The Dulini collection is proud to unveil the rejuvenated Dulini Moya, a five-star safari lodge in South Africa’s game-rich Sabi Sand Game Reserve.
“The lockdowns brought about by the global pandemic were an enormous challenge for everyone in our industry, but we decided to be bold and use this as an opportunity to reimagine Dulini Moya and build a stronger foundation for the future as international travel returns,” explains co-founder Iain Garratt. “We look forward to sharing the new lodge with both our partners in the trade, and our many loyal guests who return to Dulini year after year.”
The upgrade of Dulini Moya saw the communal lounge area entirely revamped. Walls were removed to create an airy open-sided space with bushveld views, while the new signature fireplace creates a welcoming area for guests to gather before and after twice-daily game drives. The intimate new Winter Lounge offers a quiet space for conversation and delving into the curated library and leads into a spacious new wine cellar capable of hosting private dinners. The creation of a semi-enclosed Dining Sala provides an all-weather venue overlooking the lodge’s indigenous gardens.
In the six guest suites, extensive renovations have raised the ceilings And Enlarged both windows and sliding doors to let in more natural light, Creating an airy sense of space. Private decks boast heated plunge pools, while floor-to-ceiling glass walls maximise the wilderness views throughout the suite. The décor revamp extends to the soft furnishings, with the addition of locally made textiles, luxuriant bedspreads and handcrafted artworks and furniture. While the look and layout of Dulini Moya have been updated, the authentic African hospitality remains unchanged.
“The true character of Dulini Moya is not in the bricks and mortar, but the staff that create the magic of any safari,” says Garratt. “Our wonderful staff remain the heart of Dulini, and it’s why we have named this lodge Dulini Moya, inspired by the Tsonga word for ‘spirit’.”
All staff at Dulini Moya have been fully vaccinated (J&J/Pfizer) against Covid-19. A strict protocol of sanitising and social distancing is adhered to at all times
