Our Expert Says

For an elegant and stylish luxury safari camp experience in South Africa, look no further than Londolozi Tree Camp. Every design detail has been attended to in camp, from the private swimming pools and ‘salas,’ to the chocolate-plated leather beds. However, it’s the exceptional wildlife experience that makes Londolozi world famous…the Sabi Sand Game Reserve is hard to beat.

Set high in the canopy of the surrounding leadwood trees, Londolozi Tree Camp redefines intimacy, simplicity and elegance. Each of Tree Camp’s six beautifully appointed thatched chalets feature private decks that provide views of visiting elephants and other wildlife at the river below. Cool off in your private pool with champagne in hand, or relax inside with a book behind walls of glass, which allow the light of the forest to pour in. Or, if you prefer to be social, a relaxing main lounge and sweeping shared deck also await. A visit to the private spa might be in order after a day of adventure in the bush. At Londolozi, superb cuisine is an essential part of the experience. Much of the day revolves around specially crafted culinary delights – freshly baked muffins at sunrise, a fortifying breakfast, indulgent high tea, and the grand finale, a sumptuous fireside dinner.

Wildlife Viewing & Activities

Encompassing 40,000 acres of wilderness, Londolozi ensures that no two safari drives here are ever the same. As the original South African safari destination, Londolozi has perfected the art of hiring the very best rangers, trackers and naturalists over nearly nine decades. This diverse team of experts boasts a combined guiding experience of more than 350 years. Trackers sit at the front of the Land Rover scouting for fresh animal tracks, while rangers drive with astonishing skill through ravines and thickets in pursuit of elusive animals, all the while wowing guests with their outstanding knowledge and unforgettable stories. A highlight here is the world-famous ‘Leopards of Londolozi.’ Featured in countless documentaries, coffee-table books and magazine articles, this well-documented leopard dynasty has thrilled wildlife lovers from around the world. Fortunately, Londolozi’s rangers are all keen photographers and are adept at helping guests capture stunning images of these magnificent creatures.

Conservation

The name Londolozi is derived from a Zulu word meaning “protector of all living things,” and it is this ambitious conservation ethic that informs every aspect of life here. The reserve has been nurtured back into abundance through diligent efforts to restore river systems and natural drainage lines, and to restock and rebuild the natural productivity of the land. Since 2000, Londolozi has invested hundreds of thousands of dollars in habitat restoration projects, overseen by some of the world’s leading experts in rangeland ecology. These efforts include an innovative micro-catchment management program, which helps the land to retain its water, and has made it nearly resistant to drought, as well as an aggressive invasive plant control strategy. A huge amount of time, money and effort have also been invested in bush clearing programs, which have restored a mosaic of habitats, increasing the diversity of animals found in the area.
