We had a wonderful experience at Londolozi. My husband did not want to go on this trip and we are now planning to return to Africa with the rest of the family at his insistence, and will surely stop at Founder's. The camp is lovely- very comfortable but not over the top. One gets the sense that the staff is well treated and it shows in the warmth and care they show the guests.
We also had a terrific experience with Dean Smithyman and Elmon Mhlongo- a great ranger and guide team.
We visited briefly the other camps that make up the Londolozi property- and I don't think you could go wrong with any of them - although we really liked the size and feel of Founder's.
