Caveat: My wife and I have traveled to popular and exotic locations across the globe for over 15 years. We typically buy on value, yet often stay in 5-star hotels.
Whatever words I write will under-express my wife's and my recent experience under the care and feeding of the fine people and accommodations at Londolozi. It's among the most valuable and rewarding money I've ever spent. We can't wait to return.
-Location & Game Drives: The most abundant, most diverse game reserve in the world. We saw EVERY creature imaginable--multiple times--thanks to the brilliant work of Ranger Malvin and Tracker Milton.
-Accommodations: A more intimate Four Seasons/Ritz Carlton in the middle of the African Bush. From our personal Chalet with private deck and plunge pool, to the common areas where we enjoyed hanging out with fellow guests and staff, we could not have been more impressed.
-Staff: The friendliest and most attentive in the world.--and passionate about what they do and where they do it. Nicole (camp manager) and Nomsa (chief of everything else) could not have been more on their game. Duncan (overall property manager) is the class of South Africa. Malvin and Milton, our Ranger and Tracker, are the best in the business and now personal friends.
-Food & Beverage: Diverse, exotic and filling (we ultimately began skipping lunch to make room for the spectacular dinners)!
-Fellow Guests: Lot's of unique people from all over the world, whom we got to know personally.
-We stayed at the spectacular Tree Camp, but checked out the other four camps while there (and are in easy walking distance). Each is unique and beautiful in its own regard. When we return, we quite likely will consider Varty Camp as the price point is a bit lower due to slightly smaller rooms, yet you still enjoy the full game drive experience, which is what this trip is all about.
-Londolozi is family-run by Shan & Dave Varty (whom we had the pleasure to meet). The family-owned nature of the operation made an intimate impression during our stay and I believe would be very difficult (if not impossible) to replicate at a corporate-owned lodge.
