Dulini is driven by the mission to conserve the untamed wilderness. Through sustainable, eco-tourism, it is our intention to leave a legacy of growing biodiversity. This vision is only possible in partnership with neighbouring communities.

Alongside creating unforgettable safari memories for guests, Dulini is a firm believer in supporting and fostering community upliftment. The esiDulini Community Trust is a registered non-profit organisation reaching out to the communities surrounding the Sabi Sand Nature Reserve and we believe we have a responsibility to extend our hand to our neighbours who live rural lifestyles far from the reach of government spending and service provision.

We thank you for caring and making a difference to our community! Together we bring positive change to many lives.

Empowers Africa has partnered with esiDulini Community Trust in order to provide a cost-effective solution to fundraising in the United States by acting as their fiscal sponsor. Any donations made here will be granted to esiDulini Community Trust.

Empowers Africa uses Stripe to process credit card donations. Stripe has very stringent security rules which may lead to declined credit card transactions.

esiDulini Community Trust Campaigns

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.

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.

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.

We are on a mission, in partnership with the Good Work Foundation, to change this.

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.
