Traveller Reviews

  • Dulini was a highlight of the trip. A Kruger safari that will leave us with lifetime memories. Could not have been better.

    Eric van der Schueren, January 2016
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Dulini. The staff members were really nice and provided an excellent experience. The relatively small lodge really appealed to us. We had an excellent guide and tracker there. The wildlife viewing we had was exceptional.

    John Buhr, July 2015
  • Dulini was definitely the most grand of the safari lodges. Each safari drive was different and interesting in its own way.

    Steve and Elizabeth Holtze, May 2015
  • A beautiful lodge in lovely surroundings. We loved the atmosphere and ambience of this lodge. Our ranger, Patrick was very knowledgeable! We had some great game drives, which included some oustanding sightings of Lion, Leopard, Cheetah, Elephant and some of South Africa’s gorgeous birds. Dulini is well worth a visit for anybody travelling to that part of the Kruger - you will not be disappointed.

    Simon Warner, May 2015
  • We loved it last time four years ago and this time it was even better. Premises, staff and food were all faultless and the guides outstanding.

    Nick Blackford, May 2015
  • Dulini is fantastic. We were very impressed with our guide and tracker. We got lucky being there for a few days between bouts of rain, so that was great. They gave us a private dinner in our suite that was much appreciated.

    Nora Lindner, March 2014
  • Arrival at Dulini was perfect. They're very kind and gave us a warm welcome. All was very nice organized. A big plus was that their Jeeps had only 2 guests in one row and not like other lodges with 3 ppl in one row. Every Dinner and lunch was in a different way and always a great surpise. Food was excellent.

    Andreas Freijs, February 2014
  • Our trip was excellent to describe it in a word! Especially the stay at Dulini lodge at Sabi Sand was very special. I have posted a couple of reviews on Trip Adviser as well. I would highly recommend Dulini for every aspect of the safari - from animal viewings to luxury to nature to food to service!!

    Rakhi Sehrawat, November 2013
  • The physical surrounds at Dulini are deceptively low-key but this leafy, thatched and quiet place almost immediately exerts a wonderful calm. The comfort and ease go very deep, and the care and attention of staff was first-rate, from Patricia in management to butler Maurice. We felt looked after and gently managed at every turn. Food was both simple and excellent, whether in the main dining area or brought to our deck. The lodge accommodation was spacious and interesting, with ample room on the deck and around the plunge pool. The game drive experience was superb. Ranger William Moss had an encyclopaedic knowledge not just of the big game but also of birds, insects, plants, reptiles, trees and shared this with enthusiasm and zest. He and tracker Isaac made a great team and from first to last we found the morning and evening drive experience immensely rewarding and enriching. We truly could not have been in better hands. If we could change one thing? It would have been wonderful to have a book on the birds and animals of Sabi Sand / Kruger back in our room, to browse between game drives. But that’s it. This was a superb experience, as good as any holiday experience we’ve enjoyed.

    Kevin Dawson, March 2013
  • It was excellent. I will go again for sure.
