‘Teaching children about the natural world should be seen as one of the most important events in their lives’ – Thomas Berry

Londolozi has always emphasized the importance of 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 program ensures that every day 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, about other cultures, about building friendships and trust, and about survival in the wilderness. They are introduced to a world rich in confidence and wonder – and a lot of fun!

As it is for all cubs, the bush adventure begins in the safety of the den. The Cub’s Den is designed for pure delight: it has 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 expert naturalist who oversees all the children’s activities and can make even dung spitting seem like a palatable idea!

Activities include:

  • Spoor identification
  • Bird watching
  • Bug catching
  • African dance
  • Bead making
  • Singing and drumming
  • Dung spitting

Varty and Founders camp both accommodate children between the ages of six and 16 years old.

Children of six years and over are welcome on game drives.
