Londolozi a good place to stay???

Hello,

Planning a safri in Dec. with Go2Africa and they recommend Londolozi lodge at Sabi Sands private reserve. Is this a good place for a safari experience?

Obviously the safari experience depends on the cooperation of the animals, but wondered about the location and lodge.

Many, many thanks!!!

Hi! Londolozi is a great safari destination! They have a couple of lodges to choose from - did your travel agent recommend any one of them specifically? All of their lodges are great though, and will offer an excellent safari experience!

Thanks for the info. She just referred to it as being family owned and that this family places a great emphasis on the history of the lodge and the land. They have created their own little community right next to it. We can go and visit this village and see how the local people have been incorporated into everyday, lodge life. We think it sounds fascinating!

Why do you ask?

We think so, as we are booked there this year. We have friends that recently returned from there. Their game viewing was exceptional.

If you click "about Londolozi", there is a very good video that explains their philosophy.

It is a wonderful lodge, it is owned by The Varty Family, it used to be part of CC Africa, and they took the lodge back last year. It is a really warm and welcoming property, the staff and rangers are exceptional and overall you will be hard pressed to find a nicer lodge.
