The deeply atmospheric Dulini Lodge highlights the grandeur of the
African bush with its quiet style and elegance. The surrounding grove
of ebony trees is reflected in the dark wooden accents of the
interiors. Six stone cottages nestle among the trees, with private
decks and decadent plunge pools facing out toward the river bed, with
its green banks and quirky suspension bridge. Huge glass windows let
you gaze out onto the shady banks directly from the comfort of your
bed, sheltered by gracefully draped mosquito nets.
With its thatched roofs, sandy hues and
casual elegance, Dulini Lodge offers a slice of African life dished up
with classic panache. Set on the banks of the seasonal Mabrak River,
this tranquil retreat offers tantalising glimpses of the calm rhythms
of the bush, with leafy views opening up to surprise scenes of the
nearby riverbed and the animal life centred round it. Luscious lunches
set out in the Lodge’s picturesque grounds tempt and delight.
Spend a quiet afternoon swapping stories from your morning game drive
in the classic interiors of the guest sitting room or indulge in some
more game viewing of the quiet kind from the deep comfort of an
armchair on the guest deck. Or simply get away from it all with a long
soak in a deep claw-footed bathtub, while huge glass windows keep you
close to the nature outside.
At Dulini Lodge, it is our passion to

with our guests. Our highly trained rangers and trackers will do their
very utmost to delight our guests with a selection of the following
