Londolozi Game Reserve
Luxury Game Lodge in the Sabi Sand Reserve
Sabi Sand Reserve, Greater Kruger National Park
Londolozi is situated on the banks of the Sand River, in the heart of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve within the Greater Kruger National Park. Going on safari at Londolozi allows you to have an exclusive and luxurious experience of the area.
As a luxury private game reserve, Londolozi is world-renowned. Famous for its Londolozi Feeling, although hard to describe, it could be translated to a combination of experiential luxury surrounded by the spectacular beauty of the Sabi Sands, all the while feeling completely at home within this wilderness.
Breeding herds of elephant and buffalo roam throughout Londolozi, while white rhino and lion concentrations are among the highest recorded on the African continent. Yet it’s the leopards of Londolozi that make us world famous for wildlife, and lie at the heart of the Londolozi feeling. Over the course of more than four decades, a unique relationship has developed between our rangers and trackers and generations of wild leopards. Intimate leopard sightings are frequent here, an experience that our guests agree is a pinnacle life experience.
Londolozi believes in safari as a journey that immerses the senses and awakens the spirit. To have an encounter with wild animals in the African bush is to discover an essential truth about ourselves and our world.
The campfire has burned at Varty Camp for nearly 100 years, making this place the symbolic heart of Londolozi. This original camp is a tapestry of brick paths, dolerite rock walls, waterfalls and tangled vines echoing simple spaces with unencumbered river view backdrops. The tones of the camp reflect the owners’ almost 100-year love affair with this land and therefore place an emphasis on family and heritage.
Children over the age of six are welcome at Varty Camp and with some of the chalets inter-leading, Varty Camp is perfect for families. Each room has its own private swimming pool, outdoor shower and outdoor dining sala, framed by timber decks raised off the ground under the shade of an ancient riverine forest.
Many guest activities can be found within the surrounds of Varty Camp. These include the Guest Gym, Photographic Studio and Living Boutique as well as the restorative Healing House. The charming “original Sparta Camp” located in the heart of Varty Camp, represents generations of history which echoes a bygone era before Londolozi existed.
Found on the outskirts of the Kruger National Park, the Sabi Sand Reserve is well known for leopard and Big 5 viewing in its 160 000 acres of protected land which is fenceless to Kruger. This area consists of many private reserves and lodges, allowing the opportunity to off road, go on night drives, experience a walking safaris and take exceptional wildlife photography. Sabi Sands has the largest density of leopards yet surveyed in Africa – making it undoubtedly one of the most iconic leopard reserves.
This reserve is situated in the southwestern corner of Kruger National Park, and proudly allows animal movement in and out of Kruger. The many private lodges situated in this reserve are known for their luxury and exceptional service, making it one of the most sought after intimate destinations in South Africa particularly for families, honeymooners and adventurists.
