A year later and we are still talking about Londolozi....every day!!! Having traveled extensively, I did not expect to be swept off my feet but that is exactly what happened. From the fabulous rooms, food, and service, to the spectacular game drives, Londolozi exceeded all of our expectations and was the highlight of our SA trip. We can't wait to...

This was by far the highlight of our honeymoon in South Africa. From the luxury room nestled in the wilderness to the adventurous game runs, we enjoyed every minute of our stay at Londolozi.

We stayed 3 nights at Londolozi in April 2016. The lodge is terrific. The guide and tracker were superb. We saw "the Big Five" and much more. We were in a Land Rover with only 3 guests, so it was like a private tour. The other person with my husband and I was delightful, so the experience was just wonderful....

This was our first time at Founders although we have stayed at Varty (Main) Camp many times. It probably ranks as one of the most expensive safari destinations but when you get the excitement of the closeness of the wildlife, the amazing knowledge of the rangers and the attention to detail it's worth every penny. It's 26 years since we...

I visited Londolozi on my own almost 30 years ago, and remembered the game drives as if they happened yesterday. When my wife and I had the opportunity to visit South Africa together, I did not hesitate to book us there again. Everything -from accommodations, meals, game drives and a tour of the workers camp - was better than we...
