Londolozi Founders Camp

Game Lodge, Kruger


Holidays to South Africa feature luxury safari experiences at lodges like Londolozi which is situated on the Sand River at the heart of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve within the Greater Kruger National Park. Wild animals move freely across this vast space, with white rhino and lion concentrations among the highest recorded on the African continent. Breeding herds of elephant and buffalo roam throughout Londolozi, yet it’s the intimate and frequent leopard sightings Londolozi is most famous for. Five exquisite camps boasting luxury accommodation, stunning views, and exceptional cuisine means you will have a hard time deciding which camp to choose for your dream African safari adventure.

Founders Camp

Founders Camp is comprised of ten idyllic superior chalets set along the banks of the Sand River in the glorious shade of ancient matumi trees. Enchanting and intimate, three of these chalets are designed to accommodate children for families on safari. Founders camp has been designed to honour the people who contributed to building Londolozi and features recycled design elements from nature with ‘Bushveld Bohemian’ décor woven throughout the camp. The Londolozi Yoga Deck is a sanctuary nestled in the branches of a 500-year old ebony tree at Founders Camp with daily classes that are always a special occasion as nyala, bushbuck and monkeys abound. You might even be lucky enough to see elephants moving through the riverine bushveld below.


Many Londolozi guest activities can be found within the surrounds of Varty Camp. These include the guest gym, the Londolozi Photographic Studio and Living Boutique. Guests from all camps are invited to make use of these facilities as well as the Yoga Deck, situated next to Founders Camp.


Life at Londolozi is dictated by the seasons; the vegetation and the animal behaviour shift with the rains of summer and the chill of winter. Rise before first light to join the early game drive – your every sense will be rewarded. As the sun rises, the booming snorts of hippo fill the air, while lions may be spotted in pursuit of the last traces of nocturnal prey. On returning from the drive and restoring yourself with a hearty breakfast you can either retire to the sanctuary of your chalet or indulge in a myriad of bushveld activities. Take a guided bush walk or create award-winning photographs in the Photographic Studio. Set off on the Village Experience or the Good Work Foundation Community Experience. If you are into health and wellness take a daily yoga class on the Yoga Deck or treat yourself to a heavenly massage or therapy treatments in the Healing House. If you love to shop, indulge in some retail therapy at the upscale boutique. Your evening game drives are a feast for the senses. Drink in all the postcard images around you: the bare thorn tree, silhouetted against a vast red sunset as the first glimmering stars appear.
