“Great camp, saw the big 5”
Reviewed July 18, 2011

Londolozi is heavenly. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. Anythig you need they will see to it. The food was super, accomendations delightful.
Adam our driver, and James our tracker were both engaging and loved what they were doing. They made each days adventure better than the day before. Thanks to them we saw it all .. lions, elephants, leopards, rhino, hipo, giraffes, buffalo etc etc

We were in two camps in Botswana and this one in SA Londolozi was the best of the three. I woudld go back in a heart beat. Best massage I ever had!!!!!!!!
Enjoy!

My husband and I made Londolozi our first safari experience and I don't know how any others will ever meet our now high expectations. We stayed at the Varty camp and were very impressed with the rooms, food, wine and service. The game drives were impressive each ride. We saw each animal we came to see and all within feet of our jeep.

The spirit at Londolozi was a very unique experience. The ranger and tracker had an infectious passion about the land, mission and animals at Londolozi. It is truly a family run camp and it shows.

We felt very removed from the outside world, allowing us to feel more connected to what were experiencing.

A special thank you to James and Elmon, our ranger and tracker. One of the best experiences of our lives.

First trip to Londolozi was in 1983. It's changed...and how!....and it's the most wonderful place to be. Staff, rangers, trackers, chef, butler....can't say enough about all of them I was in Pioneer Camp and because I didn't want to miss any of the game drives in my 5 night stay I didn't have enough time to luxuriate.....but had I chosen to 'stay in'.....I would have wanted for nothing. Worth every penny for the lodgings and the experiences in the bush.

went to 3 lodges in the area. This is the most modern. Massage up in the tree house is sooo relaxing. Granite is very intimate and small. Hostess is very friendly and warm. Staff is great. Food is good. Room was great. It connects via walkways to their other lodges. FYI: this is attached to Singita land, you may want to try both places, but safari experience will be similar. Indoor/outdoor shower, private pool.

Difficult to explain how much our whole family enjoyed Varty Camp. Yes, it is expensive but the whole experience is so good that you leave wanting to come back soon.

Accomodation is great with large elegantly decorated rooms, private terraces with jacuzzi and very nice views. Staff is amazing in all aspects...Tom (ranger) and Jerry (tracker) where excellent in game viewing (specially enjoyed how they look for tracks, follow them and find the animals), but were also great with the kids and the high quality of the conversation with adults was also very unexpected. Christine was also lovely with the kids.

Game viewing was outstanding. Leopards, lions, rinos...so close that you can smell them. Really breath taking! Cannot imaging better game viewing quality.

All in all a truly unique experience that we will no doubt repeat.

Room Tip: Varty good enough...no need to pay more.

Had previously been to Singita Lebombo and did not think this could measure up but it equalled and in some ways surpassed Singita. The staff, game viewing, location and desire to please were all 10/10. Our host and range/tracker were just so good - professional, genuine, experts and passionate - our Manager and Rich and Oxide in particular. Our suite at Granite was huge, wonderfully authentic and had the most amazing large scale pool on the banks of the local river. All the staff went out of their way to make it a truly special stay, the food was consistently very good and most importantly, we saw incredible experiences of big leopard males, a lioness searching out her young via a crocodile trying to take her, a new born buffalo calf, lion calls and fresh kills by lioness'. Only downsides were our room wasn't clean enough to my standards and of the five camps, a few seem to need a touch of TLC. It did not have the ultra quality of Lebombo but it surpassed it in many ways that truly count.

We first went to Londolozi in Feb 2010 and loved it so much we started saving as soon as we got home so we could return this year - and we were treated like long-lost friends. The atmosphere is very friendly and relaxed and they couldn't do enough for us. The rangers and trackers are excellent and we had superb wildlife (especially leopard) sightings again. Yes, it is expensive, but everything is included once you get there, even laundry. It is such a special place that it is well worth the cost. We will be back!
