"Londolozi could well be one of the most forward-thinking emotional-wellness offerings in southern Africa right now"
- Condé Naste Traveller Magazine, The Spa Guide, 2019
At Londolozi, we believe in honouring ancient ways, harmony in flow and the rhythms of nature.
After four decades of delivering a photographic safari immersion to discerning international safari travellers, we believe that the time is now to create a new space which allows the Londolozi wilderness to become our enduring source of wellness.
Our hope is that at the Londolozi Healing House, situated at Varty Camp, you will rediscover what it means to be human, and attuned to the natural world.
The Londolozi Healing House is a place of remembering, a shift from the world of doing into the world of being, a chance to re-discover your own nature and access a deep and natural intelligence which lies within the still core of your own wild self.
The Londolozi Healing House experience will help you to combine the core safari excursions with artful resting, curated bodywork and yoga in the surrounds of the expansive wilderness presence of Londolozi. We have crafted some special activities for true rejuvenation, restoration and transformation.
Working with our trained Wellness Practitioners, Therapists and Wilderness Guides, we invite you to commune with the African wilderness and to find within you a sense of wellbeing. In the hurried world of today, true luxury is time to oneself in search of self-healing and connection to nature. The Londolozi Healing House is a place where time will allow for intangible magic, stillness and contemplation to stir deep within you.
“Wilderness reminds us what it means to be human, what we are connected to rather
than what we are separate from." – Terry Tempest Williams
The Londolozi Healing House Retreat
November / December 2019
This 5 day retreat is a curated experience based in the ethos of the Londolozi Healing House. It encompasses time in the wilderness, with vision-questing on game drive, guided meditation, intensive bodywork, customized meal planning, yoga and time spent immersed in the silence of nature.
Yoga means ‘union’ in Sanskrit, referring to the bringing together of mind, body and spirit. Postures practiced at Londolozi include Iyengar, Ashtanga, Jivamukti and Tripsichore. The classes are suitable for beginner and intermediate levels and are conducted on the Londolozi Yoga Deck, a wonderful sanctuary suspended high in the arms of a 500-year-old ebony tree. Inclusive daily classes are held whilst nyala, bushbuck and monkeys abound. On special occasions elephants will move through the riverine bushveld below.
Join us to greet the sun or strengthen the vital life of the body alongside the cool rush of the Sand River.
Londolozi’s fully equipped gym offers running, cycling and rowing machines which allow for a perfect workout, complemented by a daily routine of eating well and relaxing into harmony with nature. The gym is situated in Varty Camp and is open to all guests.
