Dulini Private Game Reserve
Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve
Safari at its most sophisticated, the Dulini Collection, Sabi Sands consists of three lodges set in the eponymous game reserve next to Kruger. Two of the lodges Leadwood and River Lodge are river-facing while Dulini is an intimate colonial-style property. Luxurious stone huts with thatched roofs offer six elegant suites serving up quintessential safari chic - exposed-beam ceilings, wood floors and free-standing baths. They also sport complimentary Wi-Fi, mosquito nets and furnished decks. Soak in a heated private plunge-pool in your suite with a glass of fizz and let in the magic of Africa.
From the cold-towel and ginger tea welcome to warmly wishing you off, the team here are superb. They deftly conjure surprise experiences such as picnics with Indian rugs and cushions on a dry riverbed accompanied by a fully-stocked ice-box – bliss.
There are no fences between Kruger National Park and Sabi Sands Game Reserve so wildlife roams freely in this vast natural environment. Exhilarating animal sightings are aplenty here, from mating rhinos to mynah birds sharing your outdoor shower.
Like all great travellers, I have seen more than I remember, and remember more than I have seen.
