Sabi Sands Game Reserve

“Beautiful facilities”

Amazing accommodation, food and service! Whether you want to relax or enjoy the safari rides and want to be pampered this is the place! From the moment you arrive you are catered to and the staff makes sure you enjoy your stay. The food was excellent and so are your accommodation. The safari drives were a lot of fun our guide and tracker did a great job! Thank you, Mac and Prince! Mac is a wealth of information and Prince is a great tracker, he even spotted a snake in a tree at night. I would highly recommend staying here and allow time to just relax and enjoy the view and wildlife.

“Well beyond my expectations... just amazing.”

This place is simply amazing – from the staff to the rooms, and the abundance of wildlife we saw on each game drive. I set a goal of photographing Rhino, Leopard and Greater Kudu. Within the first several hours of our first game drive, that goal had been achieved. We opted for a private game vehicle for greater flexibility to photograph the wildlife. We had an excellent Ranger / Tracker pairing with Jonah and Tryone. Both did an excellent job and I would certainly request them again when returning to the lodge. To have a Ranger/Guide understand photography was very helpful and they were extremely accommodating in getting us to our photography goals.

“Great Place to Stay in Sabi Sands”

Dulini River Lodge is an outstanding Safari Lodge in the incredible Sabi Sands area. The common areas in the Lodge and the Rooms are spectacular with amazing views of wildlife on the Dulini River. We had incredible game drives with Justin and Christophe who were both excellent guides. And the hotel staff was also great. An excellent place to stay.

“Over the Top Experience”

This trip will always be remembered as one of our best. The lodge is wonderful and the service was beyond excellent. Our accommodations were very private and very comfortable, with the outdoor shower and the plunge pool who could ask for more. Our tracker Martin and our ranger Blaine were the BEST. We saw the big five in 2 days and every other animal you could imagine. This was an experience of a lifetime and we feel we had the very best of everything.
