overview

Londolozi Tree Camp is rated by many as the most beautiful camp in Africa, and takes its name from the ancient Ebony tree shading the main deck. This large wooden deck, raised on high stilts off the ground, looks out over the Sand River and is the perfect place for relaxing afternoon game viewing over lunch and, perhaps, a chilled glass of wine.

Activities are geared to your needs, and no two days are ever the same. Dawn and dusk game drives traverse an area of some 14 000ha in search of elephant herds, buffalo, white rhino, lion and of course the famous leopards of Londolozi. You may request the sole use of a vehicle for game viewing, or explore the bush on foot with interpretive bush walks. Your game viewing experience can be complemented by many other memorable activities such as moonlit bush dinners, bush baths, guided stargazing trips, bird watching and visits to the Shangaan village. The wellness centre is designed for yoga, massage and fitness, with mobile yoga floors which are set up in beautiful outdoor locations.

Traveller Reviews

  • The best place to be was Londolozi : the lodge was great. The Safari -Trip special, adventurous and very interesting. We had a surprising breakfast in the bush and great evenings together with the staff or other guests. We will never forget this trip to South Africa! Thanks a lot for your efforts.

    Sonja Amport, April 2014
  • Thanks to you and Go2Africa we had the best vacation ever. The Cape Grace hotel was very welcoming and comfortable, of course the Londolozi Camp and animal drives was the most exciting. Our guide Telley Smith was outstanding, articulate, knowledgeable, and good with people. Your arrangements timing and personal care helped the most.

  • Londolozi was the highlight of the honeymoon. We have been fortunate to travel quite a bit, and the level of service provided here surpassed anything we have ever experienced. It went beyond service, they made us feel part of the family. It is a truly special place, and we would love to return there. Of the various camps, we are so happy we choose Tree Camp. It was small enough to make it very personal (only 12 people), but also gave us the opportunity to get to meet and chat with other travelers. And the rooms were truly luxurious. The game viewing was also unbelievable. It was also appreciated that they minimized the number of people to 6 per truck – which helped to make the experience so much more intimate. I would also highlight to future guests that Londolozi offers complimentary laundry and also allows guests to rent camera equipment (lenses, and tripods) – both useful when trying to pack efficiently for such a trip.

  • It was the trip of a lifetime and we hope to do it again. All of your arrangements were excellent. Your choice of lodges was perfect. We loved both Shumbalala (Allen's favorite) and Londolozi (Helen's favorite). The rooms at Londolozi were the most luxurious and spacious we have ever had, almost too spacious for us and not as cozy, but no complaints. Allen loved the outdoor showers at both places. The food at Shumbalala, prepared by Lynn, was stupendous. It was also very delicious at Londololozi but Lynn really outdid herself. She met with all of us every day to tailor the meals and snacks to our requests. Londolozi had wide open spaces and a greater variety of vegetation that was beginning to turn brownish. Thus, at Londolozi game viewing was generally easier. The variety of game we saw was stupendous, not to mention the birdlife which surprised us and especially delighted Allen. We saw lions (males, females and cubs), elephants, giraffe, wilderbeast, warthogs, impala, rhinoceros (white and black), water buffalo, hippos, and African wild dogs in abundance. We saw animals we did not even know existed. We saw three leopards, two at close range (at Londolozi which we learned was the more likely place as they had more of them). We saw two cheetah kills, one at each lodge, the second from start to finish and with two cubs in tow. Our guides, Wiehan at Shumbalala and James at Londolozi, were incredibly knowledgeable, articulate and interesting. Our trackers, Palance at Shumbalala, and Mike at Londolozi, pointed the way to some incredible sightings. We felt we were not only tracking and seeing beautiful animals but also learning a lot about them, almost like hunting. Our guides' command of the vehicles and knowledge of the animals meant we always felt safe. All of our senses were in play and our minds were thoroughly engaged. We had many photo opportunities, often going off road to pursue lions, African wild dogs, a cheetah kill, or a leopard. We grew accustomed to the routine at the lodges, even getting up at 5:30 am, and miss it even now, especially the feeling of excitement when you mount the Land Rover in the morning at what you might see in the glorious sunrise. In short, we are quite hooked.

  • Having been to Londolozi Tree Camp once before, we were greeted by all the staff like old friends and saw lots of animals including leopards. Without a doubt one of the best run Safari Lodges in South Africa.

    Joachim Leyer, May 2012
  • The holiday was absolutely fantastic we really enjoyed each and every part of it. Particularly I would say that staying at Ulusaba Rock Lodge, followed by Londolozi was fantastic and staying at them in that order also seemed to be the most appropriate way to do things as the more group atmosphere of Ulusaba was a great start followed up by the more private nature of Londolozi.

    Jason O'Brien, September 2010
  • The trip was absolutely wonderful! The properties of Kensington Place, Baines Camp, Chobe Chilwero and Londolozi Tree Camp were absolutely 100% fantastic. We loved our accomodations and would highly recommend these camps/lodges/hotels to others. I can't say enough positive things about the rooms and the staff.

    Alex Tiller, September 2009
  • I must say that it was even better than what I was expecting. Service was just perfect and we were also lucky enough to have wonderful animal sightings. As you said, Tree Camp was a must. We loved it! Everyone in both Varty Camp and Tree Camp made our stay very special helping in everything we needed. Food was excellent , to the point that we should start a diet today to recover from our great food experience during the last days! Everything was great and we had no problem at all throughout our trip.

"Londolozi Tree Camp is incredible. Tree Camp embodies the very essence of the wilderness feeling. This is a place of great food and service, romance, luxury and wow. Imagine spending lazy afternoons on your decks, champagne in hand as you survey the landscape and elephants feeding below in the river. The lodge is Elegant and simplistic. In every detail and feature, this exclusive camp provides a showcase of African excellence."
