Londolozi Baleteur Suite or Chalet?

Londolozi Baleteur Suite or Chalet?

We are going to Londolozi next fall and are wondering if it's worth the extra expense to book a suite at Baleteur or Tree Camp or if we should just book a chalet at Baleteur. It's almost twice as much money for the suite, but I've read that that suites are really nice. I was just trying to get a good understanding of the differences between the suites and the chalet. Thanks.

I live in South Africa and have been to Londolozi many times. I stay in a suite at Batleur camp which is fantastic. The suites are superior to the chalets, however the chalets at Batleur camp are still excellent. The chalets have a private deck with a private plunge pool and are very comfortable. I normally try to stay in suite number 1 or 2 in bateleur camp. They are near the river and have great views of the river. The chalets are definately best in the bateleur camp as oppossed to the other camps at Londolozi. You do get the exact same experience in a chalet as in a suite and the bottom line is you are paying the extra money for a superior room. The suites consist of a large deck, huge beautiful bathroom and a bedroom.

Let me know if you need more information.

Hi I am SAfrican living in UK. Also visited Londolozi many times. Tree Camp is super but I dont think its worth paying the extra. Agree that Bateleur Camp is lovely - my favourite is Safari camp which is not near the other camps. Whichever you choose you will have a wonderful experience. Londolozi is my most loved place in the world. Have a great stay.

The suites are much larger and posher. I've stayed in all three options at Londoz (Bateleur chalet, Bateleur Suite, and Tree Camp). Of the three my favourite was Tree Camp, for its small size and very personalised approach. There are only 6 suites so the camp is much more intimate.

If I were to stay in a chalet, I'd choose Pioneer Camp over Bateleur unless the plunge pool is a deciding factor (this can be very important when it's hot). The Pioneer and Founders chalets are larger and more spacious than the Bateleur chalets, and I like the small size of Pioneer Camp. Freddie, the head butler, really makes you feel welcome at Pioneer.

No matter where you stay, I'm sure you'll have superb game-viewing at Londoz.
