ACTIVITIES:


Game Drives

Game drives at Londolozi are taken by professional, passionate and knowledgeable rangers and trackers, who amongst them have a wealth of 350 years of experience. With over 16 000 hectares of traversing wilderness, no two game drives are ever the same. Trackers sit up at the front of the Land Rover looking for fresh animal tracks, while rangers drive with astonishing skill into ravines and through thicket in pursuit of elusive animals, simultaneously wowing guests with their outstanding knowledge and unforgettable stories.Many of the rangers and trackers at Londolozi grew up living off the land in these parts and therefore have an unmatched knowledge of both the area and the elements of nature within this wilderness wonderland. Londolozi boasts two of South Africa’s only 17 master trackers, which only adds to the excellence of the team and the experience they are able to deliver.



Bush Walks

Suitable for the beautiful balmy bushveld days in May, June and July, there is nothing like walking in a winter wilderness. Drift down a game trail into a dry riverbed. Feel the crisp morning rhythm of Africa with each step on the winding path as you let nature captivate you in her essence. There is no vehicle, no noise and no distractions. This is when nature speaks to you.



The Cubs Den

Our children’s programme is uniquely tailored for each child, many of whom are budding junior game rangers. Our approach is based on a personal interaction with each child and is energetic and flexible. We regard nature as the great educator and with no set routines we allow the child to discover the world of the outdoor classroom which surrounds them. Nature sets the agenda and we enable these young people to discover something of themselves.



Birding

The birdlife at Londolozi represents a magic of diversity in perpetual motion and offers the visitor an entirely new frontier in wilderness engagement. A wide array of sunbirds seeking nectar from the flowering aloes is winter’s gift to the discerning birder, not to mention the other 450 species which abound in these landscapes. Many fine ornithologist guides reside at Londolozi.


Tracking

The ancient art of tracking has been uniquely preserved at Londolozi. The combined wisdom of the Londolozi tracking team spans over 200 years of tracking experience. Our guests, during winter, are privileged to be able to witness this ancient art. On foot in search of the big cats, as well as Rhino and Buffalo…downwind…in silence…not moving a muscle and in very close proximity, is an experience which demands all your attention and which leaves you with indelible memories. Winter is the perfect time to pursue Africa’s most alluring wildlife; whilst in the presence of a master tracker applying an ancient art, miles from any Land Rove



Astronomy Lectures

Have you ever been introduced to the wonderment of the great universe? Latest pictures from the Hubble telescope open up an entirely new world of discovery which tells us of endless space beyond comprehension. At Londolozi the rangers are trained to take you on a mystical late night journey ofreflection and introspection. On a cold, clear winter’s night, looking at the stars whilst holding a warm mug of hot chocolate makes for a truly memorable evening.



Campfires - Storytelling - Red Wine

Campfires, storytelling, red wine and good company are the hallmark of any winter safari. Coming from a long line of storytellers, Londolozi’s history is steeped in the tradition of campfire yarns told late into the night. In each of the 5 exclusive camps you can hear the whispers of our ancestors and embodied in our history, are the legends and myths of the mysteries and adventures of safari. Each camp has its own spirit and each has its own campfire which awaits you.



Londolozi Photographic Safari

Bush Breakfast & Adventure Picnics

Imagine reclining in a comfortable chair surrounded by 6 million acres of African wilderness. This is the adventure picnic and bush breakfast experience, reminiscent of a bygone era when the highlight of any winter morning, after hours of walking, was the “Hunter’s Breakfast”. There is no reason to rush back to camp for breakfast when you can savor gourmet salmon and scrambled eggs with your feet in the sand on the banks of a river enjoying a balmy winter’s morning

Londolozi Varty Camp Outside View

As Londolozi’s original camp, Varty embraces the conservation principles of generations of the Varty and Taylor families, dedicated to providing a sanctuary for wild life. Varty Camp’s central thatched living area overlooks the magnificent Sand River, where you can relax in comfort while you take in the views. The living spaces are positioned under the shade of trees, raised off the ground by wooden platforms. The camp’s holistic approach to an African safari means that there are many things to keep you occupied both in camp and out in the bush.

We have crafted some special activities for true rejuvenation, restoration and transformation.

Also found within Varty Camp is the newly appointed Healing House – a concept that takes you beyond the spa, with a beautiful return of wellness to wildness. Bodywork (massage) and specialised alternative wellness treatment facilities are available. The charming “original Sparta Camp” is also located in the heart of Varty Camp representing where Londolozi began in 1926.
