There is a restorative quality to the peaceful atmosphere of the camp, on the banks of the Mabrak River. The symphony of bird song and the passage of wildlife add to the allure of Dulini.
Luxurious lodge: The main lodge, resplendent with deep couches and contemporary African accents spills onto the cool veranda, with views to the wilderness beyond.

Game drives at Dulini Private Game Reserve are taken by professional and passionate rangers and trackers, who have a wealth of knowledge to unravel the intricate nuances of the African bush. Many of them grew up in the area and thus, their knowledge of the environment is unrivaled. All of them are professionally qualified to manage the rigorous responsibilities of the safari experience. It is these characters that will win your heart with heroic stories, wow you with phenomenal bush tales and leave you awestruck by their knowledgeable interpretation of the African wild.
The Dulini day begins at dawn. An early morning game drive ensures that you catch the tail end of the night exploits of nocturnal creatures and inspires you with the new day vigour of the bush, still veiled in dew. This is an essential two to three hour safari experience that ends in a lavish breakfast back at camp.
The option of daily bush walks is offered by our field guides. This serves to highlight those aspects of nature one may miss on a drive and expose you to the energy and excitement of being immersed in the environment.
An extended day of relaxation in the tranquillity of the Dulini setting, allows you the opportunity to share bush tales, record memories in your safari journal, indulge in the culinary temptations of our chef and simply unwind and be restored.
The excitement of the safari begins again after tea when the intensity of the African heat begins to subside. This game drive coincides with the close of business for daytime game and the emerging routines of nocturnal beasts on the prowl. There is nothing quite as enthralling as pursuing the hunt of the big cats. The excitement of each drive is interrupted by refreshment breaks, to accommodate any call of the wild and revitalize you with a sundown cocktail.
