A Luxury Stay at Londolozi Private Game Reserve
Situated on the banks of the Sand River in the heart of the Sabi Sands Game Reserve, Londolozi Private Game Reserve offers visitors an authentic African wilderness experience beyond compare. Londolozi is a family-run business that has been in operation for more than eighty years and is one of the pioneers of South Africa’s ecotourism industry. In recognition of its commitment to exceptional service, luxurious accommodation and fine cuisine, Londolozi has been accorded Relais et Chateaux status – the first game reserve in the world to be given this prestigious international rating.
Londolozi offers accommodation in four camps and a set of luxurious suites – Tree Camp, Pioneer Camp, Varty Camp, Founders Camp and Granite Private Suites – each beautifully fitted out and private, and each with stunning views of the natural surroundings. The wellness center, Londolozi Life, offers a variety of personal services including yoga – indoors or outdoors, for beginners and intermediate – as well as Swedish massage, aromatherapy and reiki healing. The fitness expert at Londolozi Life introduces guests to his unique fitness routines that are inspired by animal agility.
On expertly guided game drives visitors can expect to see large breeding herds of elephant and buffalo roaming throughout Londolozi. Lion and white rhino numbers at Londolozi are amongst the highest that have been recorded on the entire African continent. As impressive as the game viewing opportunities are, Londolozi is perhaps best known for the incredible bond which has developed between ranger trackers and wild free ranging leopards. This special relationship between man and leopard has drawn these magnificent, naturally elusive, creatures out into the open, allowing visitors to observe them in their natural habitat. Certainly, visitors to this well-managed reserve agree that viewing the leopards of Londolozi is an unforgettable experience.
Other activities and facilities available at Londolozi include interpretive walks, Londolozi Cubs for children, a well stocked library, the John Varty cinematography center, swimming pools at each camp and visiting the Shangaan Cultural Village, which includes a crèche, clinic, adult learning center and craft and design center.
The name Londolozi is taken from the Zulu word for “protect” and means “protector of all living things”. In keeping with its name, Londolozi is recognized internationally for its progressive policy on wildlife rehabilitation and land management, as well as its positive involvement in local communities. The expertly trained staff at Londolozi view the reserve as their home and welcome guests with warm hospitality.
