Londolozi’s powerful combination of geography and wildlife creates the famous atmosphere that returning guests call the ‘Londolozi feeling.’ Londolozi is situated on the Sand River in the very heart of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve. This reserve forms part of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park, a vast and growing area that currently covers six million acres and incorporates the famous Kruger National Park. Wild animals move freely across this sprawling space, offering spectacular game viewing and a true wilderness experience. Breeding herds of elephant and buffalo roam throughout Londolozi, while white rhino and lion concentrations are among the highest recorded on the African continent. Yet it’s the leopards of Londolozi that make the reserve world famous for wildlife, and the big cats lie at the heart of the Londolozi feeling. Over the course of three decades, a unique relationship has developed between the rangers and trackers and generations of wild leopards. Intimate leopard sightings are frequent, and guests agree it is a pinnacle life experience.
Londolozi believes in safari as a journey that delights the senses and enlivens the spirit — to have an encounter with wild animals in the African bush is to discover an essential truth about ourselves and the world.
