Dulini Leadwood Lodge

A honeymoon favourite, super-intimate Leadwood Lodge can also be booked exclusively for families & groups.

With only four suites on offer, Leadwood Lodge is one of the smallest accommodations in the Sabi Private Game Reserve. Its intimate and private nature has long made it a honeymoon favourite but Leadwood can also be booked in its entirety, making it equally attractive to families and groups of friends looking for an exclusive Sabi safari.

Overlooking the Sand River and sitting under giant shade trees, the suites are magnificent affairs. Air-conditioned and glass-fronted, they offer lavish private living and include a plunge pool and secluded viewing decks. Dinners are served in a variety of locations to augment the culinary experience while touches like fireplaces and a wine cellar add character – no wonder Leadwood Lodge has a stellar reputation and consistently features in top traveller lists.

Guests can also look forward to some of the best game viewing in Africa. The lodge sits in classic Big 5 country and enjoys excellent leopard sightings. Night drives and guided walks add to the experience, and you’ll have the advantage of specialist guides, off-road driving and the sharp eyes of local trackers. For a deluxe, private Sabi safari, Leadwood Lodge is hard to beat.

Lodge Highlights:

  • Beautiful riverside setting
  • Prime game viewing location
  • Romantic, intimate & very luxurious
  • Available as an exclusive-use camp

About Dulini Leadwood Lodge

Luxury Suites

  • Contemporary, Glass-fronted Design
  • Air Conditioning & Fireplace
  • Plunge Pool & Viewing Deck
  • En Suite Bathroom plus Outdoor Shower

There are only four suites at Leadwood, each a contemporary masterpiece with a thatched roof and wilderness views. Outside, the private plunge pool catches the eye, as do the sun loungers thoughtfully left on the viewing deck. Step inside through glass sliding doors and enter the suite, complete with double bed and all the comforts of safari accommodation – mini bar, air conditioning, a fireplace, safe and a ceiling fan. Each has an adjoining, generously-sized bathroom with a free-standing bath and the option of indoor and outdoor showers.

Lodge Facilities

  • Swimming Pool & Sundeck
  • Lounge, Bar & Dining Room
  • Wine Cellar & Outdoor Dining
  • Wi-Fi Access

Leadwood may be one of the smaller Sabi lodges but its guests don’t want for much. If they leave the sanctuary of their suites, they can sit back to easy armchair game viewing from the lodge’s main observation decks or cool off in the main pool. The lodge itself has an open and welcoming atmosphere; its lounge, bar and dining areas sit under thatch, all with views over the Sand River.

Meals are served in a variety of locations: you may enjoy a bush breakfast, lunch in the breeze-cooled dining room and supper in the convivial embrace of the outdoor boma, a traditional African eating place. Private dining is also available.

Activities at Leadwood Lodge

  • Morning & Afternoon Game Drives
  • Bird Watching
  • Spot-lit Evening Drives
  • Guided Nature Walks

The best game viewing at Leadwood is traditionally during the dry season – May to October – when animals are concentrated at water sources and the vegetation is low. But such is the nature of the environment that guests enjoy excellent game viewing all year round. The Big 5 can usually be seen within a few game drives and the area enjoys a great reputation for leopard sightings. You’ll sit back on two game drives a day – early morning and late afternoon. Following sunset drinks and snacks, you’ll return to camp via a spot-lit night drive, giving you the chance to spot unusual nocturnal animals.

Experience of a lifetime and wonderful service!!

Our extended family (16 travellers, including 8 children under ten years of age!) went on a wonderful safari adventure curated and organised by Walter Kohrs of Safari Online. It could not have been any better than we experienced. From our time in Cape Town, to visiting Victoria Falls, all the way through Zimbabwe and finally wrapping up at the amazing Chobe Safari Lodge, all the locations chosen by Walter were amazing.

His attention to detail, willingness to fine-tune and excellent responsiveness (over a period of several months!) could not have been better. He took time to visit us personally upon our arrival in South Africa, with lovely gift-packs and shared a wealth of advice, recommendations and tips. I cannot recommend Safari Online (and Walter Kohrs in particular) any higher. Absolutely amazing.

We had a wonderful holiday with no hitches, perfectly planned for us and so professional.

Though we live in Australia, Safari online made planning for our family holiday so easy. Walter understood our requirements and nothing was too much trouble. The holiday was everything we wanted it to be and so much more. Every camp was ideally suited for our family and we loved each day, every early morning and evening game drive. Thank you to Walter for his attention to detail and his friendly, professional and caring manner. It was a trip of a lifetime and one that we will talk about forever.

Mary (AU)
Outstanding experience!

We have booked at the Elephant Plains Lodge. We stayed there for a few nights and went on safaris. The lodge, the guide, the food and all the animals we have seen were fantastic. Really an outstanding experience. We can recommend Elephant Plains to everybody. Maybe you will not be as lucky as we were, becaucse we have seen the Big 5! But however you will not forget your stay at Elephant Plains.

Best experience ever!!

They provide us the most taylored and customized honeymoon possible! everything was much better than we expected. We loved the feeling of being in the middle of nowhere and everyone made us feeling so incredibly special and gave us a unique insight. Over our game drives we managed to see all the big five plus some!!

Trip of a lifetime: Five countries, six camps, Vic Falls, Big Five plus more game

In June/July 2016 we undertook a trip to Southern Africa to fulfill a lifelong intention. We stayed at six camps, safari style, and had a great time. All of our expectations were met or even exceeded. For example, we never expected to see honey badgers or sitatunga, given the secretive nature of those species, but we did! All travel arrangements and connections worked smoothly, which is astonishing since we had several dozen transfers and meeting points; all of the connecting personnel were prompt, professional, and welcoming.

Faultless service, attention to detail and quality of accomodations.

The communications and service from Walter was excellent, and we were continuously fully informed. The information package and book received on arrival were excellent. We felt that we had been allocated carefully selected lodges at each camp and every detail met or exceeded our expectations.
The safari tour was wonderful, and a particular feature was the variety offered at each location which combined perfectly

Carolyn (AU)
The trip was sensational and tailored to our needs. Simply fantastic!

The care by Walter was great from planning to leaving Johannesburg. The accommodations were perfectly chosen. If after a few days you thought it could not be better, you were told otherwise. It was an increase every day, with the 3 days safari in the Kruger, including overnight in tree house, the grand finale.
I would book a trip anytime again at Safari Online.

Absolutely Perfect

I was already last year in South Africa and Zambia organized by Safari Online. It was a absolutely gorgeous trip. Everything was perfect. This was the reason I booked this year in May and June an new trip to South Africa, Namibia and Botswana. I got everything I expected. It was a dream again. I know I´m coming back.

Bernard (DE)
Exceptional service ensuring a wonderful holiday. Highly recommended

Attention to detail & service provided was first class, from our very first email to the last day of our trip. Walter went above and beyond to ensure that we were notified of any changes, even up to our last day with a change to our flight time, at short notice. The safari was so much more than expected, from the rustic to the exceptional, every camp was different in it’s own way and our highlights are hard to single out just one as each camp was great.

Cyndi and Dave (AU)
Karina was absolutely instrumental to our safari success.

Our experience with Safari Online was excellent. After becoming very frustrated trying to search for a safari destination on our own, we turned to Karina for help and she was a lifesaver. She responded to our requests promptly and gave us several options with links to each option; we ultimately chose Lukimbi. She then coordinated our flights to and from the property, arranged the drivers necessary to get us from the airport to the lodge and back again, and sent the appropriate paperwork to each of us to verify each step of the process. We had an amazing safari adventure at the lodge–the experience of a lifetime–and are so grateful for her help. We literally couldn’t have done it without her!
