"Jaw dropping trip from start to finish"
This place is just beyond in every category - from the twice daily game drives, to every single person who works here, to the gorgeous rooms, unparalleled service (our room was touched up every single time we left), amazing food, and on and on. The trip was life changing. It was our honeymoon and Grant and the rest of the team created an unforgettable experience for us. You really feel like you are a guest in someone's home. It is small, intimate and just incredibly luxurious. And don't even get me started on the game drives! They are just to die for. If you can stay here, you should. If you can't, try to find a way!!
"Life Changing Experience"
Just returned from five life changing days at Londolozi Granite Camp. My wife and I have been fortunate to travel to some pretty nice places, but Londolozi stands alone. Words simply do not do it justice. There is nothing like it. Arriving at the Londolozi airstrip, you are greeted in Land Rover and escorted to camp, 5 minutes away. There is enough wildlife seen on this quick ride to camp alone that most could U-turn and be happy. Arriving at Granite Camp is like stepping back in time, but with every modern luxury and then some. Your staff becomes your family for your stay. Every need is taken care of, with a level of unobtrusive service and excellence that is simply unmatched in hospitality. We were in Granite #2 which is between #1 and #3 with massive pool overlooking the Sand River. Outdoor shower, outdoor tub - it is surreal. Meals are taken in the lodge, with maximum 4 other guests. Best part - no kids - anywhere. This is seclusion and luxury at its best. The game drives are simply incredible. Our ranger and tracker were superb. Saw all of the Big 5, and then some. The Leopards are simply exquisite. Dinner in the Boma with the Londolozi Ladies Choir was borderline spiritual. Listening to young tracker by the name of Innocent describing his journey from young man to Tracker moved everyone to tears. The Village walk was incredible, and it's easy to see why President Mandela chose Londolozi after his release from prison. Many have said it, but it's true - when you leave, tears are shed and you know in your heart that you will return to this special place. Our final night sundowner in the bush complete with amazing food by Anna was something dreams are made of. Do not delay - if you are considering Londolozi, you must go. It's that special and indescribable. Londolozi has everything - amazing facilities, food to die for, service at levels that are indescribable. Special thanks to all of the amazing staff - Duncan, Will, Vicky, Graham, Anna, Namsa, Peter, Elmon and the entire Varty family. We are already planning our return.
"The best private game reserve in South Africa."
There are just three comfortable suites here accommodating six adults; chidren over 12 are permitted provided all three suites are booked by the same family. The suites and the deck, the dining area and the library are well decorated with local artefacts and have wonderful views of the bush. The meals are delicious, whether taken on the deck or in the boma. The all inclusive wine list is extensive and offers some special labels including Hamilton Russell Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The game viewing is exceptional: the big five, with emphasis on Leopard, the reclusive Wild Dog and, occasionally, Cheetah. The Guides and Trackers are outstanding with encyclopaedic knowledge of animals, of course, but also birds, insects and trees. A safari here must be the most rewarding and enjoyable way of spending a few days on safari.
"Best Trip Ever"
I traveled with my wife and two adult children. We are all pretty well travelled. This was the bestâ€”if you have the opportunity go to Londolozi. We stayed two nights at a Tree Camp, then two nights at Granite Camp. Rooms were wonderful at both. Luxury small houses. Granite had heated pool and better views. Tree was a bit larger facility with more guests and more social opportunities. Each night there was a special event. One night gin tasting, the other a beautiful boma dinner. Laura, Kelley and Victoria take care of everything and truly make you feel like an honored, welcome guest. The game drives were great. We arrived at Londolozi from another safari in Zimbabwe. The first was good; Londolozi was great. I really appreciated that the cars at Londolozi had good suspensions and provided a fairly smooth ride over varied terrain. We saw hippos, elephants ( from our room) lions, zebras, leopards, giraffes, rhinos and lots more. Saw a leopard climb a tree to eat an impala he had stored there. The tracking was truly beyond belief. All in all I had expected to be disappointed at Londolozi. It had great reviews and isnâ€™t inexpensive. This often leads to mild disappointment. It exceeded my high expectations in every way possible. Only advice Iâ€™d give. We arrived by land from Nelspruit and left by small plane from Londolozi. Opt for the flight both ways. The drive is bumpy and long. Canâ€™t wait to go back.
"Safari Part of CNY Getaway"
If it were remotely possible to rate Londolozi higher than the 5 stars I would go as high as possible. There really aren't enough superlatives to cover the experience. Let's split it into 2 - the unforgettable Safari part and then the 'hotel' part. Obviously the two go hand in hand but being a safari virgin I ought not let the safari experience 'prejudice' the stay. Londolozi splits into a number of different camps I assume catering to different levels and types of experience. I assume the other camps work off the same principle with a central Camp Deck where meals are served and acts essentially as camp reception. There are three Granite Suites so Granite is quite intimate. Each suite - as does Granite Deck - overlooks rock formations in the middle of the Sands river offering quite good viewing of animals. Views are picturesque and utterly gorgeous as are the animals that can rock up. During this stay it was mostly elephants but the herds when they pass through were stunning and noisy. Usually family groups with a matriarch and if lucky a few young ones to boot. Bull elephants - usually loners if older and younger if within the herd - are pretty spectacular. The suite is nicely designed offering great privacy and functionality. Each has its own large verandah/sundeck which also allows closer access to the river. Each suite is well stocked with almost everything you could possibly anticipate. All in suite consumables are complimentary so you don't have to worry about minibar consumption. The bar is well stocked. During the day you can freely walk around the various camps and between camps but at night you do need to be escorted by camp staff. Everyone was super friendly. No attitude was evident. Service was unstinting and natural and you distinctly feel welcomed and that nothing is too much. As a star gazer the camp car park - where you are received on arrival and from where the Safari drives embark - was cleared one night with all lighting removed to ensure star gazing viewing. All obstacles were removed and a couple of chairs placed front and centre with binoculars made available for star gazing. The personal touch was evident through out. Thanks to Graeme - Granite Camp manager - for this! Meals too are complimentary and we had the one camp chef catering to the three suites needs. The food? Stunningly good. Imaginative menus - different daily - are offered for dinner. I have to say that I felt so well fed that I skipped lunch every day. Breakfast is offered after you return from the morning safari drive which starts at 0530. The afternoon drive starts at 1600. Lunch is offered from 1400 and dinners around 2000 onwards. If you do the morning drive a knock at the door around 0500 signals the arrival of strong hot coffee with a fruit satay stick and a biscuit. About two thirds of the way through the drive there is usually a stop for refreshments - drinks and snacks around the car. At this point if you need to go it's basically go behind a bush. Drinks at the camp bar - were essentially free flow - and complimentary!! Here's the real comparison - service was so good and so friendly that I have to compare them to my favourite hotel the Bangkok Oriental and I can say they are on a par. There is literally nothing in it. My only grumble with the overall set up is that the swimming pool is not a lap pool. It's not a bad pool and does go nice and deep (2m 20) but it isn't too big and the water is murky so you can't see bottom. That's it the only thing I can nit pick at and this notwithstanding I am still going to offer the highest possible rating for facilities / services / food on all points. Over to the safari - as noted I am a safari virgin. Had no real expectation before arrival beyond something as simple as seeing the Big 5 - lions / leopards / elephants / rhinos / buffaloes - on this trip. As the trip went on it was obvious that this was way too simple. We were delighted by all of these on day 2 alone!! Day 2 also offered a cheetah!!!! of which there are less than a handful in the park, and an ostrich quite some distance away. The picture still needs sorting to see whether we caught this on camera. Any number of different antelope from Impala/Kudu/Nyala/Steenbok/Water Buck/Clip Springer could be seen - some clearly less frequently than others. Highlights were: the leopard gracefully lounging in its branch nonchalantly allowing us to snap pictures; the leopard family hidden away so expertly it was amazing the tracker and ranger found them; the cheetah which quite how our ranger found him is beyond me but who so obligingly posed - I do mean Nat Geo type pose - it was almost staged; the male lion with digestion coma hidden inside a thicket so far in that again we don't know how our tracker spotted him from some several hundred metres away (Almon later said that the lion raised its head from his slumber and it was the movement that gave him away); the lionesses breaking into a recently killed wildebeest; the male elephant who was entirely hidden behind a bush that we didn't know was there some 3 meters away that when he was startled by us trumpeted deafeningly scaring the pants off all of us. There are many more and different situations over the 3 days and 6 Safari drives worth mentioning but there just isn't enough room here and you get the drift from the above. Our tracker and ranger were gold mines of information and experience and frankly the fact we saw quite as much as we did had to be down to them. Magnificent the both of them - Shaun and Almon. In love with what they do, their enthusiasm was absolutely infectious and made the early morning wake ups completely worthwhile. The Londolozi Private Game Reserve at large is spectacular with very different terrains across its range. The safari drives were all in basically highly souped up land rovers which seat 6 comfortably - and more uncomfortably. The ranger drives and the tracker occupies pride of place in a seat just off to the left and essentially at the front of the vehicle above the bonnet - the position giving him the best vantage point for tracking. Occasionally he departs the vehicle and goes wondering off to establish where the tracks go and in some situations he retreats to the passenger search when we are viewing the dangerous animals. Having had this first safari experience I can safely say I want more. More importantly, if also rams home the point that animals in their own natural home environment exhibiting normal behaviour is so much more worthy of attention than caging them in confined areas just for the viewing public. Zoos probably have a role in conservation but I can't help thinking that for the vast majority of animals it cannot be justified.
