Londolozi Private Game Reserve

Reviewed 26 April 2014

Spent only two nights in Varty Camp with Backroads tour but every minute beyond belief. My cottage, number 5, incredibly comfortable with great views over the Sand River. Marvelous staff from top to bottom. Food, wine, and service impeccable. Jessie and Shadrack top-notch guide and tracker and fun to travel with. Heart- and soul-elating tour of employee village, day-care center, and computer learning center. Particularly appreciate the emphasis on education, conservation, and environment at all five camps. Already planning a return in five or six years when grandson Henry is a bit older.

Room Tip: Doubt if there's a bad room or cottage in any of the five lodges.

If you are planning a trip to view game in South Africa, Londolozi is the place to go. Spectacular in every way - from the great staff and amazing rangers (Sandrosz is the best!) to the food and setting and, of course, the big game that you will see while at this private reserve. The owners' passion for and commitment to conservation and the community are another reason to spend your vacation dollars here. We were in the Varty Camp and loved it; it was elegantly comfortable. We have been back for a month and talk about our stay here every day. We have had the good fortune to visit many countries and stay in many top-rated hotels. There is no better place than Londolozi. We can't wait to go back.

Absolutely magical, the stuff fairy tales are made of. I will go back ASAP. Food and service was top notch (though we occasionally had some language barriers). Guides/trackers were incredible. Count yourself among the luckiest if you have the privilege to do game drives with Talley and Freddy! Stayed at Founders Camp, though they're all connected and we also used amenities at Varty Camp.

The Private Granite Suites at Londolozi are beyond belief and this comes from a hard bitten cynical traveller! It is simply the most all encompassing beautiful place made even more stunning by the enchanting Nadia and the humorous and knowledgable Lucien. Every drive was different and we saw absolutely everything except the evanescent cheetah. We are already planning a return next year and my wife is busy downloading all the amazing recipes we consumed. If you only plan one major indulgence in life this is it but plan to stay for at least 4 nights.

Room Tip: Go the granite suites if you can afford it and number 2 has the best pool!

I don't know where to start ... from the moment we arrived we were overwhelmed by their hospitality and level of attention to detail. Upon arrival, Will, one of the camp managers, was waiting for us and took us for a drink and a welcome chat. We felt straight away welcome and appreciated and this is exactly what we needed after a long journey that started almost 24 hours earlier when we left for our honeymoon.

After a brief introduction we were taken to our lodge, which was amazing. Big, clean, modern, it contained all the facilities that one requires, it has its own plunge pool. It has privacy and a beautiful view over the river. We really couldn't ask for more, but we did receive more ... much more.

The game drives were fantastic. Eckson was our tracker and Sandros our ranger, due to their capable skills we managed to see plenty of lions and leopards, besides numerous other animals. At one occasion we actually went into another game-reserves area to track some lions (with their permission of course) and we found 3 of the coalition brothers. We had never been on safari before, but if this is the standard, we will be back.

Back at the main camp we got spoiled like crazy. We had a personal butler, Alex, who would jump through hoops to please you and he was great fun to talk to. His mood and attitude is infectious and had a huge positive effect on our stay.

On our second night, at dinner there was a performance by the 'local employees' which you have to see. Afterwards we were taken back to our room, where they had surprised us by putting tealights and rose petals around the bath, which was filled and they gave us a bottle of bubbly. So we couldn't resist and jump in off course for a relaxing bath.

The next day they told us not to go for lunch to the usual place as they took us to a secluded spot along the river where they left us with a buffet and protected from the environment in a treehouse by ourselves. This was just fantastic!

When it comes to photography, they were also top of the market. We had some problems with our settings and they directed us to the Photo-hub. Here Richard sat with us and gave us some great tips! During the game drives they will always attempt to put you in the best position to take the best photograph possible in the situation. On our final morning we even had some pictures printed to frame at home, which they do there as well.

A big thank you to Sandros, Alex, Jason, Eckson and last but not least Will, whom we spent some great times with, when we did have a spare moment and who always came to check up on us if everything was alright and who remembered my wife's favorite drink. We will definitely come back.

This is a review for the Private Granite Suites at Londolozi: I'm not sure that I have the words to do this place justice. This lodge is truly awesome, incredible, superb, exceptional - and every other superlative that you can think of. First and foremost, the game viewing is breathtaking, and you'd be extremely unlucky not to see the Big 5. From the moment that you step off the plane, met by the amazing husband and wife team of Nadia and Lucien that run the Granite Suites, being shown to your beautiful room, to being taken for your drives by an expert ranger and tracker, then fed breakfast / lunch / dinner by the lovely staff, this place delivers in all manners and more. The views from the rooms are blissful, your time in between drives is spent in wonderful surroundings and you are looked after from start to finish. Our stay at the Granite Suites exceeded all of our expectations and this experience of a lifetime has left us with wonderful memories to take home.

Room Tip: Select the top of the range Granite Suites if you can.
