Dulini River Lodge Hero

Dulini River Lodge

Discover Dulini River Lodge

Dulini River Lodge is an elegant, 5-star safari lodge situated in the world-famous Sabi Sand Nature Reserve, a landscape renowned for its abundance of the Big Five, where close-up sightings of Africa’s large cats are almost guaranteed. It is a haven of luxury and fine living where you can expect unforgettable game drives, warm Dulini hospitality and understated décor.

River Lodge is set above the perennial waters of the Sand River and beneath the boughs of a mature riverine forest. The serenity of this setting is then reflected in the elemental tones and textures of the 6 suites, all with cantilevered decks boasting heated plunge pools. The outdoor decks allow you to watch wildlife from the comfort of your luxury suite. At River Lodge, you will indulge in a gastronomic adventure of fresh seasonal dishes served in unforgettable settings such as on a remote riverbank.
