The Dulini Collection is proud to unveil the rejuvenated Dulini Moya, a five-star safari lodge in South Africa’s game-rich Sabi Sand Game Reserve.
The upgrade of Dulini Moya saw the communal lounge area entirely revamped. Walls were removed to create an airy open-sided space with bushveld views, while the new signature fireplace creates a welcoming area for guests to gather before and after twice-daily game drives. The intimate new Winter Lounge offers a quiet space for conversation and delving into the curated library and leads into a spacious new wine cellar capable of hosting private dinners. The creation of a semi-enclosed Dining Sala provides an all-weather venue overlooking the lodge’s indigenous gardens.
In the six guest suites, extensive renovations have raised the ceilings and enlarged both windows and sliding doors to let in more natural light, creating an airy sense of space. Private decks boast heated plunge pools, while floor-to-ceiling glass walls maximise the wilderness views throughout the suite. The décor revamp extends to the soft furnishings, with the addition of locally made textiles, luxuriant bedspreads and handcrafted artworks and furniture.
While the look and layout of Dulini Moya have been updated, the authentic African hospitality remains unchanged!

Savanna Private Game Reserve and The Dulini Collection will be extending their 2020 rate for bookings made now, until 31 August 2020 for travel anytime in 2021.
By holding the 2020 rate for 5 months of booking time, we hope that our core markets will not only take advantage of the rate hold, but will also make the most of the much weaken ZAR, to assist with closing new business.
In addition to this, we are introducing a special:
15% discount off contracted 2020 accommodation rates for travel from Aug 2020- 31 March 2021
Subject to the following terms:
• Travel dates from Aug 2020- 31 March 2021.
• Min stay 3 nights or more subject to availability.
• Cannot be combined with any other special offers.
• Applies to new bookings only
Due to the current global uncertainty, we do not feel we can implement firm 2021 rates or policies at this time and will review at a later stage. We will also gladly offer date changes to any of these new 2021 bookings, should this Pandemic continue into 2021.
For the remainder of 2020, The Dulini Collection reserves the right to operate from one lodge, due to logistics and safety for our staff and travellers, unless booking demand dictates otherwise.

The Dulini Collection is proud to announce the exciting transformation which has taken place on the bank of the beautiful Sand River.
Dulini River Lodge – The metamorphosis of this Sabi Sand favourite following a full remodelling, offers a renewed level of chic safari style.
On arrival under the canopy of ancient trees, a fine balance is achieved between lush landscaping and the splendour of the African bush. Meandering boardwalks lead the eye to the river beyond where an intimate main lodge offers stylish spaces for relaxing and dining with breath-taking views.
River Suites: The magnificence of the riverine setting now sweeps into every suite with extensive enhancements including panoramic glass panelling throughout. Every suite is significantly extended to a lavish 150m2. A stylish synergy between organic elegance and modern convenience epitomizes the new bathrooms flowing to outdoor showers.
The additions of a superb wine cellar and a state of the art gym with training lap pool are further additions designed to woo the guest beyond the exhilaration of the spectacular game drives and delicious cuisine.

Already completed! Not to be left out, the stunning Dulini Lodge has already undergone some upgrades during 2017, including replacing all of the soft furnishings throughout the lodge and suites, replacing the wooden flooring within the rooms, new external decking in all suites and upgrading the plunge pools and outside area.
We are very excited about the forthcoming plans to upgrade and refurbish the three Dulini Collection Lodges in the coming months, so that each displays the high standards that the trade and guests expect from the Dulini brand. Here are some of the details you need to know but please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like further information:
The new safari vehicles have already arrived and are fully equipped with binos, ponchos, camera mounts etc. We are currently upgrading all the soft refurbishments throughout the lodge and the rooms and putting the finishing touches to the landscaping which is taking place around the lodge. Looking to the future months, all the plunge pools to be heated by the end of January 2017 and the Leadwood entrance will be upgraded by the end of February 2017. As the work is largely cosmetic, there will be no closure dates for the lodge. Don’t worry, no guests will be disturbed whilst we are very quietly continuing with our work (but they will be impressed with the finished product!).
Similar to Leadwood Lodge, the smart new safari vehicles are in place and being enjoyed by our guests. And the soft refurbishments are also well under way, with some attention to the landscaping surrounding the lodge. Its going to make a huge difference to the main lodge area and we look forward to sharing some images with you. The plunge pools will also be heated by the end of January – in plenty of time for our ‘winter’ guests. The majority of works to be carried out at River Lodge will take place from 18th February when the lodge will close for 6 weeks, until 31st March. Its an exciting project and guests will be enjoying brand new bathrooms which are going to be totally rebuilt, extending to an outside shower. We will be closing down 2 suites entirely so that the lodge will run at a maximum of 6 suites (and will have the knock on effect of only allowing 6 people per vehicle). A gym and lap pool is being built along with a walk in wine cellar and an upgraded lodge entrance. Watch this space for more photographs and information!
To maintain our high standards and to ensure that all three lodges are enjoying a ‘facelift’ at the same time, Dulini is replacing all its soft furnishings, which is currently well under way. The wooden floors in all the bedrooms will be replaced as well as the external decking. To allow for this, there will be a short closure of two weeks between 13 June and 1 July 2017.
We very much look forward to sharing photographs with you when it is all completed!
