Sabi Sands Game Reserve

Dulini River Lodge


Riverside suites

Sharing a boundaryless border with the legendary Kruger, but with far more exclusivity, the Sabi Sands is generally regarded as the best private game reserve in South Africa for spotting wildlife.

Dulini River Lodge is a luxurious, intimate spot with six riverside suites, each with a lounge area, deck, outdoor showers and a plunge pool looking out over the meandering Sand River from which the reserve takes its name.

Meals are set up in a variety of exciting locations around the lodge, in the bush, boma or deck lookout points, with wildlife often seen wandering along the banks.
