"25 years later..."
I had wanted to visit this almost "mythical" place for the last 25 years, but somehow never managed to. I was not to be disappointed when I found it different from how I had pictured it in my imagination. We stayed at the small Pioneer camp, with just three units. Our apartment (not "room"...) was spacious, well furnished and with beatiful views of the surrounding African bush. The meals were of high quality, considering where we were, with a special set-up for last night's dinner. We were there for the safaris, but appreciated the spoiling comfort of the infrastructure and the kindness of the staff none the less. The African experience was of the highest standards. We had been to another private game reserves before, in the same area, and had loved them. But Londolozi manages to be different. It is famous for its leopards and, indeed, we got great leopard sightings, including one eating its impala high-up on a tree. We saw two mating lions. We were lucky, perhaps, but our guides were competent and determined. We did not just "bump" into these or other situations: they found them for us, often after long footprint tracking and even chasing (the lions were restless that morning...), and we were often first at the most memorable sights. Of course, several cars eventually converge on the "targets", but they are all from Londolozi, so it is less crowded than in other places that we visited before, or later in the same trip. The savanna at Londolozi is of the kind with lots of trees and a thick bush. You may see many of the most iconic African animals - elephants, lions, leopards, giraffes, hippos, hyenas, large antelopes, cape buffalos, perhaps a rhino, and, of course, plenty of impalas. But do not expect to see the large herds of zebras, wildebeests or gazelles of the open grasslands, or the very occasional cheetah. We stayed there a total of three days, which were enough to see what there was to be seen. Just as well, because all this comes at a price, and you don't want to pay it for a week, before you see your first leopard! There was a little surprise at the end of the last safari, which I shall not describe here, in order not to spoit it to future visitors...
"Outstanding Safari Experience"
Our accommodations were 5 star in every way. From the moment we arrived our every need was met. Erin and Kevin were wonderful. Trevor, our Ranger and Jerry , our Tracker were outstanding! We saw leopards numerous other animals and our last game drive we spent an amazing time with a pride of lions...up close and personal! We were surprised with a candlelight dinner served on our deck by the small swimming pool and our bathroom floor was set with tea lights and rose petals to celebrate our 59th anniversary!!! WONDERFUL time.
"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.
