Situated within six million hectares of pristine wilderness, Londolozi has been owned and run by the Varty family for more than 90 years. The word Londolozi comes from the Zulu language and means “protector of all living things”. Endorsed by Nelson Mandela, who described it as “a dream I cherish for a model of nature preservation in our country”, it is one of the best places in the world to see leopards in the wild (leopards.londolozi.com).
Some of Londolozi’s most popular features are its state-of-the-art photographic studio, where it offers professional-grade gear rentals, photo editing tuition and the facility to print your own safari moments on canvas (photography. londolozi.com) and it’s first-of-its-kind safari Healing House—a place where wellness has been returned to wilderness. Here, you rediscover what it means to be human, attuned to the natural world.
Londolozi’s powerful combination of geography and wildlife creates the famous atmosphere that returning guests call the “Londolozi feeling”. Wild animals move freely, 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. Over the course of more than four decades, a unique relationship has developed between their rangers and trackers and generations of wild leopards. Guests agree intimate leopard sightings are a pinnacle life experience. The Varty family believe in safari as a journey that immerses the senses and awakens the spirit. To encounter wild animals in the bush is to discover an essential truth about ourselves and our world.

We deliver the latest technology, the customised safari vehicle, the expertise, the experience and most importantly, the magic.” A few years ago, gathered around a winter campfire, the leaders of the Londolozi vision asked a new question: Where do ‘innovation’ and &…Read More
