” Carpe Diem! Rejoice while you are alive; enjoy the day; live life to the fullest; make the most of what you have.” - Horace
At Londolozi the Varty family has refined the menu of activities to include a unique blend of senses and soul, creating an offering of sophisticated style and adventure that has recaptured the subtle essence of the Swahili word for journey – ‘Safari’.
At Londolozi we offer spectacular Big 5 game drives in our extensive wildlife area with unsurpassed leopard viewing but this is just the beginning of what really constitutes “the Londolozi experience”. Londolozi is the ideal space to escape from the rigours of everyday existence, to shift into a full appreciation of the moment and awaken the senses. With this in mind we have created tailor-made activities to help recuperate mind, body and spirit.
Take your pick, the list is virtually endless; silent wilderness immersions, interpretation and learning, spiritual journeying, adventure & adrenalin, massage, yoga, clay pigeon shooting, all day wilderness trekking, poetry, theatre, friendship and wide open spaces.

SLEEPOUTS AT THE LOOKOUT
The lookout is a secure, raised timber deck which is transformed into a luxurious and romantic ‘bed in the bush’ for exclusive sleep outs.
ALL DAY WALKING EXPEDITIONS
Exploring on foot (in the company of a ranger) is really encouraged at Londolozi as a means of truly engaging in the natural environment.
The reserves river systems offer wonderful fishing. Bream, catfish, tilapia and occassionally tigerfish are commonly caught.
