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, 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, with views to the wilderness beyond.

Each suite offers a, private view of the riverbed, seamlessly integrating the grandeur of nature and elegance of décor.
Dulini Lodge Activities
The traffic of game frequenting the trails through and beyond the camp and riverbed may be enjoyed from the cantilevered deck tented by a leafy Jackalberry. It is not uncommon to secretly witness the passage of an elusive leopard from this vantage point. The deck also offers an alternative venue for enjoying the rich fare at meal times.
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.
Our 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, we will have something special in our cellar. Guests are invited to peruse our 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.
A collection of bespoke curios and safari essentials are available for your temptation. It is an African custom to return to one’s home bearing gifts of the land to which one has journeyed. The Safari Shop will accommodate this tradition and package purchases in Dulini style to remind you of your African sojourn.
