Londolozi – Pioneer Camp – Londolozi Private Game Reserve
Big Five sightings are plentiful at Londolozi, with the park specializing in Leopard sightings! The animals have been entirely normalised to the presence of vehicles and onlookers, and thus go about their hunting within clicking range of eager wildlife photographers. Lion and hyena are also tracked daily.
Impala, common waterbuck, grey duiker, kudu, bushbuck and nyala all roam the area freely, alongside buffalo herds, elephant, white rhino, giraffe, and warthog. The ever present Sand River plays home to Cape Clawless Otter and hippo groups, and guests can spot the white-tailed mongoose, African civet and large-spotted genet on a night time safari.
303 bird species call this area home, including white-crested helmetshrike, lilac-breasted roller, brown-headed parrot, emerald-spotted dove and scarlet-chested sunbird, woodland kingfisher, red-chested cuckoo, Wahlberg’s eagle and Crested francolin. Saddle-billed stork, grey heron and pied kingfisher gather around the park’s waterholes.
