Beneath the shade of ancient Ebony and Leadwood trees, the tranquil haven of Dulini is enigmatically embraced by its rich riverine setting. There is a restorative quality to the peaceful atmosphere of the camp, set on the banks of the Mabrak River. The symphony of bird song and the passage of wildlife add to the allure of Dulini. The main lodge, resplendent with deep couches and contemporary African accents spills onto the cool veranda, grant views to the wilderness beyond. A welcoming ambiance of laid back luxury creates a place of conversation and laughter, while the extensive library of books accommodates those more inclined to quieter contemplation. Six exquisite thatched suites grace the banks of the riverbed. The spacious accommodations with private plunge pools and interiors epitomize romance, with canopies of mosquito nets and beautiful bathrooms. Each suite offers a private view of the riverbed, seamlessly integrating the grandeur of nature and elegant décor.

Enjoy the view of game frequenting the trails through and beyond the camp and riverbed when dining on the viewing deck, which is tented by a leafy Jackal berry. From this vantage point, it is not uncommon to secretly witness the passage of an elusive leopard.
Traditionally known as “the boma”, this truly African dining venue boasts a ceiling of stars and a roaring fire. It is around the Boma fire that friendships are sealed and all African bush yarns are spun – grandiose tales of fearsome beasts and great escapes are always more memorable when shared around the camp fire.
Game drives at Dulini Private Game Reserve are accompanied by professional and passionate rangers and trackers who have a wealth of knowledge to unravel the intricate nuances of the African bush.

These characters will win your heart with heroic stories, wow you with phenomenal bush tales, and leave you awestruck by their knowledgeable interpretation of the African wild.
The lodge’s wine cellar boasts a collection of South Africa’s finest wines. Whether sunning at the pool, resting in the shade of the Leadwoods, or enjoying an intimate dinner, there will be something special in the cellar just for the occasion. Guests are invited to peruse the wine list at the time of reservation and to let us know if there are any wines that they would like us to procure that are not currently in stock. Every effort will be made to have these requests available in time for your visit.
A well-equipped gym caters to your need for physical exertion when the African pot begins to pad the hips and you have had adequate time relaxing on your deck.
