Braai nights occur every 3rd night or so and are a brilliant time to meet other guests and learn more about the bush. Not to be missed.

Dulini River Lodge is a fantastic option in the Sabi Sands Game Reserve that is about to get even better. This upcoming February (2018) the lodge has scheduled renovations to give their rooms a fresh new upgrade.


Anna Hearn (Staff)

We loved the location of Exeter River Lodge, set on a sweeping bend of a perennial river where game often comes down to drink and the lodge makes the most of this fabulous position with huge open sides and plenty of areas to sit and watch the world go by. Exeter started as a hunting lodge and game farm back in 1937 and still retains an atmosphere akin to that era although the safari lodge has been running since 1996. The rooms are nicely spaced and all overlook the view with lovely plunge pools which we were told were often frequented by thirsty elephants during the heat of the day an incredible photo opportunity. Exeter is perfect for families, and while children over the age of eight are accepted on game drives, the lodge also offers a childminding service to younger children, meaning parents can enjoy the wonderful game in this little corner of the Sabi Sands.

Exeter has a fantastic location within the Sabi Sands area of the Kruger National Park. Running right along the front of the Lodge is the Sand River and this presents excellent game viewing opportunities from the hotels main deck and pool as well as from the rooms.

The open plan cottages at Exeter each have their own plunge pools overlooking the river and made up in the trademark &Beyond mix of contemporary style and classic safari touches.

I was lucky enough to stay at the lodge on a Braai Night, or bbq night for the rest of us. After an incredible evening game drive which ended listening to two leopards calling to each other across a river bed whilst we enjoyed our sundowners we returned to a roaring fire and an outdoor table set up for us. We ate communally that evening chatting around the fire and sharing stories from safaris past. It was a hugely memorable occasion and a great opportunity to chat with rangers and staff at the lodge and learn more about what is such a fascinating part of the world.

Exeter River Lodge was the most luxurious place I have ever stayed.

The service (particularly from Christopher) was of the highest level, the food was excellent. I could not possibly recommend this place highly enough. It was the best 4 days of the trip by a mile.
