Tick off elephant, buffalo, rhino, lion and leopard with ease and enviable style at Londolozi. Sitting on the banks of the Sand River within the private Sabi Sand Reserve (west of Kruger), Londolozi was the first safari lodge to be accepted into the opulent Relais & Chateau fold. There are five styles of luxury accommodation to choose from, but recent renovations promises to make the three (most secluded) suites under ancient ebony trees at Pioneer Camp, the new benchmark in modern adaptable safari camp design. Ideal for honeymooners and large families or groups of (soccer) friends, the addition of interconnecting rooms (by glass walkways) means the camp can also be converted into a bush home for 6-14 special guests. Featuring clean lines and marble bathrooms, the decor will appeal to fans of Ralph Lauren's impeccable style and the classic Victorian age.
There are reminders of Londolozi's more primitive early days thanks to restored photos and other historic memorabilia.
