The Londolozi Private Game Reserve’s name is derived from the Zulu meaning ‘protector of all living things’ and this reserve more than embraces its namesake’s philosophy as one of South Africa’s pioneers in long-term nature conservation. Nelson Mandela, the reserve’s most distinguished guest, once said: ‘I had the rare privilege to visit Londolozi. There I saw people of all races living in harmony amidst the beauty that Mother Nature offers. Londolozi represents a model of the dream I cherish for the future of nature preservation in our country.'
Home to the Big 5 and renowned as a predator’s paradise, Londolozi allows guests to observe its magnificent creatures on Bush Walks and twice-daily Game Drives. The different camps and lodges cater for a variety of guests from honeymooners to families. Greet the day with a yoga class in the bush or wade in swimming pools overlooking the landscape beyond. Dine al fresco while the canopy of stars in the night sky twinkles overhead.
The reserve is keen on wildlife rehabilitation and protection that goes hand-in-hand with community upliftment. Londolozi’s emphasis on protecting the natural splendour of the African bush has been paired with luxury and exclusivity. Visitors can reach Londolozi via a road transfer from Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport or from the Londolozi Airstrip which services direct flights from Johannesburg.
