Children on Safari

‘Explore. Dream. Discover.’  – Mark Twain

At Londolozi there has always been an emphasis on family. Over the past century four generations have adventured, dreamed and discovered here. The bushveld of Londolozi is a wild wonderland, a child’s dream come true, and we delight in being able to share her secrets with the next generation.

The Londolozi Cubs programme ensures that everyday is filled with fun and fascination; and our ‘young rangers’ gain far more than just an understanding of their role in managing and conserving Africa’s incredible biodiversity. At Londolozi children learn about themselves, other people and cultures, about building friendships and trust, and about survival in the wilderness – every new skill equipping them for an abundant life.

The Cubs Programme takes place long after the ‘cubs’ leave Londolozi as we encourage all children to read, watch and participate in our ‘Cubs Den Blog’.  To see the latest story from the Cubs Den – CLICK HERE

Like all good cubs the bush adventure begins in the safety of the Den. The Cub’s Den is equipped to delight your children, with fish ponds to splash around in, Land Rovers to “drive”, campout tents and an educational centre where wildlife takes centre stage.

Bushveld excursions are guided by the Cub Coach, a dedicated and expert naturalist, who oversees all the children’s activities and can make even dung spitting seem like a palatable idea!

  • Paper Mache
  • Candle Making
  • Baking
  • Spoor identification
