The Sabi Sand Game Reserve is world-renown big five safari destination in the Greater Kruger, and is a major drawcard for a host of international guests seeking a discerning safari experience with a focus on luxury accommodation and wild, wild surrounds. Sabi Sand is famed for its leopard sightings and has an abundance of drainage lines, access to water and is rich with food sources. The Sabi Sand is the perfect place for viewing big cats.
The Londolozi Private Game Reserve offers guests a choice of five safari accommodation options, all with the same access to 34,000 acres of untamed landscape. The format of a private safari experience is standard, but may vary from lodge to lodge.
Morning wake-up happens at sunrise and a guided game drive takes place in an open-topped game viewer. Late afternoon drives combined with sundowner sessions take place at roughly 15:30 – 16:00 and evenings are spent dining under the stars and around the campfire in the boma area. Londolozi employs only the top guides and rangers that excel at tracking and sharing their wildlife knowledge with guests.
Camps at Londolozi vary in price according to quality and size. The Londolozi Private Granite Suites are fit for royalty – and the thing that most delights and enthrals us is the outdoor bath perched on the private wooden viewing deck. Each suite has its very own heated swimming pool and is cocooned by tumbling granite boulders. Sounds like heaven? It is !
Londolozi Pioneer Camp and Tree Camp are the next level in luxury compared to the contemporary villa style granite suites. The 6 suites at Tree Camp are hugged by a canopy of leadwood trees and provide an idyllic escape with designer flair. While the outside provides the rustic, the interior provides a splash of Hollywood with its Ralph Lauren wallpaper and private swimming pools. Pioneer Camp is on par with the Tree Camp but offers a completely different atmosphere and is one for the die-hard romantics. It’s classic safari style with elegance shrouded in history – think bygone era meets modern grace.
* Children under the age of 6 aren’t allowed at these elite camps unless booked on an exclusive only basis.
Londolozi Varty Camp and Founders Camp are the largest camps and ideal for families. These two child-friendly camps have a unique covered skywalk that interlinks rooms without any danger from the elements outside. Camps accommodate children 6 years and older, and families will delight in the knowledge that elephants can be viewed in the riverine below. Founders Camp has an elevated wooden deck where yoga classes are held – the perfect place for a bit of peace in the wilderness, and a provides a welcome break from your travelling group.
Londolozi Varty Camp is the original camp and the heart of Londolozi – it’s earthy, bohemian and reflects the essence of the owners. Rooms have private swimming pools and viewing decks that give rise to expansive views over the private game reserve.
In terms of activities, there are standard game drives, a wellness centre, photographic safari, children’s safaris, and host of other activities that can be tailor-made to suit your group.
Londolozi is the prime destination for honeymooners, families and adventure seekers that have an extensive budget. Londolozi for the win !
