“Incredible!”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

As a family, (7 of us in total) we stayed at Londolozi's Founders Camp. We had the most amazing stay. The service at Londolozi was the best we have ever received. From the serving staff to management, everyone was helpful, kind, and thoughtful. We were traveling with a 9 year old boy and he received excellent care and had a blast because of the staff. I would highly recommend this spot to anyone visiting South Africa.

The amenities were great and helped us relax and unwind. Such a beautiful setting!

We also saw amazing wildlife that left us speechless. We saw everything we wanted and more. Our tracker and Ranger provided us with great viewing opportunities. They also had us involved in the tracking as well, which was quite fun.

Six adults and one child make for a large party at any location, but it was lovely to be welcomed with such open arms. More than one of us cried while leaving Londolozi. It will definitely be the place in South Africa we will never forget.

Room Tip: Founder's camp was a great location!

This was my second visit to Londolozi, I was there in May of 2012 and returned in August - September of 2013...I couldn't wait to get back. As I have told everyone, Londolozi is my favorite place in all the world and I could return every year for the rest of my life and never tire of it. The accommodations are incredible (this time we stayed in Founders Camp), the people caring, friendly and warm, the food excellent and the animals....well, I don't think there is anywhere better for viewing these amazing creatures than Londolozi. It is an experience you will never forget. Thank you to Alfie and Usea and everyone for making this the best trip ever, I love South Africa but most of all I love Londolozi. I hope to return again next year.

Room Tip: They are all great!

You feel to be not only a guest, you feel to be part of the whole social system; people, animals ... It starts with the owners creating behind the scene a village for all employees with pre-school and adult education. They pay them above average, all-in-all leading to people being happy and sharing this happiness with you as a guest. I have never been treated so friendly ... Afterwards we (a family of 9) stayed in a 5star hotel in Kapstadt and each of us called for Edward, our waiter throughout our 3 days stay. It continued with excellent food, and a perfect team on our safaris, Trever and Benett. Needless to say that our rooms were very nice, clean, with a terrace looking on the river valley (with the luck seeing twice a group of elephants walking along). But, to be honest, this was less important at this place.
Part of our family stayed in a 5 Star lodge in Namibia in the past. This was in all aspects better. So, if I can, I will come back, for sure, although it is very expansive! And asking the employees whether we will see them again: they want to work there for their lifetime. Good bye Londolozi and a big thank you!

Everything was so well managed and done in a luxury way that you won't forget. We had Ranger Mike Sutherland and Tracker Life. I am still a bit stunned about all we experienced. Mike is an excellent photographer and was very patient with me as I had a new SLR and should have spent more time before the trip on my photography skills but he was very helpful and I did learn a lot. It was just beyond amazing and I will always remember all the employees, the beautiful facility, and all the drives through the Reserve.

Room Tip: All the rooms are special.

(as of today) There are 183 reviews on Londolozi and none of the them are below "Very Good" - Let me be the 184th.

My wife and I loved this place. The staff was exceptional. Our guide had over 25 years of experience and he made me feel as though I was the most important person that he had ever driven around the bush. The food was delicious and the wine never stopped flowing. If you dream of going on an african safari...GO to Londolozi....you will not be disappointed.

My husband and I stayed in the private granite suites in August. My oh my what an experiene we had, one that we will never forget thanks to the amazing staff, Erin, Nadia, Johan and excellent chefs! There is so much beautiful food and drink, truly magnificent and this was every day for 5 days we were there. Ou ranger Richie and tracker Lucky are THE BEST! We had so much fun on our game drives we didn't want them to come to an end! Londolzi, you lead the way in hospitality, we were spoilt rotten from the time we arrived until we left that gorgeous place. Thank you all so very much for taking such good care of us and we will see you again in January 2015, that's right we have booked again already! Love Peter and Rachael Dilger xxxx

Room Tip: Private Granite Suites are beautiful but all rooms look amazing.

This was my wife and my 4th visit to Londolozi and the 2nd this year.This time we brought our son who had been on safari before but had never been to the Sabi Sands and our daughter- in-law who had never been to Africa.We had raved so much about Londolozi and were a little concerned that they may be dissapointed.Whenever you return to a place you have high expectations but as expected each time we come back some how it is better than the last time.Once again we had a spectacular time ,the accomadation at Varty was fantastic and we got an upgrade,the food was great,we had Sandros again as our ranger who was marvellous and the game was outstanding .The highlights included an incredible viewing of the Mhangeni pride especially the cubs in a playful setting,a wonderful sighting of the dark maned Majingilane with the young tailless Tsalala lioness mating in good photographic light,the female cheetah and her cubs ,Dashane a dominant male leopard making a kill of a duiker in front of us and off course wonderful birds.I have detailed more about Londolozi on my 2 previous Trip advisor reviews from other trips and please take a look.There can be no higher praise than the fact that as soon as we got home we booked another visit for May 2014.Anyone interested in photography take a look at my photos below from this trip and you will be wanting to book a visit too!!
