommend staying here and our valet Arron was one of a kind. He made sure every need was taken care of.

From the moment of your warm welcome arrival with scented towels all needs are taken care of until departure. It truly feels like you are coming home to your family. We brought our kids here to not only see the amazing animals and scenery but to also see the culture and interact with the local people. Dulini helped personalize activities with the kids including African cooking classes and a visit to a local school and community. This allowed them to interact with their peers and created an everlasting bridge between them. Dulini had surprises throughout our stay including a star gazing talk and bush walks looking at animal tracks. The personalization of our vacation and everything we wanted out of it for our family was second to none and created special lifetime memories for all of us. You will leave Dulini with a full, warm heart, a lifetime of memories and a fully charged and nourished soul.

WOW! This has to be one of the most amazing places I have visited. The location was perfect, with beautiful accommodation, with super comfy bed, luxurious linen, well stocked mini bar, indoor bath and shower as well as private outdoor shower and pool where we had Nyala visiting while having a swim. The food was bountiful, delicious and inventive. However, what makes Dulini Leadwood the incredible place that it is, is the staff. From our welcome to our farewell, and in between, the staff could not have been more attentive, friendly and above all happy. It was a delight to visit a place that felt like home by the time we left, and that after only 2 nights. We hope to visit there again in the not too distant future.

We stayed at Dulini Leadwood for 3 nights over our honeymoon in February 2022. The rooms and food were exceptional and in abundance! The drinks selection wasn't amazing and we weren't quite sure what was actually available, it would have been nice to have had a menu at the start. The rooms were exceptional and very private so we were fully able to relax and enjoy the pool and room between game drives. What really made the trip was our guide and tracker. Nic and Dyke were a wonderful team and bounced off each other throughout each game drive. Nic was incredible informative and conversational throughout, we were sad to say goodbye but are already looking forward to booking our next trip and requesting this power team again!

For your convenience, we have copied your original review text below: Cassidy and I had a wonderful 10 day stay at Dulini Leadwood from Nov 8th-Nov 22nd, 2021. This was a dream trip for Cassidy as she's wanted to visit the African bush since she was a little girl. Everything came together in a wonderful way to give us this magical experience. Staying at Dulini Leadwood was a big part of that magic. You can read my blog about our stay for more day to day details on the Trip Advisor South Africa Forum (https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g293740-i9186-k13730096-Dulini_Leadwood_Blog_Review-South_Africa.html) Accommodations Dulini Leadwood is a very small lodge (4 rooms) in the Sabi Sands private game reserve area. It is bordered by Kruger National park and there are no fences between them so animals can come and go as they please. There are multiple lodges within Sabi Sands. Dulini has agreements with several other lodges (Idube, Inyati, Leopard Hills, Savanna, and Ulusaba) to be able to traverse their land within Sabi Sands giving a total of 10000 hectares of land that you can traverse for the game drives. Full room tour: <deleted because trip advisor won't allow me to post it> You can go to your search engine and type in "dulini leadwood room #4 full tour" if you want to find it. We stayed in room number 4. This one is the farthest from the main lodge area and is along the Sand River. And by room, I mean crazy nice suite/bungalow. This is essentially 3 rooms in a large building. A large living room, a large bedroom, and a large bathroom. There are not any doors between the sections of the room and are all open/adjoined at the corners. All of our needs for the room were taken care of by Reinas. He got us a table for out on the deck so we could have outside lunches, as well as making sure our mini bar was stocked with what we wanted. Living Room: The living room has a couch, desk, mini bar, and a huge window that looks outside to the river. There is water, a hot water pot, and a nespresso machine. A fireplace sits in one corner, and it can keep the room warm (but only the living room). The ceilings are high and there is a nice ceiling fan above the couch so you can just lounge inside and watch some of the bush outside. Bedroom: The bedroom has a king sized bed, and behind a closet/wardrobe and desk. From the bed you have 2 sides of the room which has the same view of the bush and river that you can see from the living room. There are large sliding doors which can fully open to the outside. Though you may not want to let insects inside the room, there are screen doors which you can close to let the sounds in but keep the insects out. The closet has some fuzzy robes, and a safe. There is also a laundry basket as they will do your laundry each day (this helps so you don't have to pack as much). The AC for the room comes into the bedroom. It will keep the whole set of rooms at a comfortable temperature, but the bedroom benefits the most. Bathroom: One of the things that drew us to Dulini Leadwoods rooms was having a bathtub that looks out over bush. The one here is a huge soaking tub in the middle of the room. There is also a rainfall shower which also has views to the outside as well. Just like the living room and bedroom the bathroom has 2 sides which are all windowed to the outside, providing a great view of anything that happens to come by. The guest rooms are all spaced apart so there's no privacy issues. There is a small room with a door that contains the toilet. It is a European style toilet. Back Deck: There is a deck that wraps around the back of the room. It runs the length of the living room, bedroom, bathroom and beyond. At the end of the deck there is a large plunge/lap pool. The pool is heated and is open to the bush. Because this is room 4 at the very end, there is a path past the end of the room that a lot of the animals follow when coming to/from the river. It goes right along the side of the deck and we had some animals come and drink from our pool. The rooms were great, privacy was great 5/5. Food Food was all inclusive at Dulini Leadwood. We had breakfast, lunch and dinner each day cooked by the chefs at Dulini. Alcohol is not included in that, and there is a charge for it (listed in the mini bar). There is also a morning drink and evening drink (which can be alcoholic) during the game drives which come at no charge. In the lodge area there are 3 locations to have a meal. The pool, which has a view of the (flowing) Sand river. The deck, which has a view of the (dry) Mabrak river. Then there is the treehouse, which has a view of both. There is also one other location to have a meal, and that is in your room or deck. All of the locations are great and the staff does their best to make things comfortable. Shade if it's hot, heat if it's cold, and bringing you inside if it's raining. With these locations many times we had a display of animals that would just be walking by. Elephants, buffalo, Kudu, and even a leopard. All without leaving the lodge. We also could eat in our room or on our deck. One thing to note is that prior to coming to Dulini Leadwood, I had given the Dulini staff a list of food allergies/sensitivities that Cassidy had. Some were more common like a dairy restriction. Some were more obscure like an issue with mustard, or sunflower products, or paprika, or cilantro. Her list is rather long (probably about 25) and after communicating with the Dulini staff prior to our trip, they came back with some questions from the chefs about what foods DOES she like so they can make appropriate changes. Breakfast: We would always start with a platter of assorted meats, cheeses, fruits, pastries and yogurt. They were switched up each day, but a lot of common elements were there. After that we could order additional hot food. Cassidy would usually get eggs and bacon, and I would get eggs and sausage. There were other options, and we could get the eggs in multiple ways. Every breakfast was excellent. Anything that Cassidy could not have was pointed out to us, and if there were some things she could have because they had made a substitution those were also made known. We loved every breakfast. Lunch: This would come much later, and still fill us up. Fortunately lunch was usually on the lighter side and was always something new and different. We dishes that were often local meats and vegetables. Or things that were prepared with a local style or spice. While we were up for trying new foods, we didn't necessarily like every dish. But the staff was always willing to change something or bring us something else instead. And as always they were very careful with Cassidy's dietary restrictions. From sticky ribs, to ground Kudu kebabs, lunch was an adventure every time. Dinner: This came in a wide variety of formats. Sometimes there were a selection of dishes given to us (anywhere from 5-7). These would have different vegetables, salads, meats, or other items and would be prepared in new and different ways. Sometimes we would have a boma (outside BBQ) and it would be a little more buffet style. But since we were often the only ones in the lodge it was purely for us anyway. Lastly there were the plated meals. Which usually consisted of 4 courses (3 foods and a dessert). The plated meals were our favorite. The quantity and pacing was great, and the plated meal that Oscar prepared for us was the best dinner during the trip. Many of the selection of dishes would have a theme. We had green, red, and yellow salads, maybe even a purple. Each were different and all were delicious. We wanted to especially thank Oscar, Cindy, and Glory (our chefs for the stay) for the amazing food they made and the great care they took into making sure we could eat the foods they were preparing. 4/5 for the food, but I'm adding an extra .5 because of the attentiveness to our dietary needs 4.5/5 Beauty We were at Dulini during the November month. This was just the beginning of their summer (rainy season). Things were a lot more green than I imagined them to have been. Around the lodge everything was green. Trees, bushes, vines were all very plentiful. And there was also lots of plants around the Sand river (which was running). This could be seen from our room, and from the common locations like the treehouse where we might have a meal. Because we were out in the bush, we could not roam around freely. Only within the lodge. We were not supposed to go wandering around the bush (even to the river) because there were wild animals around. At night we were escorted to and from our rooms to make sure we were safe. When we were out on the game drives within the Sabi Sands area it was not as barren as I imagined it to be. There were many trees. Leadwood as this lodge was named after, looked very similar to the oak trees back at home. In fact a lot of the environment looked very familiar with the exceptions of the animal life. The views from the places in the lodge were very nice, especially with the river flowing. But the highlight of the trip were really the animals. Combined untouched natural beauty and animals 5/5. Game Drives Each day there were 2 game drives. One in the morning (5am) and one in the evening (4pm). We were placed in a Land Rover that was especially outfitted for driving in the bush. There were 3 rows of stadium seating behind the ranger. Each row holds 2 people with a cushion topped box in the middle that contains blankets, sunblock, and other items. 7 out of our 10 days at Dulini, we were the only 2 guests in the vehicle. The Ranger drove the vehicle, and the tracker rode in a seat that was just off the hood in the front. Patrick was our ranger, and Tyron our tracker. Each of them have over 11 years of experience in the bush here at Dulini and they taught us so much. Patrick was knowledgeable about most any animal we came across and knew what it was regardless of if it was something we see all the time, or something we saw only once. Tyron was the master at spotting animals from any distance even if he just caught a glimpse. Both were great trackers, and would often times stop at crossroads and see what the tracks were saying. Even when one of them would circle a track in the sand, many times I could not see it. These two had been with us the most out of any of the staff. 8 hours a day in the land rover we got to know each other very well. They were always interested in seeing new things and animals and they appreciated that we were not just in it to see only the big 5. We enjoyed the colorful birds, and other animals we could see. Speaking of the big 5, we saw all of them...multiple times...once in a single game drive. We also saw the magnificent 7 (big 5 + African wild dogs + cheetah). Your mileage may vary, but we knew going to Sabi Sands gave us our best chance of seeing a lot of the different animals. We knew it was not a guarantee, but we were super happy with the results. The game drives were probably the best part of the stay. Even though we did have great encounters near our pool. If anyone made our stay at Dulini Leadwood the most special it was these two. Please if you ever do go, request them specifically. You won't regret it 5/5. Spa Cassidy was able to take advantage of the spa services, but she only did the massage. She had two different massages and really enjoyed them. She got the full body massage, and was well relaxed afterwards. The masseuse, Memory, needed to be scheduled because she serviced all 3 of the Dulini properties, but had strong hands and was well worth it for the price 5/5. Staff/Service Dulini Leadwood has a great staff to guest ratio. Because there's only 4 rooms, the lodge itself seems very isolated and empty. Yet there is always someone there when you need them. Maybe they do all the services when everyone is out for their game drives, but we never felt there were always staff buzzing around. And as far as the service goes, we were never disappointed. We got a daily wake up call at 4:55am. We had a morning latte brought to our door at 5am. For breakfast, lunch and dinner, our places were already set. And when we wanted to make a change (like eating in our room), they were quick to accommodate. We were always thankful and appreciative of all of the staff. We had some of them ask to come along on a game drive with us and got to know them. We also exchanged stories of growing up in our respective areas. Everyone seemed very happy and excited to be there. Because the lodge was very small it was much easier to know everyone's names. So to acknowledge people specifically: Molly and Megan who were the managers that greeted us daily and kept everything on track. Making sure we had what we needed (like our covid tests, and transportation). John and Ntiyiso who brought us our morning lattes and escorted us to our rooms at night. Reinas who was our butler for our stay. Made sure our meals were just the way we wanted or where we wanted. He also answered a lot of our questions about the animals in and around the lodge. Oscar, Cindy, and Grace were our chefs. They made sure our meals were prepared to our needs. We appreciate all the changes they made to dishes to meet our dietary restrictions. And last but not least, Patrick and Tyron. They were a great team that made every game drive an adventure. If you do end up going to Dulini Leadwood, ask for them specifically! The entire staff gets a 5/5 from us. We wanted for nothing. Location Being part of Sabi Sands means you have access to the highest concentration of animals in the whole Kruger area region. You are also not competing with lots of other people who are self driving. Only a maximum of 3 vehicles at a time are at any one sighting. The agreements between the different lodges to increase the area that can be traversed is amazing, and all of the lodges cooperate to make sure you're always seeing something. When getting from Johannesburg to Dulini Leadwood we took a short domestic flight to Sukuza. This was a 1 hour flight + a 1 hour drive to get to Dulini. The alternative was a 5-6 hour drive from Johannesburg (which I would not recommend). Some people will say that the 1 hour drive is like a game drive...it's really not. While you may see some animals, it's not the same as having a real ranger and tracker. Sabi Sands is an excellent place to be for a Safari. 5/5 Value This is the hardest area to judge. Everything we got (see above) was great. We were very pleased. Dulini was not originally on our list because it was out of our budget. Their list price was about $1200 USD per person per night. For the other Sabi Sands lodges (in the same area) the range was from about 600-1400 per person per night. Many of the lodges have seasonal rates which things will vary when you go (we were not going in the high season), but even then those rates were still out of our budget. We were also looking into some lodges in Zimbabwe as well. The seasonal rates in Zimbabwe were around $500-600 USD per person per night. This was the original range we were looking for Several lodges were having additional specials (lets call them Covid specials for now) that were meant to entice travelers to start returning. While not advertised on the site (like some lodges did), when we inquired about the rates and any specials, that's when we learned about them. This brought our stay down into something that was well within our budget, and in fact beat the other rates in Zimbabwe (which had no availability for when we wanted to go anyway). We ended up paying around $350 per person per night. We are certainly happy with this rate and at this point there was tremendous value for everything we got. This would be a 5/5 value, maybe even 6/5. The question becomes, is the value there at $1200 USD per person per night (advertised rate)? That's almost 3x what we paid for our discounted rate. The list rates at Dulini and Ulusaba were similar. The area where you see the animals is the same. Both places have a private pool, one is situated high up on a hill, the other at the bank of a river. We certainly liked Dulini for the river. Other lodges in the area (Inyati and Idube) had rooms that were maybe 1/2 the list price. These two also had covid type specials listed on their website which were similar prices to the special we got at Dulini. These put it in the same price range, with the same game area, but the rooms at Dulini have more amenities (pool, size of room, deck, etc). If our goal was to live a more luxurious lifestyle, having 5 days of more luxury would have made Dulini the easier choice. But our goal was to be able to stay longer and see more animals/more game drives. In that regard we may have opted for a room at Idube or Inyati so we could stay 10 nights, instead of 5 nights at Dulini (assuming list rates). So at list rate prices I would probably rate the value at 3/5. So overall I'm giving the value a 4/5 as an average. But contact them and try to get a good deal! Areas of improvement There were not many things we wished were different at Dulini Leadwood. But trying to find some areas of improvement here's some mostly nitpicky items. Breakfast was standard every day and always very good. For lunch and dinner it was not standard. Meaning it was something different every day. We did like the variety, but it might have been nice to have a list of what we were going to get before they were just brought to us. We were adventurous in trying things, but some dishes (mostly the seafood ones) were a bit inconsistent. So we might have opted to change those. During the game drives there were a number of items that were in the vehicle for you to use. There were some nice blankets, sunscreen, protective glasses, and some other items. They even provided us with a nice thermos of water (which we got to keep). We didn't know that these items would be there. We did bring our own sunscreen, but we could have left those at home. We also thought that there were going to be binoculars in the game vehicle. We had brought our own (fortunately), but there were none in the vehicle. Patrick later told us we could have asked for some from Molly. Making all of this more clear could have helped us pack better. Misc COVID precautions at Dulini Leadwood are excellent. All of the staff are vaccinated, and they have a 6 week on and 2 weeks off policy. When a staff member returns from their 2 weeks off they do a covid test to make sure they are clear. The small number of rooms, and pretty much total isolation of the lodge made this an ideal place to be far away from Covid risk. AFAIK guests do not need to be vaccinated or have a covid test. We were already vaccinated and we needed a negative covid test to get into South Africa. However, a guest who is coming from SA may not be required to be vaccinated or have a negative test before coming to the lodge. I'm not 100% sure about this part. We were able to arrange a Covid test before leaving the lodge (it did cost us extra) and it was nice to have that taken care of before returning on our flight. Wrap Up This was a magical trip for us. The close up animal encounters we had, the amazing game drive, the untouched natural beauty, and all the other factors really came together in a way we couldn't have planned. Travel right now (especially to South Africa) is going to be challenging. But many of these places need tourism to survive. We felt very lucky to make it to Dulini Leadwood before the latest Omicron variant shut things down in South Africa, and beyond. If you can make it to Sabi Sands, I would certainly recommend going to Dulini Leadwood

This was the most spectacular way to end our trip to South Africa. The open air lobby/common dining areas and all four suites of the lodge overlook the river, allowing for game viewing at all times. Our ranger, Neil, and tracker, May, made for an incredible pair on all of our game drives. They were incredible at tracking and spotting animals, we saw the big 5 + so many more animals almost every day! Every game drive was better than than the last, they were amazing and so well informed. Neil even helped me learn the settings on my camera so I could best capture the incredible animals we were seeing. Our suite, room 2, was incredibly roomy with a large indoor living room with fully stocked minibar (all included) and a wrap around porch with a large private swimming pool. This is the type of special place that you want to return to time and time again. I wish I could bring all my friends and family to visit from the US! Thank you for the wonderful service, food, experiences, etc - really made it the trip of a lifetime!

Our safari with Dulini was definitely our favorite part of our honeymoon trip. The staff, butlers, drivers and spotters were all so kind and attentive. The lodge was so private and it was really cool to be there without many other visitors. Our room was incredible - it was huge and the private pool was so nice! On our last night, our butler set up dinner for us in our room with rose petals and champagne - such a nice way to celebrate our wedding/anniversary! All of the food we had was delicious. The portions were huge and the wine was flowing. We did not go hungry or thirsty while there! We saw so many elephants while at the lodge. They spent a few breakfasts with us - so so cool. Basically as soon as we got to Dulini, we spotted a herd of elephants coming into the area behind to lodge to cool down in the river. It was amazing and definitely the coolest part of the trip! We loved the game drives with our driver Scott and spotter Colbert. We truly don't know how they were able to spot so many animals! We saw the big five within the first day of being there! And when we wanted to find giraffes, they made it happen!

After an easy short drive from the airport in our rental car, we were greeted at the gate and then at the entrance to the lodge. Smiles all around and introductions to the staff, then arranged for us to be shown to our suite and to a beautifully set lunch on the terrace overlooking the riverbed. Unbelievable suite with space and comfort and awesome views through three rooms of glass. Our trip was memorable, and some special mentions could not be overlooked. Firstly, Darren who was our host and “go to” guy, I would hire him in a flash for our guesthouse! Thank you for making sure everything was perfect. Patrick and May, our own guide and tracker; unbelievable knowledge of the bush and eyes on both sides of their heads! You both are the best! Glory, our chef, so many choices with so many flavors, always a treat, the four-course dinner was the best! John, thank you for taking us in the dark each evening to our room and making sure we were safe and of course Aaron, our butler who handled all things “food” for us. Anyone who wants to indulge in the Sabi Sands, luxury style, will not miss with any of the three Dulini Lodges, all different, all exceptional style. Thank you all for three amazing days! Linda & Ole

Our stay at Dulini Leadwood was incredible. The safari drives were exceptional, the lodge is beautiful, and the food and drinks were excellent. Our expectations were high, but Scott/ Colbert (our ranger/tracker), our butler Reinas, Emma/Darren (managers), and the rest of the staff managed to even exceed them!! Would highly recommend it to anyone :)
