Possibly the best-kept secret in the Sabi Sand Reserve
Overall rating
5/5

Small and relatively unknown, Dulini’s luxury camps have a genuinely exclusive and personal feel, with none of the ostentation of the Sabi Sand Reserve’s more famous hangouts. This section of the reserve is owned and managed by &Beyond, a company I greatly respect for its outstanding record in conservation tourism. River Lodge is small and peaceful, on a lovely stretch of the Sand River; Dulini Lodge is an absolute gem, modern but stuffed with comfortable furniture and oddments to add a homely feel; Leadwood Lodge is even smaller and more luxurious, with elegant contemporary styling.

The camps are situated on a fairly narrow strip of territory but, like all the smaller sections of the Sabi Sand Reserve, it’s unfenced, with animals and vehicles alike free to explore further afield. In theory this means sharing Big Five sightings with guests from other lodges when you’re out on a game drive with a local Shangaan tracker, but in practice I found that other vehicles don’t really spoil the experience at all.
