"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.
"Simply the best ( Tina turner )"
Myself and my wife natalie had the most amazing time at londolozi it's a first class place As Tina turner said it's SIMPLY THE BEST We were looked after by Victoria and Robbie and they were amazing The game drives by Bennet and nick were awesome The whole set up is just amazing I can't recommend londolozi high enough it was just so so amazing If your thinking of going don't hesitate just book it To have the experience of a lifetime Steve and natalie
Everyone at Londolozi ensures that each guest has a fabulous experience. Graham makes sure everything is 'just right' with the accommodation and facilities, nothing is too much trouble. Anna serves up the most delicious and adventurous food and James and Rob made sure our game drives were exciting albeit a little scary. A truly amazing experience which is a once in a lifetime holiday, but now I am keen to go again!!
"The best we have been too"
We have been lucky enough to stay at a number of different game reserves around the world and this has to be the best. Clearly what you get to see does make a difference but the quality of the guides does help. On this stay we saw everything we dreamed of seeing and more. What is also exceptional is the quality of the food and service. Nothing was a too much and Graham the main man was very helpful. My wife and I do not eat meat and at some previous game reserves we have felt like second class citizens. Not here, there was always a choice for us to make and the quality was very high. I would recommend Londolozi to anyone.
"Perfect safari experience!"
We have been to roughly 20 game lodges in South Africa and Londolozi Granite Suites is hands down the best safari lodge experience we have had by far. It is expensive but absolutely worth it! The rooms and setting are amazing, the staff are flawless, and the game viewing was spectacular. With a large traversing area and few vehicles we never queued for a siting and were never rushed so that someone else in the queue could have their turn. The rangers are geared for photographers and position the vehicle for the best photo opportunities possible. The photographic studio and Lightroom instruction is great! Graeme the camp manager went out of his way to make sure that our every wish was fulfilled. Greg and Equaliser (the ranger and tracker team) made sure we saw everything we possible could. Equaliser spent hours on foot tracking male lions and leopards for us. We saw wild dog and cheetah in addition to the big 5. Our sightings included wild dog chasing a leopard up and tree and then trying to warn off a hyena that decided to join their pack. The food was amazing and included many healthy options. While we did not make use of the gym it is very well equipped. I had 2 massages while I was there and they were wonderful. Each room has a fold up massage table and I had my massages out on the room deck. A wonderfully relaxing experience with hippos in the water nearby and curious monkeys watching from the trees. This is a small lodge with only 3 suites so the experience is intimate but very friendly and relaxed. I canâ€™t wait to go back!
