We (7 of us ranging in age from 9-80) experienced the trip of a lifetime at Londolozi. Everything, from the accommodations, staff, food and game drives, was perfect. Unfortunately, we only spent 3 nights at the camp, and we all wish we had stayed longer. Our talented guide, Nick, and tracker, Mike, helped us to see the Big 5 in...

Having heard about Londolozi from friends, we went with high expectations. I am here to say that our expectations were exceeded in every way. The accommodations were clean and luxurious, the food was varied and outstanding, but the main feature was the attentiveness of every staff member at the lodge. Of course, the highlight of our stay was the early...

Our accommodations were top notch, SO luxurious and comfortable, as was the service, food, and our overall safari experience. Attention to detail was simply outstanding. Animals came right next to us,but they didn't seem to care that we were there. They were accustomed to seeing humans in jeeps, and we were obviously not viewed as a threat. We felt completely...

This place is wonderful. It is the perfect balance of exclusivity, luxury yet simplicity, and kindness. We stayed at Founders' camp for three nights, and did 6 game drives. We were there with our two younger kids aged 14 and 8, and they absolutely loved it too. Game drives: a huge thank you to Alistair and Euce, probably the best...

For those of you concerned about whether or not a private 'safari' is worth the extra money, it IS, a hundred times over. With two x game drives per day, your own tracker (big shout out to Judas), 4WD extraordinaire (shout out to Dave) who will take you literally off the beaten track for some of the most incredible wildlife...

What a great experience! We couldn't have been happier at Londolozi. Our room was amazing, with a private deck, pool, and outdoor shower, complete with the occasional monkey coming to visit, or elephants or nyala in the background. Our drives were fantastic - our guide, Ntsako, and our tracker, Eckson, were the best. We saw so many things - herds...

The hosting, care and attention to detail from the management team (Helen and Cry) were remarkable. The uncontrived yet contemporary decor and sincere approach towards my clients were most impressive. The food & beverage offering was flawless - the outside dining in the ‘boma’ was intimate and special. The game viewing was great and the guide professional. Londolozi is a...

I have stayed at many safari camps but this one pays great attention to detail. Everything is perfect. We were a group of 9 people. They split us between two safari jeeps, we would have fitted in one, so we would not be over crowed. The rooms we great, had their own pools and outdoor showers. On our last afternoon...
