Why a South African Safari Should Be on Top of Your List

Why a South African Safari Should Be on Top of Your List

Diversity

South Africa is a land of contrast, and there are few other countries in Africa (and the world over in fact) where you can enjoy the same scenic and cultural diversity, not to mention diverse experiences with wildlife and natural beauty. South Africa offers the best of both a real ‘African’ style safari along with gorgeous coastlines waiting to be explored along the magnificent Garden Route, some World Heritage Sites, mountains and forests. You’d be missing out to overlook the range of experiences a safari here offers.

Value

A safari in South Africa is not merely a luxury travel experience. It is an investment in yourself. You will be making memories to last you a lifetime and enjoying the exhilaration of immersing yourself in all this beautiful country has to offer. Favourable exchange rates make South Africa a highly sought-after destination among Foreign International Travellers simply because of the calibre of experience that can be enjoyed so affordably. 

People

It’s been said that people make a place and a visit to South Africa will prove this to you with each return trip. Those who come here are overwhelmed by the warmth and friendliness of the South African people – from the 5-star lodge staff to tour guides and the average man or woman on the street. South Africans are notorious for being welcoming and approachable, and it’s this vibe that will make you want to come back again and again. 

The Scenery

Pictures are worth a thousand words (and videos perhaps ten thousand!), but you will find that the opportunities to drink in and capture, incredible scenery – much of which just cannot be found anywhere else in the world, is a massive drawcard for a South African safari. Keen on photographing the Big 5? No problem. How about a sunrise snap on top of Table Mountain, one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World? We can arrange it.  Interested in Whale Watching in pristine waters to take in the glory of these creatures in their natural habitat? You can do that too. The memories will not only be indelibly burned into your heart and mind, but you will have ample photographic and video evidence with which to amaze and entice your friends and family back home when you share them. 

The Cuisine

South Africa is a mecca for foodies, and you will find that no matter what your preferences, catering in this country is sure to tickle your taste-buds at every turn. Explore traditional South African cuisine around a boma at your safari lodge in front of a roaring bonfire or dig into dishes you’re more familiar with if you prefer. Again, the diversity of the country and its cultures means there quite literally is something that appeals to everyone on the menu. And when you book your dream safari with us, you can rest assured that your every dietary requirement will be met – with creativity and enthusiasm.

3 Reasons to Indulge in a Safari at Dulini

3 Reasons to Indulge in a Safari at Dulini

3 Luxurious Lodges to Choose From

The Dulini Collection offers something unique in that each of its three lodges cater to the needs of the sophisticated traveller but although each situated adjacent to each other, they are all three distinguishable and suited to differing tastes and requirements.

Leadwood Lodge for example, is the perfect secluded cocoon of African opulence for newly-weds or for those who prize privacy above all. The three magnificent thatched suites it offers are ideal for couples or for exclusive group experiences as they have been carefully distanced from each other to ensure that guests more than comfortably avoid encroaching on one another during their stay. Should groups require slightly more room along with sole use of the lodge, there is a fourth suite at their disposal made available on the premise that up to 8 guests then enjoy the safari vehicle at a time – (as opposed to the lodge’s usual policy of taking no more than 6 guests on a vehicle at a time). This policy means that you have ample opportunity to get to know your highly knowledgeable guides and to fully immerse yourself in your bush experience.

Dulini Lodge is the main lodge and also offers six exquisite thatched suites on the banks of the Mabrak River. Each suite is elegantly decorated in understated modern African safari style and comes with its own private plunge pool, perfect for a cooling dip during balmy bush days.

River Lodge is the third lodge on the reserve with its own unique look and feel described as exuding ‘…a sense of indulgence true to the long-standing safari tradition.’ The elevated positions of the suites on the banks of the Sand River make for spectacular views over the river towards the savannah beyond.

Privacy and Exclusivity for the Sophisticated Traveller

Each of these lodges cater for the discerning safari guest, but there can be no higher praise than from discerning guests themselves whose reviews echo with descriptions such as ‘exceptional’, ‘world-class’ and ‘life-changing!’. We are of the opinion that when your work speaks for yourself, you don’t interrupt – so we let the reviews of our safari guests speak for themselves.

Location, location, location

You’ve heard it so often that it may sound cliché, but the location of the Dulini Collection is what makes it something truly special. It is not unheard of to quietly witness leopard crossing the riverbed from the convenient vantage of the viewing deck for example. Reputed to be one of Africa’s finest safari destinations, the Sabi Sand Game Reserve is home to Dulini and with no boundary fences between Sabi Sand and the Kruger National Park, a great diversity of wildlife is found here, including the Big Five: lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino.

Aside from the incredible opportunity to see these animals in their natural habitat, you will also be treated to all the five-star comforts of Dulini including their on-site wine cellar, fully-equipped gym and at the end of each day you can relax around the fire in the boma under African skies to enjoy sumptuous fare prepared by their highly accomplished and creative chefs. You may also wish to indulge in a little customary gift shopping as is the African tradition, in the Dulini safari shop. 50% of the profits from purchases made here are directly donated to the EsiDuini Community Trust which helps to alleviate poverty in the area.
