Dulini Leadwood Lodge
Why we like it
- Adjacent to the world renowned Kruger National Park
- Intimate 'big five' sightings - including the elusive leopard
- Only four suites - perfect for families and parties of friends travelling together to have the lodge exclusively
- Off road driving on over 24,700 acres of private game reserve
- Each suite has an outdoor shower and a private plunge pool
- Offering a private bush experience with gracious architecture and interiors
Returning from the night drive to discover champagne in a hanging bucket illuminated by paraffin lamps outside the suite was a lovely surprise and that little extra touch that added to the special ambience of the lodge.
Joanne Swinton's detailed knowledge of South Africa has been invaluable and her enthusiasm to respond to our needs is greatly appreciated.

Dulini Leadwood Lodge is a private paradise offering an exclusive bush experience. The four suites are situated in total solitude, none of which overlooking each other.
The construction of the camp means it is perfect for a family or group who which to enjoy a safari together whilst having a quiet and peaceful suite to retire to.
Wildlife at Leadwood Lodge is diverse and plentiful, The Big Five is well represented in the Sabi Sands and other rare animals, such as the cheetah and hyena are often sighted.
