Beneath the shade of ancient Ebony and Leadwood trees, the tranquil haven of Dulini is enigmatically embraced by its rich riverine setting. 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.
The main lodge, resplendent with deep couches and contemporary African accents spills onto the cool veranda, offers views to the wilderness beyond.
A welcoming ambience of laid back luxury creates a place of conversation and laughter, while the extensive library of books accommodates those more inclined to quieter contemplation.
Six exquisite thatched suites grace the banks of the riverbed. The spacious accommodation with private plunge pools and interiors that epitomise romance, with canopies of mosquito nets and beautiful bathrooms. Each suite offers a private view of the riverbed, seamlessly integrating the grandeur of nature and elegance of décor.
The movement of game through the trails around the camp may be enjoyed from the cantilevered deck, tented by a leafy Jackalberry. It is not uncommon to secretly witness the passage of an elusive leopard from this vantage point. The deck also offers an alternative venue for enjoying the rich fare at meal times.
Traditionally known as The Boma, this truly African dining venue boasts a ceiling of stars and a roaring fire. It is around the Boma fire that friendships are sealed and all African bush yarns are spun – grandiose tales of fearsome beasts and great escapes are always more memorable when shared around the camp fire.
Every meal at Dulini is a celebratory African Affair, uniquely infused with timeless flavours, passionately prepared in reinvented tradition and lavishly served in wondrous settings.

It is an African custom to return to one’s home bearing gifts of the land to which one has journeyed. The Gift Gallery will accommodate this tradition and package purchases in Dulini style to remind you of your African sojourn.
