Situated on the banks of the Sand River, in the heart of the renowned Sabi Sand Game Reserve, is one of the world’s most premier safari lodges – Londolozi. Founded in 1926, the lodge remains owned and run by the Varty family, and occupies an area of 34,000 acres of African wilderness, offering some of the continent’s best Big Five game viewing opportunities. With an abundance of wildlife and an incredible array of species, no two sightings are the same and the excellent guiding team of professional, passionate and knowledgeable rangers and trackers are extraordinarily skilled at bringing every game drive to life.
With five intimate camps to choose from, each with their own unique look and feel, there is something perfectly suited to everyone. The original Varty camp has a welcoming and comfortable ambiance, with a strong emphasis on family heritage, inviting guests into the heart of the lodge. Founder’s Camp pays tribute to the founding guides, trackers, chefs and naturalists who were part of the family from the very beginning, with a contemporary and spacious feel and a celebration of natural elements and tones throughout. Tree Camp is an exquisitely designed celebration of the stunning Ebony trees that surround it, and was the first camp in all of Africa to be awarded Relais & Chateaux status, whilst Pioneer Camp is an intimate and private homestead, perfect for a family to stay in exclusively.
The most coveted of all, the Private Granite Suites, are flanked by an extrusion of granite rocks and are the perfect place to unwind and sit just above the river bank, watching as families of elephants wander past. Throughout all of the camps, each room comes complete with a private plunge pool, for a quick dip to escape the heat of the day.
