"Ultimate luxury safari experience"
Everything at Pioneer Camp was perfection. This was the third stop on our honeymoon and even though every place we stayed was fantastic, Pioneer Camp blew everywhere else out of the water. Tayla, the camp manager, was fantastic. Just as a small example, when she learned that we and another couple staying at the camp were into craft beers, she pulled some out of the cellar for us. Our butler, Caven, was amazing and always so cheerful. We're fairly certain we had the best tracker (Elmon) and ranger (Shaun). My husband and I were constantly wowed by Elmon's expertise and his stories were just incredible. Shaun was a delight -he was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable. It felt like Elmon and Shaun were finding all the animals, calling it in and then the other safari vehicles would follow them. In three days, we basically saw every animal there was to see (elephants, giraffes, zebras, impala, kudu, buffalo, lions, lion cubs, leopards, hyenas, wild dogs, hippos, rhinos...). Seeing the wild dogs was probably are favorite part. After reading the reviews, we were prepared for the food to be good, but being the admittedly NYC food snobs that we are we did not expect it to be as amazing as it was. Virginia, the chef, was fantastic. The soups were some of the best we've ever had! The dinner is the boma was a highlight. Not only was the setting too cool but it was great to have dinner with the other guests and with Tayla and Shaun. The suite was beautiful and about 10x the size of our NYC apartment. The common spaces were also gorgeous. The village walk with Lina was informative as well. The only regret we have is that we did not stay longer! We can't wait to return one day for an anniversary trip.
"South Africa luxury and service beyond all expectations"
We feel as if we won the lottery with the guide and tracker and all of the wonderful staff at Londolozi. Shawn, our Ranger, was so incredibly knowledgable and it was so obvious how much he genuinely loved what he did (and was so great at it). Elmon is literally the rock star of trackers--he got out of the car and found five lion cubs with their two HUGE females and a giant male which would seem would be easy to find. They were literally in the middle of palms that could have camouflaged an entire herd of elephants. Shawn rightly said we should wait just a few minutes and just as he said they would, all of the Cubs and mom came out and laid out just in front of us. That was just the start of the day...they spotted a seven month old elusive leopard, we saw lions mating, a journey of giraffes, elephants, crocks, hippos, birds the list goes on and on. THAT WAS JUST OUR AFTERNOON DRIVE. Plus, they are kind and funny. Moving on to our accommodations, which were nothing short of spectacular. High ceilings, huge rooms, enormous bathrooms...all done by what looked like Ralph Lauren (black label). Tayla, a South African girl that was fun, bright and my girls loved, was the manager of the camp and made sure whatever we wanted was taken care of before we even thought of it. There was an entire extra house where we had breakfast and could use to relax. Now the food. We were told by friends to lose ten pounds before going. They were so right. Every meal was better than the last, all so fresh and delicious...I will miss the food desperately. Virginia and Petunia were such amazing chefs and the breadth of what they offered keep both teenagers and parents more than happy, which shows just how masterful they are. Innocent was in charge of keeping us fed and happy and he did it perfectly, always with a smile. Sarah, another chef, made us a fabulous dinner in the bush that we will never forget. Helen, another manager was so fun and fabulous and would come visit and had us all laughing at her stories. The creatived hub was such a fabulous addition, the girl there helped edit photos and she can even print them out on canvases to take home memories of this perfect trip. I would recommend 3-4 nights so that you can truly enjoy even a touch of amenities available at Londolozi.
"Super super safari lodge"
The suites were very luxurious, the bathroom was huge. The food was absolutely delicious. The staff were very courteous and did not have the word "NO" in their vocabulary. Taylor the manager was just great with her attention to detail. The food was amazing. The bumper breakfasts, delicious high teas and dinners were fab. The sightings too were super. We saw 10 different leopards in 5 days. Their special touches like a surprise breakfast in the bush and champagne sundowners in the bush were great. The guides know about photography too and thus position the jeep with the perfect lighting! All in all, a super great safari. Will definately visit again.
"Amazing, No detail overlooked"
This place is amazing! I came here with my wife on our honeymoon - 1st leg of a 3 part trip that included Victoria Falls and the Maldives. This was the highlight of the trip and is a truly special, one-of-a-kind destination. Within the first hour of arriving, I had already emailed my parents and started figuring out dates of when to come back. Arrival - we landed on their private landing strip via Federal Air. We were the only people on that plane (~30 seats), so not really sure if we really had to adhere to their "soft" sided bag policy. The flight was about an hour, no issues and uneventful. We saw an elephant as we landed. We were promptly picked up in one of their open air safari vehicles. On the 5-10 minute ride to the lodge, we drove past a watering hole with a family of hippos, a bunch of crocodiles and various types of water birds. Perfect way to start our four night stay. Erin, the Pioneer Camp Manager, greeted us. She was fantastic and gave us the lay of the land. Throughout our stay, she made sure that our trip was truly special. Room - this lodge only has 3 rooms, which made it feel extremely private and exclusive. Our room had a living room, 2 bedrooms (a master and one for kids, if you have them), 2 bathrooms, and outdoor deck with an unheated mini pool. Within the first few minutes of our arrival, we had a monkey visit our pool and could see a herd of elephants from our bedroom and patio. Despite their close proximity, we did not feel at all threatened. I believe there is an electric fence that encloses the lodge and keeps large, potentially dangerous animals, off the property. We never felt unsafe. At night, you are not allowed to walk around the property on your own. You are escorted by a ranger. Back to room, it was an out of Africa feel, old school feel. Exactly what we were looking for. The living room had very high ceilings and a wooden canopy. The bedroom has a four post king bed. The pillows and linens were extremely comfortable. The master bathroom had a jacuzzi tub and a separate walk-in shower. There is also an outdoor shower which we used after our morning game drives. Water pressure and temperature of the water were perfect. The room also had a complementary fully stocked bar and various homemade snacks. Game drives - before arrival, we booked our own private game vehicle. They told us a private vehicle was only available for 4 of our 8 game drives, which was fine given the cost. The vehicle can hold 9-12, depending on how many children you have. It should be noted that only children over 6 are allowed to go on the game drives. Although we had only paid for a private vehicle for half our drives, they gave us the private vehicle for our final four game drives for free. A very pleasant surprise. Our ranger was Alphie. Our guide was Shadrick. Alphie had 20+ years of experience and knew the terrain like the back of his hand. He was extremely well-respects among his peers. Shadrick had about 10 years of experience. Both were extremely nice and great to talk to - they had so many interesting stories. They really made each drive an amazing and unique experience. They focused on making sure we saw the full diversity of wildlife - 2 prides of lions (one with 3 8-day old Cubs and two full grown males), 2 leopards (mother and cub), pack of hyenas, a cheetah and more elephants, rhinos, giraffes, hippos, warthogs and crocodiles than I could count. The bird life was also exceptional - tons of variety. Other than the big 5, I really wanted to see a cheetah and wild dogs. Alphie and Shadrick tracked and were able to find both for us. We saw the pack of wild dogs in the last 30 minutes of our last game drive - extremely rare and difficult to track given their mobility. Once-in-a-lifetime! Given the terrain, more forest, than plains we were very lucky to spot a cheetah (not very common in this area). Towards the end of each morning drive, we had a selection of pastries, hot tea, coffee and hot chocolate. Out go to was hot chocolate and amarula. Good way to finish the morning game drive. Toward the end of the afternoon game drive, we stopped for "happy hour" - which included any alcohol you could possibly want (any kind of liquor, beer, champagne and red/white wine) as well as a selection of savory snacks (ostrich or beef jerky, chips, nuts, dried fruit, pickles, etc.). Great way to get ready for the sunset. If you go in the winter (which we did), be sure to bundle up in the morning (I would wear thin gloves, long underwear, jeans, a couple of t-shirts, a sweatshirt and a hat). You were also given hot water bottles and blankets if you were still chilly. The temperature was around 45-50F in the morning, it felt colder some mornings. But, we were cozy with all the gear on. For the afternoon, we wore t-shirts and shorts and brought a coat to wear towards dusk. Food - see above for snacks during the game drive. Two meals are served a day - late breakfast / lunch after your first game and dinner, whenever you want it. The breakfast / lunch has a buffet spread (fruit, cheeses, various meats, cereal) and then you can order a hot dish. The food was fantastic and you could have as much as your heart desires. Dinner was equally exceptional. Dinner is made to order or on occasion you eat at the lodge's outdoor venue which is more buffet style, but also made-to-order. Surprises - we were only there for four days but it seemed like they had a special surprise for us at least once a day - private lunch in a treehouse overlooking the Sabi Sands river, private dinner in our room, a private hike up to a bluff for sunset with champagne and accompaniments. This was a somewhat long review for me. My words can't describe how special a place this truly is. I highly, highly recommend for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
"Our fourth trip...and the magic continues!"
We returned to Londolozi to celebrate a birthday and to share the place with family and friends. You always wonder when you go back to a place if it is going to live up to your expectations...and you wonder if others will love it as much as you do. It was fabulous. We were able to have Pioneer to ourselves and the staff exceeded our expectations. Our first game drive was spectacular. Our tracker, Life, found a cheetah and we followed it as it climbed a dead tree and posed in the sunset with elephants in the background. The elephants surrounded us, providing a beautiful experience. Garrett, our ranger, and Life were a great team, working together to ensure that each game drive was unique and memorable. We saw lions stalking cape buffalo, a leopard dragging an impala much larger than she was, leopards drinking at the water hole, hippos strolling across the grass, a crocodile running to the waterhole, beautiful owls, amazing rhinos....and more. In camp, Erin and Trevor took care of our every need. The accommodations are beautiful and comfortable. The food was amazing and the experiences special. The women's choir came to sing happy birthday to my husband, we had dinner in the bush complete with linens and crystal and we had dinner in the boma. The Varty family continues to make Londolozi an incredible experience. Guest have the opportunity to experience the bush, learn about the land and live in luxury. If you go, you should at least stay four nights. Anything less would be a mistake. I am already planning our next trip!
