Game drives on this Sands Game Reserve safari are conducted in comfortable six seater open Land Rovers.
Keep warm in the chilly mornings as you head out with blankets and hot water bottles provided by the Dulini River Lodge staff. Some of the African wildlife to be seen include the famous Big Five, as well as rarer creatures like the Cheetah and Hyena. The late afternoon/evening game drives involve a tradition called a sundowner. This is a break to socialise over refreshments and to watch the setting sun. These late drives are ideal for spotting nocturnal wildlife like the African Civet, porcupines and hippos. The tracker-guides are knowledgeable and informative and because this is a private game lodge, guests can be taken off road for an intimate wildlife experience. There is also no strict return time.
The option of daily bush walks is offered by the field guides and will allow you to get up close to nature during this exclusive African safari experience. The tracker-guides will share their incredible knowledge of the surrounding trees and plants. These walks on foot are ideal for bird watching.
There are over 300 different bird species in the Sabi Sands area and some of the different bird species to keep an eye out for include the Grey Heron, Crested Francolin and Pied Kingfisher who frequent the waterholes and pools in the Sand River.
You will not go hungry (or thirsty) at Dulini, with world class food and drinks available at every turn. All meals are African-inspired, gorgeously plated and can be paired with a bottle from the extensive wine selection.
From breakfasts to high teas, you can enjoy the views as you dine on the viewing deck, which also overlooks the riverbed. Enjoy the option of your evening meals under the stars with braais (bbqs) in the open-air boma (outdoor enclosure).
Couples can amp up on romance with a candlelit dinner that never loses its appeal out here in the bush.
