Londolozi has pioneered a new electric, zero-emissions safari vehicle.
South Africa's living legend Nelson Mandela hailed Londolozi Private Game Reserve as ‘the model of the dream I cherish for the future of nature preservation in our country'. Londolozi is a Zulu word that means ‘protector of living things'.
The camps in the reserve are situated along the Sand river in the 56 000 hectare Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve, which borders the world-famous Kruger National Park. The area is famous for its leopards, but other magnificent animals like lion, elephant, giraffe and zebra are also readily found.
The success story of Londolozi Game Reserve in Mpumalanga province started in the 1970s when the Varty brothers inherited a hunting lodge on the property. They have developed it into one of the most famous camps and exclusive wildlife paradises in Africa, which has set the standard in luxury accommodation, Pan-African cuisine, and game viewing activities throughout southern Africa.
Described as one of the most unashamedly exclusive and luxurious safari destinations in South Africa, Londolozi Game Reserve is famous for its brilliant photo opportunities of the big cats. The camps also offer an array of other activities like moonlit bush dinners; private bush breakfasts and guided stargazing trips.
Besides the four camps - Pioneer, Founder, Varty and Tree - Londolozi Private Game Reserve has also recently opened the new ultra-luxurious Private Granite Suites, the most exclusive camp with only three suites.
The New York Times described the suites as ‘arguably the best rooms in the entire Kruger area, with private plunge pools that drop onto the boulders forming the Sand River banks, and close enough to the river to hear it running while lying in bed'.
Having set the standard, Londolozi remains one of the top lodges in southern Africa.
