Dulini Private Game Lodge

Dulini was suprise and delight at every single turn.I can't say enough good things about this place. We saw all the Big 5 plus many many other amazing things and we were so up close and personal with the animals I would find myself not breathing! The first night there was a bush dinner and Melissa and I were in tears coming off our first amazing game drive only to arrive at this setting and be greeted with a bonfire, African singing and dancing, gorgeous wine and food and the warmest staff on the planet.It seemed like it would have been hard to top that with the bar set so high the first day but they continued to raise the bar and jump over it right up until we left. We were so sad to leave and will have a place for Dulini in our hearts forever! EVERYTHING about Dulini was perfect and I would not ever hesitate to recommend it if I were in your shoes. They truly consider every single second of your day and how to make it a perfect experience. Worth every single penny. I don't have enough words for how amazing it was and we all agreed it was the experience of a lifetime.

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

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.

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.

"Dulini was definitely the most grand of the safari lodges. Each safari drive was different and interesting in its own way."

"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."

"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."

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.

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!!

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.

Dulini was just perfect. Wonderful staff, beautiful accomodation and great wildlife viewing. My thoughts to other travelers is don't expect to see the quantity of animals you will see at the Masai Mara, Serengeti, or Ngorongoro Crater. But you will see wildlife in much more intimate settings. We had lions and leopards as well as many other animals wandering through the lodge grounds during both the days and evenings. It does get your blood pumping a bit. The area where we were is not short or tall grass plains but heavy bush so you tend to be right on top of the animals and that is very exciting. They also do a much better job of controlling the viewing. You will never see more than two vehicles at a particular sighting unlike the places mentioned above where you might have ten or fifteen vehicles at a particularly exciting viewing. The trackers, rangers and lodge staff were as good as it gets. This place gets a five star rating from Wava and I.

At Dulini Lodge we saw the big five several times during our 3 day stay plus lots of other animals too, my wife was enthralled. The lodge was everything we hoped for without being ostentatious. The rooms were big and the layout of the Lodge was really nice too. The food was always very nice and always well presented, and all the staff were outstanding with nothing being to much trouble. We loved every minute.

Dulini : superb lodge, more exclusive and luxurious than Kirkman's. I liked the private plunge pool and the terrace with the outside shower. The bathroom is also wonderful. Excellent game drives, even if here you see lots of other cars and they communicate a lot by radio, taking a waiting list position for the various animals found. So less natural, but you are mostly sure to see something. It was the idea for my father's family, and they were delighted by their experience. The off road driving was also quite something with us getting stuck a couple of times. And it is very good to be able to follow a leopard in the bush.

The Exeter Dulini lodge was equally regal, though very different. They did a fantastic job letting us dine in different settings every night, including having pancakes and champagne in the bush or lunch in a river bed. We couldn't have been more pleased.

Our stay in Exeter Dulini was wonderful, I do not remember a place and people so marvellous as what we found there. Every day a different surprise, all kind of details... Lovely people. Great in one word. It has been so nice that we are recommending everybody to go there. And of course we were able to find all the big 5 and many other, really exciting!! I look forward to going there again, let's see.
