Londolozi, a privately owned game reserve, operates on 16,000 hectares of pristine wilderness within the Sabi Sand Game Reserve located on the western border of Kruger National Park. Since there are no fences, the animals move freely and this makes Londolozi one of the most game-rich and game-diverse areas.
The Varty family named Londolozi from the Zulu word ‘to protect’, an ambitious conservation ethic that Londolozi embraces in its sensitivity to the natural world. As declared by the late Nelson Mandela, “Londolozi represents a model of the dream I cherish for the future of nature preservation in this country.”
The Big Five abound here but this reserve is particularly well known for its leopard sightings, earning a reputation as one of the best places in Africa to view these beautiful yet reclusive cats.
At Londolozi, the emphasis is on relaxation and rejuvenation of the body, mind and spirit, an effect it achieves admirably – no matter which camp is chosen.
Varty Camp, the symbolic heart and soul of Londolozi, has 10 chalets and yet retains a sense of exclusivity and privacy. The camp has a pleasingly down-to-earth quality and the emphasis on family heritage means that children are welcome.
Founders Camp, whose name honors past guests and staff who have contributed to building Londolozi Game Reserve, is an enchanting, intimate and child-friendly camp of 10 idyllic chalets boasting a warm and inviting classic style perfect for discerning travelers.
The three private suites at Pioneer Camp, the most secluded of Londolozi’s camps, have superb river views and are the perfect intimate backdrop for the camp’s celebration of the past and your luxury safari getaway.
