The beautifully appointed suites boast generous plunge pools, shady decks and classic interiors that celebrate the signature style of the Reserve.

The impact of your stay:

  • Your stay at Dulini Moya includes essential conservation fees aiding the preservation of the Kruger National Park, home to critically endangered species. The lodge actively contributes to the park’s conservation by maintaining an in-house anti-poaching team and participating in collaborative rhino dehorning initiatives. The systematic dehorning, similar to trimming fingernails, is a painless process that safeguards rhinos from poaching threats, as their horns grow back over time.
  • Your stay offers chances to directly engage in supported conservation efforts through research participation or visiting projects. Ongoing research covers leopards, elephants, and honey badgers. The lodge is also actively involved in a bee conservation initiative. During game drives, guides record sightings to monitor animal movement and numbers, sharing this data with Panthera, a local non-profit focused on big cat conservation.
  • In South Africa, gender inequality poses challenges to the education system. Up to 60% of rural African girls drop out due to limited access to sanitary wear, leading to social, economic, and political marginalisation. In response, Dulini Moya’s Project Dignity empowers girls from impoverished rural backgrounds to complete their education by providing a steady supply of washable and reusable sanitary products

Places to combine with Dulini Moya


Cape Town

The Silo
With sweeping views of the Atlantic, Table Mountain as a backdrop, and the buzz of a working harbour, the Victoria and Albert Waterfront is one of Cape Town’s prime locations. It is here that you’ll find The Silo. The grain silo was the tallest building in Sub-Saharan Africa when it was built in 1924, and the luxury hotel is located in the former elevator tower. The creative brain behind the project is that of prominent British designer and architect Thomas Heatherwick, whose iconic works include the Cauldron for the London 2012 Olympic Games and London’s new Routemaster bus. The Silo occupies six floors above the Zeitz MOCAA Museum of Contemporary Art Africa. A partnership between the V&A Waterfront and Jochen Zeitz, this cultural institution focuses on exhibiting cutting-edge contemporary art from Africa and its diaspora, with the Zeitz Collection forming its founding exhibition. Taking its place on Cape Town’s skyline, the hotel is a beacon of modern design. The industrial aesthetics remain with the addition of pillowed glazing panels which bulge outwards as if gently inflated. At night, this transforms the building into a glowing lantern. Each of the 28 rooms, which include a magnificent penthouse suite, are individually designed and strike the balance between industrial, stylish and comfortable. The creative team have been busy sourcing pieces from Cape Town and across the world, to ensure each room tells its own story without detracting from the natural beauty of the city, which can be seen through the 18-foot windows. Another key feature is the huge grain-shaped atrium carved out of the interior of the grain silos. The art in the hotel is in keeping with the collections in the museum. Appreciate the 360 degree panoramic views from the restaurant, champagne bar and glass swimming pool located on the rooftop while casting your eye across the ocean, city bowl and mountains. There is also a café, piano bar, spa and fitness centre and when you want to go exploring, the Waterfront itself offers a wealth of shops, restaurants and bars.
