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.

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.
