Londolozi was simply a life-changing experience. Saw so many animals in their native environment, which was in the middle of a 2 year drought and in the springtime the temperature was 105 F. The guides on our twice-daily observation tours are well educated about the animals, how they feed and survive in the bush. The accommodations are first rate and...

I had wanted to visit this almost "mythical" place for the last 25 years, but somehow never managed to. I was not to be disappointed when I found it different from how I had pictured it in my imagination. We stayed at the small Pioneer camp, with just three units. Our apartment (not "room"...) was spacious, well furnished and with...

Everything at Pioneer Camp was perfection. This was the third stop on our honeymoon and even though every place we stayed was fantastic, Pioneer Camp blew everywhere else out of the water. Tayla, the camp manager, was fantastic. Just as a small example, when she learned that we and another couple staying at the camp were into craft beers, she...

We feel as if we won the lottery with the guide and tracker and all of the wonderful staff at Londolozi. Shawn, our Ranger, was so incredibly knowledgable and it was so obvious how much he genuinely loved what he did (and was so great at it). Elmon is literally the rock star of trackers--he got out of the car...

Now this is a place that oozes charm, sophistication, and fantastic service. I first came here nearly 20 years ago, my wife even longer.
