An exclusive and serene lodge, Dulini Leadwood Lodge sits where the Sand and Mabrak Rivers meet, and is surrounded by a lush, green area of the Sabi Sands Reserve.
Wildlife can often be seen from the suites and viewing desk at Dulini Leadwood Lodge, as many animals wander through from the nearby Kruger National Park.
The lodge is shaded by large Leadwood and Jackalberry trees and offers guests solitude, privacy and a chance to connect with the wild nature around the rooms.
With only three guest suites at Dulini Leadwood Lodge, you can expect them to be some of the finest rooms in the region.
