Dulini Moya is a firm favourite of ours, offering a luxurious and small safari lodge within the Sabi Sand Game Reserve which is renowned for having some of the best game-viewing in South Africa. There are no restricting fences between the game reserve and the Kruger National Park, enabling wildlife to roam freely. The Sand River, which flows all year round, is a major source of water for the animals in the reserve and is home to hippo and crocodiles, while the thick reed beds are a haven for many species of water birds and weavers. The reserve is also particularly famous for its leopard sightings.
The six spacious stone and thatch cottages of Dulini Moya grace the banks of the Mabrak River, in the western corner of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve. As one of only 12 guests, you will feel instantly at home in this quiet retreat. The beautifully appointed suites boast generous plunge pools, shady decks and classic interiors that celebrate the signature style of the Reserve. From the privacy of their own plunge pools, guests enjoy watching game explore the dry riverbed just a few metres away.
The guest area is an elegant space filled with big welcoming sofas and interesting African sculptures. Dine under the ancient jackalberry tree where skilled chefs serve delicious Pan-African meals, or steal away for a romantic candlelit dinner in the well-stocked wine cellar.
The lodge offers game drives as well as bush walks with experienced rangers and trackers to explore the finer details of your surroundings.
