Accommodation in Sabi Sand Game Reserve

Londolozi Founders Camp - Londolozi Private Game Reserve

World renowned as one of Africa’s finest game lodges, Londolozi provides luxurious accommodation, fine cuisine and exceptional service. It is situated on the Sand River at the very heart of the Sabi Sands Game Reserve. This reserve in turn forms part of the Greater Limpopo Transfrontier Park, a vast and growing area, currently covering 6 million acres and incorporating the famous Kruger National Park.

This rich wild wonderland assures exceptional game drives and a true wilderness experience. Breeding herds of elephant and buffalo roam throughout the Londolozi area ,while white rhino and lion concentrations are amongst the highest recorded on the African continent.

Founders Camp is very secluded in the thickly forested riverine environment of the Sand River bank. Five air-conditioned chalets and one suite are linked by a series of meandering pathways where it is not unusual to come across a shy bushbuck grazing on the pathside shrubs.

Blending with the tree canopy, thatched split-level dining and viewing decks are suspended above a quiet bywater of the river where superb meals of Pan-African cuisine are served amid the chorus of African birdsong.

Room Description

Enchanting and intimate, Founder's Camp is ideally situated to provide an insider's view on the secrets of river life. There are Five idyllic chalets in the shade of ancient Ebony and Matumi trees along the banks of the Sand River.

This is safari in the classic style, replete with classic black and cream ticking fabric and original mahogany beds. Deep leather couches, military chests, compass safari lamps and a riverside lounge sala, create a mood of easy luxury and laid back welcome for discerning families and travellers.
