All my life, I have wanted to go on safari, travel in the bush, see the animals up close and personal-Lindolozi Game Reserve in Sabi Sands gave me and my family this opportunity and more.
Known for their Leopards-even when you open up their web site, the first thing that you hear and see are, "The leopards of Londolozi", you are enthralled, excited, inspired.
Our headquarters for 4 days, was "Tree Camp". An absolutely beautiful, updated, chic accommodation which consisted of a living room-all glass enclosed. A master bedroom- all dressed in white, dressing room, and huge bath/shower room. The facilities could have easily accommodated 3 families. Outfitted in the finest furniture, furnishings, and fabrics. As an interior designer, I could certainly appreciate the design and effort placed on making this experience one to remember.
Every morning, prior to heading out in the bush (note: 5:00am), coffee was brought to our room on silver service. We were then escorted to the main lodge where we met up with our guide for a 4 hour bush experience-animals, birds, landscape, and stories. We returned back to camp exhausted, excited from what we had just experienced, wanting more, and hungry. We immediately washed up and headed back to the main lodge for breakfast-which was an overwhelming buffet. Placed before us was everything and anything you could have possibly wanted. We sat out on the open deck and as we gobbled down our food-bush hunting is really quite exhausting and you work up a good appetite-the elephants came sauntering by. Out on the open deck we could also hear the sounds of lions calling to one another.
As the day progressed, we relaxed in our room-read, showered, and just enjoyed the scenery. Lunch was well presented-again a buffet of all you could eat. 4:00 pm time to head out into the bush again for the evening experience. Returning at 8:00 pm, our day was full of excitement. We couldn't wait for the following morning when the process of heading out into the bush and the day's schedule was repeated.
The animals are all there in the bush for you to see and experience. The leopards literally walked close besides our vehicle and I could have, if I had dared, put out my hand to pet the spots. The elephants, hippos, wharthogs, rhinos, impalas, giraffes, wild dogs-ALL THE ANIMALS, not only the big 5 were viewed up close and personal.
The staff was on top of everything. Whatever we requested, it was received in record time.
The facilities are not only clean, but very stylish. If you want to rough it in a tent, this camp is not for you. The food is good-not gourmet, but very appetizing and let me tell you, you are hungry after each bush adventure.
Take a look at my photos of Londolozi, the animals, the bush. If you want to read more about Londolozi, they write a blog complete with pictures. This will give you some indication of their dedication to you-a guest, the animals, the CAMP, and the people of South Africa.
You want to experience the bush firsthand, see the animals up close and personal, enjoy your lodging and the people of South Africa, then LONDOLOZI should be experienced and enjoyed.
