My husband and I stayed at Dulini River Lodge for 5 nights for our first safari; it was an over-the-top experience! Absolutely incredible. You should just stop right here and book your trip ;) From the moment you arrive at Dulini River Lodge, the staff is ready and waiting to greet you. The common area of the lodge has fantastic...

A magnificent game lodge, lovely situated and excellent accommodation and divine food. The management and staff were fantastic as were the trackers and rangers. We saw, lions, leopards, elephants, zebras, giraffes, rhinoceros, hippopotamus, buffaloes, wild dogs and much much more. A lovely experience.

My wife, daughter and I stayed here for 3 nights and 4 days. That included 6 safaris. From the time we arrived to the time we left the hospitality was outstanding. We have travelled the world and this will go down as one of our best stops ever. The food was also beyond our expectations.

A stay at the Dulini River Lodge will ruin any other vacation experience. It begins the moment you drive up when you are warmly met with a cool towel to wipe the road dust off of your hands and face. Check-in is brief, easy and personal, simply describing the daily routine and safety rules. By the time this is finished,...

Leadwood Lodge is an intimate property nestled in the fork of the Sand and Mabrak Rivers in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve adjacent to Kruger National Park. Since there are no boundary fences between the Sabi Sand and the Kruger Park, the reserve benefits from the great diversity of animals found in one of the richest wildlife areas on the...

My wife and I spent three days at this lodge in September 2016. It is located in a wonderful location next to the Sand River in the Sabi-Sand private reserve area adjacent to Kruger national park. The setting along the river allows you to see animals all day long. The casitas are clean with an African theme. The rooms were...

Exeter no longer squeezes three passengers to a row on its game drive vehicles, to everybody's relief. We were met at the local airstrip by Craig in a brand new vehicle, complete with little luxuries like polar fleece rugs and ponchos for the cold mornings, and a set of binoculars, hand sanitiser and tissues in each console in the middle...
