Londolozi Founders vs. Sabi Sabi Selati and Earth Lodge

Have done a number of safaris, but not with either Londolozi or Sabi Sabi and need your advice. We are traveling in May and have settled on either Londolozi Founders or Sabi Sabi Selati and Earth Lodge (2 nights each), due largely to availability.

Our number one priority is the quality of the game drives and number of animals – Is one better than the other? Does one put fewer people in a land rover?

Our number two priority is the quality of the accommodations, level of service provided, quality of the wines and food. Is one better than the other regarding these factors?

Thank you very much for your expert advice.

Well, Sabi Sabi Earth Lodge pretty much stands alone when we consider its combination of creative design and luxury. Selati has its own unique nature.. with its Colonial 'feel'. Londolozi Granite or Tree Suites would be a more reasonable comparison to Earth lodge, for example, than Founders. Beyond that, I would not recommend Londolozi over Sabi Sabi, or vice versa. Both will offer quality game viewing and dining, etc. And both have really large reserves for their game drives.

We stayed at Earth Lodge for a week in April 2012 and found the food, wine and service as good as any place we have stayed. We then spent a week at Tree Camp at Londolozi. The food, wine and service were comparable, but the game viewing at Londolozi was much superior.
