    Dulini Outreach SABI SAND NATURE RESERVE, SOUTH AFRICA Learn About The esiDulini Trust Welcome to the esiDulini Community Trust The esiDulini Community Trust is a registered non-profit organisation reaching out to the communities surrounding the Sabi Sand Nature Reserve. Dulini Private Nature Reserve, is located in a world-renowned wildlife destination. ​ The luxurious lodges and rich game experience offered to guests from around the Globe are primarily staffed and serviced by people who reside in the neighbouring communities. ​ We thank you for caring and making a difference to our community! Together we bring positive change to many lives. "To be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others." -NELSON MANDELA Project Dignity The Dulini Family is passionate about supporting local women and bettering lives. And we extend this invitation to our guests, to join us in our endeavour. Alarmingly, up to 60% of rural African girls drop out of school because of menstruation; with a lack of access to basic sanitary wear leaving them socially, economically, and politically marginalised. Project Dignity works to empower pubescent schoolgirls from impoverished rural backgrounds to complete their education, by equipping them with a reliable supply of basic sanitary products. Statistics show that there are over 4500 female learners of pubescent age in the 29 schools of the 14 villages surrounding the Sabi Sand Nature Reserve. We aim to deliver dignity to every pubescent girl in our area by providing ongoing access to washable sanitary towels. For ZAR360 / $22, you can gift a young woman the dignity to stay in school and unlock her true potential. ​ *Stats: 4200 girls reached, 23 schools, 11 villages. ​ Support This Project The campus currently services approximately 400 school-aged learners per week, and is the foremost adult skills-training centre in the local rural area. We are extremely proud of the establishment of this digital learning model that offers access to a world-class education for rural students and scholars. Dumphries Digital Learning Campus Of 100 children that start school in South Africa, approximately 60 will reach their final year, 37 will graduate, and only 12 will access university. Almost none will be adequately equipped to participate in the fourth industrial revolution. ​ We are on a mission, in partnership with the Good Work Foundation, to change this. *Stats: 587 school learners weekly, 68 adult learners daily, 14 community educators. Support This Project Hlayisekani Nursing Home The Hlayisekani Nursing Homes offer residential and frail-care facilities for vulnerable elderly people in the rural villages of Huntington and Kildare, in the surrounding province of Mpumalanga. ​ The Hlayisekani Team provides daily 24-hour care for up to 120 permanent residents, with caregiver staff and a professional nurse on duty at all times. Hlayisekani’s mission is to provide the highest possible quality of care and support to its elderly residents, ensuring that each resident is afforded dignity, comfort and security in their golden years. ​ *Stats: 8 6 elderly residents, 28 nursing staff.

The Rejuvenation Of Dulini Moya In 2021, while global travel was on pause due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Dulini Moya under went a dramatic refurbishment. With both major structural changes and a beautiful soft refurbishment, the original Dulini lodge has been transformed into a safari destination that retains its much-loved classic safari style and charm, while infusing the guest experience with new levels of contemporary luxury and unsurpassed African hospitality. Welcome To The Dulini Family DULINI IS A PROUDLY FAMILY-RUN PARTNERSHIP OF THE DAVIS AND GARRATT CLANS. In October 2012, the Garratt and Davis families were privileged to realize a longstanding dream in the acquisition of Dulini. Their friendship was forged in the early 1990’s when Mick and Barbara Davis were first hosted as guests by Iain and Sue Garratt at the original Dulini Bush Camp. Their friendship is inspired by a love of the wilderness, a passion for excellence and the desire to make a significant contribution to conservation and the lives of those who journey with them. ​ Intrigued by the vision and success of Dulini, and their own passion for wildlife and conservation, Daniel and Marianne Gutknecht approached Iain to find them a similar opportunity. It was with their acquisition of Exeter in 2015, that the Dulini portfolio grew to include Dulini River and Dulini Leadwood.

The Sabi Sand Nature Reserve shares a 50 kilometre unfenced boundary with the world-famous Kruger National Park to the east, creating a vast wilderness in which animals are free to roam unhindered. ​ Guests at Dulini enjoy traversing rights over an impressive 10,500 hectares of this world-famous Reserve, including 16 kilometres of river access on both the north and south banks of the Sand River. Crucially, the biodiversity of this unique habitat includes all of the key ecological systems of the Sabi Sand Nature Reserve. With its collaborative approach to wildlife management, ecological monitoring and anti-poaching efforts, the Sabi Sand Nature Reserve is today renowned as one of South Africa’s most successful wilderness conservation areas. It is home to all of Africa’s famous Big Five, but also supports a remarkable ecosystem of fauna, flora and birdlife to be discovered in the company of our expert field guides and trackers. "You cannot leave Africa, Africa said. It is always with you, there inside your head. Our rivers run in currents in the swirl of your thumbprints; our drumbeats counting out your pulse; our coastline the silhouette of your soul.” – BRIDGET DORE "You cannot leave Africa, Africa said. It is always with you, there inside your head. Our rivers run in currents in the swirl of your thumb prints; our drum beats counting out your pulse; our coastline the silhouette of your soul.” - BRIDGET DORE For Dulini is truly a family affair, born of long-established friendships and a deep connection to the African wilderness. We look forward to when you will bring your family, to meet ours. Furthermore, Dulini employs more than 130 staff members, most of whom make their home in these local communities, and their steady income helps to support their large extended families. "We have made a conscious decision to operate smaller lodges with a lighter environmental footprint," explains Iain. "And, by operating with a high ratio of staff to guests we can maximise employment and training opportunities to play our part in uplifting the local communities." Connect With Us CLICK BOTTON RIGHT-HAND CORNER TO TURN SOUND ON The Word "Dulini" Dulini is the African name given to a termite mound that offers shelter to secretive creatures such as the aardvark. Many years ago, whilst exploring the rich riverine grove, the founders of the original site of Dulini Moya disturbed an aardvark resident to a nearby Dulini. Thus it became known as place of the antbear. More appropriately translated, Dulini is "a sanctuary or shelter" offering refuge to many wild creatures - from pangolins and warthogs, to pythons and aardvark. To us as the custodians of this special place, the name Dulini has evolved to mean place of sanctuary a sought-after hideaway. It is a place close to our hearts and we look forward to sharing it with you. Conservation Partnership The conservation of wildlife is achieved through the partnership between sustainable wildlife management, empowering local communities and the practice of ethical tourism. It is our endeavour to develop and deliver this partnership with excellence.

As of September 2021, all of our staff members have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19. In addition, a strict sanitising and social distancing protocol is adhered to at all times. Click here for more detailed information on our response to Covid-19. In partnership with a local healthcare provider, pre-departure PCR tests can be conducted at the lodge prior to your flight home if required at your time of travel. What is your safety protocol around Covid-19? The three Dulini lodges are located on a 10,500 hectare section of the Sabi Sand Nature Reserve. The Reserve shares an unfenced border with the world-famous Kruger National Park, in South Africa’s eastern Mpumalanga province. Click here to find us on Google Maps . ​ Where is Dulini situated? Dulini is conveniently located for both scheduled and private air services, as well as self-drive road access. Guests can fly direct from Johannesburg to the Sabi Sand Nature Reserve with Federal Air. These flights land at Ulusaba Airstrip, a private runway within the reserve, located a short 20 minute mini game drive from Dulini. A complimentary 4x4 transfer will be provided. ​ Alternatively, the nearest commercial airport is at Skukuza (airport code: SZK), a 60-minute road transfer from Dulini. Kruger-Mpumalanga International Airport (MQP), in the city of Mbombela, is a two-hour road transfer from the lodges. Transfers may be arranged at additional cost. Regional airline SA Airlink offers scheduled services from Johannesburg (JNB) and Cape Town (CPT) into Skukuza Airport and Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport.

Allow for 6-hours to drive from Johannesburg’s OR Tambo International Airport. Download self-drive directions here . How do I get to Dulini? The Sabi Sand Nature Reserve is a year-round safari destination, though each season has its unique character. The dry days of winter are considered the best for game viewing, with mild weather and less dense vegetation. Animals are also drawn to permanent water sources, providing excellent sightings. From October the summer rains, which fall in brief afternoon thundershowers, transform the landscape. This is perhaps the most scenic time of year, with lush vegetation and flowing rivers. An abundance of young antelope leads to high predator activity, and the arrival of migrant species from Europe and North Africa makes this the best time for birding. When is the best time to visit? We want our guests to be comfortable on safari, and there is no dress code at any of the Dulini lodges. Cotton clothing in neutral colours is recommended for game drives, and we advise dressing in layers to adjust to the changing temperatures throughout the day. Winter (May-September) in the bushveld can be cold, so pack a thermal fleece, jacket, hat and gloves. For bush walks, long trousers and comfortable walking shoes/hiking boots with long socks are recommended.

The service includes standard automatic machine washing and tumble drying. Dry cleaning and speciality laundry requirements are not available.

Malaria is found across the region, although the remote location of our lodges within the Sabi Sand Nature Reserve means that the risk of infection is low.
