    “Great game viewing and a beautiful lodge!”

    This was our third time to Londolozi and our first to Pioneer (we have stayed at Granite and Tree Camps). The accommodations were first rate and the game viewing amazing! Lions, leopards, and the elusive wild dogs, which our guide, Alistair, was able to find on our last morning – much to my wild dog obsessed husband’s delight! Special thanks to Victoria and Trevor (a/k/a chief) for our in-lodge experience and to Alistair and Euce for the great safari experience. A special note to Euce – hope all is well 🙂

    “Amazing must return”

    Cannot find great enough words to describe Londolozi Pioneer Camp & all of Londolozi that we saw. From the drives to the decor, food & service everything is done with passion and finesse! We must add a special thank you to Erin, Trevor & Richie for looking after us so well…we will be back

    “Best of the best”

    Just came back from our trip to South Africa. By far the best hotel and knowledgeable staff. They work to make you feel part of the family but most importantly tailor the experience according to what they see you are enjoying the most. As far as the game viewing, we got to the jeep and after our first day, we had notched the big five. The food is great and their meal with wine pairing was casually but finely done.
    I would not hesitate to recommend the place as it now holds a special place in my book as one of the best hotels I have stayed in.

    “Truly amazing experience”

    Having caught the safari bug a few years ago, we have been slowly working our way through our wish list of camps and have to say Londolozi takes the number one place so far. A beautiful camp, with very spacious accommodation and fabulous meals. The team at Londolozi is fantastic – the camp has a very relaxed vibe and a fantastic ethos well represented by the team.
    But the real reason to come to this camp is the game drives. Trevor, our ranger and Richard, our tracker, were superb. We have never had leopard sightings so memorable.
    Will we go back? Absolutely. Thank you, Londolozi for an incredible experience.
