Londolozi Founders Camp – Sabi Sands Lodges Reservations
Founders Camp honours past guests and staff who contributed to building Londolozi Game Reserve. Their efforts developed and distilled our common mission over the course of many decades. Enchanting, intimate and child-friendly, Founders Camp is ideally situated to provide an insider’s view of the secrets of river life. Ten idyllic superior chalets repose in the shade of ancient matumi trees along the banks of the Sand River. Three of these superior chalets have been especially designed to accommodate families on safari with a convertible children’s room.
This lodge has a ‘bushveld Bohemia’ style in which nature-based colours are accentuated by wallpaper and handmade cushions for a contemporary safari feel. Founders Camp uses recycled elements of nature in their most natural and raw form.
Founders Camp is also home to the Londolozi yoga deck, a wonderful sanctuary suspended high in the arms of a 500-year-old ebony tree. Inclusive daily classes are held whilst nyala, bushbuck and monkeys abound. On special occasions elephants will move through the riverine bushveld below.
Londolozi’s Founders Camp has ten superior chalets all with private plunge pools. There are inter-leading chalets which makes it ideal for families with children.
No two days are the same at Londolozi and the wildlife experience is tailored to suit individual preferences and expectations. Londolozi is situated on the Sand River in the very heart of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve. Wild animals move freely across this vast space, offering spectacular game viewing and a true wilderness experience. 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 it world famous for wildlife, and lie at the heart of the Londolozi feeling. Intimate leopard sightings are frequent here, an experience that our guests agree is a pinnacle life experience.
