Dulini River Lodge

Dulini River Lodge is tucked away in a quiet corner of the Big 5 Sabi Sand Game Reserve (Greater Kruger), an area which is particularly famous for its leopard sightings. The lodge sits in the shade of a grove of ebony trees right on the edge of the Sand River. Eight luxury suites spread out along the shady bank with dramatic close-up views of the river. Cool off in the private plunge pool, while enjoying the sight of a herd of elephant drinking or timid bushbuck browsing the riverside thickets.

Padded loungers beckon from the private veranda of your suite and Al fresco showers, deep bathtubs, in-room massages and fine dining complete your deluxe African encounter at Exeter River Lodge.

How to get to Dulini River Lodge

Dulini River Lodge is reached either by a 90 minute charter flight from Johannesburg into an airstrip within the Sabi Sands or an approximately 2 hour drive from Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport. If you were to drive from Johannesburg the drive time would be approximately 5.5 hours.

This was our favorite place we stayed on our trip. Besides the scenery and beautiful lodge and suites, what really set this accommodation apart was the staff. The whole staff was simply amazing and each person took the time to get to know us. Everyone was a pleasure to talk to and spend time with; our guides were so knowledgeable and the lodge staff were always more than willing to help us with whatever we need. I am so glad Mahlatini arranged this lodge for us, and really helped make this our favorite stop on the trip!

We loved everything about the River Lodge. Our room was spacious and well equipped. All the staff were very friendly and the rangers/trackers knowledgeable. We saw everything we wanted to see at least once. Of the four days we were there we saw the big 5 on two of the days and 4 of the big 5 on the other two days (and this was only because we were looking for other animals). The food and drink were again very good. I would definitely recommend this lodge to anyone thinking of a safari.

The most memorable part of our most memorable trip. The staff were absolutely amazing, the lodge was perfect, the rooms were unbelievable, the food & wine were delicious, the elephants and leopard walking right past the rooms...well I don't need to express how special that was (not even sure I could put it into words anyway!)
