Seated in the Sabi Sands Game Reserve, in South Africa, Londolozi is a lush safari getaway for those who want to be pampered in the wild. Londolozi is one of the original pioneering lodges of the ecotourism industry in South Africa and an unashamedly family run, stand alone operation. The root of the word Londolozi is in the Zulu word for protect and means “protector of all living things” – an ambitious conservation ethic that Londolozi embraces in its sensitivity to the natural world. The reserve is internationally recognised for its far-sighted and progressive management of land and wildlife rehabilitation as well as productive community involvement.. World renowned as one of Africa’s finest game lodges, Londolozi was the first game reserve in the world to be accorded Relais et Chateaux status, reinforcing its commitment to luxurious accommodation, fine cuisine and exceptional service.
Pioneer Camp is steeped in the early history of Londolozi. Eighty years ago, the Varty and Taylor ancestors arrived after three days of hard travel by rail, wagon and foot. They pitched their tents in the failing light. When the dawn broke, they beheld an ancient land of breathtaking beauty. Unique, peaceful and remote, this untrammeled wilderness is still the defining essence of Pioneer Camp.
A 500-year-old riverine forest throws dappled light on the three exclusive suites and provides a dramatic backdrop for the camp’s celebration of the past. The Old English indulgence reflects our heritage with an African twist. The influences are evident in the elegant cream interiors, silver teapots and Portmeirion crockery. Guest suites are themed with historic memorabilia, telling a story of a bygone era and furnishing an environment of leisurely indulgence.

At Londolozi, superb cuisine is considered a essential part of the experience and a vital component of our holistic philosophy. We choose every ingredient with care, favouring organic produce, free range game and herbs from our kitchen garden to create dishes that are irresistibly delicious and promote health. As our intention is always to honour the earth, in our cooking we ensure that our seafood dishes are guided by the Southern African Sustainable Seafood Initiative and that the number of imported ingredients are kept to a minimum. Our recipes are a source of great pride as many have been handed down through generations or were created in the Londolozi kitchens, which are the domain of world class chefs. Londolozi meals are a feast for the senses, whether in the camp dining room, around the boma campfire or in the bushveld under a starlit sky.
