Dulini Lodge

Tucked away in a private Sabi Sands concession, 6-suite Dulini Lodge is packed with luxuries & offers the perfect honeymoon hideaway.

Set in a concession within the exclusive Sabi Sands Private Reserve, Dulini Lodge offers the quintessential Sabi safari. It’s classic Big 5 country and renowned especially for its leopard sightings. Expert guides and eagle-eyed trackers take you into one of Africa’s most bio-diverse reserves on foot and by 4X4, conducting night drives and driving off-road for exceptional sightings.

Dulini Lodge is one of the smallest and most exclusive in the area. With only six suites on offer, it’s perfect for privacy. It’s also ideal for those who want the most out of their Sabi accommodation. Tucked into the riverbank, each suite has a viewing deck complete with sun loungers and a plunge pool. You’ll also enjoy internet access, air conditioning and a full en suite bathroom.

Its riverside setting means that wildlife is a constant feature at Dulini. Bird song dominates during the day, and it’s not unusual to see big cats or elephants at the seasonal Mabrak River below the lodge. Complete with pool and gym, this accommodation has a stellar reputation for personalised service and it makes the perfect honeymoon retreat. It also makes a wonderfully unique experience for a family with older children too.

Lodge Highlights:

  • Private concession setting within Sabi Sands
  • Exquisite & exclusive riverside setting
  • Peerless Big 5 game viewing
  • Small & intimate – ideal for honeymoons

Activities at Dulini Lodge

  • Morning & Afternoon Game Drives
  • Guided Nature Walks
  • Bird Watching
  • Night Drives

Dulini Lodge offers nothing less than grandstand seats for the Sabi experience. Set on the banks of a seasonal river within a private concession, the lodge offers game viewing from the comfort of its own armchairs and sun loungers. But Big 5 country awaits and you’ll enjoy early morning and late afternoon game drives in search of big cats, wild dogs and all the heavyweights – elephant, rhino, buffalo, giraffe and hippo. Late morning nature walks with your guide are recommended for those who want to discover the smaller but no less fascinating details. The bird watching is great all year round but quite exceptional during the rainy summer season.

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

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.

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.

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!!

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!

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.

Oisin (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.

Ulrike (DE)
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.

Silvio (CH)
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.

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.
